Body hygiene for a man is not only a complete cleansing of the epidermis but also the use of special products that block the smell of sweat. Modern deodorants for men have been specially developed for this purpose. They often function as 2 in 1, 3 in 1 or more, depending on the active ingredients in the composition. They stop the reproduction of bacteria in the armpit area, moisturize the skin, soothe it, flavour it, etc.
Types of deodorants for men
Several types of consistencies represent these hygiene products:
gel and cream sticks;
In addition to standard hygiene products, you can also find special scented ones, which are produced by fashion houses as an addition to the aroma of your favourite perfumes. This makes the sound of the composition last longer.
How they differ from antiperspirants
Most buyers do not attach importance to what is written on the label of the bottle. But this is critical because deodorants for men and antiperspirants have different directions of action. So, the first one:
Masks the smell without clogging the sweat glands;
Works for a short time (less than 24 hours);
Can be applied twice (or more times) a day;
Does not contain aluminium and other ingredients harmful to the human body.
Antiperspirant, in turn:
Blocks the sweat glands
Masks the smell;
Works throughout the day;
Contains zinc and aluminium harmful to the body;
Should not be applied to dirty skin.
As you can see, both types of items have both pros and cons. Moreover, their effect depends on the individual characteristics of the consumer's organism.
If you sweat excessively and leave wet spots on your clothes, which robs you of confidence, it is better to buy an antiperspirant. It provides effective protection against sweat throughout the day. It can be applied no more than twice a day to damp epidermis.
How to choose
When choosing deodorants for men, you should focus on the format because even with the same principle of action, the products have differences in use.
Thus, an antiperspirant stick (also called a "pencil") has a soft texture, comfortable contact with the skin and dries relatively quickly on it. The substances from the sticks create a membrane that provides high-quality protection. But some of them leave marks on clothes.
Roll-on deodorants for men are suitable for all skin types but dry a little longer than sticks and sprays.
In turn, the spray dries quickly, provides a good drying effect, but is quickly consumed. To avoid excessive dryness of the epidermis and unwanted irritations, opt for compositions without alcohol and triclosan.
To tame increased sweating during the day and keep your clothes dry, choose an antibacterial antiperspirant roll-on or stick. For skin with normal sweating, you can use a spray.
Perfumed deodorants for men are best used with perfumes from the same series. This will prevent smells from interrupting each other, causing dissonance. In MAKEUP online store, you can buy the item that will suit you best.
