Re: Using Deodorant At Night?

I bought some Secret Clinical deodorant, and the directions say to use it at night.  I take my shower in the morning, so I have to use it then.  I'm not finding that it works very well though.  I noticed that the active ingredient is exactly the same as what is in my Mitchum Advanced Control, and it doesn't say to use at night.

 

I wish I could find a deodorant that really controls well.


 

I sweat a lot - my body temp never went back to normal after menopause.  And I'm terrified of body odor.  I've been around too many people who think they don't smell but they do.  

 

I always use a combination of anti-perspirant and deoderant.  I love Mitchum Advanced Control unscented for men.  It's the same thing as in women's but usually costs less.  I have also used Mitchum Sensitive Solid. I use it after showering whether it's night or morning.  These are the best I've found that I can afford.  

 

Secret used to work for me and I used it for years.  I don't know if they changed the ingredients or if my body changed but it quit working for me in my early 50s.  I've used Mitchum ever since.

I think deodorant is like perfume. It works differently on different people. It  is a body chemistry type issue

I use Schmidt's Rose Vanilla once per day after I take a shower.

I think I could get by without using deodorant at all.

I have never noticed any odor from my armpits.

I'm thinking and only guessing that it's the aluminum in the anti-perspirant that could be a problem, being it's so close to the lymph glands.

 

The straight deodorants probably are fragrance based, to hide/mask any odors.

 

Anyway, I only use unscented antiperspirants only for events that I might be attending, to prevent obvious moisture on my dress, tops, etc. 

 

I don't seem to have a daily odor, but who knows. (?)

 

If one needs a quick anti-odor fix, use a bit of antiseptic  mouthwash (such as List*rine or store brands) in the underarms, or a bit of Vodka.

  A small bottle of mouthwash can be kept in your car, but Vodka........I wouldn't recommend to have it sitting there on your front seat while driving..........

I used Secret and others for years.  This year I started buying a deodorant without aluminum.  It seems to work fine.

Re: Using Deodorant At Night?

You can try Botox for your pits.  It stops all the sweating.  I imagine it would last a few months or so, but I don't really know.

I think people who stink often don't know they stink. Otherwise, why wouldn't they do something about it?  Personally I know when I stink. I use Secret clinical and I think it's better than the other non clinical ones, but it's not 100% foolproof.  Oh well that's life.  We are gonna sweat, what can you do.

Re: Using Deodorant At Night?

p.s.: When at home:

 

I also use refrigerated unscented baby wipes on humid, warmer days, to freshen my arms, legs, etc., etc.

 

Very refreshing.
