Me and the Horse - We Sweat

October 14th, 2009 at 04:26 am

Remember the old chestnut " horses sweat, men perspire, ladies glow" Well I'm here to tell you, me and the horse, we both sweat! I didn't realize how much until I tried a deodorent without the anti-perspirent. I got a sample from one of my survey companies of a new scent of some brand of deodorent (they don't tell you which one, plain white label). I am supposed to use it for two weeks, and then answer some questions, SOP. By the second day, I was not liking that sticky feeling in the pits, yuck! By the end of the first week, I had wet patches under the arms of my uniforms by the end of a shift, good thing it's night and nobodys looking! I tried putting a little body powder under there, too little and its still sticky, enough to kill the stickiness, and I'm wearing cake batter. I know that the aluminum that they put in anti-perspirent isn't supposed to be good for you, but i'm going to have to invest in some dress shields otherwise. Maybe I'm just a sweater (someone who sweats a lot, not the furry thing)and I never realized it. Although I do get that little trickle down the center of my back when I'm working hard, or in the sun, who doesn't? Someone is going to have to do a lot of convincing before I'm giving up my Degree, or my scrubs may go on strike.

    I used to never sweat until I hit perimenopause, now I sweat!

    That feeling will last approximately two to four weeks, then your body will adjust and your pits will sweat less. I've been using natural, aluminum free, deodorant for a few months now and my pits have progressed to the point where they don't sweat any more. They're not 100% dry like other parts of your skin, but they're definitely not wet. Haha, the first few weeks, I was constantly sniffing my pits, worrying that the sweat will cause the smell anyway, and wore mostly black so they won't show.

    Make sure you wear clothing that are loose around your pits so they can be air dry.
