should I apply Maxim?
Maxim is very unique in that
unlike conventional antiperspirants,
it is applied at night time before
you go to bed (yes at night time).
Why is this? While you sleep, your
armpits are most dry. Maxim
will absorb into your sweat glands
while you sleep and shrink your sweat
glands. You can shower in the morning
(you could probably get away with
showering an hour after application,
but wait the whole night). In the
morning, follow your normal hygiene
routine whether that includes applying
your regular "antiperspirant" or deodorant;
it will not affect Maxim. You
should see results the first day after
application. If you don't see results,
do not worry. Continue to apply Maxim
for one week. If your skin becomes
too itchy or irritated, stop applying
and wait until it goes away, then
start applying again. You may only
be able to apply it once every couple
of days if your skin is very sensitive.
Benedryl and or cortisone can help
with itching on sensitive skin.
I apply Maxim to my face, hands and
Maxim to your hands at night time
Maxim to your face by rubbing
it in with your fingers
Maxim to your forehead by rubbing
it in with your finger tips
we have many customers who use Maxim
on their face, hands and feet.
Just use the roll-on applicator to
apply it to the desired area. For
facial application, you can apply
it to your fingers, then rub it into
your face. Just make sure you put
it on at night time before you go
to sleep. Get up in the morning and
follow your regular hygiene routine,
it won't wash off.
I be concerned about any side affects?
is worry enough. This is one question
that frequently comes up to our support
staff. Should you be concerned about
any side affects? In reality, there
is a small percentage of our customers
who do report some side affects. However,
they are pretty minor. The most common
side affect can be itching or burning,
particularly if you apply the antiperspirant
to broken or irritated skin. We recommend
to avoid itching or burning, do not
apply Maxim to irritated skin or broken
skin. Discontinue if rash occurs.
Some customers will discontinue use
if the irritation is too much. After
a few days when the irritation stops,
people will try to apply a very small
amount to a very localized area of
the axillea armpit, most often, right
in the center and they have reported
Sweating is another common side affect
that one may experience when using
Maxim. When this occurs, it is due
to the body’s natural ability to compensate
and perspire outside of the arm pit
area. The body has over 2,700 square
inches of skin on which to perspire
compared to about 6-10 square inches
under the armpit. The armpit is not
necessary for thermoregulation. So
to stop sweatig in the pores under
the armpit will not effect your health.
Those who have compensatory perspiration
may experience very mild if any during
heavy physical activity and is nothing
to worry about. Personally, the benefits
of the cessation of underarm wetness
far outweigh any compensatory perspiration
that I have experienced. The other
side affect can be underarm irritation.
Personally, very rarely I will experience
some minor itching but again, it is
a minor inconvenience and very tolerable
compared to the alternative.
or should I apply a deodorant while
Maxim is an antiperspirant that should
eliminate your hyperhidrosis, many
people do not require a deodorant.
However, some people, including myself
apply a deodorant because the armpit
is typically a breading ground for
bacteria, that's what causes the odor.
If you do apply a deodorant, try to
avoid deodorants with fragrances because
fragrances can cause further irritation
if you already have sensitive skin.
The best deodorants that I have found
tend to be sticks like with baking
soda. People also use baby powder.
