Father's Day is just around the corner, and what better way to celebrate the amazing dads in our lives than by helping them smell fresh and feel confident? 

Sweating is a natural process that both men and women experience, but men have their own unique set of self-care needs. In this guide, we'll explore the world of men's sweaty self-care and share some fun and effective products to keep them feeling (and smelling) their best!

What is Self Care and How Does Sweating Affect That?

Self care is all about taking intentional steps to prioritise your well-being, both physically and mentally. Sweating, on the other hand, is a natural bodily function that helps regulate our body temperature and eliminate toxins. However, excessive sweating can sometimes lead to discomfort and odour, which can affect our overall confidence and mental well-being.

By incorporating ‘sweaty self-care’ into your routine, you can ensure that you're giving yourself the care and attention you deserve. This not only helps you stay fresh and confident but also boosts your mood and enhances your overall quality of life!

Do Men Sweat Differently from Women?

Here's the straight-up truth: Men sweat more than women. Scientific research has uncovered some fascinating differences in sweating patterns between the sexes. While women have the same number of sweat glands as men, they produce less sweat from each gland when faced with the same physical strain (3). Before puberty, boys and girls sweat about the same amount. But once hormones kick in, men take the lead by initiating sweating earlier and producing a higher volume when active or in hot environments (1).

Men naturally have more active sweat glands and larger pores, contributing to their increased perspiration. Hormonal differences also play a role in sweat composition and odour. A Japanese study found that when comparing individuals of the same size and fitness level, men still sweat more than women. So, it's not just about fitness—it's a natural difference (2).

These findings emphasise the importance of tailoring self-care routines to address men's specific sweating needs. Understanding these unique aspects of men's sweating patterns can help guide the selection of appropriate products and strategies to keep them fresh and confident.

Products to include in his Regi‘men’:

Here are three products your dad could add to his skincare routine to help him smell fresh and feel confident:

1. Natural Deodorant

Natural Approach deodorant is specially formulated as a unisex product, free from harmful ingredients like aluminum salts, parabens, and synthetic fragrances, making it suitable for everyone. It harnesses the power of natural antibacterial agents like tea tree and cedarwood to combat odour while keeping your underarms moisturised and healthy. There’s several scents to choose from that'll make him feel like a true "bloke" without any overly "girly" fragrances including Australian Sandalwood, Peppermint, Spearmint & Tea Tree, and White Cypress and Eucalyptus. There's also a sensitive skin option if your dad has trouble finding a suitable deodorant!

2. Clay Mask 

The addition of a Bentonite Clay Mask to his skincare regime can help to draw out toxins, leaving his skin feeling fresh, smooth and clean. And another thing we love about this mask is that it can also be used as an armpit detox, which may help eliminate body odour. 

3. Bath/Foot Soak

Did you know that our feet are the sweatiest parts of our bodies? Yep it’s true, so it’s important to look after them too with our Foot Soak. Plus, we also have a range of Bath Salts for sweaty bodies that’ll not only keep him refreshed but also soothe tired and achy muscles. Your dad’s feet and body deserve this heavenly treat!

Men's sweaty self-care doesn't have to be a chore—it can be an interesting and enjoyable part of your dads daily routine. By incorporating the right products into his regi’men’, he can stay fresh, confident, and ready to take on the world. This Father's Day, why not treat your dad or the father figure in your life to some top-notch self-care products? Self care should be for everybody.
