14 Common Deodorant Mistakes You Might Be Making
You might be confusing deodorants and antiperspirants.
"The distinguishing difference between deodorants and antiperspirants is that the latter contains aluminum chloride, an ingredient used to block sweat," Delphine Lee, M.D., Ph.D., a dermatologist and director of the Dermatological Center for Skin Health at Providence Saint John's Health Center told Women’s Health.Once antiperspirant is applied, your sweat ducts are temporarily plugged which stops the sweat. The main job for deodorant is to mask the scent. If you sweat a lot, you might want to use antiperspirant instead, according to Bustle.
