Antiperspirant temporarily blocks the production of sweat to keep you dry and odor-free! Learn how to apply antiperspirant to make it most effective against sweat and smell.
A few quick swipes of antiperspirant under your arms and you’re good to go, right? Well, not exactly. Here are some of the best ways to make your antiperspirant routine more effective:
If you’re failing your midday sniff test, making the switch to nighttime showering and deodorizing might be the key to keeping your funky flora from blossoming.
Antiperspirant is designed to work before you start sweating. Though most people sweat less at night, your antiperspirant won’t effectively stop the stink if it’s applied over a layer of dried sweat in the morning. When your body produces sweat, it starts a smelly chain reaction that leads to body odor. Antiperspirant stops this chain reaction at the start.
Antiperspirant is most effective when applied to clean, dry skin. If you use it in the morning right after your shower, your skin might be too wet to absorb the formula properly. If you apply it when you're rushing out the door, your antiperspirant may not have enough time to block your sweat glands.
Antiperspirant formulas need time to soak into your pores to prevent sweat. Otherwise, it will not be as effective throughout the day. The nighttime application gives the formula enough time to properly soak into your skin and stop sweat in its tracks for the next 24 hours. Antiperspirant temporarily blocks your sweat glands to prevent sweat and is safe to use as a daily solution to sweat and stink.
Here’s how to apply antiperspirant to ensure you’re getting the best, most effective results:
