Home remedies to control sweat

The high temperatures typical of summer make us sweat more than usual, so we have to live with the discomfort that it entails, the fences in the clothes or, even, the bad smell. Sweating is a natural process in the body that helps us regulate our temperature while also allowing us to discard impurities. The usual causes that cause us to sweat are the temperature of the environment, practicing physical exercise and stressful situations (In all of them the temperature of our body rises so it acts to self-regulate through sweat).
