No sweat

The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - YOUR HEALTH -

EX­CES­SIVE sweat­ing can af­fect one’s pro­fes­sional and so­cial life. There are two types of sweat glands:

Ec­crine glands are dis­trib­uted through­out the body and re­spon­si­ble for reg­u­lat­ing body tem­per­a­ture through the re­lease of sweat onto the body’s sur­face.

Apocrine glands, also known as scent glands, are found in the armpits and groins. Apocrine glands are mainly re­spon­si­ble for body odour as the sweat pro­duced is high in pro­tein and fatty acids, which bac­te­ria can break down eas­ily.

Us­ing anti- per­spi­rants is the most com­mon and ef­fec­tive form of treat­ing ex­ces­sive sweat­ing.

Per­spirex anti- per­spi­rants are clin­i­cally proven to pro­vide safe, un­equalled pro­tec­tion for up to five days. Its patented for­mu­la­tion is fra­grance- and stain- free and kind to sen­si­tive ar­eas of the skin.

The main in­gre­di­ent alu­minium chlo­ride re­acts with wa­ter in the sweat glands to form a deep ker­atin plug in the gland. This plug seals the sweat gland, tem­po­rar­ily halt­ing sweat pro­duc­tion.

How­ever, the plug is ex­pelled with shed­ding of dead skin cells on skin sur­face, re­sult­ing in the sweat gland be­com­ing ac­tive once again.

It takes two to seven days for this process to com­plete a cy­cle, which ex­plains the need to only ap­ply Per­spirex two to three times a week.

Per­spirex en­ables you to re­main pro­tected even when you shower, swim or bathe, so there is no need to reap­ply dur­ing the day.

Per­spirex is used be­fore go­ing to bed as the sweat glands are less ac­tive at night. For op­ti­mal re­sults, ap­ply on com­pletely dry and unbroken skin, and let the skin dry af­ter ap­pli­ca­tion and be­fore putting on clothes.

Wash it off the fol­low­ing morn­ing with soap and wa­ter. There is no need to reap­ply.

For a start, use Per­spirex ev­ery night un­til you have achieved the de­sired ef­fect ( usu­ally within a week).

For sen­si­tive skin, ap­ply ev­ery sec­ond night for two weeks. There­after, ap­ply Per­spirex two to three nights a week or as of­ten as your body needs it. Do not use the prod­uct within 48 hours af­ter hair re­moval.

The Per­spirex Orig­i­nal An­tiper­spi­rant Rol­lon ( 25ml) and Per­spirex An­tiper­spi­rant Hand and Foot Lo­tion ( 100ml) are each re­tailed at RM59.90 at Guardian Health & Beauty and other lead­ing phar­ma­cies.

Look out for the ad­ver­tise­ment in this StarSpe­cial.

Per­spirex anti- per­spi­rants are safe as well as fra­grance- and stain- free.
