Putting a stick of deodorant on your face may sound ridiculous, but this is pretty good to use. While our armpits are definitely the sweatiest places on our bodies, that’s not the only place we need protection. Have you heard of something called boob sweat? The average perspiration-stopping stick can actually reduce friction, stop perspiration, and kill bacteria from head to toe (especially toes). Keep reading to discover 10 other spots to apply deodorant before the summer temperatures hit a peak. If you’re going to slather your skin with product, we recommend using a natural formula that is aluminum free.

5 Ways You Never Thought to Use Deodorant
What is

A deodorant is a substance applied to the body to prevent body odor caused by the bacterial breakdown of perspiration in armpits, feet, and other areas of the body. A subgroup of deodorants, antiperspirants, affect odor as well as prevent sweating by affecting sweat glands.

5 Use of Deodorant Other Than Your Armpits.

1. It stops your feet from sweating.
At night, rub some deodorant on your soles. Just like your armpits, it can keep your feet from sweating. Even better, it can make your feet smell better, too.
Actually, you can try this trick pretty much in any area — under your boobs, behind your knees, and even your palms — you want to keep extra dry.

2. It protects your feet against blisters.
There's no denying new shoes take a few wears to really break in. Luckily, a little deodorant can make the easing-in process a lot less painful. Simply swipe the back and sides of your foot before throwing on your just-purchased heels or flats. The deodorant acts as a barrier, protecting your skin from friction.

3. It also curbs chafing.
For those of us who've suffered from annoying thigh burn, this trick is life-changing. Just rub a bit of deodorant on the inside of your legs before you head out on a hot day. This especially works before a run.

4. It relieves itchy insect bites fast.
Most deodorants are made with aluminum, which is great at easing irritating bug bites. The best part? The relief is almost instant.

5. It can remove nail polish in a pinch.
Spray a little deodorant on a cotton ball or pad and just wipe it away. You can also spray it directly onto your nails. But you have to work fast because spray deodorants usually dry quickly.
