Boxing: Wilder works up a sweat as he targets return
There can be many causes of excessive sweating, whether it be hyperhidrosis, menopause, a side effect from medication, nerves, or even just hot weather. No matter what’s causing the perspiration, one thing is for sure – you want it to stop. Feeling as though you’re overly sweaty can make you feel less confident, especially if your sweat often leaves marks on your clothes. One of the most infuriating parts about sweating is often the more you worry about it the more you sweat, creating a vicious, frustrating cycle that’s hard to break. As we come into a summer of eased lockdown restrictions, the warmer weather and rusty social skills will likely lead to some sweat-inducing situations that you’ll want to be prepared for, and these six antiperspirant deodorants with clinical strength can help you stay dry and confident all day long.
7 of the most powerful antiperspirants in the UK
Perspi-Guard Maximum Strength Antiperspirant Deodorant
4.3 stars from 2,732 ratings
This clinically proven antiperspirant deodorant has a highly concentrated formula that reduces sweat production for six days after one application.
Rather than using it daily, you only have to pop this deodorant on once or twice a week before bed in order to reap the benefits – so one spray can last up to five months.
“I love it. A single application lasts two to three days for me. The summer in the UK has been particularly intolerable for someone who has hyperhidrosis secondary to medication. I tried undershirts with padded armpits, wearing white only, and several other non-aluminium chloride antiperspirants. It would never stop me from feeling sweaty, which only serves to make you anxious and thus sweat more! I was very sceptical about the promises made by this brand, but truly it has made a huge difference to my day-to-day comfort”.
Perspirex Extra Strength Antiperspirant Roll-on

After applying once in the evening, this extra-strong deodorant keeps working its magic for up to five days so you have long-lasting protection from sweat and odour.

“I’ve suffered from excessive underarm sweating for many years and then boom I’ve used this for two nights and the results are fabulous! Can’t believe I’ve suffered for so long when there was this out there!”.

“I never thought anything would help me get my sweating under control and it can be so embarrassing. I’m a student nurse so especially in my light grey uniform, being in hot wards can be especially bad for sweating but with this product, absolutely no sweating at all! If you have a problem with excessive sweating then this product is 100% worth trying – I had been struggling for years until buying this!”.

4.6 stars from 1,849 ratings
This clinical strength deodorant goes on dry, absorbing odour while releasing a scent that ensures you smell fresh and clean.
The formula remains effective for up to 48 hours after application, perfect for those with busy lifestyles that don’t have the time to apply deodorant multiple times a day.
“I have struggled for years with sweating and odour. I tried multiple deodorants and antiperspirants but nothing has worked. I decided I would try this and was not disappointed! Since using this the past few weeks I barely sweat anymore and there is next to no odour. I find it works best when put on before bed and it lasts the whole of the next day without needing reapplication. I would highly recommend this for anyone who has issues with excessive sweating and will definitely be purchasing again”.

The SweatBlock antiperspirant wipes help you live more confidently with their extra-strong formula,
Each wipes provides up to seven days of protection per use, and can be used to treat hyperhidrosis, nervous sweating, hormonal sweating, and sweating from exercise.
“This is great. I’m a performer and always sweat profusely on stage, particularly on my face. Using these wipes made so much difference. I was hesitant to buy them because they’re a bit expensive, but I’m glad I went for them. When I first use them it makes my skin a little bit tingly and they don’t smell that nice, but after that, there were no side effects”.
Odaban Antiperspirant Deodorant Spray
4.3 stars from 1,872 ratings
Free from perfumes and allergens, this gentle yet powerful deodorant helps to reduce sweat stains on your clothes by keeping you dry all day long.
“This is the ultimate deodorant. I’ve been using it for years and you won’t find any better. The scent isn’t too good but as you put it on at night and wash it off the next morning it doesn’t matter. It may seem expensive but you use very little at a time and only every few days or once a week”.
Driclor Antiperspirant Roll On Applicator
4.6 stars from 3,317 ratings
If you’re someone who struggles to control their sweating on the day to day, this potent antiperspirant will help you get your perspiration under control for good.
The antiperspirant works to reduce excessive sweating over time, and after one to two weeks or regularly applying the roll-on you should be able to notice a significant improvement.
“This product is amazing. I’m not one to leave reviews but I’m so impressed by this I had to. My whole wardrobe is practically black due to suffering from wet marks under my arms every day – even in the winter. This product was recommended to me and I decided to give it a go. I put it on the first night, washed it off the following morning and used my normal antiperspirant. I stayed dry all day. In fact, I’ve been using this for 5 days now and I have had no sweat patches whatsoever! I didn’t put it on one evening (as I had just shaved) and I was a little anxious I would go back to sweaty underarms the following day but nope there was no need to worry at all!”.
