Do you sweat excessively in hot weather?  Learn how to stay fresh

It is natural that in hot weather we sweat much more than usual. Although it can be embarrassing in some situations, according to doctors, sweating is a natural way to lower body temperature. Find out what to do to feel fresh on summer days.

Doctors warn not to block sweat secretion with chemicals or deodorants. We need sweat to naturally cool the body and maintain the correct temperature. There are about 3-4 million sweat glands on the surface of the human skin. Every day they secrete about 500-800 ml of sweat. Sweat appears most often in selected areas of the body, covers the hands, feet, armpits and face (mainly around the forehead and upper lip). Sweating is not only designed to cool the body, but it is important in the process of detoxification of the body, i.e. cleansing the body of toxins. It also helps to maintain the balance of the body. Stimulates the circulatory and lymphatic systems.

Eating certain foods can also cause increased sweating

The amount of sweat secreted is influenced not only by high temperature, but also by diet. We sweat primarily after eating hot foods, as well as warm drinks that raise the body temperature. So cooling down is a natural defensive reaction. So if you do not want to sweat, limit not only the consumption of hot food in hot weather, but also: spicy dishes containing hot spices such as: pepper, paprika, ginger, turmeric, mustard seeds and drinking coffee, strong tea and alcohol. The menu for hot days should include fruits and vegetables as well as other products rich in fiber. It is good these days to drink natural infusions, e.g. from mint, sage, lemon balm or nettle. It is also recommended to drink about 3 liters of water a day. It can be water with lemon or a small amount of salt.

What to do to feel fresh in the heat?

  1. Wear clothes made of natural fabrics in hot weather so that the skin can breathe.

  2. Wear shoes with open toes and heels so that your feet have adequate ventilation.

  3. Refresh your body by taking a cool shower, and if you can’t, wipe it with wet wipes.
