Dealing with sweaty armpits
Sweaty armpits(Hidrosis) as the name implies, this is when there is secretion of sweats from our underarm that causes dampness on our clothes and can cause embarrassment.
There are some effective ways to deal with this problem instead of covering it up with extra clothing.
why not try some of these methods:
USING ANTIPERSPIRANTS(APS) :
Deodorants might kill odours but it doesn’t stop you from sweating in your underarm completely unlike Antiperspirants that kills both odour causing bacteria and also blocks your sweat glands from producing underarm sweat. If regular APS doesn’t work for you then switch over to stronger ones with higher amount of Aluminium Chloride. This APS should be applied on dry skin and at night after bathing.
WAITING BETWEEN SHOWERING AND DRESSING:
After bathing, it is wise to wait a few minutes before dressing up for the day especially if u had a hot shower. Some people don’t even bother drying up(e.g my brother) and its bad. So please ensure to wait a few minutes even after drying up to allow residual moisture dry from your skin.
SHAVING YOUR ARMPITS:
Hair as we know, holds lots of moisture and shaving the hairs in our underarm can also assist in reducing the amount of sweat that gathers up in that region so please shave, not only for the sake of Hidrosis but to also look good and presentable.
: Please drink enough water. Drinking a lot of water to stay hydrated can also help reduce the amount of sweat that gathers around our underarm.
WEARING BREATHABLE, LOOSE FITTING CLOTHES:
This doesn’t even need much explaining, the freer the clothes we wear, the less likely we are to sweat in our under arm. Loose clothes are not for only old people, you can still wear loose clothes and still be classy and fresh.
