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.
