Sweating is totally normal. It is our body’s way of cooling us down. We know this. We also know that a great way to lose weight is to step into a sauna and sweat off 11lbs. However, we also know that there is nothing that we say that will make us enjoy sweating. Especially excessive sweating. Urgh. We feel the same about excessive sweating as we do about watching Jersey Shore – it’s tolerable in small doses so long as there is plenty of time between each episode. Otherwise, it is unbearable.
Yes, excessive sweating is annoying. But it goes well beyond that for so many people. It hits our confidence, holds us back at work, makes us embarrassed, and sees us, well, hide a little. That’s not what life’s about. Life is about living confidently and shining bright like the miracle we are.
That’s why finding a way to slow or stop those sweat glands from overworking can be an absolute game-changer. So, to help you on your quest of perspiring less and living more, we have come up with a list of quick tips that could leave you with armpits drier than the Sahara in summer.
If you have sweat glands that are working too hard then you are going to need an antiperspirant deodorant that is going to work harder too. In scientific terms, you are looking for a clinical version, something that has a whole load of aluminum chloride swimming about in it, at least twelve percent. To put a smile on your face, you can get these over the counter, so you don’t even have to wait. Just go-go-go.
When it comes to the battle against sweat and odor, one of the most popular mercenaries is MiraDry, which is a non-invasive treatment you may be able to sit back and enjoy at your family dermatologist. Here comes the real music to grace your ears, though, it is a solution that lasts. No applying it every other day, or once a week, or anything like that. Just pop in, get it done with minimal downtime, and live that life free of sweat you’ve always dreamed about.
Yup, your diet could be making your sweat glands cry harder than ever and, you guessed it, your sweat glands tears are super smelly. The big culprit on this front is spicy food. Your body reacts to spicy foods in the same way it reacts to warm weather and, as we all know, that isn’t ideal for those who disdain their sweatiness. The other things that are the pits (pun intended) are coffee and energy drinks. Bad. Very bad. In terms of foods that can help you beat back your sweat problem; fruit, vegetables, vitamin B’s, and calcium are all good.
We don’t actually have the figure but, judging by conversations we’ve had and the deodorizing patterns of ex-boyfriends and current girlfriends, we’d say 97% of people apply their deodorant wrongly. To make your antiperspirant most effective you should apply it at night. That’s because it takes time to build a wall around the sweat gland. The other reason is that we sweat very little at night, which is the optimum state for your antiperspirant. Clean and dry pits, that’s all it wants.
