More than three million sweat glands secrete sweat continuously, so our body maintains a normal temperature. On the day through sweat glands secrete about one liter of fluid. In itself, it does not smell, but when in contact with the bacteria, which are always present on the skin, an unpleasant smell. Today offer a huge range of different funds with sweat, the choice is yours.

So, what do you choose? If the pot is different pungent odor, then you will approach deodorants. They fight bacteria - the main cause of the smell. The composition of deodorants include triclosan, or farnesol. Triclosan is struggling with the microbes at the root, but acts aggressively. If you have a bright, sensitive skin, it is more appropriate farnesol, derived from the fusion of essential oils, it is not as effective as triclosan, but spares the skin microflora.

Deodorant - one of the most popular. They are compact and easy to use, but for a final drying takes some time.

Not so long ago appeared deo-gels. They are more economical in application than the spray and do not leave marks on clothing.

Perfumed deodorants cope with an unpleasant smell for a short time. They are recommended for moderate sweating and faintly pronounced odor. But this means it is better not to use in hot weather, as high-temperature aromatic additives may increase the sensitivity of the skin and cause irritation.

If you're really sweating, but the sweat has no odor, it is best to use antipersperantami. Their use can reduce the amount allocated to sweat for 40-50 per cent. The composition of antipersperantov include aluminum compounds, or zinc, which cover excretory ducts of the sebaceous glands and, consequently, reduce the secretion of sweat. But they were not advised to apply in situations, followed by profuse sweating. Antipersperanty only be applied once a day after a shower.

Deodorants, antiperspirants - three in one: they deodorize, kill bacteria and block the sweat glands. Today they are most effective.

If you have sensitive, but very dry skin, suitable emulsion creams and talc. Talcum powder absorbs sweat well, clothes do not stick to the body. Use it to the shower, and before the application must be carefully wipe the skin.

And recently, in Japan, went on sale chewing gum and candy to the effect of a deodorant. They contain aromatic components which are mixed after applying to the secret of the sweat glands. As a result of the body begin to assume a pleasant smell. While the manufacturer offers several flavors, including rose, vanilla and orange. But the duration of such a "deodorant" is not high: only 1-2 hours of chewing gum and candy from 3-4 hours.
