When it comes to applying deodorant, many of us do it in the morning as part of our daily routine. However, is this really the best time of day to apply deodorant? The truth is, the best time to apply your deodorant can vary depending on your lifestyle and personal needs. Here we want to explore the best times of day to apply deodorant and offer tips for ensuring you stay fresh and odour-free all day long.
First, let’s start with the basics. Deodorant is designed to neutralise the bacteria on your skin that cause body odour. Antiperspirant, on the other hand, works by blocking sweat glands to reduce the amount of sweat produced. Antiperspirant takes time to fully absorb into your skin so doesn’t begin working immediately, unlike our natural deodorant creams.
When to Apply Deodorant
If you’re using one of our natural deodorants, the best time to apply it is right after you shower – whatever time of day that happens to be. Deodorant works by neutralising the bacteria on your skin that cause body odour. By applying deodorant right after you shower, you’ll be protected against odour all day long right up until you next shower the following day.
It’s important to apply our deodorant to clean, dry skin. If you apply it to wet or damp skin, the deodorant may not adhere properly, which can reduce its effectiveness. For best results, apply deodorant after you’ve dried off completely from your shower. This will ensure that the deodorant can fully absorb into your skin and provide the maximum amount of protection against odour.
