A Sticky Situation
If you suffer from excessive sweating, you know what a huge deal it is. After years of trying to get on the list, the National Organization for Rare Disorders and Coalition of Skin Diseases is adding the medical term for the condition, hyperhidrosis, to the list of skin diseases.
While excessive sweating is not completely understood, it is most often related to hormonal changes and/or a malfunction in the endocrine system. According to Secret, people who suffer from hyperhidrosis can sweat even when it's not hot outside and they aren't doing any strenuous activity. Bummer, right?
If you fall into this category, Secret Clinical Strength shares some tips for staying cool with us:
Apply your deodorant at night. Applying when your body is at its most natural state will ensure optimal protection.
Double up. Apply your deodorant twice a day, once at night and again in the morning. Scientists at Secret have done studies proving that doubling up on your deodorant can improve sweat reduction.
Be strong. Choose a prescription-strength deodorant like Secret Clinical Strength. Be wary of deodorants that include aluminum chloride and alcohol, so you don't end up irritating your skin.
