However, after a workout, our body works harder to do this, usually resulting in noticeable perspiration - those embarrassing rings of wetness in the underarm area of our clothes and not to mention the soggy feeling in our shoes.

By the time you're done with work, the last place you want to go is the gym; usually because you're tired and just want to go home.

If you want to fit in regular workouts, then, the only time that will work is lunchtime. But how do you do that without returning back to work looking like you just got back from the gym?

There are several simple things that people can do to cool down after a workout to feel refreshed and dry, all day, after a lunchtime workout.

"Perspiring is a vital metabolic function needed to regulate body temperature and keep us cool," dermatologist David Bank, M.D., director of The Center for Dermatology, Cosmetic and Laser Surgery in Mount Kisco, NY. "However, after a workout, our body works harder to do this, usually resulting in noticeable perspiration - those embarrassing rings of wetness in the underarm area of our clothes and not to mention the soggy feeling in our shoes."

On the night before your workout apply Certain Dri Anti-Perspirant to your underarms before you go to bed. Your pores will absorb it at night and a morning shower won't diminish its action. Sold over-the-counter, Certain Dri Antiperspirant contains 12 percent aluminum chloride, the most effective active ingredient used in prescription antiperspirants. Yet, Certain Dri Antiperspirant is water-based (vs. alcohol-based as in prescription antiperspirants), gentler on the skin and available without a doctor's prescription.

Here are few other things you can do to combat noticeable sweat and body odor after a lunchtime workout:

  •     Cool Down period of workout - time may be short during your lunch time workout but it's important to account for the cool down period. This gives the body a chance to "throw off" some heat before getting into the shower.
  •     Cool Your Core - Drink cool water or some other beverage as it's the body's internal temperature that you are trying to cool.
  •     Cool Shower -Taking a cool shower after your workout will help cool your body temperature down and wash away odor causing perspiration.
  •     Cool Your Soles: According to the new Certain Dri Feet survey*, 30 percent of U.S. adults admit to suffering from problematic foot sweat and odor. A lunchtime workout can only exasperate this problem. Certain Dri recently took perspiration control one step further, literally, and introduced new Certain Dri Feet Moisture Control Pads, which are recommended by the American Podiatric Medical Association, and Certain Dri Microsponge Powder, with a patented Microsponge® Delivery System that is triggered into action with heat, friction or moisture to release five odor fighting ingredients all day long.. The two new products can be used together to offer maximized results in controlling excessive foot perspiration and odor, helping to maintain a feeling of fresh, dry feet all day.
  •     Back up System - And for those who want added odor protection apply your favorite daily deodorant after you shower.

Harris Interactive® fielded the study on behalf of Robin Leedy & Associates from February 6-8, 2008 via its QuickQuerySM online omnibus service, interviewing a nationwide sample of 2,015 U.S. adults aged 18 years and older who are employed full/part time.
