There are three main causes of sweat, with stress sweat smelling the worst, because it comes from a different gland:
1. Sweat caused by heat or movement comes from the Eccrine glands, found all over your body and concentrated in your palms and soles of the feet, made up mostly all from water
2. Stress sweat also comes from the Apocrine glands, larger and concentrated in the underarms, which contains a much higher concentration of nutrients that bacteria feeds off of. More nutrients means more bacteria, and more bacteria causes the worst-smelling odor
- Secret research showed that women actually sweat on average 30 times more when stressed than resting
- New Secret Clinical Strength Stress Response has proprietary technology (BCD molecules) that actually traps and locks away odor to neutralize it and then releases a fresh scent, which is most important when protecting you from stress sweat since simply covering it up with fragrance can make you smell even worse
- Secret Clinical Strength Stress Response is proven 4X more effective at protecting stress-induced underarm wetness than a regular APDO
I'm going to keep buying it for sure. I actually just bought it.
I'm a rather normal gal and so I always pictured "clinical" needs as being something - well - medical. You know? Like... someone who you picture as having a legitimate issue with sweating.
But - hey - I'm a team player. I'm always willing to give things a try... especially something that is in the land of health and beauty.
I not only tried it but I keep on using it! What?
Here's the deal. I am a woman who is enjoying the magic of hormone-free menopause and, when I say "magic", I really mean "hell".
On top of that "magic", I also live in Texas. We're currently in the autumnal season which means we dance between temperatures in the 50's and the 90's... in the same day. I've got the outside temperature influence fighting with the interior influence of hot flashes and cold sweats all wrapped in my insane life schedule. While I don't have a medical problem with sweat, I have a life problem called - well - life.
This stuff really keeps up! I don't feel gross when I apply it because it's smooth and dry. I don't feel gross by the end of the day because it stays where it was applied. The scent is very nice, too. I'm a big fan of low or fresh fragrances. I do detest something overly-powerful in that area so it was nice to not open the box and be overpowered by baby powder. The scent I've got is called "completely clean" and it's like a very light hint of fresh laundry.
Give it a try, yourself. I think you'll be just as pleasantly surprised as I am.
