Why do Antiperspirants Fail?

Antiperspirants are used to reduce the amount of sweat that is released by the eccrine sweat glands and ducts onto the skin surface. Deodorants, on the other hand, are used to mask odor. The most common reason for antiperspirant failure is when it’s not applied evenly. In order for an antiperspirant to work, it must have contact with each and every sweat gland on dry skin. Individuals who sweats profusely may want to apply their antiperspirant twice a day – once in the morning and once at night. Some of the most effective over the counter antiperspirants are Secret Clinical Strength Invisible Solid Antiperspirant Deodorant or Certain Dri Prescription Strength Clinical.  If these products don’t improve your condition, medical treatments can help. Visit the International Hyperhidrosis Society for more information.
