Summer is for pool parties, cool drinks, breezy dresses, and well–heavy sweating. While makeup fixers, refreshing facial mists, and mini fans can take care of all the sweating on your pretty face, it’s rather challenging to keep underarm sweat in check. The result? Malodorous armpits, sweat stains under the sleeve of your fave tops, and dresses, and a host of embarrassing situations! Not anymore though, because we’re here with five effective and side-effect-free ways to stop underarm sweating and summer-proof your fave tops. Take a look:
Maintain Proper Hygiene
You can stop underarm sweat to a great extent simply by washing the area twice a day with soap and water. You can also use a loofah to scrub it gently and remove odour-causing germs.
All the dirt and sweat buildup in your armpits can clog your pores and increase sweating and odour in this sensitive area. However, exfoliating the skin with a gentle scrub or mild salicylic acid-containing foam wash can help your armpit skin breathe and reduce sweating and odour.
Exfoliating your armpits can render them dry. In response, your skin may produce more oil to restore its moisture. This can make your armpits sweat more and make your life difficult. So always use an oil-free moisturiser to rehydrate your skin after washing or exfoliating your underarms and reduce sweating.
Drinking eight-ten glasses of water in a day can help regulate body temperature and drastically reduce sweating. So make sure you’re hydrated by downing enough fluids throughout the day.
Make Smart Food Choices
You are what you eat and so are your armpits. Excessively spicy and salty foods, caffeine, and processed foods can aggravate sweating. So stick to home-cooked meals, fresh fruits, and green veggies especially when the temperature is soaring. Additionally, ditch caffeinated beverages and aerated drinks for drinks such as cucumber-mint juice, coconut water, and sattu to stay cool.
Use A Topical Antiperspirant
Apply a chemical-free topical antiperspirant on your armpits before stepping out to control sweat and odour. But make sure to wash and moisturise your underarms once you’re home to help your skin breathe.
An outdoor day in the scorching heat calls for loose-fitted tops and breezy dresses. So ditch those skimpy, synthetic/lycra numbers for breathable cotton everything to stay comfy and reduce sweat and odour.
Keep Your Armpits Hair-Free
Armpit hair removal is a personal choice. However, keeping them hairy can increase sweat, germs, and odour. So from a hygiene point of view, it is important to trim, wax or shave your armpit hair, especially in the summer.
