Thanks to the beauty industry, deodorant has become a staple in our daily hygiene.

But, did you know that deodorant has many other unknown uses and that they will save you from more than one trouble? Discover them all!
1. Avoid foot odor
After a hard day at work, or kicking around the city in your flats, your feet are likely to end up tired, sweaty and, at times, with an unpleasant smell. To avoid fainting (along with everyone around you) when you take off your shoes, apply some deodorant to the soles of your feet before going to sleep the night before . Warning: if you do it in the morning just before putting on your shoes, you will spend the day slipping. Careful!
2. Dry the granites
First of all, we warn you that this trick should not become your usual way to get rid of the obnoxious pimples . However, if you have an emergency and don’t have any specific acne products on hand , you can apply a small amount of deodorant (cream) to the pimple in question. It will dry in a few hours.
3. Avoid wounds when shaving with a razor
If you like to maintain a perfect shave in your groin but you have sensitive skin and after using the blade you feel the irritated area, apply deodorant as soon as you finish waxing (without alcohol, of course). Not only will it prevent the area from becoming irritated, but it will also help prevent the appearance of annoying ingrown hair. And enjoy the summer!
4. Prevent chafing of the thighs
As temperatures rise, the use of skirts and shorts becomes absolutely necessary. However, this combination of heat and legs in the air brings with it one of the most uncomfortable consequences of summer: the r oceans of the inner thighs . This causes the area to become more sensitive and red, even causing small wounds. To avoid this, apply a little deodorant on your thighs and voila. eye! This is a PREVENTIVE measure. If you already have an irritated area, applying deodorant will only make it worse.
5. Relieve mosquito bites
One of the worst things about summer is mosquitoes and their bites. If you are one of those who, whatever you do, you cannot prevent mosquitoes from putting their boots on you, applying a little deodorant on the bites will make the itching and stinging disappear instantly .
6. Avoid hand sweat
Some celebrities have confessed that they use this trick to prevent their hands from sweating at a premiere, and thus keep them dry when they have to shake hands with their fans. You may not have fans (yet), but sweaty hands are not a tasteful dish for anyone. If you tend to sweat a lot and want to avoid it at specific times, such as an exam or a job interview, try applying a little deodorant on your hands before leaving the house . It works!
7. Avoid rubbing shoes
You wear new shoes and after a few hours away from home you begin to notice a penetrating pain in the back of your ankle. Horror! You already know that you will end up with a blister and just thinking about it will hurt more. Avoid this by applying some roll-on deodorant to the back of your shoes before wearing them . Blisters will never be a problem again!
8. Remove nail polish
We have saved the best for last. The next time you want to remove your nail polish but don’t have nail polish remover on hand, try this trick: soak your hands in warm water for a few minutes and then apply some spray deodorant to a cotton ball. Front the cotton against your nails and voilà! Not a trace of enamel.
