We love hacks, and with the super sweaty summer months coming up, we just knew there had to be more hacks for antiperspirant and deodorant. Okay, so the difference between deodorant and antiperspirant is that the first only masks odor whereas the second prevents sweating. So, most of these hacks are technically for antiperspirant. Either way, we think these deodorant hacks will help you sweat less and feel a little more comfortable in hot and humid weather.
