Part of the perfect look is undoubtedly our pleasant fragrance. However, as the degrees rise outside, it is increasingly difficult to stay fresh throughout the day. We often focus on makeup and hair, but it has been scientifically proven that apart from our eyes, we also communicate with people with our… noses. The pleasant and light fragrance we emit can be just as attractive as beautiful hair and stylish clothes.
What should we do to stay fresh even in the heat?
In our effort to hide the few kilos, a memory of the winter meals, we often put on more clothes, which can lead to unnecessary sweating. Instead, choose the right clothes for the season, but let them be made of natural, breathable fabrics - cotton, linen, silk
The market is full of fabrics that mimic the natural - always pay special attention to the labels of the clothes you buy. Avoid polyester, nylon, even denim. In addition to overheating, you will also be able to protect yourself from allergies and itching. Artificial fabrics steam the skin, do not allow it to breathe, and this would darken your mood during your summer walk or dinner with friends.
Choose the right fit
"There is no such thing as a bad shape, there is a wrong fit" - let that be your motto. Not all of us are lucky enough to be born with goddess bodies, but there is always a part of the body that we like and can accentuate – be it the hips or the waist. Prefer looser clothes, they will allow air to circulate and cool you; tight clothes will bring you unnecessary discomfort, especially when sitting down and standing up.
Botox for profuse sweating
If you suffer from excessive sweating, you may have hyperhidrosis, a condition characterized by excessive sweating.Sweating is a natural way for the body to cool down - whether during a stressful situation or heat. Hyperhidrosis usually persists under normal conditions - without any real need for it. Botox comes to the rescue - known mainly from beauty procedures for the face, it also works for profuse sweating. By consulting a specialist, you can find out if you need botulinum toxin injection - it will block impulses between neurons and sweat glands. So they will deactivate and stop producing sweat for a certain period of time. You will notice the first results after 4-5 days, and the full effect of the procedure will be available after about a month. The duration of the result is between 5 months and 1 year.
Laser hair removal
Laser hair removal can be beneficial when it comes to profuse sweating. In addition to time, it will also save you effort to keep yourself fresh.
Avoid Certain Foods
If you are at a business lunch or a special event - avoid spicy foods - they will cause you to sweat, which you don't need. Excessive amounts of caffeine would also trigger extra amounts of sweat.
Deodorant or antiperspirant stick?
It is a big mistake if you use deodorant to stop sweating. Deodorant will only cover up and mask the bad smell, and the antiperspirant stick contains aluminum s alts that clog the sweat glands and thus reduce sweat production.
Natural deodorant idea
Mix the following ingredients:
- 1/3 cup coconut oil;
