Any mom with a son doing the whole puberty thing can attest to the fact that at this time in their lives they have a unique ability to smell really, really bad.
It’s this special kind of funk that makes your eyes water and your ears burn.
If they’re athletes, this can be an especially intense situation.
I don’t even have enough fingers to count how many times I have ridden home with my windows down, in the dead center of winter, just so as to not be overwhelmed by the scent of their feet fresh out of cleats.
Or the number of times I’ve gotten into my car and nearly passed out because they left their smelly shoes inside, locked in tight, all night.
I know those of you on the daughter train are probably sitting over there thinking that girls smell really badly too. I’m not about to argue with you –lady funk can be too real.
But, what I will say is that it is a scientific fact that males sweat more than women. And, if you are a woman, you likely think they also smell more intensely than women.
It’s true –you know, according to science.
Something to do with certain hormones and sweat glands and our more sensitive senses of smell.
And the more active you are as a guy, the more sweat you’re going to produce.
If there is one thing I can say about all three of my son’s it’s that they’re active.
They play all of the sports, all of the time.
And they sweat. Like. Craaaaazy.
Art of Sport: Body Care Products for Active Bodies
Art of Sport, a just launched line of high performance body care products, is formulated specifically for bodies that hustle. They are trying to be the fresh solution to sweaty dudes and the products they’ve created are made to help active people sweat a little less and stay fresh a lot longer.
From the stain-free antiperspirant that provides much needed all day odor blocking, to the moisturizing botanical body bar, the products help you stay fresh from the shower for longer each day.
The Dudes are all super sensitive about how they smell and all of them appreciate the way these body care products smell clean and fresh without being overly perfumey.
Personally, I love that Art of Sport has thought of everything when it comes to creating a product active dudes are gonna dig.
The packaging is masculine and cool…
The scents are subtle and fresh.
And you’re not gonna find a bunch of fishy ingredients that don’t seem like they should be anywhere near your body, let alone rubbed all over your skin. You’re not gonna find sulfates and parabens in their soaps, or aluminum and alcohol in their deodorants. What you will find is stuff like matcha, tea tree oil, and aloe vera. Stuff that is good for sensitive skin and known to moisturize, hydrate, and protect. Exactly the type of stuff you want rubbed all over your skin.
As a mom, that’s the type of stuff I worry about.
No matter how old they get, I want to know the stuff I give our them is going to help them feel good, look good, and be good and, so far, the Art of Sport line is not giving me anything to worry about.
The product line includes deodorant, antiperspirant, hair and body wash, a body bar, sunscreen, and a recovery cream that provides relief for sore muscles and joint pains.
Everything is reasonably priced and available right now online. Learn more here: Art of Sport
