You’ve got your morning routine down to a science. First, the alarm beckons you from your cozy sheets and deep slumber. It’s not your favorite part of the day, sure, but you’re used to it. You might be guessing that the next step of your morning-routine rundown is a hot shower and a layer of deodorant, but let’s pause to consider an alternative. Instead of diving under the steady, steamy stream of your showerhead in the morning, consider taking a showerbefore bed to make the most of yournatural deodorant.
Let’s back up for a moment to understand what can make sweat such an unpleasant odor. Surprisingly, it's not sweating itself that smells. In fact, it’s entirely possible to be sweating buckets during a hard workout and smell good. Rather, the pungent aroma of “sweat” occurs when your perspiration comes into contact withexisting bacteria on your skin.
So, you might be wondering, “Why should I switch up my routine by putting deodorant on before bed instead of in the morning?” That’s a fair question, and the answer is twofold
First, natural deodorant should be applied to clean, dry skin to work best. We don’t know about you, but mornings can be hectic. When you’re already working hard just to get to work, there’s not a lot of time to spare to let your underarms dry completely before applying deodorant. Showering in the evening offers a few extra moments to leisurely let your skin air out. When you’re ready to call it a night, it’s prime time to roll on your favorite natural deodorant in preparation for the next day ahead.
Second, and perhaps more importantly, evening is a great time to allow your body to get used to natural deodorant. If you’ve ditched your pore-clogging antiperspirant in favor of an aluminum-free natural deodorant, your body will likely gothrough a detox of sorts. What better way to allow your body to do this than away from the stresses of the office and in the comfort of your bed?
Of course, applying deodorant before bed can work in your favor if a few friends knock on your door for a night on the town. At least you’ll be prepared.
Whether you’re new to natural deodorants or been using them for years, wearing it at night has its benefits.
