Sweating is your body’s way of cooling itself off and maintaining a healthy temperature. You’re born with between two and four million sweat glands. Women have more sweat glands than men, but men’s glands are more active. How much you sweat depends on your gender, the number of sweat glands you have, how hot it is, how intensely you’re moving or how anxious you feel.
Unfortunately, some people suffer from excessive sweating, a common condition called Hyperhidrosis. Their bodies’ faucets turn on and their palms, back and every other part of their body become covered in sweat, even if it’s cold out or they aren’t moving at all.
If the above sounds like you, what do you do to protect yourself throughout the day? One can certainly put on all the deodorant in the world but it won’t stop your heavy sweating and it certainly won’t help you feel less wet.
Women who are more prone to sweating have a harder time dealing with this issue then men. It just isn’t as classy or respectable for a woman to walk around all day or be in the workplace sweating through their clothing. How do women deal with this? Some women wear pads (like they would for their period) throughout the day to make sure their sweat doesn’t “leak” through their skirts/pants. Some women also try prescription deodorant to stop their armpit sweat from going through their blouses.
