Wave Goodbye to Summertime Smells with these 5 Fresh Tricks

When Your Subway Commute Is the Pits


Waiting on a steamy train platform can basically undo your A.M. shower, which is why youll want to stash these Whish Deodorant Swipes in your bag or desk drawer. The single-use wipes whisk away B.O., soothe underarms with calming oat extract, and even contain hair growth-inhibiting chaparral extract so you can go longer between shaves.

DIY: Swipe witch hazel on your underarms before heading out for the day; the natural astringent keeps bacteria at bay and tightens pores to reduce sweating.

After Youve Put Some Serious Miles on Your Sandals


Pounding the pavement for a full day can leave your feet feeling less than fresh, but Jasmine Sevens minty Fresh Feet Wipes treat toes to an instantly cooling cleanse. The best part? The packs are purse-friendly.

DIY: Brew a tea bath for fresher feet: The tannins in black tea kill bacteria and close your pores to help you sweat less. Steep a couple tea bags in two cups of hot water, then dilute the tea with eight cups of cold water, and soak your feet for 30 minutes.
