Dove Clear Tone Anti-Perspirant/Deodorant ($6, drugstores)
The Claim
It uses calendula and other moisturizers to reduce dark marks caused by inflammation or dryness.
Tester Says

The Product
Urban Decay De-Slick Oil-Control Makeup Setting Spray ($29,

Secret Clinical Strength Waterproof works the best for me, and I've tried everything with help from the International Hyperhidrosis Society. Summer Soles are a great product for absorbing sweat in your shoes, too. For a personal account of life with hyperhidrosis, visit my blog at

As far as deotorant/antiperspirant you can use effective one that doesn't have aluminum in it. There's a whole lot more safer effective products to choose from too. Go to to learn more about it.
