How to stop 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.

Here are five fresh tips to help you overcome and reduce excessive sweating in stressful situations:

1. Try to reduce your anxiety levels

Deep breathing is one of the simplest ways to calm yourself down.

Breathe in slowly, hold your breath at the top for approximately three seconds and exhale fully and slowly. Do this at least three times (10 if you have the time) and you should instantly start to relax.

3. Avoid common sweat triggers

Caffeine, spicy food, cigarettes and alcohol affect your adrenaline levels and hormones and 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, freshest results.

2. Think positively

Intentionally trying to shift your perspective in a stressful situation can help your body respond more calmly.

For example, instead of starting to panic when your palms getting sweaty or your heart-rate rises, try to interpret these signs as excitement instead. Trick your mind into thinking it’s experiencing something positive such as hearing your name called out as the winner at an awards ceremony.

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
