Unpleasant smell of sweat, irritation of the armpit area, wet spots on clothes, feeling of awkwardness and self-doubt are the consequences of excessive sweating. You can solve this delicate problem at home, subject to simple rules.
Excessive sweating, or hyperhidrosis, usually appears during adolescence and gradually goes away. However, about 3% of the world's population suffers from this disease throughout their lives.

It should be remembered that sweating is a necessary function of our body, indicating normal thermoregulation and metabolism. It is sweating that helps rid the body of harmful substances, water and salts. It is impossible to get rid of perspiration, because in this case, the human body will overheat and the body will die.
The reasons for increased sweating can be hormonal changes in the body (during pregnancy, adolescence, menopause, etc.), stressful situations, medication, excessive physical activity and poor nutrition.
Here are some simple tips to help you get rid of underarm sweating.
Compliance with daily hygiene measures
Take a shower 2-3 times a day. A contrast shower helps to strengthen blood vessels and cope with sweating. If you take a shower more than 2 times a day, then you can not use the shower gel, but just stand under the stream of refreshing water. Be sure to wipe your skin dry after taking a bath.
Using antiperspirant deodorants
After showering or bathing, be sure to use antiperspirant deodorants, which will clog your sweat glands and reduce the amount of sweat you produce.
