If you’re concerned about your health, you probably already know that most antiperspirants contain toxins. This truth could shy you away from choosing harsh over-the-counter solutions in search of a way to stop sweating naturally.
Despite your desire to be healthy, you also don’t want to scare people away with jarring sweat marks. So what’s a sweaty health nut to do?
Fortunately, we’ve compiled some natural ways to stop sweating so you don’t have to compromise your health in the name of dry pits. In this guide, we’ll share 5 tried-and-tested natural remedies for underarm sweating.
Vinegar more specifically, apple cider vinegar provides an impressive list of health benefits. It helps regulate blood sugar, flush out toxins, relieve heartburn and acid reflux and even aids in weight loss.
When applied directly to the skin, vinegar also acts as an astringent to help remove bacteria and close up pores. If you sweat profusely, drinking a vinegar concoction or applying it directly to the sweaty area each night can help reduce sweat.
Drink a mixture of 2 teaspoons of vinegar and one teaspoon of apple cider vinegar before breakfast, lunch and dinner. The drying effects should kick in within a few days or so.
* Tomato Juice
Beyond the cancer-fighting benefits, tomato juice also shrinks your pores and can reduce chronic sweat. Eating a tomato-rich diet or simply drinking a glass of tomato juice each day will help you control excessive sweating. If tomatoes aren’t your thing, try applying tomato juice to your underarms (or wherever you sweat most) and let it sit for at least 10 minutes before rinsing off.
* Green and Black Tea
Drinking hot beverages like tea might seem counterintuitive to stopping sweat. But green tea contains magnesium and Vitamin B, which constrict your sweat glands and keep you calm.
If you sweat too much, try swapping out your morning coffee for green tea to get in on these sweat-blocking benefits.
* Cornstarch and Baking Soda
Cornstarch and baking soda are naturally water-absorbing agents. Because baking soda is alkaline, it counteracts the bacteria-loving acids in sweat and acts as a natural deodorant. Many store-bought deodorants even contain baking soda for this very reason.
Make sure your underarms are dry, and apply a hefty mixture of the two directly to the sweaty area each night. Let it sit for 30 minutes before rinsing off with water. As a forewarning, leaving on the concoction too long could create uncomfortable side effects. When I tried this about a year ago, I left baking soda on for the entire day, which irritated my skin and turned my armpits beet red. The baking soda also left a burning sensation, so I did not attempt this hack again.
* Wheatgrass Juice
A natural detoxifier, wheatgrass juice is also rich in vitamin A, C, B12, B6 and folic acid. By neutralizing and diluting the toxins in the blood, drinking just a tablespoon of wheatgrass a day helps fight sweat. If your sweat is especially pungent, you’re in luck! Wheatgrass juice also reduces odor from sweat.
