The Importance of Everyday Deodorant Use

Sponsored by Shield

We’re spending more time at home, and that has caused a lot of us to use less everyday beauty and grooming products, but your antiperspirant deodorant shouldn’t be one of them.

Here’s why you should use deodorant everyday:

Prevents body odour


The best thing about using antiperspirant deodorants is that they fight sweat and contain a fresh fragrance. They work by slowly killing the bacteria that causes body odour and they neutralise bad smells so that you can stay fresher for longer.

Keeps sweat at bay

Most antiperspirant deodorants contain aluminium salts – which is the active ingredient that blocks sweat ducts, to prevent sweat from reaching the surface of the skin. For best results, apply your antiperspirant deodorant after a shower and once your skin has dried – your underarms will be protected from sweat and they’ll feel fresh all day long.

Keeps underarms smooth

Some antiperspirant deodorants contain added skin conditioners that make your underarms feel soft. Shield Ultra Fresh deodorant for women has skin moisturising properties, so every time you apply it on your skin, you know that you’re giving your underarms the best care.

Can lighten dark underarms

Research shows that more than 80% of South African women are concerned about dark underarm marks, and we can imagine that this does very little for their confidence. The most common cause of dark underarms is regularly shaving them – with time, shaving can lead to excessive production of pigment resulting in dark marks. Luckily, there are antiperspirant deodorants that even out your underarm skin. With everyday use, Shield Women Even Tone Antiperspirant Deodorant reduces dark underarm marks and bumps in just 7 days.

It is quite evident that using deodorant daily prevents undesirable odour and supports your underarm skin microbiome to ensure that it remains healthy.
