Best Products to Stop Excessive Sweating

1 CommentFriday, 14 June 2019  |  Paul

It’s normal to sweat when the weather’s hot or when you exercise, but what about when it’s extreme and affects your day-to-day life? The fancy name for excessive sweating is hyperhidrosis, and it affects approximately 3% of the population. This might not sound like a lot, but that’s over 2 million people. Hyperhidrosis usually affects the armpits, hands and feet, but can be localised or affect the whole body, including the back, neck and face.

So, where should you start when tackling excessive sweating?

Self Help

Many people find that the following actions help to reduce their sweating:

  • Wearing loose fitting clothing: Wearing loose fitting clothes made from breathable fabrics, such as cotton, have been found to reduce the amount of sweat produced. Tighter fitting material such as nylon can make sweating worse, so try to avoid wearing this
  • Drink lots of water: Staying hydrated and drinking water can help reduce the amount of sweat we produce as it keeps our body cool
  • Change your socks regularly: If the area of your body that sweats excessively is your feet, it can be helpful to change your socks regularly to avoid your feet being damp and uncomfortable

What Else Can Help?

As well as taking the above steps to keep our body cool and dry, it has been found that our diet has an impact on how little or how much we sweat.

Some food and drink induces sweating:

  • Spicy food
  • Caffeine
  • Alcohol
  • Carbohydrates

While some can reduce it:

  • Fruit and vegetables
  • Almonds
  • Calcium-rich foods
  • Olive oil
  • Oats

If you’ve tried tips such as altering your diet and wearing loose fitting clothing to no avail, worry not! There are further steps you can take…

Treatments for Hyperhidrosis

Sometimes, after trying every environmental change under the sun, the time comes to try over-the-counter remedies. Read on for more information…

Antiperspirants

Using a strong antiperspirant spray or roll-on can work wonders compared to the usual deodorant sprays used in everyday life. Unlike deodorant, antiperspirants not only kill odour-causing bacteria, but also block sweat glands, making them a useful tool for treating hyperhidrosis. 

Perspi Guard Maximum Strength Antiperspirant Roll-On 

Perspi Guard Maximum Strength Antiperspirant Roll-On (30ml)

To protect against hyperhidrosis and get you back to feeling your old self, the Perspi Guard Maximum Strength Antiperspirant Roll-On is the ideal guard against excessive sweating. Gentle yet effective, the antiperspirant’s aloe vera formula keeps armpits, hands and feet cool all year round.


SweatBlock Antiperspirant Pads

SweatBlock Antiperspirant Pads

Powerful antiperspirant pads that only need to be used once per week, the SweatBlock Antiperspirant Pads are formulated from decades of research to provide unbeatable protection against embarrassing sweat marks and smells.


Foot Creams and Insoles

Foot sweating can be uncomfortable and even painful as it can result in blisters from rubbing on shoes.

GEHWOL Fusskraft Green Cream for Sweaty Feet

GEHWOL Fusskraft Green Cream for Sweaty Feet

If your sweating is localised to your feet, GEHWOL Fusskraft Green Cream for Sweaty Feet holds the answer! The specialist formula eases odour and cools the skin to provide long-lasting protection against sweat and discomfort.


Dasco Ladies' Super Latex Insoles

Dasco Ladies' Super Latex Insoles
