When we had the little heat wave the other week, did you yourself sweating a bit more than normal?
If you find that no matter the temperature that you sweat more than you’d like, there are a few steps you can take to curb it:
First – change what you eat – spicy food make us sweat, but so does sugar, caffeine, and alcohol – it all raises body temperature and makes us sweat, especially at night.
Drink more water – it might seem counterintuitive, but it will help to regular your body temperature.
Buy products that help – there are special full body anti-perspirants and wipes you can use.
Breathable clothing is important – you want clothes made of cotton, linen, and silk; not polyester, denim or fleece.
There’s also a chance you of something more serious – a condition called hyperhidrosis – so if these tricks don’t work, ask your doctor for advice.
