What to do About Excessive Underarm Sweating

If you believe you can naturally heal the body and mind here’s a guide to prevent excessive underarm sweating using home remedies:

  • Vinegar:

This versatile ingredient used in cooking also helps in fighting against excessive underarm sweating. It can be used internally and externally. Consuming vinegar based drink continuously for a week is known to significantly reduce sweating. Alternatively you could combine 2 tsp of honey with 2 tsp. of vinegar and just gulp it down. Vinegar can be used as a topical application on the armpits by rubbing apple vinegar which helps to saturate the sweat pores thereby curbing the sweat.

  • Herbal tea:

Herbal teas have known to provide a myriad of health benefits since centuries. The sage tea which is rich in Vitamin B and magnesium help to sooth the sweat glands and thereby minimize sweat production. So simply boil some sage tea leaves in sufficient water and gulp it down and stay fresh and healthy.

  • Juices:

Fruit juices are known for their nutrients and now let me tell you can get rid of that excessive sweating by relishing tomato or grape juice daily. They help to stabilize the body temperature keeping it cool thereby minimizing sweat production.  If you hate tomatoes then surely you would never have the courage to sip tomato juice you can instead make a topical application on the under arms by applying tomato pulp. Leave it for some time and wash it off.

  • Potatoes:

Now potatoes have found themselves another use – to curb underarm sweating. Though how they work remains a mystery they surely help to cut down underarm sweating when peeled and rubbed on the desired area.

  • Cornstarch and Baking Soda:

Now jars of cornstarch and baking soda can move from your kitchen shelf and find themselves a place in your dressing room as they are instrumental in fighting against sweaty underarms.

Simply make a paste by combining equal portions of cornstarch and baking soda with a few drops of body oil and store them in an air tight jar. After your shower just gently apply this mixture on your armpits and let your armpits stay fresh the whole day long.

  • Adjust Your Diet:

If you agree with the saying what you eat is what you are then blame your diet for those soppy armpits. Caffeine, onions, garlic, alcohol, spicy foods, etc stimulate the sweat glands in the armpits to sweat more. So switch to whole grain foods and cut down on your caffeine and alcohol intake.

  • Another easy remedy for driving out excessive underarm sweating is to make an application using walnut leaves and eucalyptus oil and apply it gently on the underarms before bed. Wash it off in the morning and you’ll save yourself from embarrassing foul odor for the day.
  • Besides, the above mentioned tips remember to lose weight if you’re a little round, as excess fat makes the body work harder to carry the weight and thereby sweats. The sweat in turn fuels bacterial growth and bad body odor.
