Excessive sweating is a common problem that more than 3% of the population faced with. It is not only a cause of embarrassment for the individual, this condition can also create many problems with someone's lifestyle as well.

However there are different ways that can help you to reduce your excessive sweating.
Check these helpful methods to avoid hyperhidrosis:

Keep Away From Sugar

having high sugar level in your blood produces hyper activity and anxiety that can easily produce excessive stress, also meaning excessive sweating.

Avoid Alcohol

Drinking drinks with Alcohol causes the dilatation of blood vessels that result in an increase in body temperature and therefore excessive sweat.

Don't Eat Spicy Foods:

Spicy foods have the same effects as alcohol, it makes the heart pumps more blood and so the body, to regulate itself produces sweat.

Adopt Your Clothing:

Don't over dress, and in summer or any other hot weather don't wear synthetic fibers. Use breathing fabrics like cotton. This will ventilate your body and void any accumulation of sweat.

Avoid Caffeine:

Caffeine is a stimulant that increases your anxiety. Caffeine could be found in coffee and other soda drinks.

Stop Smoking:

Smoking is also a vessel dilator just like alcohol.

Learn Yoga or Meditation:

A common cause for excessive sweating is stress. To avoid or reduce stress you should learn to control it. The best way to control is by learning meditation or yoga techniques. Mastering those can make a huge difference on your life.

Is there any ways to reduce excessive forehead sweating?

I tend to sweat alot, but mainly on my forehead. I notice when I'm around other people during warm weather, my forehead would start to sweat, when others seem to be fine.

Any sorta vitamins or remedies out there to slow it down or to stop it?

My friend works in a fine dining restaurant and has to wear a tuxedo. For the proper look, he has to wear an undershirt, tuxedo shirt, and tuxedo jacket. With all the running around and heat in the back area of the restaurant, it can get quite warm.

He is concerned not only about underarm sweat, but also on the forehead.

To stop the excessive sweating try:

1. Drysol - a prescription deodorant
2. Drink more water to lower your body temperature.
3. Drink Green Tea at night
4. Try Certain Dri (non-prescription deodorant)
5. Avoid spicy foods and alcohol
6. try Iontophoresis treatments. You can learn about them through the source link below.
7. There's something called a Sage Tea Soak solution. Again, you can learn about it through the source link below.
8. If the sweating is bad enough, some people will opt towards ETS (Endoscopic Thorasic Surgery). This is, however, a LAST resort.

You can find tons other suggestions and natural solutions through the link I've provided.
