Most of us have the habit to apply antiperspirant on the morning before leaving the house, being positive that armpit skin needs to “breathe” overnight.
Dee Anna Glaser dermatologist, president and founding member of the International Hyperhidrosis Society, says that the best time is at night before bed, to allow sufficient time to action for substances that prevent sweating.
At night, the skin secretes an optimum amount of sweat, so as to allow efficient absorption of the active ingredient in antiperspirant composition, which reaches sweat gland ducts.
When we apply in the morning after we took a shower, our body secretes too much sweat to allow better absorption of antiperspirant substances.
How to apply this product is also essential. One of the rules is that the skin needs to be clean and dry. Do not apply immediately after shower, when the skin is still damp, because the water prevents optimum absorption of aluminum – substance in antiperspirants that protects us from sweat and odors.
