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, certain meat, spicy foods, deep fried and fatty foods, fast food, junk food and caffeine can all make your body release more sweat. On the flip side, certain foods are much better at helping reduce sweating; fruit and veg in particular and foods that promote healthy digestion – as if your digestion is off, your body will produce more sweat. If you are prone to sweating, leave oil-based products and stick to foods such as cucumber, celery, spinach etc to aid healthy digestion.
3. STOCK UP ON STRONG ANTIPERSPIRANTS
Antiperspirants 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 antiperspirant regularly and choose one that suits your situation.
NIVEA’s Everyday Active Fresh is great for controlling sweat when you are working out.
