We all know that summer is here and we will have to deal with the heat. But there are some ways that we can make life easier while the warm weather lasts. If you sweat excessively, this is important! The following list will give you some great tips and tricks for dealing with your sweat.
1. Use Moisturizer
Apply moisturizing lotion to your skin before going out in the sun. Even if you don’t think you’re sweating, you probably are. Applying a good quality sunscreen helps prevent the formation of sweat pores.
2. Don’t Overdo It
If you work out regularly, try to avoid exercising in hot weather. Exercising in warm conditions increases the amount of perspiration produced.
3. Drink Plenty Of Water
Drinking plenty of water throughout the day keeps your body well hydrated and reduces the chance of becoming dehydrated.
4. Wash Your Hands Often
Keeping your hands clean will help reduce the chances of getting a bacterial infection. Make sure to wash your hands after using public restrooms, shaking someone’s hand, touching money, etc.
5. Wear Loose Clothes
Wear loose clothing, especially shirts. When you sweat, it collects under tight-fitting clothes and forms puddles of moisture. These puddles act like little reservoirs, trapping sweat and bacteria. Wearing looser fitting clothes prevents these pockets from collecting sweat.
6. Keep A Fan On Hand
A fan blowing directly onto your armpits will keep them dry.
Sweating is a natural process that our body uses to regulate its temperature. Hyperhidrosis is a medical condition that causes excessive sweating.
Hyperhidrosis can be caused by various factors, such as emotional stress, obesity, or diabetes. It can also be caused by medications and other health conditions like hypothyroidism or an overactive thyroid gland (hyperthyroidism).
There are many ways to treat hyperhidrosis including medication, surgery and lifestyle changes like reducing caffeine intake and quitting smoking.
All in all, there are many ways to help reduce the amount you sweat and how much it shows!
