Do your hands perspire a lot while you shake hands with someone, type something, or do some other thing using your hands? If yes, then you suffer from the problem of palmar hyperhidrosis. It is a very uncomfortable situation that makes you undergo irritation as you feel disgusting in even shaking hands and finding problems in doing your work, as well.
There are two ways to cure the problem- one is to go for the surgery and Botox injections that will do the needful, but are very expensive and time consuming as you need to have spare time to devote. The other method is to go with the tried and tested home remedies, to cure the problem of Palmar Hyperhidrosis. Here are a few home remedies that will work wonders on your sweaty palms and hands.
I have discussed the endless benefits of water in my previous articles. Once again, water proves to be beneficial for your skin. Drinking water will reduce perspiration in your body and will help you in getting rid of the problem. It is advisable to drink minimum of 10-12 glasses of water in a day, to keep the problem at bay.
2. Use a Baby Powder
If you sweat mildly, then baby powder will serve your purpose as it absorbs the sweat quite effectively. However, you can also apply normal talcum powder, but please do not use deodorants and other antiperspirants as they tend to clog your pores.
3. Iodine Rich Food
Deficiency of Iodine in the body may cause problems like thyroid, which increases sweating in your body. Consume food that is highly rich in Iodine such as fish, eggs, or even normal salt will also serve the purpose as it is a rich source of Iodine.
Herbs have been proven to be an effective cure for many body disorders since ancient times. Herbs like turmeric and neem not only detoxify blood, but also combat the problem of sweaty palms and hands. Consume turmeric in your diet or drink turmeric mixed milk to get rid of the problem.
5. Sage Tea
Start drinking sage tea every morning. Prepare it by boiling the tea leaves in water, which will release the essential oil of the leaves into water. It has astringent properties that remove excess oil from the body, preventing perspiration. Do not drink this tea in excess as it may cause headache if consumed in larger quantities.
6. Food to Avoid
If you sweat more than a limit, then you should stop consuming some foods like white onion, curry leaves, garlic, broccoli, and you should eat more of green leafy vegetables.
7. Tea Bath
This is another tested method that works well for sweaty hands and palms. Take 5 tea bags and brew them in boiling water. Let it cool for some time. Dip your hands in the cold solution for 20-30 minutes. Continuing the process will cure the problem in few days.
Try these tested and proven home remedies and see how your problem will be vanished in few days.
