arrow Why do we perspire?
Sweating is your body’s way of cooling itself by releasing excess heat. Therefore, while sweating is natural under any condition, it can be intensified for any number of reasons, including warm weather, exercise and stress.
arrow What is antiperspirant?
Antiperspirants block the flow of sweat from sweat glands to reduce wetness. In addition, because perspiration stimulates odor-causing bacteria, antiperspirants also reduce body odor, with scented antiperspirants fighting odor even more.
arrow How do antiperspirants work?
Antiperspirants use sweat against itself. Once applied, the antiperspirant is dissolved by sweat, and the dissolved particles form superficial plugs just below the skin’s surface. These plugs block the release of more perspiration. Generally, the plugs stay in place for about 24 hours and wash away over time.
arrow If sweating is natural, is there any danger in preventing it?
Actually, no. Antiperspirants are harmless. Since you have sweat glands all over your body, controlling underarm perspiration has virtually no effect on your body’s ability to cool itself.
