Sweating is a natural process that the body uses while trying to cool the body, losing excess water, salt, and some minerals. When you are doing some vigorous activities sweating is inevitable but why do some people seem not to sweat. Humans are born with around two to four million sweat glands. Women have them too but the men have more active glands. Let’s look at some of the reasons why some people sweat more profusely than other who barely sweat.
- Some people who sweat more mainly they experience sweat over load is also known as hyperhidrosis. When you have these conditions you will tend to sweat with little or no activities depending on the ambient temperature of the surrounding. You may also sweat excessively when your body is under stressful conditions. There is no medication to cure hyperhidrosis which might be embarrassing for most of the people who are living with this condition. There is no cure but it can be managed with medication. The main ways to prevent hyperhidrosis is by trying not to do vigorous activities. Put on some light clothing which will promote ventilation and cool your body. Don’t take hot drinks during the day; you might want to use some deodorants that have cooling effects that are they are methylated.
- Alcohol will make you sweat more than normal. This is because alcohol increases the body temperature and also your heart rate. The rise in body temperature brought about by the detoxification process in the liver. More blood will flow beneath the skin and this will promote more sweating from the sweat glands.
- If you are overweight then you are likely to suffer from more perspiration. This is because your body will be trying to get rid of the excessive heat and being really overweight makes it hard for the body to lose much heat easily. The best thing is to use cold soft drinks ice creams might help.
- Your gender also affects the rate of sweating. Men tend to sweat more than females generally. There is no way of measuring the amount of perspiration but is believed to be around four cups of sweat each day while you are not doing vigorous activities.
