What happens when we apply fragrances directly to skin?
Firstly, deodorants and roll-ons makes you skin cool that abrupts the process of sweating which actually abides smells and odours. Actually this thing only invites dermal problems.
Sweating is a natural process and should not be restricted in any manner. During summers, we use talcum powders etc to avoid sweating; that is not so bad as it gets disappeared in short interval.
When you spray deodorants to skin, it clogs the skin pores restricting sweating. Prolonged usage causes damage in skin pores, which gives birth to abnormal cells or cancer cells beneath the skin!
Unknowingly, they grow rapidly and may be causing a serious trouble in future!
