Hello my name is RoleModel and I am a sweat-aholic. I sweat no matter what I am doing or what the weather is. Obviously I sweat much more when I am active but my personal battle with BO gets particularly rough during the hot, sticky summer. I have tried virtually every deodorant. Currently I am on a mission to find something that leaves me dry and not smelling like a teenage boy. I had somewhat short lived pleasant results with Degree clinical strength. I smelled fresh but then I feel like my body chemistry got accustomed to it and it stopped working. Secret clinical strength was more disappointing. I had high expectations after all of the wonderful things I've heard. I was damp and smelly almost immediately. I've also tried Secret outlast with mediocre results. My underarms are still damp and the BO is still there. This may also be the cause for my constant cystic acne. Maybe my hormones are out of whack. I sweat like a man and my face still erupts like a teenage boy, maybe I have too much testosterone. I shower constantly and scrub my pits with an antibacterial soap. I've tried applying deodorant night and day and I have had a short-lived love affair with Arrid XX Dry aerosal. Soft and Dri was a particularly bad letdown. It left me smelling like sweaty baby powder. I've also tried mens deodorant and nothing seems to work. It's actually kind of funny my boyfriend jokes that I sweat more than he does, even after a basketball game. My sister in law has the same issue so I know that I am not the only one. I've heard of people getting Botox injected into their pits to make them sweat less, but it's expensive and sounds painful much like the steroid injections I got when my acne really had a mind of its own. I am proud of all the things that my body does and being very active I am now learning to appreciate my ability to sweat ;) < Previous PostNext Post >
