Antiperspirant and Deodorant - the fearsome twosome
Are deodorants and antiperspirants the same? Not really, but they're on the same team.

If they are so great together, should you use both deodorant and antiperspirant? Well, not necessarily! Read on to find out more.
Which one do you need - deodorant or antiperspirant?
To know when to apply deodorant or antiperspirant, let’s break down what they do.
Deodorant’s main goal is to fight body odor all day long, by eliminating the bacteria that creates odor and covering you with an irresistible fragrance wherever you go. Anti-perspirant, on the other hand, stops sweat in its tracks.

And, sometimes, it’s down to external factors: you might use anti-perspirant on workout days or in summer but stick to deodorant only in winter. It’s all down to what you need.
