You need more sodium
Salty sweat is your body’s request for more sodium. If your sweat stings your eyes, burns in an open cut, leaves a gritty feeling on your skin, or produces white streaks on your face or clothes, it could be your cue to amp up your sodium intake. Add salt to foods such as eggs, vegetables, or meats, and drink a sports drink rather than plain water when you exercise, advises Runner’s World. Here are smart tricks to get rid of sweat stains.
