Sensitive skin can get easily irritated by certain ingredients in regular skincare and hygiene products. The underarm, in particular, is a delicate area, and using deodorants that contain harsh ingredients can cause irritation and discomfort, leading to itchiness and pigmentation.
Stop using your current deodorant if it causes a burning sensation every time you spray it on. Instead, look for other options that are more suitable for your sensitive skin. Here are some tips to keep in mind while picking a deodorant for sensitive skin.
Say no to alcohol-based formulas
Alcohol is the most common ingredient found in deodorants. It’s added so that the product dries quickly when sprayed on the skin. However, alcohol can be harsh on the skin, especially sensitive skin can cause itchiness and a burning sensation. Thus, it’s recommended to use alcohol-free deodorants such as the Rexona Women Shower Fresh Deodorant. Its contains 0% alcohol which makes it is perfectly safe to be used on sensitive skin and provides 48-hour protection against odour.
Look for soothing ingredients
Sensitive skin is prone to redness and itchiness. Hence, look for a deodorant that not only provides odour protection but also contains soothing ingredients to calm the skin. Ingredients like aloe vera, cucumber, green tea, etc. are perfect for anyone looking for a gentle deodorant for their sensitive skin. The Dove Go Fresh Spray Antiperspirant Deodorant, Cucumber and Green Tea is an alcohol-free deodorant that contains ¼ moisturising cream along with the calming goodness of cucumber and green tea to soothe your underarms and keep odour at bay.
Pick ones with a mild fragrance
Strong artificial fragrances have the same effect on your skin as alcohol. Deodorants are meant to leave your skin feeling subtly scented, and keep you feeling fresh all day long. Anything with an overpowering smell will leave your sensitive skin feeling irritated. Therefore, we suggest using a deodorant with a mild fragrance such as the Dove Spray Moisturising Cream Deodorant Original to keep your sensitive underarm area free from odour and irritation.
