Excessive sweating can be nasty and embarrassing. It really is a shame that so many people are dealing with this every day. It is estimated that over 1% of the human population, suffers from the excessive sweating condition known as Hyperhidrosis. When dealing with this monster it is important to take a look into some natural perspiration remedies before making that trip to the doctor.
What is Hyperhidrosis and what are the symptoms?
Everyone sweats but some people sweat abnormally. When I say abnormal I mean way more than others and not from normal places on the body. The palms, Head, face, scalp and feet are just to name a few. If you sweat in places all over your body even when your body isn't under stress you may have a case of Hyperhidrosis.
How to deal with it?
Currently there are so many different methods out there that range from Botox treatment to surgery. These are not always the best of options for there is risk involved not to mention very costly. These methods should be attempted only after natural, safer methods have been tried. There are Natural methods that are worth trying before putting yourself at risk.
Tip # 1 Good Hygiene
I'm not saying you don't take good care of yourself, but you would not believe the amount of people that do not take care to the importance of proper hygiene. There may be more to your sweating problem then hygiene but the first thing you should do is evaluate how well you take care of yourself. Shower regularly and wear deodorant.
Tip # 2 Shave those pits
Now some guys may not feel comfortable shaving there armpits but anyone suffering from Hyperhidrosis should at least consider it. One cause of odor is due the sweat being absorbed into the hairs. If left long enough the dried sweat will begin to form bacteria and thus release that all too familiar smell of body odor. Through the act of simple shaving the odor can be reduced and it might feel good not having all that hair clogging up your pits.
Tip # 3 Sprinkle on a little baking soda
You may not have known but baking soda can do wonders for the body. Aside from whitening your teeth, if you just apply a little to your dry armpits it can greatly decrease sweat by absorbing moisture. And even better! It won't mask the odor, it'll eat the odor!
Tip # 4 Wear clothes with air flow
For a Hyperhidrosis sufferer clothes of the natural fiber persuasion are the way to go! Materials like polyester don't allow air to flow through it as easily as cotton and natural clothing would. It is important for the air to flow otherwise the same air will remain inside your clothes. After a long day that air can get pretty hot, sweaty and stinky. So try to wear loose, comfortable clothing and stay away from the leather pants.
All of these are great ways to reduce the symptoms of Hyperhidrosis. I recommend giving these a shot and deciding what works best for you.
