Choosing Between Deodorant and Antiperspirant



Until you understand where body odor comes from, it can be difficult to make an informed decision about the type of deodorant product you prefer to use. Sweat is released across your body as a natural cooling mechanism, and it is initially odorless. Because sweat gathers in your body's crevices, primarily in areas like the armpits and groin, it creates a warm, moist environment that allows colonies of bacteria to grow. These bacteria are actually the cause of body odor because they release a foul smell.

In order to keep odor at bay, you can choose between deodorants and antiperspirants. Deodorants contain ingredients that kill bacteria and make your skin an inhospitable environment for them to thrive. Many deodorant products are also scented, so they replace malodor with their own pleasant fragrance.

Antiperspirants help ensure that body odor isn't able to develop in the first place by blocking sweat glands. Using unique salts that temporarily clog pores, these products keep your skin dry. Without the warm moisture, bacteria has a harder time thriving.

There are many products that combine deodorant with antiperspirant for maximum protection against both wetness and odor.

Advantages of Gels for Men



While you'll find several different types of deodorant or antiperspirant to choose between, gels are especially popular among men. These products are initially moist when they are applied, so you'll know that you haven't accidentally missed any spots.

Gels dry quickly and they don't tend to leave behind any residue like certain types of deodorant sticks or solids. Because they dry clear, you don’t usually have to worry about gel deodorants leaving a mess on your clothes. Gels are also formulated to stay in place all day, so you can apply them in the morning and keep odor and/or wetness away for hours.
