What is the best type of deodorant?
There are many varieties of deodorant, and it can be overwhelming to choose which one.
There are roll-ons, sprays, antiperspirants and ones that mask sweat with fragrance, but it all depends on your preference and lifestyle.
If you travel frequently or find you need a top-up at work, a roll-on antiperspirant is ideal because it’s discreet and the bottles are smaller, making it easier to carry around.
But if you’re partaking in sports or going to the gym, a spray could be the best choice as it can cover your entire body with a few quick sprays after you’re done.
What is the difference between deodorant and antiperspirant?
Antiperspirant and deodorant are different products.
Deodorant masks odour, whereas antiperspirant reduces how much you sweat.
However, quite often both are combined into a single product to reduce sweating and to keep you smelling fresh.
When is the best time to apply deodorant?
Most people apply their deodorant in the morning before they get dressed for the day, but actually, the best time to apply deodorant is at night.
This is because your sweat glands will be more receptive to the deodorant’s active ingredients when they’re less active themselves, giving you more protection against sweat.
How do you treat hyperhidrosis?
One of the most effective ways to treat hyperhidrosis is with stronger antiperspirants that you can buy over-the-counter. You can also try wearing loose-fitting clothing made from breathable fabrics, socks that absorb moisture and leather shoes. If your hyperhidrosis is severe and over-the-counter antiperspirants don’t ease the problem, you should see your GP or dermatologist for further treatment options, including tablets that reduce sweating or botox injections.
What is hyperhidrosis?
Hyperhidrosis is a common condition characterised by excessive sweating. If you have hyperhidrosis, sweating can occur all over your body or only in certain areas like like your underarms or feet. Sweating is a normal bodily process when you’re hot or exercising, but if you’re sweating for no obvious reason, you may have hyperhidrosis and would potentially benefit from a stronger over-the-counter antiperspirant.
