It’s summertime and wearing those new stylish summer fashions can be so much fun, and the physical activity that you get can really boost your natural metabolism and you may shed a few pounds too.
However, when the heat and humidity rise too much, that can lead to the problem of excessive perspiration. Some individuals are naturally prone to perspire sooner and to a greater degree than others.
If excessive perspiration is a problem for you, there are some tips to keep this matter under control. First of all, if an over the counter natural antiperspirant is ineffective for you, see a dermatologist. I personally love the natural aluminum free deodorant that my boyfriend and I have begun using.
It has no aluminum in it or any other harmful chemicals, which is important because your lymphatic system has quite a few lymph nodes in your underarm area and putting a metallic substance there or other chemicals is not such a good idea.
Also, aluminum and other chemicals in deodorant have been linked to breast cancer as well as alzheimers, so if you can get away with using a natural deodorant, you really could be making an excellent choice when it comes to your health and longevity.
There are prescription antiperspirants that they can prescribe for you. Another alternative for excessive perspiration is Botox injections for the underarm area. If facial perspiration is excessive for you in hot weather, try applying a natural antiperspirant just along the hairline.
I like the spray mineral salt deodorant because it leaves no trace and is easily absorbed into the skin. Test this out on a small inconspicuous area first to ensure it doesn’t irritate the facial area. Make sure you take in a high fluid volume. Lots of water helps to keep your fluid balance in check.
Choose all of your summer apparel, including your shoes, of a light, breathable nature. For clothing, choose light colors and a looser fit. Some companies, such as Adidas, Nike or Timberland, have high-tech fabrics that contain copper and silver to keep you cooler. For shoe selections, choose sandals, or if you have to wear regular shoes, use absorbent foot powders or sweat absorbing inserts.
Keep your skin protected from sun damage since sunburned skin can not dissipate heat as well. Wear a wide brimmed hat and use a waterproof sunscreen gel that won’t wear off from perspiration. Try to adhere to these solutions for perspiration problems so you can look and feel your best for the hot months of summer.
