When it’s hot out, sweat and body odour can be a big annoyance, especially if you have sensitive skin that can’t handle deodorants that contain alcohol, perfume or aluminum. Luckily, there are hypoallergenic products! Here are a few of them.
If you have a red rash on your underarms or they feel itchy, your deodorant is most likely to blame! Made with antibacterial ingredients and fragrances, deodorants mask odour but don’t stop the sweat. Antiperspirants, however, contain aluminum salts that block the sweat glands, thus reducing the release of sweat and keeping underarms dry.
If your skin is sensitive, you’re better off using hypoallergenic deodorants that don’t contain any irritants such as alcohol, aluminum, parabens or fragrances. Here are a few of them.
