Having big sweat patches under your arms is embarrassing, and even worse if you have a strong body odor. Here I will give you home remedies that tackle both sweaty armpits and body odor problems.
While sweating is normal, excessive sweating is a condition known as Hyperhydrosis, and it can be caused or triggered by many things, including diabetes, an irregular metabolism, bad digestion and constipation, emotional stress, puberty, menopause and menstruation, and I do recommend that you consult your doctor to see if he or she can identify the underlying cause.
That being said, if you’ve been to your doctor and still need help, there are a number of effective home remedies for sweaty armpits so don’t despair and read on!
Many people use a strong anti-perspirant (rather than deodorant which really only masks the smell). The higher the aluminum chloride (aka alum) content is, the stronger the anti-perspirant. While this is effective for quite a few people, the downside is that sweating helps your body eliminate toxins, and using an antiperspirant is not great for your overall health. Below you can find some natural cures for sweaty armpits.
Apple cider vinegar is wonderful for you, helping your metabolism, and many other things, and lots of people have found that this home treatment reduces excess sweating and also body odor.
Bragg’s Apple Cider Vinegar is very effective and was the favorite of most people I’ve spoken to, but if you don’t get this, try and ensure your ACV it is organic.
Whilst this natural remedy may reduce the amount you sweat it is an excellent choice for those who want to prevent body odor, but would rather not use an antiperspirant, and many people I have spoken to have found it more effective.
– Simply rub a generous amount all around your armpits, and make sure to let it dry before putting on your clothes. Then your should be odor free! You can find it in a pharmacy or you can even get it in roll on form here.
Take some baking powder and apply it to your armpits after showering. You can even make a cream with some hand lotion or similar and add a drop or two of essential oil to make it smell great! But do make sure the baking powder is aluminum free! If you want a ready made baking powder deodorant try here.
Note of caution: Some people find this remedy gives them sore armpits, so test it out first!
