Why do we sweat? A natural mechanism
Perspiration is an indispensable mechanism for the welfare of the organism that performs two important functions: removes debris accumulated in the body and maintains the internal body temperature at 37 degrees. Even if the sweat arises odorless, in contact with the air, alters the bacterial flora cutenea, it deteriorates turning into bad odor.
How to choose the deodorant
The deodorant products are divided into two large families: the anti-bacterial and anti-perspirant. The most commonly used are those that reduce their body odor with a bactericidal action combined with action “captures smell”. It is sweet formulas with aqueous texture or in milk suitable for all skin types, do not contain alcohol or irritants. The anti-perspirant, instead, usually in roll-on or tubes act at the origin, braking the diffusion of sweat. They are suitable for sports or for those who have a particularly heavy perspiration and are very valid to avoid the unsightly stains on clothing located in the armpits.
Better to choose a scented deodorant or not?
The fragrance is not really important, what is important is that it contains an effective bactericide formula mind. Of course, in summer, you can use a deodorant in line with your favorite fragrance or with a light bouquet and replace it with the eau de toilette a halo more discreet.
Deodorant can be used on the skin not just shower “fresh”?
Because the deodorizing effect is really effective it is essential that it is applied to the problem areas previously washed with soap and water and dry completely. Spray deodorant scented armpit rumor that causes a very unpleasant olfactory mix.
Deodorant with alcohol or without?
Most deodorant without alcohol evaporates only serves to give a temporary feeling of freshness, but does not pursue any bactericidal function. You should always use deodorant alcohol free or very low percentage, especially in summer when the sweat increases due to the temperature and makes all skin types (also the strongest) easy prey to irritation.
Just one deodorant for the whole body?
Absolutely no. Each formula has its specific function and common sense suggests that a deodorant under the arms does not have the same result if sprayed on the feet or on the hair. Use one at random, at best, it would be useless. At worst, however, the deodorant may cause serious irritation.
Choose cotton and linen
Focuses on light colors that give light to the face and reflect the sun’s rays. Shirts, tee shirts, tank tops and viscose mesh or mineral fibers have the disadvantage of holding the odorous molecules of sweat. So put in the account to wear them only when they are clean of laundry. The same goes for the tights or undergarments in synthetic fabrics that require daily washing.
Beyond the areas “under”
They are particularly vulnerable to bacteria (think about it when you sit on the bus without socks and bare legs on the seat? Lurking there are candidiasis, papilloma virus, and more). So itima hygiene with a specific detergent, attention to hygiene attitudes relaxed and above all a deo for long lasting disinfectant designed just for those areas. For a truly bactericidal effect, vaporizzalo also on the slip. And keep on hand of disinfectant wipes from her purse.
