How to treat your embarrassing body problems

Unfortunately, our bodies aren’t always on our site, and there are a lot of things that they do that aren’t necessarily unhealthy, but are embarrassing or uncomfortable.

Here are some of those issues, and ways that you can change them.

EXCESS SWEATING

Particularly in the summer, excess sweating can be a difficult thing to deal with for a lot of people, even if in the winter it’s easy to cover up with layers and dark colors. If you’re having problems with excess sweating on any part of your body, talk to your doctor – you may be suffering from hyperhidrosis and they can prescribe treatments such as high strength deodorants or even Botox in your armpits or on the palms of your hands. In the meantime, remember that sweating is natural and nothing to be ashamed of.

HAIR LOSS

Although a lot of men end up losing some hair at some point in their lives, it can still be hard to handle – it’s a blow to the self esteem, particularly if it happens at a young age. A lot of the time there isn’t much that can be done about balding – just remember to treat your hair gently and don’t wash it too harshly. Look online to learn more on how to prevent hair fall problems – there are special shampoos you could use and a lot of hairstyle suggestions. Just remember not to go for a combover – that doesn’t look good on anyone!

STRETCH MARKS

Stretch marks are something that many, many people have – whether they’re on women’s stomachs and breasts after pregnancy, or whether you gained a lot of weight thanks to medication so you have stretch marks on different parts of your body, or whether they simply occurred after puberty. First of all, remember that a lot more people have stretch marks than you may think, so don’t be ashamed. Secondly, remember that even if they’re bright red, they will probably fade to silver after time.

ACNE

Remember that having acne doesn’t mean that you’re dirty or that you don’t eat healthily or take care of your skin – although sometimes cutting certain foods out of your diet can help your acne, you haven’t done anything wrong. Acne is caused by sebaceous glands, which are just below your skin and produce sebum, which can sometimes block your pores.

Make sure that you cleanse and moisturize your skin carefully every morning and evening, that you exfoliate carefully to remove dead skin cells, and that you talk to a skincare specialist if you really want to improve your skin. Birth control or medication can do wonders for many people.

BLADDER WEAKNESS

Urinary incontinence is extremely common – because it isn’t something that usually gets talked about, you may feel embarrassed if your bladder occasionally leaks when you sneeze, exercise, laugh or cough. It’s particularly common in women who have given birth, and who are in the ages between 35 and 60. Stress incontinence can often be caused by a weak pelvic floor, which can be helped by pelvic floor exercises, losing weight and quitting smoking. You can also wear pads for extra safety.
