Perfumes Vs. Deodorants : What Should I Choose?

Women have a world of choices available to them when it comes to personal grooming products. They can shop around till they find the best deal, which suits their body and their personality. Which is great if you are not the kind of gal who likes to wear perfume or even a body mist, you can simply try out a fragrant deodorant. Often enough, we confuse deodorants and perfumes to be the same thing. But there are a few differences to keep in mind.

The first of these is that while a perfume is meant to diffuse on the skin and give a pleasant fragrance, deodorants are used specifically to fight body odour. Perfumes are best suited to the body after a bath, since the skin is cleaned. Dirty or sweaty skin will only get worsened with application of perfume, since the alcohol and irritate the skin. On the other hand, deodorants are made specifically to fight body odour and protect the skin from foreign particles that are harmful to it.

There are various types of deodorants available for women as well. Some of these contain "natural" elements such as alum and rock salt, which are great for reducing sweat. Others are said to promote the natural whitening of the under arms. There are many such combinations available!

Deodorants are available in many different types of fragrances, which are in some aspects similar to the perfumes. One can get a musky scent, or a floral scent. There are also woody scents and spicy fragrances. However, the main use of a deodorant is to counter-act any body odour and keep your skin smelling fresh. Apart from these, there are also antiperspirants, which are used to simply block the body from sweating altogether.

If you are having a tough time in deciding whether to use perfume or deodorants, there is a simple way to figure it out. If you prefer stronger scents that linger through the day, then it is best to go in for perfume. Otherwise, for simply cutting down on possible body odour using a deodorant is the best way to go!
