At Ava MD, we are dedicated to bringing out the best you that you can ask for. And sweaty underarms are a no-no for the enterprising man or woman who want to always be bringing their A-game in any aspect of their lives. Excessive sweating, or hyperhidrosis, is a condition affecting 1-3% % of Americans. Most people may think that this is an extremely difficult condition that can put you in awkward situations, but we say that there are some easy ways that you can get hyperhidrosis under control, with the help of natural remedies and tweaking your lifestyle habits.
- Whenever you can, avoid eating spicy food or ingesting caffeine. We understand that some of you cannot resist your daily dose of coffee, or steer clear of your favorite burrito stand, but these can stimulate your sweat glands and cause excessive sweating.
- Did you know that applying your antiperspirant at night will give it more than enough time to go into your pores, permeate your sweat glands and block perspiration the next day? Well, now you do. You’re welcome.
- You have over 4 million sweat glands on your entire body that produces sweat to cool you down. So apart from your armpit, you can try and apply antiperspirant on areas like your hands, feet, back, and even the chest to control excessive sweating. Trying not to do so on your face and groin areas, though, because these areas are sensitive and could become irritated.
