of the agency. Produced consistently in the human an average of 12 gr./timeâ€“ and appears sometimes in the form of
the quiet breathing and sometimes in the form of perspiration.
As a protective, cooling and excretory means, sweat is the regulator of the internal temperature of our body. To secrete, are activated around 2.5 million sweat glands, which are distributed in the whole body. Of these, 25 are located in the underarm area.
So the sweat and other glands in the first years of life produce a clean, odorless liquid. Later, however, and with the end of puberty changes the chemical composition.
What you need to know:
Why we sweat more in the summer?
The main role of sweat is to maintain the temperature of our body at 37 degrees Celsius. So, when the outdoor temperature rises, the sweat is increased. On the contrary, when it is cold, is reduced.
Some claim that you don’t sweat. Is this true?
No. Besides, something like this would be very detrimental to their health. Fortunately, we all sweat, but to a different degree, not only to regulate our temperature, but for it to be removed so a large number of toxins that the body produces. Some eliminates 12 grams. sweat/hour, while others, under the same conditions, sweat five or six times less.
How is created the familiar smell of summer sweat?
Once the sweat produced is odourless and sterile. However, because it is an excellent environment for the bacteria found on the skin, after once they come in contact with him decompose the proteins of the skin, producing that characteristic smell of the summer sweat, the intensity usually depends on the number of bacteria in the area.
Some fabrics cause more sweating than others?
No. Some fabrics, however, can prevent the evaporation of sweat, something that gives the impression of increased sweating. This is what happens in the case of fabrics of synthetic or artificial fibers and does not apply to the cotton and the linen that are of plant origin. Of course, lately, a lot of fabrics made from “microfiber”, though these are not of natural origin, they remain very cool even if it’s too hot.
What is the difference between an antiperspirant and a deodorant product?
The first prevents the excretion of sweat by 70%. Prepared on the basis of salts of aluminum and allows the deceleration of the flow of sweat, but without the interrupts. A main disadvantage is that it sometimes causes irritation.
A deodorant works differently. The bactericidal deodorants, that are used the most, kill the bacteria, thus preventing the production of odour.
It is recommended that the hair removal on armpits?
Yes, for two reasons. Because the hair of the one holding the odors and on the other hand maintain in this region, heat and moisture, which favours the growth of bacteria.
