7. Black Tea
The ordinary black tea that you often drink in the morning is also an effective remedy for hyperhidrosis.
Black tea is rich in tannins that have astringent qualities. This means it can effectively block the pores and prevent excess sweat from seeping out.
Additionally, tannins help keep the body temperature cool, thus reducing the chance of excessive sweating.
- Hold moist tea bags in your palms for 5 minutes. Do this 2 or 3 times a day.
- Alternatively, make a large bowl of weak black tea using used tea bags. Allow it to cool, then soak your hands or feet for 30 minutes, twice daily.
- Also, do not forget to drink 2 to 3 cups of black tea every day.
8. Tea Tree Oil
Tea tree oil is another effective remedy for hyperhidrosis. It aids in controlling excessive sweating due to its natural astringent property.
Plus, its antifungal properties can reduce the risk of fungal infections caused by too much moisture.
- Add 4 or 5 drops of tea tree oil to a bowl of lukewarm water.
- Dip a cotton ball in this solution and rub it onto the affected areas of your body.
- Repeat 2 or 3 times a day.
Note: Before applying tea tree oil on your skin, always do a spot test on a small patch of skin. This is important as some people may be sensitive to this essential oil.
