The Not-So-Hot Truth About Sweat Rash

And 3 Proven Ways to Kick it to the Curb

Summer. It initiates instant mental images of sun-soaked scenes, clear blue seas, and even clearer skin. But in reality, the truth is a little less…rose-tinted. The sweet dream of summer is all too often tainted by the infamous villain that is sweat rash, cropping up slowly until you’re left with an embarrassingly red and raw presence at the beach.

 

Thankfully, this polluted picture doesn’t have to be your narrative this summer. There are ways of taking sweat rash by the horns and taming the beast, but to do so, first thing’s first – you need to understand how and where it starts in the first place.

 

What is Sweat Rash?

Otherwise known as candida intertrigo, sweat rash is a painful form of skin inflammation caused by bacteria and yeast. It’s most common in areas of the skin where moisture can easily become trapped, like under the arms or between the thighs. Sweat rash is also, obviously, more common in warmer, more humid climates. Like ours.

 

What are the Symptoms of Sweat Rash?

Sweat rash isn’t always a small red irritation on the surface of your skin. Often, it causes scaling on the periphery, broken skin, blisters, and a stinging and/or burning sensation that no mental image of summer can help you ignore. If you don’t fall into a high-risk category – like being pregnant, overweight, or elderly – then you can take control of your sweat rash by simply investing in a high-quality sweat rash cream designed to do exactly what it claims. Stop sweat rash in its tracks.

 

What are the Best Creams for Sweat Rash?

When shopping for a sweat rash cream that works, you need to look for something that functions as both an effective antiperspirant and a soothing emollient – and that’s where Neat Feat’s 3B Action Cream comes in. Formulated to target the root cause of sweat rash, this tried, tested, and proven formula prevents sweating in crucial areas while encouraging healthy hydration and, most importantly, preventing the sweat rash from getting worse.

Neat Feat’s 3B Action Cream is safe and effective for the whole family, so you can finally win the war against sweat rash and experience life on the other side of red, raw, and inflamed skin.

Let’s Talk About Swim Chafing

Logically, the solution to chafing would be moisture. Right? Not always.

 

Swimming is one of the most notorious culprits behind the dreaded chafe, because abrasive salt water and sensitive skin are rarely a recipe for success. If you’ve ever experienced painful chafing after a dip in the water, then you’ll know exactly what we’re talking about. Swimmers are no strangers to the scars of escapades past, but you don’t need to be an Olympic athlete to be a victim of the notorious swim chafe.

 

Thankfully, there are ways to treat it and prevent it from getting worse. Here’s how.

1: Choose the Right Swimwear

If you plan on spending a good few hours immersed in the waves, be sure to invest in a quality bathing suit or anti-chafing wet suit. Ill-fitting counterparts can cause serious issues for more serious swimmers who overreach in freestyle strokes for example.

2: Shave

If you’ll be out on the open water, make sure that any skin in areas vulnerable to chafing are as close to hairless as possible. This will make sure that there’s nothing extra hanging about that could make pre-existing chafed skin even worse.

3: Lubricate

When it comes to keeping chafe points moisturized, it’s hard to over-lubricate. You’ll want to invest in a quality chafing cream that’s approved by doctors and dermatologists. Coat the affected area(s) generously. Note that open chafe wounds are a different story and must be kept clean and dry and examined by a doctor. For closed chafe wounds, consider something the likes of Neat Feat’s 3B Action Cream. Designed to stop chafing at the source, the 3B Action Cream for Chafing doubles as both an effective antiperspirant and a soothing emollient.

Winning the war against chafing is all about giving your skin a chance to heal. 3B Action is developed by New Zealand’s leading doctors, and with a cream like this, a little goes a long way. Shop Neat Feat today before stock runs out!

Hyperhidrosis 101

Everything You Need to Know  

Hyperhidrosis sounds like it should be the name of some mystical sea creature or obscure species of fish. Unfortunately, it’s not that cool. Hyperhidrosis is also known as excessive sweating. This condition affects thousands of people of all different ages around the world. It’s identified as constant or excessive sweating of the face, feet, hands, or body, and can become a serious issue when it starts causing infections or skin conditions due to too much moisture.  

 

Do You Have Hyperhidrosis?  

Then you know how embarrassing and inconvenient it is to constantly have to change your clothes, apply antiperspirant, and worry about the next time you need to shake someone’s hand. Luckily, we’ve spent countless hours developing the perfect range of products to help you stop sweating the small stuff. This range contains a wide range of different products that are specially created for different parts of your skin and body.

Don’t sweat summer! Beat head-to-toe perspiration the easy way

The warm sun on your skin, days at the beach with the grandkids, Christmas gatherings, meals outside on the deck listening to the birds chirping – these are all things to love about the summer months.

But there’s one downside to the hot weather: perspiration. Any amount of gardening, running around with the grandkids or even walking can leave your underarms wet with sweat. And no matter how much fanning you do or cold water you drink to stay hydrated, perspiration is a given as the temperatures rise.

Sometimes even the simple act of getting dressed or blow-drying your hair can make you drip bucketloads (particularly in northern Australia, where the humidity is extreme). But it’s really not surprising given that everyone has between two and five million sweat glands across their body. The real problem is when your skin becomes irritated by the sweat, causing a rash or chafing.

But thankfully, there are products available to help. Neat Feat, for example, has developed the world’s first anti-perspirant for feet, along with a complementary range of highly effective products to help prevent sweating from head to toe. The items were formulated by New Zealand physicians to not only assist with perspiration but also help with the associated issues caused by sweating.

From rashes and chafing to clammy hands, facial sweat, foot odour and bacterial and fungal infections, these products could keep your summer substantially free of perspiration.

Body 

Even though we might not want to admit it, we can sweat literally anywhere on our bodies, from our feet right up to our head (yes, even between our buttocks, our legs and beneath the breasts). But you probably don’t want to go rolling your normal deodorant around everywhere!

Fortunately, there is a special antiperspirant that was designed specifically to help solve this problem. The soothing cream incorporates an effective antiperspirant in an emollient to reduce the amount of sweat produced and is perfect for those areas where skin surfaces rub together and become inflamed.

As a bonus, it also helps to prevent fungal infections such as tinea or intertrigo (a rash that usually appears between folds of the skin), which tend to occur in those warm, moist areas of the body.

Face 

You know it’s getting hot when the sweat starts dripping down your face. First it’s the little beads on your top lip and then as the temperature rises you start to feel dampness on your eyelids too. For those who live in colder parts of the world, this probably seems bizarre, but in Australia it’s definitely not uncommon.

That’s why Neat Feat created a product specifically for your face. The soothing gel formulation evaporates rapidly from the surface of the skin after being applied, leaving behind an active, antiperspirant ingredient that helps prevent sweating in the first place. It’s best applied before makeup (it also acts as a great primer!), moisturiser or sunscreen, so the product remains on the skin for longer. All you have to do is spread it over your forehead, upper lip and back of the neck, making sure to avoid the eye area and the scalp.

Hands  

Just like the rest of the body, your palms can sweat. Often this is when you’re in a stressful situation, but it can occur simply because you’re too hot. And when your hands feel wet and slippery, playing any kind of activity – such as golf, tennis or riding a bike – can become quite difficult.

The Hand Saver was created to solve this problem, with the antiperspirant ingredient helping to prevent excessive perspiration of the hands. Incredibly, it leaves the hands dry for up to three hours – even after they’ve been washed (which, let’s face it, we’ve been doing a lot of lately!).

Feet

While we tend to notice our underarm sweat the most, our feet actually do a lot of perspiring throughout the day. In fact, most adults will sweat about a quarter of a cup into their socks or shoes a day, so it’s really no wonder why so many people suffer from stinky feet!

But there is a deodorant you can use on your feet to help prevent not only excessive foot perspiration, but eliminate odour and minimise the risk of contracting nasty foot infections that are more prevalent in summer, such as tinea. The deodorant contains moisturising agents that help prevent feet from cracking, while the aluminium (the most effective antiperspirant available) assists with the sweating issue. Simply roll it onto your feet and you’re good to go!
