How To Control Excessive Sweating

August 17th, 2011  |  Published in Health, TIPS

Wear Breathable Fabrics: Avoid clothes made from synthetic material that stick to your skin. Wearing airy garments made of natural fiber does not cause too much sweating. Also steer clear of clothes that fit around your body too tightly, as they trigger sweat glands to overwork.

Powder up: Always use a good quality talcum powder, preferably a medicated talcum powder to banish excess sweat especially in areas where skin fold, such as under arms, or in between fingers. Go for anti-bacterial talc over a heavily scented one. The latter can at times cause skin allergies and rashes. Also habitually use a good deodorant to keep bad odour at bay.

Eat Well and Exercise: Avoid eating pungent foods like onion and garlic if you tend to sweat a lot. Working out regular also improves your body’s overall circulation, and make it easier for you to stay cool and sweat less.

Sip Herbal Teas: Sage tea is believed to help lessen sweating. Drink 2-3 cups of the tea daily to make your sweat glands less active.

Take Treatments: When none of the home remedies seem to work, you can opt for Botox treatment after consulting your dermatologist. Botox treatment can correct the overactive sweat glands and regulate them to maintain their normal sweating levels. This one-time treatment can gives relief for about 6-9 months.
