Serena Williams and Secret Deodorant Team to Promote Gender Equality

Serena Williams is continuing her mission of women’s equality with a new job title.
The tennis champ is Secret Deodorant’s newest brand ambassador, teaming with the P&G-owned brand to promote gender equality in sports.
“[Secret] has a history of supporting women’s issues and fighting for women’s equality,” Williams said in an interview with WWD, ahead of the announcement on Tuesday. “That’s what I do. I fight for equality and I’m vocal about gender bias. It only makes sense for me to join in this charge with Secret.”
Together, Secret and Williams will be conducting a study on gender inequality in sports to see how gender bias plays out for athletes ranging from high school players to professional sports leagues. The brand will then donate $ 1 million to organizations that address these issues.
The partnership is a natural one for Williams, who has routinely been outspoken on gender-inequality issues throughout her career. Williams most recently spoke on her activism at a press conference on July 13 after she competed in Wimbledon, stating: “The day I stop fighting for equality and for people that look like you and me will be the day I’m in my grave.”
She’s also used fashion as a way to communicate her

How to fight B.O. sans deodorant

There’s no definitive proof the compounds in deodorants and antiperspirants—like aluminum, parabens, silica, and talc—are harmful, but they have come under a lot of scrutiny as of late.

So we get your desire to go without.

Of course, sweating is a natural bodily function that helps regulate your core temperature and keeps your skin healthy, so trying to stop sweating entirely wouldn’t be smart. But there are steps you can take to cut down on the stink.

Basically, bacteria cause these odors, so keeping the pits clean is key. “Many people don’t realize how important it is to wash your armpits well with soap and water when you shower or after a sweaty gym workout, then dry off and apply a bacteria fighter immediately—before bacteria can get going,” says Starre Vartan, of the Mother Nature Network.

“If you wait a couple of hours, you’re just applying it over the bacteria, and it’s far less effective.”

There are plenty of all-natural products you can use, including alcohol, baking soda, and essential oils. Vartan uses her own homemade spray-on formula: a mix of two-parts alcohol (she uses a high-proof organic vodka) and one part water, with sage and lavender or tea tree and orange oils for scent.

That should keep those suckers down.

The Best Deodorant I’ve Ever Used

If there's one thing men's deodorants have in common right now, it's that they all try to out-man one another with scents you'd associate with Paul Bunyan-y masculinity. Unfortunately, they all just smell like chemicals, and more often than not, don't actually make you feel clean — which is a crappy quality for something that takes up precious space in your Dopp kit.

That's why we hope
