Hyperhidrosis, heat, humidity and hormones! Can we find a balance for happiness? Review of Klima products0September 13th, 2010Site News
I have been so down in the dumps the last few weeks since returning back from my trip home in England. I have not been there in almost 10 years and growing up in a small South East Village as a child I could not wait to leave.
However now being in my late 30′s I see England in a whole different way. While home I enjoyed the cooler weather and cooler evenings, the humidity got to me a few days but nothing like living here in South Texas USA. How I long for cooler pastures which one day will be, but for now I have to make the most of what I have and the daily battle with HPYERHIDROSIS.
Most days I wake up wet! My head, neck, chest and back will be sweaty, I have a ceiling fan constantly blowing and two stationary fans in the bedroom blowing on me! I know the experts say you don’t sweat at night but I know I do and there is a condition called SLEEP HYPERHIDROSIS. I may be already going through the beginning of MENOPAUSE which can make sweating worse night or day? I find that when it’s that awful time again my sweating gets worse. I think hormones are to blame for the added heat and sweat each month.
Beverly swears by the CHILLOW ( pillow), you can find these in our VSB SHOP. I am thinking of investing in one as she claims they keep your head cool and she is sweat free.
I then help the girls get ready for school and drink an iced coffee! I can no longer drink HOT drinks, these speed me up and I just pour of sweat!! I am just miserable regardless if I’m in air conditioned or outside.
After seeing my girls off to school I start cleaning up, may be a quick sweep, dust, clean bathrooms the normal daily chores and after about 20 min into this I will start dripping from the back of my head, (hairline) then the sweat moves down my chest, armpits, groin, and feet will be soaked. I also suffer with facial and chest blushing, looks like I have been out in the sun all day!
The things we face daily, it can cripple our EMOTIONS, SELF CONFIDENCE AND SELF ESTEEM, regardless if your a Male or Female.
After the fight of my morning sweat I then take a cooler shower. This sets my body into spastic mode and I sweat for about another 30-45+ minutes. I have to cool myself down even before I think of makeup and hair. I also take a fan into the bathroom with me just to keep me cooler while applying makeup. Do you find that shampoos, body washes, creams, lotions make you sweat more too?
Being a WOMAN can be a night mare living with HH, as I said it takes me 45+ minutes to cool down before applying any facial creams or makeup. When I am applying cream, this will also set me off and my face will start sweating! Makes applying makeup impossible!
I found a solution to this, my good friend at Klima sent me his new product, www.klimadeodorant.com The product is called Facade and you apply it once a day for the first week, (follow instructions there after) and let it dry and after about 2 weeks I started to notice a reduction in my under eye sweating, nose and lip! Making applying daily makeup easier.
Another thing I noticed was how this product was making my skin feel so smooth and silky. I also noticed it was helping me with my mild acne and open pores. Then after a few weeks I noticed I had less visible wrinkles
This product is wonderful and recommend it to anyone who has facial sweating. It is aluminum free and very gentle on your face, not like the abrasive prescription products that burn and irritate your skin. I have not applied this product to my forehead yet as I had Facial and cranial Botox last June, once it wears off I will be using it.
Also I am excited for my Daughter who has been using Klima Facade on her face, remember it is Aluminum Free so no chemicals being used on someone so young, (13) She noticed after 1 week it was reducing her sweat and after 3 weeks her facial sweating had been reduced by 70% Another advantage to this great product was it cleared up her acne. She was so happy one day and lifted her bangs up and said, “Look, my Zits are going!” I was so happy and said it was probably the Facade that dried them up.
So now I have my makeup on and styling my hair. I then proceed into my wardrobe and stare at my CLOTHING, what to wear? I have to think of what the HUMIDITY and HEAT are going to be?
On a normal day it is HOT here regardless.! Most of my wardrobe consists of black and patterned clothing. It hides a multitude of sins, SWEATING being one of them. I longed to wear colours instead of patterns or dark or black as my AUXILIARY (armpit sweating) was just so bad. I would leave small plate size rings around my armpits, showing through my CLOTHING and EMBARRASSING me, I also left SALT lines on my darker clothing and shoes.
I have been trying klima products for this too and have seen remarkable results! I have been using Hyper Dri another Aluminum Free product in the evening and Bone Dri in the day to keep me sweat free and smelling clean. I used these a few weeks before I went to the UK and while I was in the UK and I did not have an embarrassing problem with sweat marks or salt marks.
I also used their sure foot spray as I tend to ruin shoes, flip flops and slippers on a regular basics, also I tend to have smelly feet from the bacteria. This spray worked really well and you can shower and not have to worry about reapplying it. It did make my feet dry at first but with a good moisturizer you can avoid this. I am able to wear flip flops and not have to worry about ruining them or the smelly bacteria.
After choosing an outfit to wear and finally cooling down I will work on VSB or go out with girl friends and family. I tend to avoid being out in the heat any time I can. I go from an AC van to an AC store.
How we miss the little things in life living with this. I’d love to go for a walk, picnic but can’t in this constant heat. I long for the few weeks of winter here in South Texas. I feel normal for a while and can enjoy the outdoors.
Once kids are home I then cook dinner, this alone makes me sweaty! I tend to bring one of my fans and have that blowing on me. I have to fight for this with my brown poodle, Yogi who suffers too Who said pets don’t suffer, he takes over the fan and ears are flapping.
I find that after eating within minutes I start sweating again, this is caused by GUSTATORY sweating, spices, heat, foods that you digest.
Are we really ever FREE from SWEATING? If you look at your every day life? I know I’m not.
