Nothing is worse than putting on your favorite summer dress on a hot day only to have it ruined by a bucket of sweat. It shouldn’t be so difficult to make a personal style statement!
Sweating is your body’s way of lowering your body’s temperature when it rises, particularly during and after a heart-pumping activity such as a workout. Nevertheless, sweating excessively outside of the gym can be embarrassing.
What Causes Excessive Sweating?
Excessive sweating is caused by a variety of factors, including diet, hormones, anxiety, and the weather. In the case of hyperhidrosis, it is said to be caused by a problem in the nervous system.
How to Stop Excessive Sweating
If you’d like to keep your sweat under control but it’s not that bad, try avoiding high-fat milk, excess sodium, and garlic. You should also avoid alcohol, caffeine, and smoking.
Caffeine causes the central nervous system to enter flight or fight mode, causing the body to produce excess adrenaline, causing the sweat glands to work overtime. Nicotine causes our bodies to release acetylcholine, a chemical that stimulates sweat glands, whereas alcohol causes vasodilation (widening of blood vessels), which transports heat to the skin’s surface.
That said, if your armpits and under-chest area are constantly as wet as a rainforest, even in the winter, it may be time to seek more permanent solutions. Surgery and elective current therapy can both be beneficial. However, if you want a treatment that is virtually painless and has minimal downtime, Botox is the way to go.
If you suffer from excessive sweating, Botox is a game-changer because it paralyzes the sweat glands, preventing nerve signals from being received. The effects can last up to eight months, but to get the most out of your treatment, we recommend working with a practitioner who has completed Empire Medical Training courses. This way, you can rest assured that you will receive only the best possible care.
Ways to Guarantee Excessive Sweat Won’t Ruin Your Clothes This Summer
- Wear Deodorant Before Bed
Your sweat volume is higher during the day, so when you put on deodorant in the morning, it wears off before you can reap its full benefits. Wearing deodorant at night gives it time to get into sweat-blocking mode.
- Choose Your Fit and Fabric Wisely
On your next shopping spree, go for fabrics made from natural fibers like cotton that pull moisture away from your body and allow your skin to breathe. Select clothing with a slightly looser fit and weave. Tight weaves make for hotter clothes (no, we’re not talking about style here).
- Use Disposable Underarm Shields
Disposable underarm shields protect your clothes from wet-thru, stains, and odors. They have a waterproof back layer and an absorbent top layer. The icing on the cake? They work on all fabrics including wool(not like you should be wearing this in the summer!)
And there you have it: an excessive sweat-free summer!
