For anyone who suffers from hyperhidrosis (and if you do you know what that is) then botox might be your saviour. Injected into the affected area, (a 15-minute procedure) botox will actively reduce the amount of sweating and the effects last up to eight months. Hyperhidrosis is available at specialist clinics regionwide.
1 Kopari Beauty’s Beach Deodorant, £9.50, is a soothing, aluminium and baking soda-free blend of coconut extracts that treats sensitive underarms to the utmost care. All natural, the fresh sea-scented non-toxic active blend helps ward off the bacteria that causes odour in the first place.
2 When you begin to use a natural deodorant for the first time, your body releases built-up toxins before stabilising, making you sweaty and uncomfortable, which is why this scrub uses gently exfoliating charcoal, antioxidant-rich green tea and soothing coconut to help unclog your pores and bring skin back into balance. Underarm Detox Scrub, £19 Pacifica
3 Apply DeoDoc Pre-Shave Intimate Oil, £28, in the shower to soften coarse hair, prevent shaving rash and create a protective barrier for the skin.
