I’ve been holding on to this little tidbit for a couple of weeks now as I wanted to really give this some old-fashioned tried and true testing. My latest grooming discovery is a certified game-changer.
A few weeks back, I came across a post on Facebook (I think?) in which someone talked about how you’re actually *supposed to wear and use deodorant (antiperspirant, more accurately). Apparently, it’s recommended that you apply it at night before bed. This allows the ingredients to absorb into your skin BEFORE you start sweating in the day, which you apparently do right after you shower. I was skeptical.
Guess what? IT. FREAKING. WORKS.
I’m a notorious pit sweater (TMI, I know), but I sweat quite a bit and if there is caffeine involved, forget it. So needless to say, I was hesitant to give this a try. But, after a couple of weeks of trials (with two different products) I’m convinced that this is the way to go.
Every day after applying at night, no matter what I did, no matter what I drank during that day, I sweated noticeably less. For simplicity’s sake, let’s say that my sweating was on a 8.5/10 (10 being constantly drenched), then with night before application I was at a consistent 3 out of 10.
But what happens when you do shower in the morning? Won’t you wash off your deodorant?
NOPE. The trick is that applying at night allows for the deodorant to actually absorb into your lovely pits. Even if you wash your arm pits the next morning, you’re still going to get a better outcome than if you applied only right after showering. AND, you can always gently reapply after showering if you’re unsure. But most days, I didn’t have to do that at all.
Do you think you’re brave enough to give this new discovery a try for yourself? Sound off in the comment section below!
