How to Stop Sweating and Regain Your Confidence

The Problem of Excessive Sweating

I struggled with embarrassing perspiration for so long, I had almost given up trying to find a solution. I never imagined that getting excessive sweating under control could be so simple.

I used to sweat so much that tight shirts were out of the question. I'd see the cutest top, buy it, wear it once, and be so embarrassed by the sweat stains that the shirt would never see daylight again.

I tried solid antiperspirants, roll-ons antiperspirants. Even Mitchum, which "contains the maximum amount of active ingredient," didn't seem to make a difference.

I wore extra-large T-shirts to hide my sweating. Even though no one else saw it, I could still feel the dampness under my arms. It destroyed my confidence.

How I Stopped Sweating: Certain Dri Antiperspirant

The answer isn't expensive or hard to find. There's no magic behind it. Certain Dri Protection Strength Antiperspirant works.

When I started using Certain Dri Antiperspirant, I stopped shaving my underarms and switched to waxing. Just wait a few days between waxing and applying Certain Dri Antiperspirant.

I was surprised: waxing is easier, more convenient, and less time-consuming than shaving my underarms. My underarms are the easiest parts of my body to wax. There's almost no discomfort when I pull off the wax, and the results last for weeks.

When I first started using Certain Dri Antiperspirant, I applied it every night. I was amazed that my underarms actually stayed dry all day. But I thought that 'lasting 72 hours' was marketing garbage, so it was a few months before I began using Certain Dri Antiperspirant every other night.

The packaging wasn't lying: Certain Dri Antiperspirant really does last 72 hours! I apply it every third night, and I'm still totally dry every day.

Certain Dri is only an antiperspirant; it's not a deodorant. So I still apply a deodorant after I shower. Since I don't have to worry about its strength, I can have fun and choose whatever I want. There are so many new fragrances in the deodorant aisle; I'm glad I have my sweating under control so I can choose any scent I like.

Aveeno Overnight Itch Relief Cream Relieves Any Itching

Since I wax my underarms and only apply Certain Dri Antiperspirant once every three nights, there's no irritation. It may itch a little, but there's a very easy way to take care of that...

Aveeno Overnight Itch Relief Cream soothes within seconds.

First, I apply Certain Dri Antiperspirant to clean skin. When my skin is completely dry, I take a pearl-sized amount of Aveeno Overnight Itch Relief Cream and massage it into my skin.

I massage firmly with my fingertips or palm. It feels great and the provides all-night relief.

Tips to Avoid Problems with Certain Dri Antiperspirant

Some things can only be learned through experience, but hopefully you can learn from my experience and avoid these mistakes.

Do not use hair-removal cream on skin where you apply Certain Dri Protection Strength Antiperspirant. This includes any depilatory creams like Nair and Veet. I wax my underarms, but if you prefer you can shave while using Certain Dri Antiperspirant.

Avoid getting AHA or BHA cream on skin where you use Certain Dri Antiperspirant. You can physically exfoliate with a loofah or scrub (I exfoliate my underarms quite vigorously in the shower and have no problems at all), but don't use a chemical exfoliator on or near your underarms.

Certain Dri Antiperspirant Lives Up to its Claims

Certain Dri Antiperspirant is a godsend for those of us who have tried every "prescription-strength" antiperspirant/deodorant on the market to no avail.

It took me a while to find the best routine, so I hope my advice will allow you to find your best routine quicker.

I get my best results by shaving instead of waxing, applying Aveeno Overnight Itch Relief Cream, and using Certain Dri Antiperspirant once every three nights.

I love being able to wear cute, form-fitting shirts. I don't have to worry about the heat or humidity. I don't have to check every couple seconds to see how big the sweat stains are. And I don't ruin my tops with unsightly yellow stains under the arms.

The saying is, "girls don't sweat, they perspire." But no one wants to 'perspire' under their arms. Certain Dri Antiperspirant keeps me dry and worry-free.

There's nothing like getting your confidence back.
