There are very few things less attractive than unslightly sweat stains on your blouse/shirt (unless you are at a gym or similar settings), and body odour often tops the list of pet peeves of the general public. It goes without saying that a deodorant is considered an essential for people living in hot climate. But did you know that there is also a difference between normal heat sweating and stress sweating?
Let me give you an example: You received a phone call from a guy that you have had a crush on for a while asking you out for a date. Or, you are about to walk into the interview room for a job that you really wants to get. Can you picture it in your head yet? Your heart beats a little faster, there are butterflies in your tummy, and most likely you would start to sweat a little bit more too. And this, my friend, is called stress sweating. Let me break it down for you:
Heat Sweating– This is considered normal sweating as a result of physical activities, your body’s’ attempts to regulate its temperature, occurs all over the body .This type of sweating builds up over time.
Stress Sweating– Caused by Hormones in stressful situations, triggered by flight or fight reaction. Leading to stronger body odor, primarily occurs in armpits, forehead and palms at a stronger level.
Introducing the NIVEA Stress Protect Deodorant, specifically designed and tested to combat stress sweating.
Nivea has been dominating the deodorant market for many years, and this time, it has successfully identified an unique antibacterial formula that combines three ingredients: Stress Protect Actives, avocado oil and a zinc complex to that provides extra protection even in stressful situations and safeguards against underarm wetness and body odor.
The deodorant is available for both men and women, and the formulas are proven to minimize sweat by up to 85% and significantly reduce the formation of body odor. It’s also comforting (especially for us ladies) to know that the formula avocado oil cares mildly for the underarm skin. Skin tolerance has been dermatologically proven and the formula does not alcohol or colorants.
So far, Nivea Stress Protect is first of its kind to be launched in the market, and you can choose to use either the Spray, Roll-on or Stick (only 2 of above are featured here though), whichever rocks your boat.
Oh, here’s a rather entertaining video demonstrating stress sweating.
The first dude looks so much like someone I know!
I received a set of the male and female deodorant and gave them a road test. Well, the male ones for Frank anyway. While the Male version has a stronger “manly” scent, I do like the lingering floral scent of the women deodorant. The effect is definitely long lasting (in fact it is supposed to last up to 48 hours!). The roll on does take a little longer to dry as compared to the spray though. The best thing about this product is that it doesn’t leave a white mark on my clothes, as the deodorant leaves a sheer coating on my skin that is barely visible. It definitely feels gentle on my skin. Perfect! And of course, I won’t be the only one reaping the benefits. *wink*
