We've Been Applying Antiperspirants Wrong This Entire Time

October 15, 2015 1 min read

Morning routines are hard to break, especially because, for most of us, they are the difference between pulling the covers over our heads and, truly, really making it out the door on time for work. You pull yourself out of bed with every morsel of morning energy you have and hit the bathroom to wake up. You splash water on your face, brush your teeth, put a comb through your hair, apply deodorant, and suddenly you feel like you can actually face the day. Deodorant is most effective when applied at night. But it turns out there's one step in that morning routine that ought not to be there: antiperspirants! As it turns out, antiperspirants are actually much more effective when they're applied at night. “Remarkably, this gives the best possible result, but almost no one does it," says Jeffrey Dover, M.D., a Boston-based dermatologist. Just to confuse you more, there's also a difference between deodorant and antiperspirants. Deodorant covers up body odours with fragrance, but wears off after a few hours. Antiperspirants work by targeting sweat production with aluminum compounds. This in turn temporarily plugs your sweat ducts, ensuring that they stay dry. So why apply antiperspirants at night? Because most likely, you're not sweating as much as you were throughout the day explains A. Yasmine Kirkorian, M.D., a clinical assistant professor of dermatology at George Washington University’s School of Medicine and Health Sciences. Were you aware of this?

Shipping & Delivery
We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping (whichever is faster) with our partners at UPS. Once your order has been processed successfully we try to have your shipment prepared within 1-2 business days, and it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse.

Free Shipping: We are thrilled to now offer free shipping at checkout! If you choose this option at checkout, your order will be delivered ground within 5-7 business days.

We currently DO NOT SHIP to locations outside of the US and Canada. We DO NOT ship to a P.O. Box number.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Sometimes delivery can be delayed by circumstances out of our control, like postal & custom delays, back-ordered products or incorrectly entered shipping addresses. If there is a delay at Customs, a representative of UPS may contact you to provide your identification in order to receive your package. Please do this ASAP: Customers will be responsible for any additional shipping fees for failure to provide the required information to release a shipment.

Make sure when checking out and paying for your order that all of your information entered is correct! If you notice a mistake in your address, please try to contact us before your order is processed for shipping to avoid any missed shipments or delays. As soon as we process your order for shipping, you will receive a shipping confirmation email that contains your UPS tracking number. You can head on over to the UPS Website to see where your products are. Note: tracking information may take 1-2 business days to be updated in the UPS system

If you are not home when your package is delivered, BodyRock is NOT responsible if it is stolen. Please contact us if this happens to you and we will provide you with all the information needed to take the next steps.
