Six Things You Can Do To Make Your Deodorant More Effective

Posted on

If you want to get the most out of your women's unscented natural deodorant, you should learn a little bit about application and usage habits that can improve deodorant effectiveness.

A lot of women fail to take full advantage of their deodorant because they're not using it quite right. The following are six things you can do to make your deodorant more effective.

Using moisturizer on your armpits if you experience irritation

A lot of women feel they can't use deodorant or need to use less deodorant because deodorant irritates their skin. This is a common situation for women who have sensitive skin.

In this case, it's possible to apply moisturizer cream to the skin to treat any irritation. This will make it possible to apply deodorant without discomfort. 

Apply deodorant in both the morning and the evening

Most people only apply deodorant in the morning before they go out. However, applying deodorant at night can be a good idea.

Nighttime applications allow deodorant to better penetrate the skin to reduce sweating during the daylight hours. 

Make sure you're getting deodorant over the entire armpit

If you miss any spots when you apply deodorant, your deodorant is not going to be as effective as it should. Make sure you get a good coating over your entire armpit. Also, make sure that deodorant is able to make contact with the surface of all of your armpit skin. 

Dry your armpit before applying

If your armpit is wet when you apply deodorant, the deodorant is probably not going to be able to stay on your skin. This will make it ineffective. Make sure that you're applying deodorant to skin that is completely dry so that you know your deodorant won't simply become moist and quickly evaporate away.

Wait after shaving before applying

You're going to make armpit irritation more likely if you apply deodorant right after you shave. Shaving can easily make the skin irritated. If you give your skin some time to recover after shaving, you'll probably find that your armpits are less likely to become red or sensitive due to deodorant application.

Apply deodorant onto clean skin

If you're using deodorant on a daily basis, you should make sure that you're also cleansing your armpit skin to clear away old residue before reapplying deodorant.

Make sure your skin is always clean and free from residue before applying deodorant so you know the fresh application is making contact with your skin.
