I’m working on it. I’ll get to that in a second, but first let’s explore some other ways we sweat and why we sweat the way we do.
We all know about hot flushes and night sweats — products of hormonal changes — but there are others as well. For instance, one thing you may not have thought much about is how our skin retains heat during the day when its temperature doesn’t rise above body temperature (98.6°F). You see, blood flow from your skin to your brain stops when you’re resting or asleep; this gives off heat due to friction between blood flowing back through your veins and air flowing past muscles and organs in your chest cavity, abdomen region and extremities (e.g., fingers & toes) where they sit close to surface-level blood vessels called capillaries . This heat retention tends to raise the temperature of these areas by enough so that they “feel” warmer than what would normally occur if all were at body temperature. And since our bodies want their internal temperatures within certain bounds for normal function  , sweating has been a natural defense against overheating  . The same mechanism applies during daily activities such as being active outdoors in warm weather: thermogenesis means generating energy by burning calories which results in a loss of weight via dehydration  . However, too much sweating can lead us into another problem known as hyperhidrosis also known as excessive perspiration or excessive sweating : an uncontroll
