DON’T SWEAT IT
Heat combined with nerves might mean your normal deodorant won’t cut it on w-day. If so, try an extrastrong antiperspirant such as Perspirex Original, £8.49, Sure’s Maximum Protection Confidence, £4.99, or the roll-on applicator from Driclor Solution, £6.19. Also worth trying is The Dandi Patch, £8.99 for 10. These perspiration shields are worn under your arms and can be a lifesaver.
Some brides have turned to more invasive ways to control extreme perspiration. “Botox has become a popular way to manage excessive sweating,” says Dr Dawn Harper of Channel 4’s Embarrassing Bodies. “The toxin blocks the nerves supplying the sweat glands and is very effective at stopping sweating.”
