Dove Prevent armpit smells

How to prevent armpit odour and care for underarms

  • 1
    Minimise sweat.

    Antiperspirant is a lifesaver – it minimises armpit smells by reducing the amount we sweat, while caring for and protecting our delicate underarm skin. Our Original Antiperspirant is a great choice when it comes to combatting these issues

    Shaving helps.

    Should you decide to shave your underarms, it can actually help to prevent odour, since the hair traps sweat, providing ideal conditions for bacteria to multiply

    Let skin breathe.

    Wear clothes made from natural fibres, such as wool, silk or cotton: they allow your skin to breathe, letting sweat evaporate faster, so smelly armpits are less likely to develop

    Prevent and protect.

    Add antiperspirant to your bedtime routine – you don’t sweat so much during the night, so it’ll give it more time to absorb into your skin. Try Dove Go Fresh Cucumber & Green Tea Roll-on Antiperspirant – you’ll wake up with beautifully fresh smelling underarms…

    Remember to refresh.

    This might be an obvious one, but make sure you remember to top up your deodorant before doing anything that’s going to get you working up a sweat, whether it’s hitting the gym or enduring the bus at rush hour
