The sweltering and scorching summers demand not just sunscreens but also anti-odour and anti-sweat formulations to protect you from wetness and stench. Before you stock up on them, here’s more about how to use them correctly to keep your body fresh and odour-free all day long.
Quick tips for all-day freshness
- A deodorant is best applied immediately after a shower. For best results, hold the can 5 to 6 inches away from the body and coat in a fine spray. When using a roll-on, ensure to cover the underarm skin in a uniform coat of the deodorant.
- Deodorants are to be applied directly onto the skin. Spraying them on your clothes can often end up staining your precious tops and shirts.
- Sensitive underarm skin can get irritated from the use of regular deos. To prevent this, switch to alcohol-free products or those specially made for this skin type.
- Summers call for enhanced protection from sweat & odour. Choose deodorants that are long-lasting or spritz them from to time, as soon as you catch the faintest whiff of body odour.
