Tomato juice can reduce the amount you sweat due to its active ingredient properties. Studies state that by drinking tomato juice your pours naturally shrink which reduces chronic sweating. It can also help regulate your body temperature. There are a number of ways to consume tomato juice; the most successful is to drink a glass or two of tomato juice each day or by adding tomatoes into your daily meals. Some studies also claim that you can actually apply pure tomato juice to your underarms and let it rest on your skin for 20 minutes before washing it off. By doing this your pours will naturally absorb the minerals within the tomato juice, therefore reducing underarm sweat naturally.
