How To Stop Armpit Sweat
Unfortunately, it’s only after an embarrassing episode that you try to look for ways on how to stop armpit sweat. Sweating is your body’s natural cooling method, but like everything in life, each person sweats a little differently. While some people only experience armpit sweat during strenuous physical activity, even the slightest rise in humidity or temperature can cause other armpits to flow like a river. For these people, normal antiperspirants just don’t pack enough of a punch to stop armpit sweat. Luckily, there are several methods that can decrease the amount of armpit sweat or stop armpit sweat altogether.
Things you will need:
- Razor or trimmer
- Malt vinegar
- Baking soda
- Shave your armpits. The first step you can do is also the easiest step. Removing the hair make your armpits slightly cooler. Armpit hair actually collects your sweat, creating a more powerful smell than if the sweat wasn't collected.
- Apply malt vinegar to your armpits at night. Let your armpits air dry before you go to bed. Don't wash it off until the morning. The vinegar will get absorbed by your skin and help block armpit sweat for the next day.
- Mix some baking soda with water and apply the paste to your armpits. Let the paste sit on your pits for about half an hour, then wash it off. The chemicals in the baking soda will react with your sweat and make it evaporate much more quickly.
- Consult a dermatologist or your doctor. These medical professionals will have the knowledge to investigate the cause of your excessive armpit sweat and they have access to several additional treatments that aren't available over the counter.
- Get Botox. Botulism is a terrible illness, but when taken in tiny doses, it can paralyze the skin cells around your armpit so they won't be able to sweat. This is no small step. You should consult your doctor and try other methods before going down this road.
