It has been said that ladies do not sweat they merely glisten, but whomever made that statement never endured the high humidity temperatures of the Deep South. When August rolls around everyone sweats if they venture out of doors.
Summer sweat is not attractive like workout routines sweat, does not smell pleasant, and leaves you feeling sticky all over. There are a few things that you can do to reduce the amount of perspiration you have.
1. Dress for the WeatherWearing the appropriate clothing can reduce the amount of summer sweat you have to deal with. In the summer months you should wear clothing that fits loosely. Looser clothing will allow air to get between the cloth and your skin and that will allow the moisture to evaporate.
Wear light colored clothing that is made from cotton and natural fibers. Cotton allows the air to enter through the cloth and cool you naturally. The darker colors absorb the heat and make you feel hotter, while lighter colors reflect the heat and cool you down.
2. Stop Wearing DeodorantDeodorant disguises foul odors like a perfume does. You do not want to wear deodorant in the summer time. Deodorant is fine for the winter months, but when the temperatures start to climb above seventy degrees you need to switch to an antiperspirant.
Antiperspirants help to stop you from perspiring as much. They also help to block odors, so you get the odor reduction that your deodorant would provide with a perspiration reducer.
Some people simply cannot find an antiperspirant that works well for them. If you have tried the majority of antiperspirant brands and still have trouble with summer sweat then you might want to see your doctor for a prescription antiperspirant.
3. BotoxIf you have a major perspiration issue, and nothing seems to help it, then you might want to look into Botox. Botox injections have been known to stop people from sweating profusely.
Your nerves send chemical signals to your brain that tells it you are overheating and need to perspire. Botox blocks these signals so the message is not received and the sweat does not start to seep from your pores.
Botox works well for people who sweat profusely under their arms, and always have yellow stains on their clothing. The injections also help to reduce the sweat that occurs in the pals of your hands and the soles of your feet.
You can expect one Botox treatment to provide you some relief from profuse sweating for up to six months.
