- Drink lots of water
Drinking water will also keep your body temperature down and help to reduce the sweating. Doctors recommend that everyone should drink eight glasses of water a day but, on very hot days, you will need even more.
- Avoid spicy foods
This is another good tip on how to stop excessive sweating. Very spicy foods will make anyone sweat, even on a cool day, so, if you do sweat a lot you would be better off if you avoid spicy foods altogether.
Capsaicin, which is what gives things like peppers and chilies their heat, sends a signal to the brain, telling it that you are overheating, and that will trigger more sweating.
- Wear breathable fabrics
Fabrics such as acrylic and polyester, trap the heat and the sweat and just make you sweat even more. Always wear clothes made from natural fabrics, like cotton, linen, and silk. Natural fabrics let the air get to your skin, which will cool you down, and they draw the moisture away from your skin so that it can evaporate into the air.

- Drink less alcohol
An ice cold alcoholic drink might cool you down in the short term, but if you drink too much alcohol on a regular basis, it will make you sweat more.
Your body reacts to excessive amounts of alcohol in the same way as it does to salt; it tries to sweat it out of your system. Initially, alcohol will dehydrate you, but come the next morning, you will find that you sweat more as your body tries to cleanse itself.
