Did you know that changes in your diet, stress or activity can affect a deodorant’s performance? I knew that your body could become sort of “immune” to deodorants but I had no idea the reasons why. I learned this and so many other facts after browsing the Dry Idea website recently and wanted to shed some light on some popular deodorant/antiperspirant myths.
Disclosure: I received free samples from Dry Idea and Right Guard to help facilitate my review. Any opinion expressed in this article is based on my honest experience with the products.
While it’s healthy to sweat, some people can product an excess amount of sweat which can become a problem. Maintaining this sweaty problem is super important to avoid embarrassing situations. Choosing effective products like these Dry Idea products or the Right Guard products (below) have worked for my family and other families around the US.
Whether you prefer a roll-on, gel or stick deodorant, Dry Idea has it all. Their products are made for both men and women and pack a powerful sweat stopping punch in this summer heat. Dry Idea antiperspirants form a seal in the pores of your underarms to help keep you dry and stink-free all day long.
More Myth Busters
Have you ever noticed that after you eat garlic your sweat starts to smell like garlic? Chances are you probably don’t notice it on yourself but you may notice it on someone else. Other foods that change your body odor smell are onions, certain spices, caffeine and alcohol. Also, foods containing capsaicin like certain spices and peppers have been known to increase sweat production so be careful when you’re on a date.
A popular debate is that deodorants with antiperspirants can cause breast cancer. Did you know that his is false? I’m surprised, too. according to the National Cancer Institute, the Mayo clinic and the FDA, there is no conclusive evidence that links the use of underarm antiperspirant or deodorants to the development of breast cancer.
Another popular debate topic is that antiperspirants cause Alzheimers. There is no conclusive evidence to support that theory. But we do know how it may have gotten started. Some studies have indicated that higher levels of aluminum were found in the brain cells of Alzheimer’s Dementia patients. However, the presence of aluminum has not been cited as a cause of the disease. Even if it were, the aluminum salts in Dry Idea®antiperspirant do not penetrate the skin in levels that can be detected in blood. In fact, other common items included in soil, water, foods, drugs, and even cooking utensils contain aluminum. And exposure to any one of these could produce aluminum levels that would be significantly higher than from using Dry Idea antiperspirant.

For the men, I suggest checking out the oh-so-amazing scented products from Right Guard. I love when my husband gets out of the shower smelling fresh and clean and I especially love when I can smell those fresh and clean scents on him all day long. He’s been a huge fan of the Right Guard total defense body wash for years and has newly turned to the Right Guard deodorants/antiperspirants. My husband gets all day odor protection during work and cycling and I get nothing but pleasant scents.
