Stop Excessive Sweating

Excessive Sweating

Here are some great practical tips you can use to help overcome and reduce excessive sweating when faced with stressful situations.

HOW TO REDUCE EXCESSIVE SWEATING

Although emotional sweating is often brought on by sudden stressful situations, there are things you can do to prepare yourself for any situation. Let's have a look at some of the ways you can reduce the amount you sweat.

1. TRY TO REDUCE YOUR ANXIETY LEVELS

Sweating from anxiety is a natural and common bodily process. Take the following steps to not only help reduce your anxiety, but also prevent sweating. Deep breathing is one of the simplest ways to calm yourself down. Breathe in and out deeply and slowly for as long as possible and you should start to relax.


2. THINK POSITIVELY

Do your best to flip a negative situation or feeling into a positive one. Just shifting your perspective in a stressful situation, like getting up in front of a big audience, can help your body respond more calmly. So instead of feeling your palms getting sweaty, your heart-rate rising, and then starting to panic, try to interpret these signs as excitement instead. Trick your mind and body into thinking it is experiencing something positive like hearing your name called out as the winner at an awards ceremony, for example.


3. AVOID COMMON SWEAT TRIGGERS

Caffeine, spicy food, cigarettes and alcohol all affect your adrenaline levels and hormones, which can make you more prone to sweating. So, when you have a potentially stressful situation coming up, stick to clean eating and drinking for the driest, sweat-reduced results.


4. STAY HYDRATED

When your body is dehydrated, your glands will produce more sweat to try and cool you down. Do the cooling down yourself and keep a water bottle nearby.


5. WEAR THE BEST DEODORANT AND PASS YOUR STRESSFUL SITUATIONS WITH CONFIDENCE

TIPS TO PREVENT EXCESSIVE SWEATING

You can always take preventative measures if you're concerned about excessive sweating. Here are some of our top tips to avoid sweating profusely.
How to Sweat Less

1. TAKE A SHOWER

While personal hygiene doesn’t stop sweating, a good shower can wash away sweat, leaving you refreshed and more comfortable in your own skin. Bathing regularly with cleansing shower gels also help to clear your sweat glands and prevent build up in your pores.


2. AVOID OIL-BASED PRODUCTS

Some foods make you sweat more. Think spicy foods, junk food and caffeine – all of which can make your body release more sweat. On the flip side, fruit and vegetables are much better at helping reduce sweat. If you’re prone to sweating, leave oily foods on the back burner and stick to leafy greens to help with your digestion and reduce sweat.


3. STOCK UP ON STRONG ANTI-PERSPIRANTS

Anti-perspirants that contain aluminium salts can be used on the hands, underarms, back and other problem areas to help reduce excessive sweating. Don’t forget to apply your anti-perspirant regularly and choose one that suits your situation.

NIVEA’s Intense Protection Range is great for controlling sweat when you are working out.


Always read the label. Follow the directions for use.
