In these modern times when aestheticism is at the top of all lists, issues like sweating (whether normal or excessive) need to be hidden. Affected individuals might consider it a great humiliation if others were to find out that they suffered from something as uncool as sweating hands.
Picture this scene: a nervous man walks into an important job interview and is about to shake the employer's hand when, only too late, he realizes that his hands are sweating profusely. Events such as these are the ones that can forever make people aware of this potentially embarrassing trait. It can make them go to abnormal lengths in order to secure a sweat free future for their hands. Some people have tried to use antiperspirants on the hands, often unsuccessfully.
Antiperspirants can also leave a sticky residue on the hands, which is almost as undesirable as the sweat they are trying to get rid of. Before trying unfeasible methods such as antiperspirants, the problem of sweating hands must first be tackled by making dietary changes, as eating habits can have a great impact on the way the body sweats.
It may be the case that stronger tactics are required to shake the problem as it may be genetic and therefore completely uncontrollable by diet changes. If this is the case, a viable solution can be found by consulting a doctor. The doctor may be able to help with other areas in the affected individual's life that may be causing him to sweat. However, hand and body creams and lotions are the most common culprits for sweating hands.
Conversely, it is said that completely dry skin is also not healthy for the body and that a little dampness is more beneficial. This is one reason people use creams and other such products. Despite this, it is advised not to go overboard with creams and lotions, as they could be the root cause of sweating problems. Large amounts of cream can cause clogging of the skin and the sweating may only be a reaction to the hands as they try to “breath" underneath the cream and lotion.
It is advised, for sweating hands, that the use of creams be minimized. If possible, it is ideal to find a lighter cream that will give minimum coverage. The heavier creams can make problems of sweating on hands even worse. If cream is used on the body, it is wise to wash the hands thoroughly to make sure all of the cream is taken off.
