Deodorant is included in summer body care. However, some myths are in people's minds when using deodorant. Whose real truth…
The problem that has to be faced the most as soon as the summer season comes, is the bad odor coming from the body. Perspiration due to rising heat causes physical odor. This can spoil both your mood and image. Normally, women use perfume or deodorant to deal with this odor coming from the body. It is also important that you include it in your summer body care. There is no doubt that it gives you many benefits, although there are many questions and myths in the minds of women regarding its use. So, today we are telling you about some popular myths and their truth about deodorant-
Myth-1: using deodorant makes the skin of the underarm dark
Truth- This is one of the most common myths about the use of deodorant. Many people think and believe that using deodorant has darkened their underarm skin. While the truth is that dark underarms can be caused by shaving, scratching, and your skin condition known as acanthosis nigricans. In some cases, dark underarm patches may also be genetic. In addition, deep skin tone may be more likely to occur when hyperpigmentation develops in the underarm area. But your deodorant is not responsible for this. However, you should try to choose a deodorant that has moisturizing properties so that it gives an extra benefit to your skin.
Myth-2: Deodorant makes skin sticky.
Truth- Many women complain that deodorant, especially after applying roll-on, makes them feel sticky on their underarms. However, you will be surprised to know that it has nothing to do with your deodorant, but it depends on how much you apply for it. You can roll it on your deodorant about 2-3 times and let it dry. But if you use it too much, your underarm will feel sticky even after it dries for a few minutes.
Myth-3: Applying deodorant after shaving causes a burning sensation
Truth- Shaving is the quickest and easiest way to get rid of underarm hair. However, applying the deodorant after shaving several times can sometimes cause a burning sensation. But you know why this happens. The underarm skin is quite delicately, and while shaving, the top of the protective layer along with the hair is removed, which makes it sensitive. However, if you wish, you can easily get rid of this stinging sensation, it is just important that you use shaving foam or gel before shaving. After shaving, you should use such deodorant which does not contain alcohol.
Myth-4: Deodorant can stain clothes
Truth- Fed patches or discolored patches are common in the underarm area on white shirts and on dark clothing. However, your deodorant is not solely responsible for this. Discoloration usually occurs when the minerals present in the sweat are exposed to deodorant ingredients, causing a yellowish stain. The best way to avoid this is to not apply the deodorant and allow it to dry for a few minutes before applying it to your clothes.
