Is Singapore’s heat making you feel extra sweaty and sticky? Try these easy at-home methods to reduce wet palms and feet.
Sweaty palms and feet are caused by overactive eccrine glands – these are sweat glands that are mostly found in your palms and soles. For most people, these glands are only activated when they move around, feel stressed and anxious or are in a warm place. But for others, these sweat glands simply don’t shut off – and doctors don’t know why. Some cases of excessive sweating come from medical reasons like diabetes, pregnancy, obesity or certain drugs.
There are many ways to stop sweatiness. In the most serious cases, surgery is an option but most of us don’t have to go that far. If the persistent wetness is giving you embarrassing date nights and business meetings, try these tried-and-tested ways to help you feel drier and fresher.
