Why you shouldn’t put deodorant on in the morning

Get up, have a shower, get dressed, sort hair and make-up then head out for the day. Most of us do this pretty much every morning without even thinking. Easy.

But according to a skin care expert we’ve actually be doing a key part of our morning routine wrong, and we should actually be putting our deodorant on before getting into bed.

It may seem a bit odd, but dermatologist Sandra Lee claims this is the most effective way to use the product if you don’t want to smell, and she has the science to back it up.

Sandra, who is better known as Dr Pimple Popper after starting in her own TV show about spots, rashes and cysts, shared the unusual hack during a video about her night time routine.

Taking a break from cleansing and moisturising her face, she stops to use a roll on deodorant.

Speaking in Harper’s Bazaar ‘s video, she says: “This is a little secret that I have.

“Deodorant is best applied at night, it is most effective at night because you’re putting it on when your sweat glands are the more dormant so it’s going to make it more effective.”

Who knew?!

During the tutorial Sandra also shares her biggest regret of how she treated her skin when she was younger, saying she wishes she didn’t rub her eyes so much.

It causes damages to the area which changes the skin which over time causes lines and wrinkles. Instead she dabs her face and her eyes at ever step of her cleansing process.

When it comes to washing her face, Sandra has an important tip which can make a huge difference to you skin.

She said: “The thing that’s really important about washing your face that I know from a dermatologist’s perspective, is that when you’re washing your face you’re actually getting rid of moisture, so you really want to not go really hot and you don’t want to go really cold either.

“When you’re washing face you’re actually getting rid of the moisture. You don’t want to shock your skin. Lukewarm water is the best.

“I don’t rub my face either, I just rinse off.

“When your skin is still moist that’s the prime time to moisturise because if your skin is wet the moisture evaporates.

“The air pulls the moisture out of your skin and you get drier. That’s why you get that tight feeling after you wash your face.”
