We bet you didn’t know this about how you sweat.

The sweat you pro­duce while danc­ing to Drake (phys­i­cal ex­er­tion) isn’t the same sweat you’d pro­duce if you were to meet him in per­son (emo­tional, uh, ex­er­tion). When your body temp jumps from danc­ing, ec­crine glands—which can be found over most of the body—se­crete a salty fluid that cools as it evap­o­rates. But when you’re stressed, a mix of pro­tein, lipids and amino acids is se­creted from apocrine glands, like the ones in your un­der­arms, which bac­te­ria feast on—re­sult­ing in a mal­odor­ous sit­u­a­tion. Fake some chill with De­gree’s new line of an­tiper­spi­rants, which have an an­timi­cro­bial in­gre­di­ent that works to elim­i­nate bac­te­ria as well as en­cap­su­lated-fra­grance tech­nol­ogy that re­acts to sweat and move­ment. The more you sweat, the more fra­grance is re­leased, says Ke­brabe Shibeshi, R&D man­ager, Home & Per­sonal Care, at Unilever Canada, so you’ll be cov­ered be­fore and af­ter you say some­thing re­gret­table. De­gree Ac­tive Shield Dry Spray Anti-Per­spi­rant ($6.97, at drug­stores and mass-mar­ket re­tail­ers)
