Exercising increases the level of the body’s internal heating system. When you work your arms and legs, the body’s temperature rises, and sweating is the body’s way of getting rid of the extra heat.
In order to curb the sweat, you can try exercising indoors in a relatively cool place. In case you can’t practice indoors, exercise in the morning or evenings. Remember to drink plenty of water as you lose body fluids through sweat.
4. Eating Hot and Spicy FoodSpicy food and heat trigger same response from the skin, which is why you perspire on your forehead and upper lips when you consume an extra hot curry. Even your cup of morning coffee can cause sweating, as caffeine stimulates the sweat glands. In such cases the simplest thing you can do is to cut down on spicy food.
5. SicknessFever is our body’s way of fighting off an infection. Since our body’s temperature is a few degrees higher than normal, we sweat to cool it off. But it is not necessary to be feverish to sweat. Diabetes and cancer can also cause sweating. You can take the right medication in order to prevent perspiration due to illness.
6. Pregnancy and MenopauseDuring pregnancy, the change in the hormone levels increases blood flow, which slightly raises the body's temperature, leading to sweating. During menopause, the drop in oestrogen affects your body's internal temperature gauge. Wear light breathable clothes. Drink plenty of water and stay cool with a refreshing bath or a shower.
