I used to feel like I had to shave Every. Single. Day. Sometimes twice a day if I wanted to feel super smooth for an afternoon beach session or date night. I swear that sometimes right after I shaved, if I got the shivers, I could feel those freshly shorn hair pop a new ⅛ inch out again.

Whether you like them short, efficient, and ice cold or piping hot with a dozen different products to use, showering is a regular part of our lives.
But just how “regular” does it need to be?
On those days where you’re short on time and you didn’t really break a sweat, you might find yourself having an internal “how often should I shower” debate.

And if you’re like me - the skin freakout. Thanks to a lovely combination of stress, lack of sleep, poor eating and "maskne" my skin was in need of a serious reset.
My secret weapon? Vitamin C.
Fun fact: Sweat doesn’t stink. It’s actually odorless until it combines with bacteria living in your armpits.

So what’s your best defense against that unpleasant body odor — deodorant or antiperspirant?
Here’s what you need to know about how each product works, key ingredients, and how to choose the right product for you.
