In this article, we are going to look at why it is important to use deodorant more carefully than most of us do. Deodorant is something we use on daily basis, just like a face cream, hence we more often than not, neglect the problems it can cause for us.
First of all, we have to understand the fact that not every one of us needs a deodorant, contrary to what deodorant companies lead you to believe.
Hence, the first job is to identify the severity of your problem. If you are someone who suffers from a little odor problem around the end of the day, then your probably don’t need a deodorant. But, if you have a job that requires you do be presentable, then a really small amount of deodorant would be enough.
Odor But No Perspiration
Now, if you are someone who has a decent odor problem, but doesn’t perspire a lot, then a natural deodorant would be enough for you. Natural deodorants are safe as well as gentle to your skin. If you a little more money to shed, you can also go for, organic deodorants, that would the prime of safety.
Odor and a little Perspiration
If you have a little perspiration problem, and it is accompanied by a little odor as well, then you might be needing something more than a natural deodorant. In that case, a normal artificial deodorant is your best bet. It doesn’t contain too much of aluminum, which can be cancer-causing, and yet, it is enough to take care of a little perspiration problem.
Odor and Lots of Perspiration
When there is too much perspiration a normal deodorant won’t be able to do the job. In that case, an antiperspirant would be required. Antiperspirants are deodorants that have a good amount of aluminum in them; 8-15%. The aluminum in the deodorant gets absorbed by your body and it sort of plugs the sweat glands, resulting in stopping of natural perspiration.
Hyperhidrosis is a condition in which you sweat many times more than normal, for such people, even an antiperspirant might fail. For them, a clinical strength deodorant can be life saver. It has the highest amount of active ingredient; 15-25%. It will solve a sweating problem of 99.99% of the world.
Since, last two types of deodorants use too much of aluminum, which is often linked to cancer, it is advised to use them only if you really need them. Secondly, aluminum blocks the sweating in a very unnaturally way, which affects the natural working of your body.
Having a little knowledge of different deodorants will help you make a better choice, that will eventually help you to remain healthy.
