1. PRACTICE CONSCIOUS DE-STRESSING TECHNIQUES
Consider meditation and yoga as a way of managing stress and anxiety.
Avoiding anxious and uncomfortable situations may not always be possible, but you can work to alleviate the stress associated with them. There are even courses in public speaking and business dealings which can help you cope and excel in stressful situations.
2. AVOID STRESS SWEATING
Feeling stressed can make you sweat more but if you’re already sweating, that in itself can cause you to feel stressed and anxious.
NIVEA’s Stress Protect deodorant can restore your confidence when your body starts to sweat. It can help avoid discomfort or further stress when you’re faced with something difficult.
3. KEEP YOUR HANDS CLEAN
Wash your hands regularly to remove odours and keep them fresh. Try not to use soap too often, though – it can dry out your skin and make your hands sweat more.
4. KEEP SOME TALC HANDY
If your sweaty palms are making holding things tricky give them a light dusting of talcum or baby powder.
This will help with your grip and keep your hands drier for longer.
5. EAT THE RIGHT FOODS
A good start is to try and remove highly processed foods and refined sugars from your diet. These types of foods take a lot of effort for your body to digest and cause it to generate much more heat than normal.
Switch to whole grains, and if you need a sugar fix, snack on some naturally sweet fruit.
Spicy foods, peppers, and chillies will naturally make you heat up too. Look for calcium-rich foods like yoghurt to cool your body down. Calcium acts as a natural temperature regulator for the body, as does sage and peppermint.
Also, don’t forget to drink plenty of water. When your body is hydrated, it’s much easier for it to stay cool.
