If you’re like most people, you’ve probably used the same brand of deodorant for years. But maybe it’s time for you to think about changing it.
When you sweat your armpits harbor bacteria, and just as bacteria can become resistant to antibiotics, it’s possible for your armpits to become immune to the ingredients in your current deodorant.
Ideally, you want to switch brands about every 6 months to prevent resistance. Using an antiperspirant will help. You should look for one that contains about 10% aluminum chloride — according to experts in this field. How do you become an armpit odor expert?????????
Every once in a while I need a break from writing about health, medicine, running, diet, etc. Hope you enjoyed this and learned something.
