She may be a shark on the court, but even athletes like Serena Williams will rally with sweat and body odor during the summer months. The 29-year-old tennis star has been serving up a storm this week at the Wimbledon Championships in London, and although we’re sure she’s keeping fresh, her performance makes us reconsider our current deodorant.
Yes, it’s no surprise that stinky pits aren't just partial to athletes. Whether you're at a backyard BBQ, sitting in the stands at a baseball game, or visiting a local street fair, smelling fresh is always a priority. Thing is, warm weather and the sun's heat can be a brutal, smelly combination.
