Deodorant is by far one of the least glamorous beauty items sitting atop your vanity or inside your bathroom cabinet. However, it is one of the most useful ones. Not only is deodorant an everyday necessity that keeps sweaty, smelly pits at bay, it also comes in handy for other beauty and fashion dilemmas. Here are a couple of ways that deodorant can be useful outside the underarm area:
Keeps feet perfectly pretty
You bought this seasons closed toe Jimmy Choos (no pedicure necessary, thank-you-very-much), but you know they are going to blister the sides and back of your feet. Sure, pain is beauty, but not unnecessary pain. Rub some clear-gel deodorant on the spots of your feet prone to blistering before you step out in your new stiff shoes and you’ll get home that evening to find your feet far less tortured.
Eases razor burn
Many women tend to get razor burn in the sensitive skin areas of their legs, underarms and bikini areas after shaving. One particularly cruel spot where this red, itchy and unsightly rash appears is on the upper thighs. First, it’s important to know how to get a smooth shave, there, of course, comes the remedies for what sometimes is just the inevitable. While Witch Hazel and Aloe Vera are good at-home remedies for razor burn, an unscented solid deodorant stick will also help sooth the itchiness, redness and bumps within a couple of days.
