Bad breath, excessive sweating and unwashed hair are always conspicuous. Friends will avoid your company, and at work they will certainly condemn you for sloppiness. Unfortunately, the cause of the above problems may be poor he alth.
In our review, you will learn about the causes of hyperhidrosis and how effective deodorant is for excessive sweating.
The appearance of sweat in the stronger sex is a natural reaction of the body to sports, hot weather or heavy physical exertion. Primary sweating begins in men during adolescence and is present throughout life.
However, the cause of secondary hyperhidrosis is a little more complicated, so do not rush to buy an effective deodorant for excessive sweating. The solution to the problem must be sought from a doctor if it is associated with the following items:
- Temperature atinfectious disease.
- Effects of medication.
- Failure of the endocrine system.
- Rheumatological diseases.
- Stress and anxiety.
- Obesity and metabolic disorders.
There is no doubt that secondary hyperhidrosis causes the most discomfort to the fair sex. It is believed that a girl or woman should always look neat and exude only the scent of perfume. Wet circles in the armpits, sweat on the forehead or wet palms - a new acquaintance is out of the question, and your feeling of self-doubt will not allow any gentleman to approach you.
The above reasons for profuse sweating in women and men are the same. But for the fair sex, the list can be supplemented.
- Menstruation. During critical days, the level of estrogen rises - the body reacts to this with increased sweating and a feeling of fatigue.
- Pregnancy. Excessive sweating during the first trimester is a normal reaction that you should not be afraid of. Later, the symptom resolves without the use of any special remedy.
- Climax. At this stage, the female body withstands significant hormonal changes. There is excessive sensitivity, fatigue and sweating increases. In this situation, doctors recommend using a deodorant against profuse sweating so as not to add stress to the transition period.
Regardless of the cause of secondary hyperhidrosis, there are a few simple guidelines that can help partly cope with the problem.
First, water treatments. It is necessary to take a shower at least twice a day, and more often in summer.
Second, clothing. Avoid synthetic fabrics and overly tight silhouettes. Natural silk, linen and cotton should be your “best friends”.
Third, medical deodorants for excessive sweating. Do a little research, look at the reviews of the products on the market and choose the best one.
Fourth, food. Pay attention to your diet. Carbonated water, sweets, spicy foods and coffee increase sweating. It is better to quench your thirst in the heat with green tea or plain water.
Fifth, herbal remedies. Many herbs can help if used correctly. For example, regularly taking a bath with the addition of herbal decoctions (oak bark, sage or pine needles) can reduce sweat.
In our review, we will not dwell on the methods of treating hyperhidrosis, but we will still name inexpensive medications.
Formagel is considered the safest - it is registered by the Ministry of He alth. The effect after the procedure described in the instructions lasts up to 13 days.
Teimurov's Paste and Formidron are not recommended for use due to the presence of lead and formaldehyde.
Another option is to buydeodorant against profuse sweating. Let's look at three of the most famous products.
In 1970, Odaban was created in the UK - a deodorant that has been one of the most effective remedies in the fight against secondary hyperhidrosis for more than forty years. Today the brand line includes:
- Spray. Suitable for any area of the skin. It is very important to carefully read the instructions and apply the antiperspirant correctly. On dry, clean skin, you apply a spray before going to bed, and in the morning the place must be washed and dried. The effect lasts up to 10 days.
- Powder for feet. Active protection against shoe and foot odor for 7-10 days.
- Hand lotion.
You can buy Odaban brand products in Azbuka Vkusa supermarkets, as well as in A5, 36, 6, Stariy Lekar, Gorzdrav and many others pharmacies. A complete list with addresses and phone numbers is available on the official website.
Pros and cons
Deodorant against excessive sweating "Odaban" should be used with caution and only in accordance with the recommendations from the manufacturer. Do not apply the product on inflamed and irritated skin. After waxing underarms, for example, it should take several days.
Reviews of this deodorant are positive. Odaban copes even with severe hyperhidrosis, definitely better than mass-market antiperspirants that promise protection for 48 hours.
Sweating reallydecreases with each application, and the effect persists for several days. Now let's talk about the "cons":
- Burning. To varying degrees, it manifested itself in almost everyone who tried “Odaban”. Depending on the sensitivity of the skin, another allergic reaction may also occur. For the same reason, it is impossible to use the remedy for facial hyperhidrosis due to the risk of contact with the eyes.
- Composition. This antiperspirant deodorant is alcohol-based and contains aluminum chloride. Harmful substances can accumulate in the body and cause hydradenitis - purulent inflammation of the sweat glands.
Heavy advertising on radio and TV a few years ago made the incredibly popular DryDry - a deodorant for excessive sweating. In a pharmacy today, there is much less chance of buying a fake, because high demand has played into the hands of manufacturers of low-quality cosmetics.
The creators of DryDry do not stop expanding the series today: in addition to the classic deodorant, you can buy versions of Sensitive and Light, as well as anti-hyperperspiration wipes.
The mechanism for all deodorants from the Swedish manufacturer is the same. Due to the creation of an aluminum-protein complex in the treated area, the sweat glands decrease. According to studies, as a result of such exposure, the drug does not accumulate in the human body, even with prolonged use. Here are just some reviews, unfortunately, they say otherwise, but more on that later.
Deodorant against heavy sweating DryDry- a very effective tool. This is confirmed by numerous customer reviews. However, do not forget about the recommendations from the manufacturer, without which the result can be unpredictable.
- Use only on dry skin - otherwise discomfort, irritation or burning may occur.
- Apply deodorant an hour before bed and don't overdo it.
- When redness occurs, use an emollient cream, and in emergency cases, use a hydrocortisone cream. If all else fails, stop using DryDry and see a doctor.
- Avoid contact with eyes or mucous membranes.
Classic or Sensitive?
The first long-acting antiperspirant deodorant appeared on the Russian market. On the palms, soles of the feet and in the armpits, the product has proven its effectiveness. For best results with hyperhidrosis, it is advised to use DryDry two nights in a row, and for maintenance, go to 1-2 times a week.
A small bottle of 35 ml can last up to a year, depending on how often you use it.
The latest innovation from the Swedish manufacturer is DryDry Sensitive with a lower content of aluminum chloride hydrate - 20%. In the Classic version, this figure is 30.5%. Another difference is the absence of an alcohol base. According to the opinion of buyers, the remedy turned out to be less effective. The new formula does not cope with hyperhidrosis - moisture in the armpitsdepressions may appear as early as ten hours.
Comfort or he alth?
DryDry Classic has helped many people overcome hyper sweating and gain self-confidence. The fair sex, who had previously been forced to wear only dark clothes, were able to afford a bright wardrobe. However, along with positive reviews, it became known about frequent cases of hidradenitis.
Of course, the manufacturer claims that the "blocked" sweat comes out with the help of the kidneys, and there will be no harm from this. But the opinion of doctors sounds different: sweat that has not found a natural outlet is subjected to reverse filtration and can stagnate in the lymph nodes. This is especially dangerous for girls and women.
Sweating deodorant doesn't happen to everyone, but how do you know who's at risk? The use of such a strong remedy is justified only with real problems with sweating. If you are too lazy to use regular deodorant every day, then you better think twice before using DryDry.
The Vichy laboratory got its name from the city of the same name in France. It was here that the story of the now very successful company began in 1931, firmly among the top five luxury manufacturers in the world.
The incredible amount of useful substances and trace elements in the underground sources of the city of Vichy interested the businessman Guerin and Dr. Aller. The main component of Vichy cosmetics to this day isunique water containing 17 mineral s alts and 30 trace elements.
Based on the needs of men and women, experts create great beauty products. Dermatological tests on all skin types and cooperation only with renowned laboratories contribute to the reputation of the brand. In addition, the fact that cosmetics is distributed only through pharmacy chains adds confidence.
Vichy “7 days”
Does not contain ethyl alcohol and parabens - these are the main words that draw attention to a small box containing Vichy antiperspirant deodorant. The name “7 Days” promises dry armpits and a feeling of comfort.
Inside the bottle of 30 ml is a cream with a non-sticky and very delicate texture. The product is applied to dry, clean skin also before bedtime according to the scheme indicated in the instructions.
According to reviews on women's portals and forums, with pronounced hyperhidrosis, the remedy may not help in very hot weather, but in general, the manufacturer keeps its promises. There is also an economical consumption: a “pea” of cream is needed for one application, so a tube is enough for 6-9 months.
Despite the fact that Vichy sweat deodorant is designed for women, its scent is more like a man's. Fortunately, there is no trace of him in the morning.
It would not be superfluous to recall the Russian analogue of the famous DryDry. “Algel” is an equally popular product in the category"Deodorants for excessive sweating." Feedback from most buyers confirms its effectiveness.
So, the design and composition really resembles the "big brother" from Sweden - the same alcohol and aluminum chlorohydrate. In a small concentration, there are extracts of green tea, sage and chamomile, as well as menthol. The cost of Algel deodorant is almost two times lower, which undoubtedly attracts buyers.
According to the information from the manufacturer, after 3-5 days of using the product in the armpits, maximum comfort is achieved. Also suitable for hands and feet.
