You see the cute boy or girl you like. You’re about to give a speech in front of a large audience of people. You get nervous or excited about something and then…you just start sweating. Ughhh it’s so frustrating! It happens at the worst times and you just want to be cool, calm, and collected so what do you do?

Well more than likely if you get hot and sweaty during moments of feeling nervous or excited then it’s definitely something that will eventually fade in time! During the teenage years, our hormones and bodies are kind of out of whack and that can add to those sweaty moments.

Here are a few things to try:

1. If you find that you sweat mainly under your armpits during the day, try a deodorant and antiperspirant with a higher amount of aluminum chloride. Many antiperspirants are in the 15% range of this ingredient but most companies have started selling them at a 19% level as well. The deodorant will stop any odor from being emitted and the antiperspirant will slow down the process of sweating by blocking the sweating glands under the arms. This higher percentage of aluminum chloride is extremely beneficial during the hot summer months that are just around the corner!

2. Drink plenty of cool water during the day to cool off your body from the inside out. It’s important to drink between 8-10 glasses daily and not only will it cool your body off, it will also keep your skin hydrated and looking fresh and glowing.

3. Avoid hot and spicy foods, especially if you know you’re about to give a big speech or run into that “crush” you have. Spicy foods will make you excessively hot, causing you to sweat and feel uncomfortable. These foods can also irritate your skin and cause red blotches to form if you are susceptible to them.

4. “If you think cool, you’ll be cool.” This expression is so true, especially in the literal sense. A lot of times, you will get nervous, hot, and sweaty because you’re already THINKING about getting hot and sweaty. So if you repeat to yourself over and over that you are not nervous and that you won’t get hot or sweaty, you will eventually train your brain to believe your body is cool and you won’t be dripping from your face, armpits, or back!

5. Before a nerve-wracking situation, take a paper towel or washcloth, run it under cold water and lightly tap your face with it. You will feel cooler instantly.

6. Take deep, slow, calming breaths.

If you seem to sweat in excess and even at night while you sleep, your body may be telling you something and we at Acne Skin Site would recommend consulting a doctor. But more than likely, if you sweat during nervous situations, these tips above will help you and it truly is a mind over matter situation. Remember, “If you think cool, you’ll be cool.”


Let the discussion begin!

    Are You crazy??? Aluminium is extremely toxic and gives Alzheimer. A lot of studies talks about it

    Thanks for the advice! I’ll definitely try a couple of these but I no longer use anti-perspirant with aluminium. I’ve found that it stains my underarms so that they are darker than my actual skin! 🙁

    i have 2 boys ages 3 n 6. since they were born they sweat excessively throughout the year. I even told doctors and was told it’s normal it has to be some hormonal problem. My ex husband use to drink alcohol and smoke marujauna i didn’t find this out until after my pregnancy i just heard it through my in law. I could never tell b/c when he was around me i couldn’t sense a smell nothing I would never tell because he would look clean as if he didn’t deal w. those type of things…and I was pregnant w. both boys …when i asked him about this he denied it. so could it be the reason why the sweat so much???? I have to change them through out the day it’s so annoying.
