We all sweat differently. For those who sweat only a little, you may not need more than a perfumed deodorant to conceal any sweat odours in the afternoon. For those of us who sweat more, an antiperspirant is the way to go. An antiperspirant reduces how much you actually sweat. This is done with the help of aluminium salts, which both reduce sweat production and are antibacterial. It's the bacteria that makes sweat smell. Sweat itself is actually odourless.
Here are some tips on how to get rid of sweat smell in clothes.
If you think that deodorants and antiperspirants make your armpits itchy, the likely culprit of this is the perfume in the product. Try replacing the deodorant you use with a perfume-free one. Even the alcohol in deodorants can make sensitive skin itch, so if a fragrance-free deodorant makes no difference – then try one without alcohol.
Cream, roll-on, crystals, spray – there are many different kinds of deodorants to choose from.
