    Does using an antiperspirant cause you to sweat more from your face/head?


    A regular antiperspirant won't. In fact, a regular antiperspirant will likely make you sweat more from your pits, as your body works harder to sweat. With a product like Odaban, which completely stops sweating in the area applied, I find that I get more of what they call compensatory sweating from my chest, and sometimes back. However, I would take more sweat anywhere to avoid pit sweat, as it smells the worst, stains the most and looks the grossest.

    On the websites of the more "hardcore" anti-perspirant brands such as Drysol and Certain-Dri they make it clear than their product works to block the sweat pores in your arm pits and it is safe because your body automatically re-routs the sweat to other areas of your body. However since your entire body is covered with sweat pores they say it usually will not be noticeable in other areas. For example all the sweat isn't going to go to your feet, it will be dispersed.

    Yes, but I would imagine if you are, for example, a big foot sweater, that that area would become even sweatier, but I could be wrong. All I know is my pits are dry and don't stink, and beyond that I don't really care.

    Recently, summer has come upon and the sweltering heat has caused my pits to drip with sweat.

    Is there an unscented deoderant that doesn't interfere with my EDTs and colognes? I normally shop at the Bath and Body works for such so a recommend of a product there is very appreciated.


    You could always try a t-shirt that has protective underarm shields like these here:

    I like one called Odaban, from www.odaban.com, better. Lasts longer, stings less, more powerful, and it is in a spray bottle, so it never leaks.

    I got the recommendation from DGP a while ago. Works great. I bought two bottles online from Westons (UK). Fast shippping. Before this I was using Mitchum roll-ons which are good but Odaban is much better.

    What is Westons, and how fast do they ship? I have only ever ordered mine from the Odaban site, and my one complaint is that it takes up to three weeks to get an order. Hasn't been a problem for me yet, but I can just imagine if I leave mine in a hotel room, or run out or something and need a replacement sooner.

    Vichy produces very nice deodorants. No smell, no spots and unisex. But the power depends on your personal characteristics

    I use the Trader Joe's house brand deodorant--unscented, no aluminum. I've been happy so far (been using it for about three months), but summer hasn't really hit hard yet, so I'm not sure how I'll fare w/o a true antiperspirant.

    I personally use Lacoste deodorant. After years of trying the other stuff, I find this to work best for me. It lasts all day and doesn't leave stains on my shirts. I think they key to its effectiveness is its lightness, which lets my pits breath, unlike the other supermarket varieties.

    One of my best friends sweats profusely, without even moving or anything, he just sweats, just in his DNA. Recently he started getting Botox injections in his pits (covered by his insurance I think) and he no longer sweats. True story.

    I'm using Sharps, pit guard, and like it very much. No aluminum, goes on dry, and no scent. I think it provides only light protection, which is fine for me because I don't need much.
