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.
Apocrine glands, also known as scent glands, are found in the armpits and groins. Apocrine glands are responsible for body odour as the sweat produced is high in protein and fatty acids, which bacteria can break down easily. plug in the gland, temporarily halting sweat production.
However, the keratin plug is not a permanent fixture as it is expelled with the shedding of dead skin cells. 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 off in 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. Do not use 48 hours after hair removal.
The Perspirex Original roll-on antiperspirant (25ml) and Perspirex Hand and Foot Lotion (100ml) are each retailed at RM68.90 (inclusive of GST) at Guardian Health & Beauty, Caring Pharmacy and other leading pharmacies.
