Manage excessive sweating with nighttime antiperspirant use

The underarm (axillae) is made up of skin, hair and glands that secrete sweat. Because of its delicate nature, underarm skin needs regular care and attention through good personal hygiene, eating a balanced diet and adequate fluid in-take. The moist warm conditions in the axillae tend to promote bacterial growth. These micro-organisms breakdown the fatty acids contained in sweat, which produces the unpleasant body odours.

Daily bathing, followed by the use of an antiperspirant or deodorant can help you to manage the malodour. If you have an overly active body chemistry, try a nighttime application of an antiperspirant to inhibit perspiration as you sleep - you’ll wake-up feeling fresher in the morning! Clinical strength formulations that are applied the night before can provide extended dryness and odour protection that can last well through the next day - even if you shower in the morning. Making nighttime antiperspirant use a daily routine is an effective way to manage and control both wetness and body odour.
