The Important Differences Between Deodorant And Antiperspirant
Most of us use either deodorant or antiperspirant on a daily basis. Before we get to the point of this article, you should first know that deodorant and antiperspirant are two completely different things. Deodorant is designed to simply mask the smell of body odor, while antiperspirant is designed to block you from sweating altogether.
Now that we have that cleared up, let’s talk about antiperspirant. Most of us apply our antiperspirant (or deodorant) as we’re getting ready in the morning. We might also apply it during the day, or after we’ve just left the gym. However, these are not, in fact, the correct times to be applying antiperspirant.
If you read the label on your antiperspirant, you might be surprised to learn that the correct time to apply antiperspirant is actually at night. You see, the main properties in antiperspirant work by blocking your sweat before you begin sweating. So when you apply the product right before you go to sleep (when you’re not sweating), your antiperspirant will be that much more effective.
If you apply this product in the morning, after your shower, or when you’re already sweating, the product won’t have had a chance to soak into your skin. So, if you use antiperspirant on a daily basis, now you know how to make your product work even harder!
