Deodorant – myths that just won’t go away
Sweating makes you slim and sweat smells… or does it?
There is also a persistent rumour that sweating makes you slim. If only that were true! Unfortunately this belief is wrong. When we sweat, we only lose water – not fat. The weight loss is balanced out even after taking a drink break.Belief number three: It’s not just sport that makes us sweat – spicy food has the same effect. There is some truth to this rumour! Hot spices boost our metabolism and promote the circulation. The body reacts to this by producing more sweat.
NIVEA explains deodorant myths. Which are true and which are just rumours?
- If you take a cold shower, you won’t sweat. This is only true in the short term. A cold shower certainly does cool the body down, but the body balances out the temperature after a short time.
- If you use deodorants on freshly shaved skin, you risk getting razor burn. Wrong: razor burn is not caused by deodorants, but because sensitive skin is irritated by shaving. Use a shaving foam or shaving gel to protect your skin. You should then go for a deodorant without alcohol, such as NIVEA Dry Comfort Spray. Nevertheless, avoid applying antiperspirant for a while after shaving.
- Another belief: Deodorants and antiperspirants block the pores in the skin. In fact, aluminium-free deodorants work on the surface of the skin, neutralising odour-forming bacteria. In contrast, the antiperspirant ingredients constrict the pores for a limited lime to reduce sweating. This ensures a fresh feeling and has absolutely no negative effects on your skin. It can continue to breathe freely.
