TOP TIPS FOR DEAL­ING WITH SWEAT­ING

New Zealand Woman’s Weekly - - HEALTH& FAMILY -

• Wash fre­quently. Carry a wash cloth in a seal­able plas­tic bag in case you need to have a quick wash dur­ing the day.

• Switch to an an­tiper­spi­rant with a higher strength level.

• Ap­ply an­tiper­spi­rant at night so the ac­tive in­gre­di­ent has time to go into the sweat pore and block it. If you ap­ply it in the morn­ing and then sweat a lot im­me­di­ately af­ter­wards, it can slide straight off your skin.

• Choose light­weight, breath­able fab­rics such as cot­ton, and avoid ma­te­ri­als like ny­lon and silk, which can make you sweat more.

• Wear loose cloth­ing and make sure you don’t over­dress.

• Avoid hats if pos­si­ble – they can make your body hot­ter. Try to keep your head cool.

• If you have a prob­lem with sweaty feet, change your shoes and socks of­ten and use foot pow­ders.

• Avoid spicy foods. Eat­ing chill­ies, for ex­am­ple, can make you sweat more, and foods like onions and gar­lic can make your sweat smell worse.
