The huge wet patches around your armpits may be really a worrying matter as it can instantly turn people off. So, it's very important to deal with it natural home remedies when it goes overboard.
When armpit sweating is coupled with bacteria, a foul odor gets produced. This is the worst part of sweating. Using perfumes and deodorants wouldn't come to rescue to avoid the odor. You need to understand the fact that mostly this is due to bacteria, not because you didn't take a bath or you didn't use the proper soap. The first thing you could try is diet control. There are few food items which really accelerate sweating and body odor. Next, you could try some lifestyle changes. You should also try to maintain a better personal hygiene. These measures will generally reduce the sweating and odor, however, if it is induced by bacteria, you may need to take the necessary steps to keep the bacteria in check.
Trying to cover up the sweat by wearing heavy clothes will only worsen the situation, it may increase the sweat. However, you may use garment pads to wipe out the sweat. You are also advised to shave your armpits, which will be helpful in reducing the sweat to a great extent. You can also be bit careful with the color you wear, as dark colors have the ability to attract heat and white color can reflect heat. So, make sure that you wear light colored dresses if you are worried about excessive sweating and odor. Also, avoid using tight dresses, because they can limit air circulation.
One interesting fact related to excessive sweating is that it is not much related to weather conditions, that you can sweat even in cold climate conditions. You should know the importance of water intake to reduce sweating, as drinking lots of water can help maintain your body temperature. This may be news to you that body temperature can raise without the presence of water. It's true, so make sure that you drink at least 8-10 glasses of water daily to avoid excessive sweating.
Our next suggestion is to stay away from synthetic fabric cloths. They will reduce the air circulation and will naturally invoke sweating. We recommend cotton cloths for those who complain about excessive sweating, especially during summer season. Linen cloths would also be good.
Next, we suggest you to be strict on your hygiene. Don't forget to take a bath on every day, as it will kill the bacteria which cause the odor. You may take bath twice a day in case sweating and odor is beyond control. However, we suggest cold water for bath unless otherwise the climate is too cold, because hot water may cause temporary sweating right after the shower. Hot water would probably increase your body temperature temporarily. You can also use antiperspirant after the shower.
You may also take one tablespoon of apple cider vinegar on a daily basis. Drink it with a glass of water; results will be visible after several weeks. Otherwise, apply malt vinegar on your armpits before you go to bed every night, and wash it off in the morning. This home remedy has been found effective in many people.
