Exercise sweat

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

Some people might experience excessive 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 excessive sweating 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 excessively 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 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.

Wondering how to control sweat with Rexona? Then you can check out Rexona’s antiperspirants with Motionsense™ – our patented sweat 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.
