Perfumes, like our skin care products, if not applied as instructed or suggested, can cause discomfort or irritation to our skin.
Therefore, to ensure that we are not applying perfumes on areas that are not recommended, here’s a guide to help us define which parts of our body are places we should not apply perfumes to.
Many perfume users have probably either heard or used this application method, to keep the fragrance long lasting. However, this method is too harsh on our hair.
Perfumes usually contain alcohol as their main solvent and alcohol is very drying in nature. Therefore, if you spray the perfume directly onto your hair, it could eventually damage your hair.
Spraying the fragrance on your comb first, allowing most of the alcohol to evaporate first, then combing it through your hair, can help to produce similar effect as spraying it onto your hair.
Underarm is one of the most humid and hot areas on our bodies where perspiration is trapped, especially if underarm hairs are present.
Not only can the heat and humidity change the perfume fragrance profile, but more significantly, our underarms are also delicate areas due to the presence of our numerous sweat glands.
Spraying it directly onto the underarm can result increase the likelihood of pore blockage, causing itching, inflammation and even increasing sensitivity.
Sensitive, Flaky or Dry Skin
Dry, sensitive and flaky skins are more prone to broken and open sores. If these areas are clogged with perfume, it can further aggravate the skin condition. In addition, the alcohol’s drying nature can impart more dryness to the skin.
However, despite having dry skin, you are still keen on wearing perfume, one way is to firstly ensure that there are no open sores, then apply lotions or creams before spraying perfume on your skin.
Lotions are great adhesive medium that not only absorbs the applied perfume but also helps to moisturise your dry skin.
It may come off as an unexpected place for people to apply perfume, but in reality, some do apply it on our genital areas, having the intention of removing any foul odours.
However, these places are very sensitive regions of our body and require appropriate and careful care.
Likewise, if perfumes are sprayed onto these sensitive areas, they can cause dryness, inflammation or even infection. Hence, it is not recommended to spray perfumes on this area of your body.
