The One Thing You Should Never Do When Applying Deodorant

June 13, 2016 by India Unger-Harquail

Your deodorant routine probably goes something like this: wake up, shower, get dressed, then put on deodorant. Right? Well we hate to break it to you, but you’re doing it all wrong. The one thing you should never do when applying deodorant is put it on in the morning.

There are a couple reasons why this is so important. First, it takes time for deodorant and antiperspirant to absorb into your skin. In order for the product to plug your pores and close sweat ducts, you’ll have to wait a while. The evening is ideal because your body cools down as you sleep.

Worried your morning shower will rinse off the deodorant you put on the night before? Don’t! It will all be absorbed and won’t wash off.

Another important tip: your body actively sweats the most in the morning, which means that when you apply deodorant in the morning it’s probably just sliding right off before it gets a chance to absorb and do its job. Stick to applying your deodorant at night, and it’ll probably last more than 24 hours–a big benefit in the middle of summer.
