Exercise sweat

Exercising and other physical activities increase your body temperature – so your body sweats to keep you cool.

Some people might experience heavy sweat while working out and not everyone gets sweat patches. You can sweat ten times more than normal while exercising – up to 10 litres a day. That’s a lot of fluid, so if you experience sweating heavily when working out, it’s really important that you stay hydrated.

Despite what many people think, there is no weight loss or fitness benefit to sweating during exercise. In fact, more sweat doesn’t mean you’re burning more calories, it just means your body is fighting harder to cool you down.

How to reduce sweat when working out?

Stay fresh and dry by showering after exercise and make sure you dry yourself properly to prevent bacteria-causing body odour.

Wondering how to control odour with Degree®? Then you can check out Degree® antiperspirants with Motionsense® – our technology powered by specially designed microcapsules. Friction from body movement triggers the capsules to break and release bursts of freshness. So the more you move, the more it protects.

If you’re worried about sweat patches or think you’re sweating during or after exercise, check out Degree®  Clinical+ for men or Clinical Protection for women, provide three times the sweat reduction of a regular antiperspirant.
