That’s just the TL;DR version. Get into the nitty gritty of deodorant tips below:
1. Let it Breathe
For those that shave your underarms, take some time to let them breathe before you apply your deodorant. Shaving is known to generate microscopic cuts to your skin, so if you apply deodorant immediately afterward you might experience some irritation.
Let your freshly shaven underarms dry completely before applying your deo, and remember to swap out your razor regularly for the closest and the cleanest shave.
2. Warm it Up
Schmidt’s deodorant formulas contain no fillers, which means, they’re pretty condensed with plant-based oils and powders. While it may seem tough at first, your stick will soften once the oils come into contact with your body heat.
Our tip? Gently press your deo stick to your skin, let it warm up for 10 – 30 seconds and feel as it softens… and then apply. The now softened formula will help the ingredients absorb more evenly to help you get the best odor protection, while also avoiding irritation to your underarms.
3. Less is More
When it comes to natural deodorant, less is more. One to two swipes is all you need.
As with all our natural deodorant formulas, Schmidt’s should be applied in small amounts to help avoid common issues like yellow stains or stickiness. You might be used to slathering on your deo, but trust us on this one. Your t‑shirts and that delicate skin under your arms will be so grateful.
