Now we don’t know about you, but in general we don’t like to get too close to vast quantities of sweat.
Not only is there the BO factor to contend with, but that horrible clammy feeling on the back of the neck just makes us all want to immediately take a cold shower.
But now a YouTube channel has come to our aid and wants to share with us just what exactly that stranger on the bus has going on in their armpit.
This microcosmic view of sweat, on someone’s fingers nonetheless, shows how tiny beads of moisture pool on our sweat glands as the ducts open.
The tiny lines you can see are called epidermal ridges, and the ducts sit on top of these ridges, meaning that sweaty palms leave handprints on surfaces (as shown in the video).
To be honest we just can’t believe how much there is.
We’re going to put on some deodorant.
