I put it on every time I put a shirt on, even if I just changed shirts because I can't decide. Is that TMI?

I'm a woman who just hit my late 30s and it seems like I'm sweating like a pig all the time. Of course our climate is hot and humid (SE TX), but I've lived here a lot of years and this is a recent change for me. I haven't gained weight either. I have to deodorize a couple times a day usually. I also have to switch brands of deodorant every few months because for some weird reason, they stop working after a while.

My husband is an odd bird. Not only does he never use soap, he only uses deodorant about once a week. He doesn't use shampoo, conditioner, shaving cream, or aftershave either, since he shaves his head bald and doesn't have sensitive skin. He never has any b.o. except that one time a week he needs the deodorant. The rest of the time, he has no smell at all. I have no idea how his physiology is like that, and mine is so stinky.

I do use deodorant daily, but I probably don't need to. Much of the body odors are a product of what we eat. Eat clean and your body doesn't stink.

That would not be true in my case. I ate super clean for 1 year, a raw food vegan diet. I still had BO. I even tried to convince myself that my body didn't need deodorant, I was wrong. I think deodorant is better than antiperspirant though.

Better question:

How important is your deodorant to other people?

i would not want all those chemicals in my childs body at 8 years of age, no way, no how.

use a bar of soap, that should do the trick.
Surely, people know a child does not need deodorant until their body goes through puberty.

I won't go anywhere without deodorant. I even make sure I have some in my car in case I forget. It doesn't happen often since I put it on when I get dressed or after I shower, but sometimes when I am in a rush I do. So I am thankful for having that deodorant there.

What puzzles me is how people survived when deodorant hadn't been invented, and there was no television to convince anyone they needed it. Was every social interaction a worrying experience, as people fretted over whether they were going to offend someone else, or be offended? I can't believe it was. In fact the birth rate was higher, so obviously people were getting close to each other!

For all those who say they don't need it - you likely do but people are either used to you, equally smelly, or don't know how to tell you. Even if your teeth aren't scummy I'm assuming you still regularly brush them? Change your sheets before they're visibly dirty?

This is not to say that people should douse themselves in perfume, be clean, well groomed, prevent odor and we're all good.
