How to Reduce Sweating

How to Reduce Sweating – A General Guide

Sweating can occur during all sorts of situations – when emotions are high, when
embarrassed, during intimate moments – in fact there is a fairly endless list. This can be a real source of embarrassment for many

If you sweat excessively you should seek medical advice from your doctor. Underlying causes can be diagnosed and they can professionally tell you how to reduce sweating through various medicines, treatments and tried and tested techniques.

There are other steps you can take that help you reduce sweating and help to increase your confidence and comfort levels. The following points show you how to reduce sweating under every day situations such as at the gym or during work.

Try higher strength to clinical strength antiperspirants that are far more
effective than your standard deodorants. There are many over the counter versions that have great ratings from hyperhidrosis sufferers and heavy sweaters alike. Of course there are also prescription only deodorants approved by the FDA. There’s a school of thought that these work better at night when it gives the deodorant time to work and clog the sweat du

Working Out

We all want to know how to reduce sweating in the gym and other workout situations. There are a few things you can do to help with this:

Clothing – Choose natural, breathable fabrics such as cotton to help wick sweat away from your body and to allow your body to breathe. This kind of clothing has come on in leaps and bounds in the past few years. There are literally hundreds of sports clothes to choose from – and have a fantastic range.

Footwear – Make sure you change your footwear often. Their are plenty of sweat absorbing socks and inserts available and many very low cost. Many sneakers (trainers for my British chums) are washable

Deodorants and Powders – Use the appropriate deodorants and foot powders that are designed for sports.

Sweating at Work

Sweating during work can be really embarrassing and hold you back during those meetings and social networking events. A simple bit of advice is to take antiperspirants with you to these things – let’s face it most guys have a man-bag these days! There are plenty of antiperspirants for hand application too should you get somewhat sweaty hands during these times. Don’t be afraid to reapply the antiperspirants at intervals during the day to keep the protection topped up.

Try to wear loose clothes in layer where possible. For the gentlemen, wearing a t-shirt or other under garment underneath your work shirt can help to absorb some of the sweat. There are also many underarm pads that you use to fully soak up armpit sweat during your working day. For the lady there are dress shields that do the same job and the use of an absorbent camisole top can be really helpful.

Many men carry a handkerchief with them, and this can be really helpful to wipe away that bit of sweat from your forehead or of course dab your hands so they’re not as sweaty.

Perhaps avoiding the lunchtime spicy foods would be a good option to reduce additional sweaty kickers. I don’t personally know anyone who has a full blown Madras during lunch but there are spicy foods even in salads, such as the friendly jalapeño.
