Sweating at the gym is very much accepted but sweating on a date or in the office can be very embarrassing.

Growing pit stains during a romantic dinner or sopping palms when shaking hands can be humiliating.

Try these five tips to get control of your sweating so you can stay dry for your next big date or presentation.

  • Avoid spicy foods

Avoid spicy foods and caffeine, they could also stimulate your sweat glands in a not-so-comfortable way. Caffeine is a strong stimulant which causes the release of adrenaline and that will make you sweat. Try cutting down on how many cups of coffee you drink in a day and that should help reduce the sweating.
