10 Places to Put Deodorant Other Than Your Armpits
While our armpits are definitely the sweatiest places on our bodies, that's not the only place we need protection. Have you heard of something called boob sweat? The average perspiration-stopping stick can actually reduce friction, stop perspiration, and kill bacteria from head to toe (especially toes). Keep reading to discover 10 other spots to apply deodorant before the summer temperatures hit a peak. If you're going to slather your skin with product, we recommend using a natural formula that is aluminum free.
Putting a stick of deodorant on your face may sound ridiculous, but the powdery ingredients can help mattify the face. Also, some natural deodorants include mineral salts (like crystal) that can help dry out zits and bacteria-fighting ingredients that can also curb breakouts.
New shoes giving you blisters? Then pull out the antiperspirant. Rubbing a rollerball around your heels and along the sides of your feet creates a layer of lubricant that stops friction, so you won't have to resort to Band-Aids.
Around Your Hairline
This performer trick to keep sweat out of the eyes is a must have for frequent runners and onstage performers. Just rub an antiperspirant around the hairline and along your neck to keep your face moisture free. Warning: use an invisible formula instead of a white stick to avoid flakes.
Your Bikini Line
Itchy, red bumps around the bikini line are something you want to avoid during your next vacation. One solution you already own in your bathroom is unscented deodorant. Apply to the area around your panty line to avoid ingrown hairs and razor burn. Just make sure to use a different stick than the one you use under your arms.
Your Inner Thighs
While we're superexcited for shorts season, one thing we aren't looking forward to is chafing. Rubbing between the thighs can cause sweating, redness, and irritated bumps. Swipe a touch of deodorant on the inner-thigh area to reduce friction.
We have mastered the shimmy dance to slide into a pair of jeans, but if that still won't work, coat your legs in slippery deodorant to get the fabric to slip right on. We expect there will be tons more jeggings and skinny jeans in your wardrobe from now on.
Behind Your Knees
Cyclists can especially relate to this sweaty skin issue. Perspiration pooling behind the knees can easily be solved with a spritz of spray deodorant or a rub of your favorite stick.
The Bottom of Your Feet
Just like with your underarms, you can use antiperspirant on your feet to curb sweat and stink. Apply to the bottoms of the feet and allow to dry before putting on your favorite pair of shoes.
Under Your Breasts
As the temperatures rises, breast sweat increases (it's a fact). You can prevent perspiration stains from soaking into your favorite sundress by spritzing the area underneath your boobs with a spray deodorant.
On Your Hands
Got clammy hands? Deodorant could be the solution. Now, we know you don't want to apply antiperspirant to your palms during the day. So, we suggest rubbing a sweat-stopping product before bed. It will help curb watery handshakes throughout the day.
