5 Scientifically Tested Methods To Prevent Excessive Sweating

BotoxConsider getting a botulinum toxin injection if wet armpits are a regular concern. This injection is used to treat hyperhidrosis, a clinical case of increased perspiration. The toxin blocks the nerve impulses leading to the sweat glands, therefore the sweat is not secreted. Remember that the effect of the injection lasts for 4 to 12 months.

Potassium alumActually the crystal deodorant is a natural analog of conventional antiperspirants which consists of potassium alum that has antimicrobial properties. To use the crystal, you need to moisten it with water and rub your armpits. It doesn’t clog the pores and lasts for several months.

Hydrogen peroxideAccoording to experts, this product can fights germs and helps to prevent unpleasant odors throughout the day. Simply, add 1 teaspoon of hydrogen peroxide to a cup of water, then apply this mixture to your skin with a washcloth.

Non-soap hand cleanserIf your sweat has already started to smell but there’s no way you can take a shower, carefully clean your armpits with wipes and then apply a non-soap version of a hand cleanser.

LaserIf there's no antiperspirants that can help you, you need to find out the reason for this with your doctor. If your diagnosis is hyperhidrosis, the sweat glands can be treated with a laser, as this reduces their functionality.

An important fact that you need to keep in mind is that, heavy sweating can be a symptom of serious health conditions. You should consult a doctor if you notice that you’re sweating more than usual.
