Ways to reduce sweating in some harmless ways

- First of all, increase your intake of water. This way your Kidneys can function better to get rid of wastes in form of urine. Water leads to cooling down of your body. This, in turn, leads to lowering down of the core temperature of your body. As a result, your body does not have to sweat excessively to keep your system temperature regulated.
- Any kind of stress can lead to activation of your parasympathetic system. This could be both at personal or professional levels. Sweating is a result of body switching in a negative mode. So, take up measures like exercising regularly, taking up meditation etc. to reduce your stress levels.
- Reduce the intake dehydrating drinks such as Tea, Coffee and Alcohol. Try avoiding spicy and fried foods. This is because these kinds of foods can stimulate your brain to release certain Neurotransmitters like Acetylcholine. Any kind of foods that stimulate these neurotransmitters lead to excess sweating.
- Avoid use of harsh soaps or deodorants. Instead, take bath with water to which a few drops of aromatic essential oils have been added.
- To help the sweat evaporate easily, wear only loosely fitted, cotton clothes.
- Least in hot and humid weather, stay away from synthetics and Silks.
- You need to shed those extra Pounds as well to cure heavy sweating.
- Take bath daily so that dried sweat and grime do not get accumulated on your skin.
- Consume more fruits and vegetables each day to aid in digestion. Digestive problems can lead to automatically producing more sweat. Some foods that can lead to cooling down of your body are:
- Bell peppers
- Olive Oil
