A trick to avoid sweating
On TikTok, internet user @madamesweat revealed her secret to avoiding sweating too quickly and how to eliminate bad odours.
Your armpits are like a rainforest. It's humid, dark, and it likes to harbour bacteria. If you're someone who sweats a lot like me, it’s not even noon before those odour-causing bacteria start working.
So how can you avoid all this? Simply by using baby powder made from cornstarch or arrowroot. This can help to absorb moisture. Simply apply it gently to your armpits after using your deodorant. The powder will act as an additional antiperspirant and will prevent you from the embarrassing sensation of sweating profusely.
Internet users are delighted
Thanks to her tip, @madamesweat received a lot of positive feedback from internet users who were quick to try out this new idea:
