Ten Facts That Nobody Told You About Deodorant

Ten Facts That Nobody Told You About Deodorant

We wake up every morning and go through our hygiene ritual almost robotically — wash face, brush teeth, apply deodorant. We’ve certainly heard more than enough about face wash and toothbrushes, but what 消臭について? We know it smells wonderful, that it keeps us smelling good, and that we can’t live without it. But what exactly is it? How does it operate and how should it be used? We’ve compiled a list of deodorant-related questions you’ve probably never considered asking yourself (but definitely should have).

  1. Bacteria are killed by deodorant. Surprisingly, sweat has almost little odour. Instead, the stench is caused by bacteria, and deodorant contains antibacterial chemicals to combat this stink.
  2. However, it does not fully cease sweating. When your 消臭について label says “all day protection,” the FDA only requires it to cut perspiration by 20%. Meanwhile, “extra strength” deodorants are necessary to reduce perspiration by 30%.
  3. Alter your deodorant brand every few months. If you use the same deodorant on a regular basis, you may develop an immunity to it. To ensure that your deodorant is effective, change it out every six months or so.
  4. Deodorant is gender neutral. The aroma and packaging are the only differences between men’s and women’s deodorants. Aside than that, the components are nearly identical. If you ever find yourself in a situation where you need to borrow your guy’s deodorant, don’t worry; it will suffice!
  5. The yellow spots are puzzling. No one, not even deodorant manufacturers, knows where those yellow underarm stains on your shirt come from. The fundamental assumption, however, is that the aluminum-based chemicals in antiperspirants react with perspiration, skin, clothing, or laundry detergent, resulting in the stain. If you want to avoid those pesky stains, consider using a deodorant that isn’t aluminum-based.
  6. Apply デオドラントbefore going to bed. Nighttime is the greatest time to apply deodorant since it will not be clogged by sweat and will have more time to work efficiently.
  7. Not everyone requires it. It’s true, and there’s an easy method to find out if you do or don’t (warning: it is a little gross). Surprisingly, your ear wax will inform you whether or not you need deodorant. Keep your deodorant handy if your earwax is black and sticky. However, if it’s white and flaky, you’re OK without it, because dry earwax makers are deficient in a substance that the odor-causing bacteria feeds on in their armpits.
  8. Hand sanitizer can serve as a stand-in for deodorant. The alcohol in hand sanitizer eliminates the germs that creates odour in your underarms while also swiftly drying up, leaving no trace of moist underarms. However, using hand sanitizer as an antiperspirant on a regular basis will dry up your underarms, so although we don’t recommend totally replacing your deodorant with hand sanitizer, it can suffice in an emergency.
  1. Apply deodorant to dry feet. Applying deodorant on the bottoms of your feet at night will aid in the fight against foot odour and dampness the next day.
  2. And, of course, on amazing shoes. We’ve all experienced the agony of shoes that actually rub the flesh off your feet. Applying a clear deodorant to the sides of your feet will provide a barrier between your skin and the shoe, putting a stop to all of your uncomfortable peep toe issues.
