It’s Officially Summer! How to Keep Yourself Cool, Calm & Collected This Season 

Summer is one of the most intense seasons of the year, bring burning hot days and smotheringly hot nights. This year’s swelling temperatures and heat waves are only making things worse, forcing our bodies to work double over-time in the effort to cool down. That means a bigger risk for summertime major summertime problems, like excessive sweating.

What is sweat and what can you do about it?

You sweat anytime your body temperature is elevated—when you’re hot, when you exercise, when you eat spicy foods, when you’re anxious, and when you’re sick—and although inconvenient, sweat plays an important role in the regulation of body temperature. In the simplest terms, sweat is the body’s way of cooling itself down. If you sweat a normal amount, there are a multitude of simple ways to limit sweating to a minimum, including drinking cool or iced water, spending more time in the shade than in the sun, wearing loose and airy clothing, and even putting your antiperspirant on after a cool nighttime shower rather than in the morning. For most people, these types of simple changes can reduce or eliminate unnecessary sweating.

What if you can’t stop sweating?

For some people, however, small lifestyle changes meant to reduce sweating don’t work and the sweat just keeps coming.  Known clinically as hyperhidrosis, excessive sweating is often characterized by wet palms, wet soles of the feet, sweat that consistently soaks through clothing, and frequent, often unwarranted sweating. Those who experience hyperhidrosis sweat more than is needed to cool the body, and while the effects aren’t physically harmful, they can cause severe social anxiety, embarrassment, depression, and isolation. In the summertime, when temperatures and humidity are already elevated, the problem only gets worse as the body’s natural inclination to sweat kicks into overdrive.

How iontophoresis can help you to stop sweating and get your life back

When simple lifestyle adjustments like clothing and deodorant changes don’t work to reduce excessive sweating, there is another option. Iontophoresis is a non-invasive, drug-free, and needle-free treatment method. While there are many different iontophoresis treatments on the market, Dermadry’s patented anti-sweat device is clinically proven to be between 72-percent to 100-percent effective at reducing or eliminating the symptoms of hyperhidrosis for up to six weeks with just one treatment. And when applied according to instructions, iontophoresis can be safely conducted in the privacy of your own home, where no one needs to know your secret.

With no end in sight for rising temperatures and heat waves, it’s more important than ever to know the difference between sweating and hyperhidrosis. That one piece of knowledge can help you to not only beat the heat, but beat the problem, through every summer heat wave, and every other season, too.
