Here are some great home remedies for sweaty hands:
- Rub talcum powder or cornstarch between your palms. Both of these soak up moisture pretty well. You don’t have to use a lot. Just rub a small amount between your hands right before you go anywhere.
- Use an unscented antiperspirant on your hands. Some antiperspirants are made just for hands and feed. Avoid the scented kind, as it has chemicals that can trigger sweat.
- Use a hand moisturizer or lotion with aluminum chloride. This is a great astringent that can dry the pores up and prevent sweating.
- Sometimes sweating palms are triggered by anxiety or stress. Do whatever you can to make yourself feel calm and focused. Learn some relaxation and breathing techniques and use them whenever you feel an anxiety attack coming on.
- Learn about a treatment called Iontopheresis. This is a device with electric currents and water. The combination of water and electricity “shocks” theoveractive sweat glands to prevent excess perspiration.
- Wash your hands several times a day. Dirt and bacteria lead to sweating, so keeping your hands clean at all times will prevent sweating. Carry a hand sanitizer and napkin with you whenever you go out, just in case you don’t a chance to wash them.
- Stay away from spicy foods! Spicy foods contain capsaicin, which will trigger nerve endings, which increases body temperature. When body temperature is increased, you will sweat more.
- Don’t eat any junk food or packaged food. Not only are they unhealthy, they will cause you to sweat more. This is because your body has to work extra hard to break down the processed “ingredients” in such foods.
- Try herbal remedies for sweating, such as valerian root, chamomile, tea tree oil, or St. John’s Wort. These can be taken orally or applied onto the palms directly. One of the best herbal remedies for sweating palms is sage. Take sage tablets or drink sage tea every single day for maximum results.
- In addition to sage tea, you can also drink apple cider vinegar or tomato juice. These drinks are believed to relieve sweating palm symptoms. Choose one of these and drink a cup every single day.
