The key to keeping body odor and sweat under control is using a good antiperspirant deodorant and topping it off with a few sprays of daily fragrance.
But why should you use both?
It’s easy to get confused between a dry spray antiperspirant and a daily fragrance. Here's how to use each, explained.
What Makes Sweat Smell?
To understand the benefits of antiperspirant, you’ve got to get to grips with sweat and body odor first. Your body actually produces two types of sweat.
First, you’ve got the sweat that comes from your eccrine glands, which keeps you cool by secreting water and salt. They don’t smell bad at all.
You also have the sweat that comes from apocrine glands. They leave deposits of fat and protein on your body. Mix these with the bacteria on your skin and boom: body odor occurs.
