Sweating – it’s something that we all do. But apparently, simply wearing antiperspirant isn’t enough – it’s when you apply it. And while you probably do it in the morning before you get dressed, come to find out that’s wrong!
Antiperspirant does just that – it prevents you from sweating. And because your body temperature drops at night while you’re sleeping, you’ll sweat less than during the day. And applying it at night gives your skin more time to absorb the active ingredient, usually aluminum.
Most are designed to work for 24 to 48 hours, so you should still be good for the next day.
And if you’re worried about showering in the morning, you still can – because you’ve absorbed it, it won’t wash off.
