Hallelujah - There's a Brand New Way To Treat Excessive Sweating JUST IN TIME

The nation's sweat glands are being tested like never before this week, and we can CONFIRM they are working.

The heatwave has us DRIPPING, and with a 2000% increase in fan purchases, we know we're not alone.

Which is why the news that there is a brand new way to treat excessive sweating was music to our ears today.

Just this week, the FDA announced that they have signed off on on Qbrexza (glycopyrronium) cloth as a safe and effective topical treatment for hyperhidrosis - a condition where you sweat more than normal.

Unlike dodgy chemical blockers, the wipes don't plug the sweat glands, but actually inhibit their sweat production, so it's much safer than other products on the market at the moment.

Dermatologist Joshua Zeichner, M.D. director of cosmetic and clinical research at Mount Sinai Hospital said of the wipes:

“Antiperspirants work by preventing wetness from reaching the surface of the skin.

“Their active ingredient is an aluminum salt that creates a plug within the sweat gland that physically blocks the sweat.”

Qbrexza, however, “decreases the activity of the sweat gland itself, so you’ll have less sweat to begin with."

The wipes should be available in pharmacies from October 1 2018 - so we have a few more *moist* months ahead of us unfortunately.
