For some people, over-the-counter deodorant and antiperspirant can’t stem the tide of excessive sweating. This potentially embarrassing problem may cause self-consciousness in both professional and social settings. Fortunately, home remedies can be an effective solution for people who sweat too much.
It might taste pungent, but taking vinegar three times a day about a half hour before a meal can potentially curb excessive sweating. Two teaspoons of natural vinegar combined with one teaspoon of apple cider vinegar is an effective dosage for many with perspiration problems.
2. Baking Soda
This common kitchen staple can help with sweating in a few different ways. For example, a teaspoon of baking soda mixed with a cup of water and consumed each night often results in less sweat. It can also be dusted in the areas you sweat the most to reduce moisture and odor.
The citric acid in lemon juice is a natural deodorant. For best results, a lemon should be sliced in half before bed, and the juice applied to the armpits overnight to limit sweat the next day.
4. Herbal Teas
Certain herbs are known to reduce sweat gland activity. Those who want to try this remedy can either brew tea containing sage or opt for a chamomile, black, or green tea if sage is not readily available.
5. Coconut Oil
This natural remedy is incredibly popular for skin and hair care and can also be used to reduce excessive sweating and odor. The oil is simply applied to any areas of the body that tend to sweat, including the armpits and feet.
6. Tomato Juice
The astringent properties of tomato juice help shrink the skin’s pores. Those who drink a glass of fresh tomato juice twice a day should notice a difference in two to three weeks.
