Deodorant is an essential toiletry for most people. If you ever forget to apply deodorant in the morning, you’ll usually notice an unpleasant stench coming from your armpits at some point during the day. So it’s no wonder that almost every third person keeps deodorant at home. But you can also use it for many other purposes.
1. Prevent sweat under your breasts
Regardless of whether you wear a bra or not, the summer heat can cause many women to sweat heavily under their breasts. This not just unpleasant, it also creates the perfect breeding ground for bacteria and viruses. There it is better to prevent this sweat from forming in the first place by applying deodorant on the underside of your breasts in the morning. You can do this to many other parts of your body depending on where sweat forms most frequently on your body.
2. Remove zits
Deodorant effectively gets rid of unpleasant body odor as well as zits. Spray your blackheads and zits with deodorant and this will purify your skin. Of course, you can also use a roll-on deodorant. You should definitely make sure that your deodorant has an antiperspirant. This effect ensures that the armpits stay dry. It is also useful when combatting zits.
3. Keep sunglasses from sliding off
Nearly everyone gets annoyed when their sunglasses start to slide off your face as a result of sweat forming on the frame. You can prevent this by rubbing antiperspirant deodorant on the sunglasses. This way your sunglasses stay put where they belong.
4. Prevent hair from sticking
Many women are familiar with the following problem, which often arises on hot or humid days: After doing your hair, you go outside and right away your hair gets frizzy and starts to sticking to your body. The sweat on your hair—particularly on your forehead or on your neck—can cause your hair to appear greasy. Here antiperspirant deodorant works well too. Rub the skin around your hairline with deodorant and you won’t have to deal with this problem anymore.
5. Fit into tight jeans
Skinny jeans are extremely popular these days but there’s one problem with them. As the name “skinny” already suggests, they are cut very tight and many women have to squeeze their way into them with a lot of effort. But a woman won’t mind this annoyance particularly when it’s her favorite pair of jeans. You can avoid this hassle by drawing a line of deodorant from your upper thigh down to your ankles. From now on, you’ll be able to slide right into your skinny jeans as easily as into a pair of sweatpants.
Avoid discoloration of clothing
If you sit in a black chair with a light summer dress for a long time, your sweat will leave marks on the back eventually. But you can avoid this by rubbing on antiperspirant deodorant on your back. The deodorant ensures that you don’t sweat on your backside. This will effectively prevent your clothes from getting discolored.
7. Prevent nocturnal sweat outbreaks
Many people have been there before: You wake up in a puddle of sweat the morning after having a nightmare or sleeping through a hot summer night. Your antiperspirant deodorant will help you in this case. Just put some on your back. However, if you sweat heavily on a regularly basis, you should see a doctor. Sometimes diseases can be the cause of nocturnal sweating.
8. Prevent your feet from smelling
The same effect that deodorant has on your armpits can be used against smelly feet just as well. Feet have 250,000 sweat glands—more than any other part of the body. So you should pay special attention to their hygiene. Spray them generously with deodorant and don’t forget the soles of your feet as well as your shoes.
9. Avoid annoying blisters
Shoes that you recently bought or shoes that are too tight can quickly cause painful and unpleasant blisters on your feet. The moisture in the shoe can make things worse and help form blisters. Antiperspirant deodorant can combat this. It soaks up the disgusting sweat in your shoes or prevents it from developing at all.
10. Prevent razor burn
Many women believe it is a must to shave the hairs in the bikini zone particularly in the summer. But often ugly red bumps appear as a result: razor burn. An antiperspirant deodorant can help prevent these red bumps from appearing. Simply apply it right after shaving your bikini zone and the skin will stay smooth.
Take advantage of these useful applications of deodorant. Even if it may seem strange at first, rubbing it under your breasts, on your face or on your legs is definitely well worth it!
