Study Shows Stress Sweat Makes You Seem Untrustworthy, But These 5 Aluminum-Free Deodorants Can Fix That
Stress sweat, that particularly odorous excretion that happens when you're flustered and tense, actually lets other people know that you're stressed (yes: our friends can smell that we're stressed). But even worse, a new study shows that stress sweat signals to men that you're less confident, competent, and trustworthy. Eye roll and sigh of despair. Before you sprint over to the deodorant aisle, remember that aluminum, the active ingredient in antiperspirants, may be linked to breast cancer (studies have shown conflicting results, but the issue is still on the table). These aluminum-free deodorants may not prevent you from being stressed, but they'll hide the fact that you are.
