If you’re an active guy, choosing the right deodorant can be difficult. What’s the best deodorant for athletes? We found seven styles at Dermstore that easily fit the bill for the modern guy on the go.
Choosing a deodorant can be tough, and it’s often a matter of simple trial-and-error. You want something that works, first of all, in fighting wetness and odor. But so many underarm products do one or the other, but not both. You also want something that smells good. But it can’t overwhelm (or worse, do battle with) the scents from our hair, skin, and/or beard products. We also want something that won’t leave a mess on our shirts after a quick mid-workday gym session, or irritate us with a bunch of chemicals that we don’t want need.
But did we mention it’s got to work, too? Depending on how much you sweat, when you hit the gym or the court, and whether or not you need to go back to the office (or the bar) after your session, and what other grooming products you use regularly all factor into the decision.
We put together this list of seven of the best deodorants for athletes that don’t sacrifice form for function—or health concerns for profit. Many of them are all-natural, most of them are aluminum-free, and all of them come in at under twenty bucks.
