You may have even been told that wearing deodorant or antiperspirant at night will give you longer odor protection. The logic behind this is simple. Your product is given time to absorb into your skin overnight, before you get your sweat on the next day.
Truth is, there is no need to wear deodorant to bed.
Why? Odor is only produced when there is a combination of sweat and bacteria. Your body temperature naturally drops in sleep mode and sweating is reduced. With no moisture, odor-causing bacteria does not grow and thrive in regions like your underarms and feet. Wearing deodorant at night will not help you smell any less during the day.
If you are looking for extra odor control, try some of these tips below:
- Apple Cider Vinegar: Pour this solution onto a cotton pad and apply it to your underarms after washing them with regular soap.
- Antibacterial Soap with Apple Cider Vinegar: Use our underarm bar with apple cider vinegar and sodium chloride to wash your underarms at night.
Whew, now you can rest easy tonight without worrying if you should apply deodorant before you slide into bed!
