Whether you workout every day, work long shifts standing all day or generally spend most of your day on-the-go, there's a good chance you spend a lot of time surrounded by other people. And that's exactly why your body odor needs to be under control—no one wants to be around someone with swamp pits.

Luckily, good deodorants and antiperspirants help with just that. Deodorants eliminate smells caused by bacteria that form in your moist underarms, while antiperspirants prevent sweat from forming so bacteria can't grow.

There are so many great options beyond what you see in the drug store. For guys that sweat a lot, there are sprays guaranteed to last for well over 24 hours. Looking for the best deodorant for sensitive skin? Some of today's top deodorants and antiperspirants are made with organic, natural ingredients. You can even find great options that can be personalized to your liking and come with a subscription model.
