Some people sweat when they eat  this is  a condition called gustatory hyperhidrosis or gustatory sweating.The types of food you consume prove to be very important factors in trying to reduce your sweating problem. If you have this problem, perhaps the best thing that you could do is to do a change in your diet.

Just so you would know, here are some food you are to avoid if you want to get rid of your sweating dilemma.


Spicy Food

Sweating from eating spicy foods is called gustatory sweating. Nerves are triggered in the autonomic nervous system everytime we eat spicy food. Nerves connected to our salivary glands are also used by the body to trigger sweating. When we eat spicy foods, they activate the nerves and we start producing acetylcholine, the neurotransmitter that causes us to sweat.

 Caffeinated Drinks

Caffeine does make you sweat. Caffeine is a stimulant of the sympathetic nervous system, which, amongst other effects, increases sweating.


Alcohol contains toxins that your body tries to rid itself of. One way it does this is through your pores by sweating. The change of sugar in your blood can cause sweating. Alcohol also causes blood vessels near the skin to dilate, or enlarge.This dilation also occurs during physical activity and helps instigate the sweating process.


If you dont want to make your smell unpleasant then avoid eating garlic. Garlic has a  sulfur-containing molecule. These sulfur molecules are absorbed into the bloodstream and lungs, escaping through exhaled air and perspiration. Thus, the garlic breath. And, in some people who consume massive quantities, a noticeable garlicky bodily odor can result.

Hot Food

Foods that are hot temperature-wise can also make you sweat such as hot coffee, hot tea, and hot soups. It may cause you to sweat more than normal because it raises your body temperature which will cause sweating while your body is trying to cool itself down.

Well, now you know what food triggers excess sweat production in your body, the simplest thing you can now do is to avoid them.

We all look forward to a well-earned vacation and the chance to enjoy some rest and relaxation. For many of us that also means the opportunity to indulge ourselves with some extra meals and treats that we might not otherwise have if we were at home. Nothing wrong with that of course, but a quick look in the mirror after we have returned can have some of us wanting to get back on track and feel better as quickly as possible after a dose of over-indulgence.

Don’t deny your body

One of the first things that many of us will try to do when we have binged and feel a bit bloated and lethargic, is to try to starve ourselves. This is a bad idea and won’t actually work as it is more likely to make you feel hungry and could even lead you to over-indulge again because your energy levels and resistance becomes too low.

When you feel hungry, you should eat but in moderation and also try to only eat healthy items that will not only tackle your hunger but also provide you with some vitamins and proteins. Try to aim to consume plenty of veggies and take on board some food that consists of lean protein. Starving ourselves is almost a form of self-punishment but it won’t make you feel any better and it certainly won’t help you to feel better fast after a bout of holiday over-indulgence.

Plenty of juice

Drinking plenty of water is always a smart move when trying to keep yourself properly hydrated and to help you start feeling better about yourself as quickly as possible after your vacation-related food and drink sins. Another excellent way of kick-starting your body into better shape is to take a three day juice cleanse where you can get your vitamin levels up to pre-holiday levels and very quickly start to feel much better.

Fresh foods

Choosing as many fresh foods as possible for your shopping basket is not only a really good idea for sourcing plenty of natural vitamins and nutrients but it can also make you feel good in spirit as well as body.

A meal that has been made by you from scratch using only natural ingredients wherever possible is going to taste really nice compared to a processed meal and it will almost certainly make you feel better and heighten your enjoyment of the food in front of you, when you know what has gone into it.

Body detox

Feeling good again after a spell of over-indulgence is not just about what food and drink you consume to help you recover, it is also about relaxing your body and mind. Health benefits of Walking, walking exerciseTo help your body detox from an assault of too much food and sugar in the system, take a long walk in the countryside and take in plenty of fresh air along the way, followed by a relaxing bath or shower using some bath salts or essential oils. A physical and mental cleanse works wonders as part of your efforts to feel better fast. Over-indulging on vacation is all part of the fun of being away from our normal routine, but it is also a nice feeling to get back to normal as quickly as possible and feel better about our body health.

How to Have a Healthy, Glowing Skin

Glowing, gorgeous, glistening beautiful skin can be the perfect accessory to anyones style. Like what skin experts always say, youve got only one skin so it always pays to give it our utmost care.

Sure, we could always run to the nearest shop that sells beauty and skin care products, but how do we do skin care naturally? Here are a few tips.


Cleanse your  skin  twice a day: once in the morning and once at night before going to bed. It is important to cleanse your skin every night to remove make-up, impurities, dead skin cells, and excess oil. But a morning cleansing is also beneficial, as it removes any toxins  the skin eliminates during the night and refreshes the skin, preparing it for make-up application

Get a right amount of sleep

Sleep can make you look younger. You cannot wake up early as fresh as daisy when you do not plan to sleep early. Not sleeping early, could hinder in the body repair process. The body itself repairs the daily damages caused to skin by stress, ultraviolet rays and other unsafe exposures.

Choose the right food

You are what you eat, and what you eat has a major effect on the condition of your skin. Fatty and greasy food  arent going to leave you with gorgeous, glowing skin. Most experts say eating a balanced diet is the best way to get your share of good food for healthy skin. Everything you eat becomes a part of not only your inner being, but the outer fabric of your body as well. The healthier the foods that you consume, the better your skin will look.

Drink a plenty of water

Claims have been made that drinking water gives you a radiant, healthy, younger- looking complexion. If your skin is not getting the sufficient amount of water, the lack of hydration will present itself by turning your skin dry, tight and flaky. Dry skin has less resilience and is more prone to wrinkling.

Dont smoke

Smoking causes wrinkles by narrowing blood vessels in the outer layers of skin.This causes less blood flow and reduces the amount of oxygen and nutrients that can get to the skin. Smoking  also damages important connective fibers like collagen and elastin, causing permanent wrinkles. If you want to have a glowing skin, then quit smoking!
