Many a summer can be sweaty. Of course, it is quite normal for the heat to make us sweat on our upper lips and armpits - but it is still extremely uncomfortable. Especially when sweat stains are noticeable on clothing. We'll tell you which 3 home remedies naturally help against sweating.
Sometimes deodorant doesn't help either: the sweat stains under the arms inevitably spread on hot days, an unpleasant smell of sweat pours out of our shoes. What can you do against sweaty feet, sweat stains, and unpleasant smells? Fortunately, you can remedy this - even with simple home remedies.
Certain herbal teas naturally help with their active ingredients against perspiration and unpleasant odors. Applied externally, elderberry tea, for example, helps. Boil this and apply it to the affected areas with a cotton pad. Repeat this several times a day.
In addition, drink one to two cups of sage tea daily. The herbal tea has an antiperspirant effect, which influences our hormones from the inside and thus naturally regulates the flow of sweat.
Cornmeal or starch also helps against sweat stains and bad smells when applied externally, as the powder keeps our skin dry. Mix 10 g cornmeal and 5 g baking soda into an anti-sweat powder. Use it to powder your armpits and feet (especially between the toes). The natural deodorant soaks up sweat easily throughout the day and leaves no traces on clothing.
Apple cider vinegar is the insider tip among natural antiperspirants. Together with certain herbs, the home remedy helps to get sweat and odor under control. To do this, boil 10 g rosemary with 10 g thyme in 250 ml water for about 10 minutes. Filter the brew and mix everything with 125 ml of apple cider vinegar. You can now apply the tincture externally to the affected areas with a cotton pad.
