7 ways to get rid of excessive sweating

how to get rid of excessive sweating

Let’s face it. Your sweaty underarm is unsightly during a meeting. Your sweaty forehead and your body odor are really not very attractive on your first date. Your sweaty palms constantly smear your own handwriting and cause a big mess. 

Thankfully, you can do something about it. You can try these 7 steps before you seek help, or while you are trying out medical treatment! (Click here to learn more about medical treatment for hyperhidrosis)

1) Dress appropriately

Wear clothes made of light, breathable fabrics such as cotton and silk. Avoid wearing heavy clothes that will trap sweat.

2) Cut down on coffee, tea and chocolate

Most of us love a cup of coffee to start our day. Do you know that coffee can contribute to excessive sweating? Avoid taking excessive coffee, tea and chocolate. We know this is hard!

3) Avoid spicy food and alcohol.

Cut down on your beer when you hang out with your buddies. Why not a glass of orange juice? Healthier and tastier, and you do not have to worry about a sweaty underarm later.

4) Bathe or shower daily.

This is pretty obvious. If you do not shower, bacteria build up rapidly especially in areas like armpits and groin crease. With sweat, it gives u an embarrassing body odor.

5) Manage your stress.

Stress can cause sweating, and excessive sweating can cause stress. Easier said than done? Join a yoga club, or just set aside a little time every day to relax and meditate!

6) Tomato juice and wheatgrass juice.

Wonderful. You can enjoy these delicious juices while having less worry about your excessive sweating. Try taking one to two glasses of tomato or wheatgrass juice a day. You will be surprised how good they are.

7) Honey and apple cider vinegar.

Take a mixture of one table spoon of honey and one tea spoon of apple cider vinegar two to three times a day.

There are so many things you can do at home to help reduce your sweating. Try them and you may be amazed!


Do you know: Applying tea tree oil, coconut oil, or cornstarch mixed with baking soda on the high perspiring areas may help reduce sweating. You can soak your sweaty palms in a glass/bowl of tea too!

Hi, I would like to know if the botox treatment can be done on the same day as the first consultation and how long does it take? Will there be compensatory sweating?

Yes, it can be done on the same day. It takes about 15-30 minutes. Compensatory sweating is very unlikely because the procedure does not remove sweating completely. Please call 66942348 or email us at [email protected] if you wish to come in.
