Sweat Solutions

Beat the sweat. Here are some products that can keep you cool this summer:

Antiperspirant VS. Deodorant

The major difference is that antiperspirants stop you from sweating while a deodorant simply helps control body odour.

Origins Totally Pure Deodorant, $19, available exclusively at The Bay
Degree Clinical Water Resistant Shower Clean, $8.99, available at drug stores

Natural Alternatives

What makes these natural is that they do no contain any aluminum salts, and are free of parabens, silicones, and petroleum.

Products:

Tom’s of Maine Aluminum-free Deodorant, $8.49, www.tomsofmaine.com
Weleda Citrus Deodorant, $16, www.weleda.com

Botox

Botox is effective because it temporarily blocks the chemical signals from the nerves that stimulate the sweat glands. When the sweat glands don't receive chemical signals, the severe sweating stops. Consult your doctor to see if you are a candidate for this procedure.
