How to choose a deodorant and what’s the best way to use it

Applying a deodorant is an essential daily action for your personal hygiene. However, with the wide range of products available on the market, choosing the right deodorant for your skin’s needs can pose a real challenge. To help you make the right choice, we’ll give you some valuable tips for selecting the perfect deodorant for you.

The various types of deodorant

Deodorant is your best ally in counteracting unpleasant odors caused by natural skin perspiration. When it’s hot, after sports, as well as during the day, you produce sweat: this is your body’s natural way to avoid overheating and disperse heat.

However, this can lead to unpleasant odors when sweat comes into contact with bacteria on the skin. Deodorant helps counteract and avoid them.

There are different types of deodorant on the market:

Stick or roll-on: this is a very convenient format that is applied directly to the skin in a couple of strokes;

Spray: before applying this, it’s a good idea to shake it well and spray it at a distance of about 6 inches from the skin;

Cream: this is a format recommended especially for those who sweat a lot, but it takes longer to dry.

How to choose the right deodorant for your skin

Not all deodorants are the same, but they have characteristics that suit every skin type. To choose the one that’s best for you, you need to take into account your skin type, as well as how you use deodorant.

For example, if you do lot of sports, you can choose a deodorant with a fresh, breathable effect that lasts longer. More sensitive skin may prefer deodorants that do not contain alcohol. In these cases, it’s a good idea to use a neutral deodorant, which does not destabilize the skin's natural pH.

If you sweat a lot, you can opt for an antiperspirant deodorant, which reduces skin perspiration and, therefore, sweat production. If you are out of the house all day, you can choose a deodorant that lasts for 24 hours but does not stain clothes. In this case it would be best to choose a spray format.

The best way to apply deodorant

Applying deodorant is something you do on a daily basis, but let's discover how best to do it. There are no rules on the frequency of application: the action of some deodorants can last for up to 48 hours, but you can apply it whenever you want to freshen up your skin.

After washing the area with soap and water, dry it gently. Apply your deodorant, in any format, to dry skin.

To avoid stains on your clothes, wait for the deodorant to dry completely before putting them on.

To avoid irritation after hair removal, it is best to wait 24 hours before applying deodorant.

The perfect deodorant for you

Choosing the right deodorant may not seem easy.

That’s why Biotherm provides three options to meet everyone's individual needs.

Deo Pure Cream is a cream deodorant with a pleasant, rich texture that provides effective antiperspirant protection for the skin and absorbs quickly without leaving visible traces. Thanks to the antiperspirant agent, its effectiveness is long-lasting, giving a pleasant feeling of freshness. Daily application to clean, dry underarms guarantees gentleness, while its formula respects the balance of even the most sensitive skin. It’s a good idea to discontinue use if you develop a rash or irritation. Do not use it on injured or damaged skin.

Deo Pure Roll-on is a roll-on deodorant that provides long-lasting freshness. A distinguishing feature is its aloe vera-enriched formulation, which protects and soothes the delicate underarm skin. With 99% ingredients of natural origin, it provides effective odor protection all day long. Its refreshing emollient texture transforms into an invisible, powdery, non-sticky layer that remains active for up to 48 hours. For maximum benefit, apply daily to clean, dry underarms, leaving it to dry for a few minutes before putting on clothes.

4x Action Anti-perspirant Spray is the spray version for men. Thanks to the new Smart Protect™ technology, the deodorant provides antiperspirant protection for up to 48 hours, keeping the skin cool, dry and free from perspiration and reducing the feeling of dampness throughout the day. The formula is enriched with a complex of aluminum salts and Perlite, which reduces underarm moisture and absorbs water without a sponge effect. In addition, allantoin, known for its soothing and moisturizing properties, is particularly suitable for sensitive skin.
