All you need to know about Sprays
What is the difference between a deodorant and an antiperspirant?
A deodorant is designed to combat bacteria that causes body odour. Deodorants contain active substances that prevent and reduce the growth of bacteria in places where we sweat, like underneath the arms. Aluminium salts are most commonly used in antiperspirants, as they reduce the amount of sweat that is released from the sweat glands, by creating temporary plugs in the pores. These plugs break down over time as the skin renews itself.
Why do we sweat?
When we take part in physical exercise or activities that cause us to sweat, the body needs to regulate its temperature to prevent it from becoming too hot. It does this through evaporative heat loss, by releasing sweat through the sweat glands. You can also sweat if you are stressed or nervous. This type of sweat is produced by different sweat glands, usually within your armpits, palms and forehead. Stress-induced sweating is linked to the body's natural fight-or-flight response.
Is it harmful to the body to prevent sweating via antiperspirant?
Because you only apply an antiperspirant or deodorant to your armpits, this only accounts for around 1% of the entire body's surface, and so it wouldn't impact your body's thermoregulation. Both deodorants and antiperspirants are safe to use.
What can I do to remove yellow stains caused by deodorant?
Yellow stains are often tough to remove, and just putting your clothing in a laundry cycle sometimes won't make a difference. Rinse your clothing in cold water first before putting it in a hotter wash with laundry detergent. Applying citric acid to a yellow stain has also been suggested to remove it prior to washing.
