5. Oak bark
Oak bark is sold in pharmacies and is considered an effective remedy for excessive sweating. You can rinse your armpits with an oak bark decoction after your shower. Alternatively, you can freeze it into ice cubes, and rub your skin with them in the morning.
- 5 spoons of ground bark
- 1 liter (1 qt) water
Add the bark to the water, and let it simmer for 30 minutes. Infuse for 2 hours, then strain.
The mineral deodorant crystal is a natural analog of conventional antiperspirants. It has no smell, doesn’t leave traces on clothing, and consists of alum (alunite crystals). This mineral has antiseptic, antibacterial, and tonic properties. It also shrinks sweat glands, and the smell disappears. To use the crystal, you need to moisten it with water and rub your armpits. It doesn’t clog the pores and lasts for 1 to 2 years.
3. Aluminum chloride
If the sweating is too profuse, look for antiperspirants with a high content of aluminum chloride — for example, Dry Dry, Odaban, or Maxim. They significantly reduce sweating even in hot weather.
Many have heard that aluminum compounds may provoke breast cancer, but research doesn’t prove the link.
