The answer: deodorant. But there’s a problem: not all deodorants reduce sweating the same way, and some even make it worse. The reason? They contain aluminum salts, which cause inflammation in your underarms — and that can exacerbate other health issues like eczema (and possibly even breast cancer). (For more on this topic, see “How to Stop Sweating.”)
So if you’re using one of these products — or any antiperspirant with aluminum — stop! You should also check out our list of natural deodorants for an alternative to commercial ones. And if you have a question about how to stop sweating around the armpits, ask us in the comments below or shoot us a message via Facebook. We’ll try our best to help!
