Deodorants work to mask body odor, but they don’t relieve excessive sweating. Non-prescription, “clinical-strength” antiperspirants that contain active ingredients, such as aluminum chloride, are available over-the-counter and can temporarily block sweat pores to reduce sweating. For the best results, apply antiperspirant to dry skin before going to bed.

Eating and drinking triggers when it comes to sweat

Certain foods and drinks can trigger sweat. Try eliminating these 3 things from your diet so you don’t increase the amount you sweat throughout the day.

Skip the coffee and tea

Caffeine is a sweat trigger. It can excite the central nervous system, which then activates sweat glands.

Avoid spicy food

Hot sauces, peppers, and spices can add flavor, but they can also increase the amount of sweat you produce.

Consider cutting back on alcohol

While reducing alcohol consumption is good for your overall health, it may also decrease the potential for excessive sweating.
