Where Should You Actually Be Applying Deodorant?

You wear deodorant every day to keep the stink at bay when you sweat. It’s not the sweat itself that smells, but the bacteria that builds up when you get damp and sweaty. Yes, your armpits are a no-brainer when it comes to applying your deodorant every day. Turns out there are other places that can benefit from a swipe with the deodorant. Whether it’s to cut stink or for other purposes, try wearing deodorant in these other places.

1 Use It to Mattify Your Face

The powdery ingredients you find in deodorant can help keep shine and grease at bay on your face. Don’t you hate when you leave the house looking matte and then you look in the mirror only to see a shiny forehead? Me too! Swipe your face with deodorant and this issue will quickly become a thing of the past for you.

2 Prevent Blisters with Deodorant on Your Feet

Got a fab new pair of stilettos that are giving you blisters? Roll some deodorant on your feet and you won’t have to worry about it anymore. Why? Because the deodorant helps create a barrier that prevents your shoes from sliding up and down on your feet and giving you blisters. Perfect!

3 Keep Sweat out of Your Eyes with Deodorant at Your Hairline

Tired of going for a run and winding up with burning eyes when your sweat runs into your peepers? Solve that problem in seconds by swiping deodorant all along your hairline before you hit the pavement. Make sure you use an invisible stick so you can’t see it. If deodorant doesn’t do the trick, try antiperspirant, which is better at stopping sweat.

4 Prevent Razor Burn with Deodorant on Your Bikini Line

Even if it’s not swimsuit season, you don’t want ingrown hairs and razor burn along your bikini line. It just doesn’t feel good! To prevent it, swipe the area with deodorant and you’re good to do. You probably want a separate stick of deodorant for this though.

5 Keep Chafing at Bay on Your Inner Thighs

Chafing on your inner thighs is never a good situation. It hurts and it’s hard to get rid of once it starts. To make your thighs glide nicely along each other, swipe them with deodorant. The reduction of friction between your thighs will cut down on redness, bumps and other discomfort. Easy, right?

6 Get into Your Skinny Jeans with Deodorant

Even the tiniest girl can have trouble getting into her skinny jeans from time to time. Make things glide on in the most wonderful way by swiping deodorant up and down your legs. It will make your pants go on so easily and it won’t leave marks or stains on your skinnies. No more suffering through bad fashion just because you can’t get those jeans pulled up! Yay!

7 Keep Sweat Away from Your Breasts

There’s nothing worse than feeling sweat running between your breasts, right? You can get rid of the issue with a quick swipe of deodorant. You can also use it under your breasts when you exercise or when it’s hot outside to prevent sweat stains from appearing in an embarrassing place. Use clear in this area to prevent those nasty white marks on your clothing.

Have you ever thought to use deodorant in any of these places? Which one are you dying to try out today?

Luv these tips but the deodorant on face scared me LOL


I'm happy to read the smart comments here. This is bad for skin that isn't in your underarms and honestly with all the chemicals it's not even the best thing for people to use.


It's been proven that deodorant dries up your skin and should only be applied to to your underarm.


I dont think I'll try any of them.


Ummmmmmm I don't mean to be rude but... WHAT!? Deodorants are made for underarms, not any other body part.


Ahahha! Swipe it on your armpits and then you face?!! 🤔🤔 I don't think so!!


Like taylor, I'm not putting deodorant on my face. Oh no no


Good points. But you didn't mention if the deodorant needs to be alcohol free.
