You Should Be Putting Antiperspirant on Before Bed?
Does anyone do this already, and does it really work better? Slate.com just did a write-up on how people who wear antiperspirant should really be putting it on BEFORE BED, not just in the morning.
It doesn’t apply to deodorant. A lot of people don’t know there’s a difference. But deodorant just covers up the smell, while antiperspirant has an extra ingredient that PREVENTS sweating . . . aluminum chlorohydrate. (clor-oh-HIGH-drate)
It works by plugging up your sweat glands. And it has an easier time doing that if you put it on before you go to sleep.
If you just apply it in the morning, it doesn’t have as much time to start working. And if you head outside and start sweating, it prevents it from soaking in.
Most people don’t sweat as much at night. So if you put it on before bed, it can really permeate your skin and do its thing.
Unless you scrub hard, it can withstand your morning shower. But you should put more on after your shower too. So really, you want to apply it twice a day . . . in the morning AND before bed.
