But if you're one of those individuals who is not a fan of processed chemicals then you must be wondering how to reduce sweating the natural way.
There are actually a couple of things you can do that you can try right at the comfort of your home to prevent excessive sweating and one of which is baking soda.
This is very safe to use on your hands, feet or all over your body.
It does a great job in controlling profuse sweating.
It also works as a deodorant minus irritations or allergies especially if you have sensitive skin.
It works really well in absorbing moisture and in eliminating odor.
You can soak your hands or feet in a basin with equal parts of baking soda for 25 to 30 minutes.
Make sure that the mixture is cloudy.
Do this every night before bedtime and you'll see results instantly.
For all over body sweating, you can soak in a tub with warm water and add 1 cup of baking soda.
Dry off with a clean towel after about 15 to 20 minutes.
You'll instantly notice that you smell a lot better and fresher.
The second method on how to reduce sweating naturally is using Alum Crystals.
It offers a natural antiperspirant and deodorant protection.
A lot of people swear by it and it works for them.
Aside from it's chemical-free, it also effectively eliminates odor-causing bacteria.
There are products available in the market today that make use of alum crystals as the main ingredient.
You can apply it after bathing in the morning.
I tried it before and I would recommend reapplying throughout the day especially if the weather is super hot.
But if you're just at home and it's pretty cold, one application can last the entire day.
Some brands even come in spray so you can apply it to your feet and hands as well.
The last remedy I found on how to reduce sweating is by drinking plenty of water.
This may sound blank to you but trust me it really works.
Forget about what other says that the more you sweat the more you sweat.
It's actually- the less you drink the more you sweat.
If we don't drink enough water, our nerves send signals to our brain that the body needs to cool down in the form of sweat.
It will also help if you can wear clothes made of natural fibers all the time like linen, cotton and wool.
These fibers don't trap body heat and the best part is, you won't smell even if you sweat.
