We know it’s cold, but if you think you can skip deodorant in the winter, think again.

Regardless of weather conditions, perspiration is inevitable, it’s a good rule of thumb to apply daily. You can opt between traditional or all-natural. Natural deodorants are made without aluminum, the main ingredient in traditional antiperspirants that plug sweat glands. Natural deodorants also block pores and keep the body from sweating, leaving you less smelly than before. So if you don’t want to be that person people avoid on the subway, below are 11 affordable, natural deodorants that actually work.
