In summer, the question of how to choose a deodorant against perspiration, becomes relevant for everyone. There are a lot of questions to these cosmetic and hygiene products. There is a lot of controversy around them – some people think that you can not do without them, and someone chooses natural remedies for fighting excessive sweating.
In hot and stuffy weather, excessive sweating in the armpits causes us the greatest discomfort. It is there that more eccrine and apocrine glands are concentrated, which secrete cooling "moisture" and substances with the so-called "species" smell. Highlighted slime is decomposed by bacteria that live on the surface of the skin, and an unpleasant "scent" appears, whitish traces on clothes and other "joys".

Antiperspirant – they block the secretion of sweat, dry the skin. Most of these products do not contain perfume fragrances.
Deodorants They fight with bacteria, which cause their "work" unpleasant smell. They are aromatized, which makes it even better to mask the smell of sweat.
What about clothes?
Even the best means from sweat can spoil clothes – on it there are whitish traces, the paint in places of hit of a deodorant fades. The fact is that in the antiperspirant and deodorant composition there are aluminum salts. In order not to spoil your favorite dress, blouse or top, you need to correctly apply them.

Folk remedies for sweat
The fact how to do it deodorant their own hands you can learn from old cosmetology recipes. In ancient treatises, they are described in great numbers!
