7 Places to Apply Deodorant Other Than Your Pits

 

When it comes to body luxury, we don’t hold back. Yes, sweat happens, but so does oily skin and blisters. There’s a product sitting in your bathroom that can combat all of your body’s nemeses and truly transform your sanctuary. Read on for more surprising ways to use deodorant that don’t involve your arm pits.

  1. Mattify Your Face

Use your fingers to dab a bit of your everyday deodorant on your cheeks, under your eyes, on your t-zone, and any other area that tends to get oily. The same formula that keeps your pits nice and dry doubles as a shine controller. Go makeup free or apply before makeup application.

  1. Soothe Bug Bites

Swipe the deodorant stick onto a mosquito bite to reduce itching. The aluminum salts in deodorant aid pain and swelling.

  1. Keep Feet Odor Free

Just like you do with your armpits, you can use an antiperspirant to protect your feet from sweat and stink. Apply a thin layer on the bottoms of your feet and allow to dry before slipping into a pair of shoes.

  1. Slip Into Your Jeans

We’ve mastered the bunny hop to slip into our skinny jeans, but if that doesn’t work, coat your legs with deodorant to easily slide into a tight pair of jeans or your favorite fitted skirt.

  1. Prevent Thigh Chafing

Repetitive thigh to thigh friction can cause sweating, redness, and irritated bumps. To avoid, take the deodorant and apply it to the inner thighs to avoid chafing.

  1. Prevent Foot Blisters

Rub deodorant on the heels and sides of your clean, dry feet to avoid the dreaded new-shoe blisters. The formula acts as a spread on Band-Aid and creates a lubricant layer that blocks friction. And unlike sores, the fresh smell doesn’t hurt at all!

  1. Freshen Your Closet

Pop off the top of your favorite scented deodorant and place it in the corner of your closet. The fresh fragrance spreads like powerful potpourri.

Glide on a touch of anti-perspiration and see where it takes you.
