Have you ever thought that you were missing out on something after you put on your outfit and then realise it was your deodorant? And as days passed by you simply stopped buying deodorants because all the commercials keep telling you that perfumes are enough? Yes, we know. It happens to all of us from time to time. But this little bottle is as important as watching the latest episode of Sherlock (believe me you would want to!).
Deodorants are like best friends. They save you from embarrassment when you know you are going to face one. Despite hundreds of perfumes you have in your dressing table or your backpack, deodorants work as the saviour by fighting the bacteria stuck in your armpits.
Just as much as we do not find it very pleasant when the man standing next to us in the lift smells like garlic bread, we would not want others to feel the same way about us too.
The fact that perfumes work better than deodorant is a myth itself when you realise that you smell like the mixture of your perfume and your body odour at the same time. There are a couple of facts that would convince you as to why you need to add a deodorant to your cart every month.
FEEL AND SMELL AS FRESH AS A DANDELION
Deodorants actually vary in elements to make you feel fresh. Having an anti-body odour is one of the best things you will feel even after you go through a bad day because at least you would know that no one called you a ‘stink sock head.’
KILL ‘EM WITH HYGIENE
We learnt about bacteria from the early stages of fifth grade in our science class. We enjoyed watching the animated characters in the commercial fight and destroy the tiny cute greenish bacterial army and we all loved it. Deodorant works as the good guy and kills the bacteria from your body throughout 24/7, that is if you apply it every day.
SWEAT WITH ZERO TRUST ISSUES
Irrespective of perspiration, deodorants are always safe to deter body odour. Sweating might seem very disturbing but it is actually necessary and with the help of the magic bottle you will not have to worry about smelly armpits any more.
NO MORE YELLOW OR WHITE STAINS
When it comes to not using deodorants, there was always a concern about the yellow stains on shirts and dresses. Unlike what it used to be at the beginning of promoting deodorants, now there are modified products, which actually helps to keep the body odourless and to keep the armpit patches from changing its colour from white to yellow or from black to white.
So, grab your deodorant now. Deodorants might just be the one resolution that is going to work out just fine for you this year.
