Many people confuse deodorant and antiperspirant, but there is a difference between the two. Deodorants are meant to mask body odor and prevent wetness under your arms. They do not stop perspiration from happening all together, therefore they will only keep you dry for a little while. Despite how long they can last on your skin, deodorants should be used at least every other day to avoid causing irritation or rashes that could possibly lead to acne breakouts later on in life. Antiperspirants go deeper than just stopping sweat as it also stops bacteria growth so you won’t smell as bad throughout the day no matter what you do! Antiperspirants work best when applied after shaving or showering so that there isn’t any hair left on your armpits which would block their effectiveness!
