As a self confessed sweater, I would do anything to help stop the drip. Your reasons for sweating may be due to stress and the weather, but may be due to genetics, health and medication. Whatever your reasons for sweating are, nobody wants to have it. Luckily, I’ve managed to come across some really helpful tips that will teach you how to decrease sweating.
How To Decrease Sweating
Clinical Protection Antiperspirant
Try and find an extra strength antiperspirant to help decrease the sweat! Also, don’t just apply in the morning, use it at night as well!
Caffeine is definitely one of my triggers. I find that if I drink a lot of coffee, I will literally feel like I’m melting, and likely look like I am too. If you’re a coffee addict, try switching to decaf instead!
Stop Eating Certain Foods
Spicy and fatty foods can be a big trigger for a lot of people. Try cutting these down, or completely out of your diet if you can.
Wear The Right Things
If you sweat a lot, you’re likely going to want to hide away in black clothing so that the patches aren’t visible, but dark colours attract more heat from the sun, leading you to sweat more! Try wearing baggier, lighter clothing.
Get Out Them Period Pads!
To reduce the amount of underarm sweat stains, pop a period pad inside each of the arms of your top. The pads will soak up the sweat rather than your t-shirt!
Sweating is more common in those who are larger. Losing weigh wont stop you sweating completely, but it will have a massive effect.
Getting Medication From A Doctor
There are many different tablets out there that the doctor can prescribe for you to use. I haven’t personally tried these, or know anyone who has, so I cannot guarantee how effective they are. Speak with your doctor and see if there is anything they can do.
This is something which I’m currently looking into. I don’t think they do this at hospitals (please correct me if I’m wrong), but a lot of beauty salons can do this procedure. If you do end up going down the botox route, please, please, PLEASE make sure that they are licensed and fully trained.
