Hey beautiful people! Here we are again with another blog. This time we will be discussing the top five reasons why you should use a clinical deodorant and what is the correct way to apply it. There are many blogs on the internet that talk about clinical deodorants and antiperspirants. One such informative blog is the one given here, click to learn more. You must definitely check it out.
You will be surprised to know that antiperspirants and deodorants are often loaded with toxins, which can give long-term side effects. So, we would try to convince you to switch from a regular deodorant to a clinical one.
How Does a Clinical Deodorant Work? And How Does it Differ From a Regular Deodorant?
A clinical deodorant works by increasing the pH of the places where it is applied. Generally, your sweat is odourless but the bacteria in your armpits give it that stinky odour. At increased pH (caused by the deodorant), these bacteria die, thus doing away with the odour.
There are two different kinds of deodorant available in the market, the regular deodorant and the clinical strength deodorant. They differ in the fact that the clinical deodorant has more concentration of the active ingredient.
Since now we know how a clinical deodorant works, we can move on to see why you should use a clinical deodorant
1. It Makes you Perspire without Stinking
As we know that we sweat when we are feeling hot. But why? When drops of sweat appearing on our body evaporate, it takes away the heat, thus keeping the body cool. Sweating is the body’s natural way of reducing the core temperature and when this natural way is hampered, it leads to problems.
Antiperspirants block sweating. They block the pores of the sweat glands. But there is no such effect in the case of clinical deodorant. It allows you to sweat freely but keeps the odour away.
2. Less Allergic
Regular deodorants often carry a risk of allergies like rash and itching. Some may even cause contact dermatitis. Clinical deodorants are clinically tested ones and are less prone to allergies. So if you are having any problem with your current deodorant regarding itch or rash, you can definitely try clinical deodorant.
Despite the benefits, before you buy one for yourself, consult your physician. Also, you must read the ingredient label to find out if your deodorant contains something you are allergic to.
3. Keeps you Fresh for a Longer Time
Once you apply your deodorant in the morning, it can keep you fresh for as long as 24 hours. Some even last longer. All you need to keep in mind is that you have to apply the deodorant over dry skin, not damp. Applying your deodorant over wet skin can decrease the effectiveness of the spray.
4. It won’t Irritate the Skin under your Armpits
After you do hair removal, either by shaving or by some other method, the skin of your armpits is hypersensitive. It may lead to rash and itching. In such cases, a regular deodorant can flare up the condition, so better use a clinical deodorant. It not only calms down the inflammation but also gives you happy and healthy skin. The deodorant’s ability to maintain the pH kills many unwanted bacteria and leaves healthy skin behind.
5. Clinical Deodorants are Available in Different forms
They are available in different forms and people buy them as per their preference. Some people prefer the roll-on pack, while others buy the spray or stick deodorant.
Now, as we know the benefits of using deodorant, let’s move on to looking into some of the things that people do wrong and you shouldn’t.
What are The Things That You Should Keep in Mind While Using a Clinical Deodorant?
1. Do not Apply it on Wet Skin
The first mistake that people make is applying it immediately after bathing. The problem with this is that, immediately after a shower, your armpits are damp. The deodorant will not work effectively under damp conditions. So what you can do is, after you have dried yourself, wait for a few minutes before you apply the clinical deodorant.
2. Do not Put on Clothes Immediately
immediately after you apply the clinical deodorant, wait for some time before you put on the clothes. Else, your clothes will have marks of your deodorant.
3. Do not do Layering
Many people do this mistake. They apply their deodorant over the last day’s later. It reduces the effectiveness of the deodorant. Scrub the deodorant off with water, pat the skin dry and then apply a fresh layer of deodorant for longer action.
4. Read the Ingredient Label
Oftentimes, the deodorant contains elements to which you might be allergic. Although the chances of your deodorant containing an allergic substance are very less, it’s still safe to read the ingredient label. So, the next time you go to a shop to buy deodorant, make sure you read the ingredient label, else you might fall prey to rash, itch, and contact dermatitis.
There can be a lot of reasons for which you can use a deodorant, here we pointed out just a few of them. Apart from the uses, we also looked into the mistakes you should not make while using your clinical deodorant. Avoid these mistakes to yield good benefits out of your deodorant at no extra cost.
