My number one pet peeve

Today I’m going to cover a topic that many people face, especially in hot and humid Singapore; perspiration and body odour. Whether you experience the problem yourself or know of friends who need some help, this post might just give you the information you need!

Whether we like it or not, our bodies are set to react a certain way to our external environments. And in sunny Singapore, I’m sure many of you can agree that the heat here gets pretty intense. The all-glorious tropical sun does no good to us keeping fresh and clean throughout the day. I recall many incidences when I constantly had to check my armpits and ask close friends (of course) to assess my level of odour. Not pleasant at all!!

 

I think it’s especially pressurizing for us girls cause guys seem to live in their own bubble where girls don’t perspire, fart, burp, smell, etc. So conforming to society’s norms of being a lady, we are expected even more to upkeep our personal hygiene. Funny thing though, I know quite a number of friends of mine who don’t seem to perspire much! And some of them…have never heard of the word deodorant!

 

Most people, especially females, have the common misconception on being “light” sweaters. Not perspiring easily doesn’t mean that you don’t need to be mindful of your body odour! I sometimes fall prey to the lazy bug and don’t apply deodorant when I leave the house – which I immediately regret when I step into the sun. I’m not saying I perspire gallons of water but I do see the need for deodorant, especially in a climate like ours.

 

The worst experience would have to be at the gym. I was in a complete state of daze when a LADY walked passed me with excruciating body odour, and I couldn’t help but to pinch my nose and run to the toilet.

 

And here’s where Rexona comes in – The launch of Rexona 3 works on a new technology such that it responds directly to movement. The deodorant contains microcapsules that burst and release fragrances and eliminates bacteria when reacted with movements, all at once! Which means that you can actually do more of what you love without having to worry that you smell bad at any point in the day.

 

Most people remain unaware of their own personal freshness level due to the misconception of being a light sweater! But allow me to shed some light about that… Most of us actually underestimate the amount of sweat we’re producing. Apparently there are several factors that trigger perspiration, beyond the usual factor that we all know – weather. Our perspiration levels can be easily doubled by 5 factors – stress, emotions, humidity, heat and even light movement! We experience these in our every day routine and now you know how easily we can sweat. It takes only ONE drop of sweat, mixed with bacteria to produce odour!

 

That being said, it means that a morning shower is not enough to freshen up and stay odour-free for the rest of the day, because bacteria comes back quickly and together with sweat, odour is produced. Especially for our underarm areas, because there is particularly light movement there, so bacteria gets trapped and hence producing odour. So even for light sweaters, beware!

Since becoming a daily user of Rexona, I’ve passed the “freshness” test omgeeeh! By passing the test, it means that I have been able to remain dry and smell fresh throughout the day. Trying the product for myself is a testament to how effective it really is. COMPLETE AWESOMENESS! As such, I’m totally assured I smell like a ~flower~ throughout the day, keeping my confidence levels way up! This is the perfect add-on to my active lifestyle!

Personally, the best possible way of allowing Rexona to work its magic is to apply it immediately after every shower. Applying Rexona after a morning shower ensures that you retain the post-bath freshness and cleanliness and feel dry all day. I always leave the house with my Rexona in hand; it’s my number one gym and school essential. Since it is so small, its easily fits into any of my gym bags and doesn’t take up much space 🙂

Furthermore the new Rexona has a lock function, so as to prevent any unintended spraying!
