14 Ways to Stop Excessive Sweating

If you feel that you are sweating too much, and it's making you uncomfortable, there are many natural ways to decrease your sweating.

This is not the time to worry about excessive sweating, as a bride or groom you will be attending parties, dinners -and the biggest event of all- your wedding!

This condition is referred to as Hyperhidrosis. It mainly targets the palms or soles of the feet. It occurs when the Sympathetic Nervous System gets overactive and creates more sweat than needed.

Here is what you need to know:

#1 Drink Lots of Water
Hydration keeps body temperatures low and therefore less sweat will be produced.

#2 Avoid Stress and Nervousness
Stress and nervousness will trigger sweat glands, so try to keep your cool.

#3 Cut Down on Your Caffeine Intake
Caffeine causes anxiety, which can trigger your sweat glands as well. So drink less coffee, tea and carbonated beverages.

#4 Acupuncture
It targets certain body parts to balance energy and also relax the brain by controlling the hypothalamus, which goes down to reduce sweat. Consider it.

#5 Yoga
Yoga relaxes and calms you, which leads to lessening sweat production. Check out your nearest fitness centers that provide yoga classes.

#6 Use Deodorants and Soaps That Suit Your Body
The effects of deodorants or soaps not compatible with your body will do you more harm than good. They may cause more bacteria to build up on the skin.

#7 Drink Tomato Juice
The extra vitamins and nutrients help with decreasing sweat production. Add a glass of tomato juice a day to your diet.

Cold showers will help regulate your body temperature and decrease sweating.

#13 Soak Sweaty Hands and Feet in Tea
Boil a couple of tea bags and soak your hands and feet in them.
