Deos: When, how & where to use them

Deodorants are life savers! Especially during the hot, summer months, it’s a boon. Today, deodorants have become a necessity than an accessory skincare product for most of us. Manic working hours, stress, and erratic lifestyle have caused our bodies to go into overdrive and get sweatier than ever.

Here’s where our faithful deos help us battle perspiration. It is important to note that deos and antiperspirants are entirely different. While antiperspirants reduce and or prevent sweating, deos prevents odour without blocking pores, which makes the latter a safer option. Little wonder then that it is the go-to of most people who’re always on the go.

So, after much curating, applying and assessing, here are some deos you absolutely must try.
