The human body has more than 2.5 million sweat glands and this fact is more apparent than ever during the sweltering summers. With temperatures touching 45° C across India, it is impossible not to sizzle or melt no matter how many deodorants you apply or precautions you take.
Sweating is inevitable. But it can be curbed to an extent. Check out these nifty ways to keep your sweat glands under control:
1. Shave If You Can:
If you are a pro-hair kind of person, then skip this tip. But it is a scientifically proven fact that sweat tends to accumulate around the hairiest parts of the body. So, shave off your armpits and chest hair to avoid sweating like a pig! Oh, you will even tackle body odour.

2. Draw The Curtains:
After the chilly winters, we start enjoying the sunlight so much that we forget to draw the curtains when it is most needed. Yes, it might get dark in the room but at least the spaces will be cool and help you not sweat.
3. Avoid Spicy Foods:
Peppers have a major spicy chemical called “capsaicin” that sends signals to your brain that you are overheating. So whenever you consume peppers, the cooling receptors in your body get activated and thus make you sweat.

4. Apply Lemon Juice:
While applying a deodorant is definitely a good option to keep the sweat glands under control, lemon juice is even a better option. Squeeze some juice into a bowl and apply around your armpits before hitting the sack. It will not only help fight sweat but also make you smell nice and fruity.
5. Keep Off Coffee:
You know this yourself. Whenever you have coffee, you feel extra hot because it stimulates the central nervous system and this triggers the sweat glands to get active. If you really want caffeine, then stick to iced tea, cold coffee or decaf versions of coffee.
