Question and answer
  • QUESTION How do I know when to start wearing deodorant? I don't ever want to smell. I would be soooooo embarrassed!!!
  • ANSWER Hormones to do with puberty are usually the reason perspiration and odour can start becoming noticeable. So it’s often not a bad idea to start thinking about using an anti-perspirant when you around 10 to 12. Just check the label to see that it is actually an anti-perspirant and not just a body spray or deodorant, which doesn’t stop perspiration and odour but instead just mingles with it – yuck!!!

    Kiannaa I started wearing deodorant a few months ago and I'm 11. If you are scared to ask here is how I done it: I asked my mum to go to the store with me. ( you can get deodorant almost everywhere ) I walked over to the deodorants and looked at them and my mum came too. I said mum can I get one of these for pe? Because everyone in my class has them. And then my mum said of course! 
    i am scared to ask my mum things but after all they are our mums so we can't really be scared to them can we? Hope I helped xx

    Viennal Hey guys I can give you this advice. Your parents job is to be there for you and to love and protect you. You should not feel embarrassed to tell your parents anything. It is important to be open with them trust them. That is what they are there for. Xx

    cheerleaderLife i was too embarassed to ask my mum for anything so when i turned 12 my mum just went to the store and bought me pads,deoderant and some sports bras. she gave it to me and explained that i could ask her anything if i was now really close to my mum, and i think 12 is a good age to start wearing it

    SuperMissMan When you start growing hair, put deodorant on. I think 10 or 11 is about the right age.

    jessisbest86 I started when I was 8 because I was getting a bit sweaty and so I just asked my mum when we were doing the shopping and passed the deodorant section and she said yes. It isn't really a big deal but you want to be wearing it when you are ten just in case.
