All Things Summer
Don't SWEAT It!
As the summer heats up and the weather gets warmer, we spend more time in the sun, which can cause sweating. There are ways that you can reduce and control sweating. Here are a few ways you can stop the extra sweat:
Facial Scrubs: Facial scrubs can be used on your back or on your face or on any area of your skin where you sweat.
Use An Antiperspirant: Most people don’t realize that all deodorants are not antiperspirants. Deodorant is made to mask the odor caused from sweating while antiperspirant actually controls and reduces the amount of sweat.
Shave Your Underarms: Everyone with underarm hair doesn’t experience excess sweating, but for people who do sweat easily, underarm hair can make the situation worse.
Watch What You Eat (And Drink): Certain foods, such as caffeine can worsen sweating and should be avoided. Spicy foods can also lead to excess sweating and should be reduced or avoided.
Practice Good Hygiene: Make sure to take daily baths or showers and to wash your underarms. If you shave, avoid putting on deodorant (or antiperspirant) immediately.
