Hyperhidrosis or excessive sweating is an embarrassing and uncomfortable condition which calls for prescription strength antiperspirants with a higher percentage of aluminum chloride (15% or higher). However, prescription strength Certain Dri Antiperspirant and Certain Dri A.M. Underarm Refresher are available at drug and department stores nationwide at an affordable price. Together, these products provide lasting wetness and odor protection for up to 72 hours.
Certain Dri Antiperspirant is a liquid roll-on and works best when applied in the evening after showering. This way, the product can penetrate the skin and sweat glands during sleep. Certain Dri Antiperspirant is clear and dries quickly leaving no residue. Only one or two passes are needed for the product to work.
At first, the product might sting and irritate skin. After a week of use the irritation will subside for most users and many see results the next dry. After a few weeks of daily use, users can taper the application to every other day or even just two to three treatments a week. Some users can get by with only one weekly treatment. Certain Dri Antiperspirant works because it shrinks sweat glands and stops wetness before it starts.
Some users may have a faint odor during the day and will need to complement their Certain Dri routine with Certain Dri A.M. Underarm Refresher. This liquid roll-on product has a fresh unisex scent and gives lasting odor protection during the day. After applying in the morning, users should wait until the liquid has dried before putting on clothing to avoid staining.
Certain Dri’s line of antiperspirant and underarm refresher work incredibly well and last nearly a year before needing replacement. However, there are a few caveats to consider. Since users will no longer be sweating under their arms, perspiration will re-route to other areas of the body. For some, this might pose a problem especially if the sweat re-routes to the hands or face. However, this is usually not the case and most users will find life much more comfortable with dry underarms. Certain Dri Antiperspirant should never be used after shaving and users who shave daily will not be able to use the product due to the extreme irritation that will follow.
Those that find themselves throwing out shirts and avoiding social situations because of excessive wetness should give Certain Dri a try and see just how comfortable life can be without the worry of stains and odor. These two products can make a difference in your life and your wardrobe’s.
