We all like to smell good. There is no better feeling in the world than walking into a room or walking past someone and they stop to ask, what fragrance you have on.Despite this desire our body sprays have a certain limited time which you can perceive them on your body. So, the holy grail of body spray is to find a way to make them last longer on our bodies or our clothes.
There are some ways by which we can achieve this, and they are;
Spray into the air and walk into the mist- This is one sure way of getting your body spray on you evenly while giving you a lighter scent. This even distribution on your body ensures that the spray lasts longer on your skin all day.
Store in a cool dry place- Okay, we all know this instruction is on most our products which we buy. It is stated there for s purpose and that is making the product last for long. Do you want your body spray to last? Then don’t store it in a damp place. Damp places are like the bathroom vanity. You also want to avoid warm places like directly under light. What heat and direct light does is to reduce the value of the fragrance.The best places to store your body spray is in cool dry spot so it lasts longer.
Keep your body spray on longer by rubbing Vaseline on your pulse spots- Before you spray, rub a bit of Vaseline on your pulse spots. Your pulse spots are behind your ears, your wrists, your neck. What the Vaseline jelly does is to hold in the spray longer than it would stay when sprayed directly on your skin.
Just after taking a shower and well before you get dressed is the best time to put on your body spray. The best Victoria secret body mist is one of such body spray which lasts longer on your body when sprayed this way. This is so because just after a shower there is still moisture on your skin. The moisture helps to lock in the scent and thereby makes it last longer on you.
We know a lot of people complain about having oily skin. Well, this is one time oily skin is great. When you spray on your skin, the oils your skin secrets act as a sealant for your body spray. It seals the spray into your skin and makes it last longer on you.
This is the time to squash a certain myth. Okay, you know how we dab our wrists together after spraying? Well, the truth is this practice makes your spray diffuse faster from your skin. The reason for this practice is to make your spray last longer for you by just dabbing a small amount or when you want just a lighter scent on your skin. But, if you want your body spray to last longer, don’t dab your wrists together.
Recall we said, apply your body spray on pulse spots on your body, i.e. your neck, your wrists and behind your ears. Well, you can also extend this to other warm areas of your body. Other warm areas refer to, for example, your ankles, your elbows, behind your knees, below your midriff, what happens here is as the day goes on, these areas retain their warmth on your body and traps your body spray there. Your ankles even help spread your body spray upwards towards every other part of your body as the day goes on. This helps make your body spray last longer on you.
You can also get your body spray to last longer by mixing it with your body lotion. All you need to do is, pour out some of your body spray into your body lotion so when you rub your lotion, its scents is your body spray. Please note that this works best when the lotion is unscented. There are a lot of moisturizing lotions out there which are unscented, so pick which works best for your skin. You can either mix a little or a lot depending on how strong you want the scent to be.
Still on mixing sprays. You can create your own signature scent. This is done by mixing more than one body spray together. Get say, three or four sprays, start by mixing maybe two at a time till you get the desired fragrance that speaks to you. It is best to pick a combination that has one body spray stronger than the other. So, spray the stronger body spray first then spray the lighter spray scent second. Once you have this settled, you are assured of the body spray lasting longer on your skin than using just one scent.As the lighter scent would fade first leaving you with the stronger one all day long.
Your clothes are not left out. A way to get you smelling nice all day long is to get your clothes smelling nice all day long. How you can do this is by incorporating your scent into your clothes drawer. What you need to do is, get a bar of soap, also unscented, use your body spray on it, wrap the bar of soap in a tissue, then place in your drawer. You can use more than one bar of soap depending on how strong you want the scent to be.
There are some other ways by which you can get you body spray on longer. Spray it on cotton swabs and store in your purse or bag. Whip it out when you need it and dab on your pulse spots. You get to smell all nice all day.
