It’s no secret that stress and anxiety create a person to sweat more than usual, and this includes an increased level of foot sweat (called hyperhidrosis in the medical world). The extra moisture is bad enough itself, but it also provides a perfect environment for fungal infections like Athlete’s foot and toenail fungus, as well as creates slippage inside shoes that may lead to blisters and corns.
Foot Fix: One of the best ways to reduce foot sweat is by soaking your feet in astringent footbaths that help reduce pore size. You can also apply antiperspirant to your feet, as well as moisture-controlling foot powder.
Overall Fix: In addition to switching to a higher-strength antiperspirant, you can help reduce bodily sweat by drinking plenty of water, eating healthy foods like whole grains and vegetables, avoiding clothing and shoes made out of non-breathable, man-made materials, and bathing regularly.
