Luckily I don't have a huge problem with sweating. I try to stay away from those as well.

Actually he's right, sweat itself doesn't smell...

Quote:
Sweat itself does not in fact smell. The familiar smell of body odour, or B.O, comes from normal skin bacteria breaking down the sweat secretions released from the sweat glands.

Body odour mainly originates from the apocrine glands in the armpits, which release a thick, oily sweat rich in proteins and lipids which bacteria on the skin feed on.

The warm, damp conditions of the armpit are also a perfect environment for bacteria to thrive in and create smelly odours. Body odour occurs during exercise and when we feel strong emotions, because these are the triggers for the apocrine gland to secrete sweat.

Body odour begins during puberty. This is because the apocrine glands, which are involved in causing body odour, begin to function from puberty. As we age, our apocrine glands slow down in function, which means that elderly people tend to have less body odour.

I remember reading about this as well in Health class like 11 years ago.

I stand corrected.

But doesn't that sweat have a direct correlation with the skin? So while the sweat itself may not smell, doesn't the moisture of the skin the stanky funky shit?

It's the bacteria. If you literally just took sweat and drained it into a cup while you sweat it would be nothing more than salty water for the most part and wouldn't have an odor at all.

But don't you guys not like the feeling of sweat in your armpits even if it's stenchless? Yes I have encountered some irritating deodorant before but Irish Spring feels like you put nothing and it keeps your pits dry for 16 hours+

Doesn't really bother me. I don't sweat an awful lot on my pits when I exercise. Most of it is my back and forehead. Plus it's just natural to sweat. I'm fine sweating to cool my body down. I just use the deodorant to help with any smell.

shave pits = less surface area for bacteria + less danky environment for bacteria = maybe less smell. probably doesn't matter tho if you're wearing a shirt.

but ur right, sweat starts to, like, run freely and gets annoying if you're wearing a shirt.

oh, and shaving ur pits lets the deodorant stick on better. if you have any q's, ask the man who taught me: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d1kXwo8VCkc

Cheap chocolate. Axe shower gels are pretty good though. Their deodorants are just extremely cheap, strong colognes.

I either use right guard or old spice, whichever of the two is cheaper.
