How to Prevent Sweaty Armpits

Sweaty armpits are not attractive. At all. It is one of these really annoying body processes that some people are just cursed with having “a little more of”, like hair (not on your head: that one is desirable for everyone!), or skin pigmentation, or additional weight that just won’t disappear. Everyone sweats, at least a little, but unfortunately, contemporary culture has made us think that it is something that you should be ashamed of and try to hide. When it comes to an unpleasant odor, of course, we strongly support the idea that it is not acceptable to leave it natural, especially if you are one of the lucky people who have a specific…aroma.

The bad news is that you will sweat a lot if your organism was created that way. You just need to deal with it. Try to wear clothes with fabrics or colors that will show as much. The good news is that there are little tricks that you can at least try in order to prevent these sweaty armpits, or at least decrease the process.

  • Drink water. Yes, this is a habit that can have a great impact on everything that goes on in your body, especially sweating. When you sweat, your body gets dehydrated. Drink water, herbal teas, or vegetable juices: they all work! Remember that alcohol and coffee dehydrate your organism.
  • Not that we are surprising you, but showering often is absolutely compulsory. Sweat is not the real problem: the smell is more socially unacceptable, and we believe it is like that for a reason. Showering at least once a day can lower the temperature of your body and reduce the production of sweat. It also controls the amount of bacteria under your armpits.
  • Wearing light fabrics which allow your body to breathe is a good idea, especially in the summer. Cotton and linen are great for the hottest time of year! On the other hand, polyester and nylon can restrict airflow and increase sweating.
  • Removing armpit hair actually also influences the sweat issue. It makes antiperspirant (which we also advise you to use!) more effective, makes the cleaning process easier and decreases odor.
  • As with every single thing going on in your body, your diet has its special role. Spicy foods, garlic and onions can contribute in a bad way to your body smell and the amount of produced sweat, so it is better to avoid them.

Overall, it is better to face your problem, if it bothers you truly and makes you less confident. However, you should not focus on your sweaty armpits: most people will understand and just ignore it!
