Exercice sweat


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

Some people sweat more than others during exercise 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 it’s really important that you stay hydrated.

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


How do I reduce exercice sweat?

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

Check out Rexona’s antiperspirants with Motionsense ™ – our patented encapsulated fragrance 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 excessively during or after exercise, check out Rexona Maximum Protection, double the strength of the best selling antiperspirant.
