Top 7 Tips to Prevent Sweat this Summer

Summer is in full swing and I do not see anyone without sweat these days. While you can’t completely avoid this bodily function from happening, there are a few ways you can reduce the amount of sweat.

1. Don’t Take Cold Showers

I know what you’re thinking, “WHAT!? It’s boiling outside and you expect me to have a warm shower?” Yes, according to researches and a bit of common sense, taking a cold shower lowers your internal body temperature which eventually rises because it’s hot out. The satisfaction you feel is temporary and your body will sweat more profusely because your core temperature will increase quickly.

2. Try “Undershirts”

Undershirts work to make clothes fit better and look better. The anti-sweat undershirts absorb the sweat and do not show sweat stains. Try an anti-sweat tee from Knix; it has built-in, moisture-wicking underarm sweat pads to stop things from showing through and prevent odor too. The anti-sweat undershirts are truly a saving grace in the summers against sweat and unwanted sweat related stains.

3. Get a New Haircut

Ladies (and gents), while your mane of thick long hair looks good, we all know the silent suffering you go through when you leave it open and free in the summers. Avoid the hassle of tying and untying and tying them again and just get a haircut. It will grow back out, plus, with all these trendy hairstyles to follow, you will not have to worry about your hair sticking to you all the time.

4. Watch your Diet

No, not because you have put on weight. Some foods actually make people sweat more than usual. Take caffeine for instance, foods with caffeine in them can make your sweat glands work overtime because it contains a thing called acetylcholine. Watch out for spices as well because they tend to make you sweat more too.

5. Find the Right Clothes

Do not wear anything that fits too tightly no matter how good it looks. Same goes for the kind of materials you choose to wear. The thing is, when you wear anything that rubs against your skin, it causes you to generate more body heat, which leads to increased perspiration. And while I say don’t wear tight clothes, I also don’t mean wear a potato sack. Try these summer apparel trends along with perfumes and scents to feel fresh.

6. Carry a Facial Mist Spray

Whether you wear makeup or not, keep a tiny bottle of facial mist near you. These sprays really do make you feel like a new person on a hot day. Furthermore, if you do wear makeup, this stuff helps prevent it from melting off your face and keeps it glowing. It’s a win-win.

7. Seek Professional Help

While all the methods I discussed above will help reduce your sweat quota, if nothing works for you, I recommend seeking professional advice. Some health issues may also cause excessive sweating such as diabetes, hyperhidrosis and so on. They can be hereditary or non-hereditary and can either be serious or easily controllable. Either way, going to a skin specialist to get yourself examined is never a bad idea.
