3 Places to apply antiperspirant (besides your armpits)
Sweating is a problem in many areas of a person’s body, not only their armpits. Having sweaty hands or feet isn’t that much of a rarity, but there are people who sweat on even stranger parts of their body. This occurs because of hyperhidrosis which causes excessive sweating even when there is no reason to.
The question is:
Can you apply antiperspirant on those areas of your body?
Yes. As a matter of fact, not only can you use it on other areas of your body besides your armpits, but there are actually products specifically designed for different parts of your body.
Let’s take a look at the most common places sweating can occur; this is called focal hyperhidrosis which affects armpits, hands, face and feet. Excessive sweating on your entire body or large areas, called generalized hyperhidrosis, is most likely caused by a medical condition.
People suffering from focal hyperhidrosis are able to ease the inconveniences of it with plenty of non-surgical treatments:
- Prescription strength antiperspirant.
- Iontophoresis (a low intensity electric current treatment)
- Special medication called anticholinergics that act upon the nerve signals before they reach the sweat glands.
Antiperspirant for hands
Sweaty palms lead to unpleasant consequences in you social and professional life. Image going to a job interview, only to greet your interviewer with soaking wet hands. Sounds unpleasant, doesn’t it?
Most antiperspirants used specifically for your palms/hands are talc-based, and have an instant effect.
Antiperspirant for feet
Perspiration on your feet is usually the cause of unpleasant odor and other inconveniences.
There are products specifically designed for stopping foot perspiration.
Antiperspirant for head and face
The antiperspirant you apply on your forehead/bald head must be adequate for sensitive skin and mild (Look on the ingredient list for Aloe Vera, provitamin B5, etc…)
A different entry in this category is antiperspirant for bald head (especially if you shave it). Completely bare skin tends to sweat a lot more than parts of your body that are covered with hair (Scientists speculate that this is the reason why humans are the only primates to lose their fur, to prevent overheating through sweating). Apply the product gently with a cotton wool.
The antiperspirant that you can safely use on all these areas of your body:
