Men, how to stay dry all day


No one is an island. We must all rely on the company of others in order to thrive, as it’s impossible for us to spend our lives without the company of other people. What makes this socialization even better, is when we’re with people we like, whose very essence bring a needed freshness to our day.

However, being in the company of others means it becomes much easier to catch a whiff of what they smell like. That is why it is important to avoid body odour by staying dry and fresh all day. And this is not an impossible task. Sure, everyone has experienced sweating first-hand. You’re giving a presentation at work, and you suddenly feel moisture underneath your shirt. Or maybe you’re exercising in the gym and your shirt is soaked after just a few minutes on the treadmill.

Sweating is the secretion of fluids by sweat glands called eccrine glands and apocrine glands. Our body uses these glands to regulate the temperature within us. Eccrine glands are found in most parts of our body and produce 99% water & 1% salt. Apocrine glands are found around hairy areas and produce lipids & proteins. When our body temperature rises, we sweat and the evaporation of sweat from the skin produces a cooling effect so that we stop feeling hot and uncomfortable.

Sweat itself is odourless, but when the bacteria on the skin’s surface break down the lipids & proteins produced by apocrine glands, the process causes unpleasant smell. Having a lot of sweat in hairy areas like the underarm creates a conducive environment for bacteria to continue creating the odour. NIVEA Dry Anti-perspirant Deodorant range helps to keep your underarms dry and add a fragrance to smell good for 48 hours.

To stay comfortably Dry all day, it is important to use a deodorant after bathing to reduce unnecessary sweating whilst on the go, when exercising, or performing other rigorous activities. The NIVEA Dry range has Dual Active formula that provide you with a long-lasting dry feeling to help you stay confident, stay dry and fresh.
