Are your thoughts consumed with methods and products to prevent or reduce your sweat? Products such as deodorant, antiperspirant, powders, and sprays all boast the ability to stop, reduce or block sweating. It’s understandable why you’d want to prevent sweat; it can be embarrassing and stink at the same time. While these products are excellent and useful, it’s also important to remember why you sweat and the benefits it can have for your body.
Benefits Of Sweat
- Sweat helps you smile. Perspiration increases your level of endorphin hormones. These hormones are known to help you feel good emotionally and physically.
- Sweat helps your skin to shine. When you sweat your pores open and allow the toxins trapped in your body to exit and clear your skin from pimples and blemishes.
- Sweat works as a rinsing agent for your body. When you sweat, you are rinsing, or detoxifying, your body. You flush your body, and your sweat acts as the conduit for it.
- Sweat works to keep you healthy. Your sweat can help your body fight tuberculosis germs and other harmful pathogens.
- Sweat lowers your risk of kidney stones. Sweat limits the accumulation of salt and calcium in your kidneys and urine. Salt and calcium are the cause of kidney stones.
- Sweat Cools Your Body. Sweat acts like your personal air conditioner.
