The great outdoors has taught me three inconvertible truths:
- Spending time in nature is time well spent.
- Food tastes better when cooked over an open fire.
- After several days without a shower, my body starts creating some “exciting” smells.
Let’s face it, if you love the great outdoors, you probably also like the freedom of skipping a shower or two. It’s natural. There is a particular primitive pleasure in communing with the natural world. When time seems to slow down in the wilderness, why would you want to disrupt it with routine?
Still, the truth is, you are eventually going to stink.
Enjoyment of the Great Outdoors Comes with a Great, Smelly Price
We’re all guilty of stinking. We pack the camp soap and our ‘trusty’ deodorant stick, thinking we’ll sneak off for a quick hippie scrub to cover up our stench. When, in reality, we’ve only done just that: cover it up.
Eventually, that stench will rise again with a mocking vengeance. It haunts us and our campmates with heavily fragranced B.O.
Body odor is indiscriminate. It doesn’t matter if you’re camping with guy friends, girl friends, family, your partner, or even by yourself–when you stink, you stink. Yes, you might care more if you’re with a particular cohort, but in the end, you still smell.
If you go long enough without proper hygiene–especially in the wilderness–you won’t even be able to tolerate your own stench. It could also lead to some uncomfortable situations. For instance, you could attract the wrong crowd (the lions, tigers, and bears crowd).
Mando Helps You Connect with Nature
The true test of a deodorant is when you make the first position shift of the night in your sleeping bag, and the waft of air from below comes barreling up the tube and hits you in the face. That can make or break confidence, especially if you share s'mores and starry skies with someone special. The au’ natural escape can cause just that if your hygiene gets the better of you and you’re without a deodorant that works with you and for you.
The plus side to camping with Mando Whole Body Deodorant, the deodorant that keeps bacteria from doing what it does to make you stink, is you can skip those showers and still feel confident in the harshest heat.
Mando works from head to toe and everywhere in between. No matter how diehard a camper you are, the stink factor determines if you should call it or carry on.
What’s great about Mando Solid Stick and Invisible Cream is that they are clinically proven to control odor anywhere on your body for up to 72 hours!
Mando Deodorant works without baking soda, a common cause of chafing (iykyk). Mando is made with Mandelic Acid, a mild alpha-hydroxy acid that stops odor before it starts by preventing bacteria from digesting bodily fluids and causing odor reactions. This means you won’t be helplessly and ceaselessly slathering heavy fragrances to cover up body odor.
PRO TIP: try Mando Unscented if you truly want to become one with nature. It has all the clinically proven benefits of our scented deodorant, but without the, you know, scent. Unscented is available in Invisible Cream, Solid Stick, and Body Wash.
A Little Mando Can Extend the Adventure
Before leaving on your adventure, apply some Mando Deodorant to your underarms, package, feet, and other stinky areas. Depending on the length of time you’re in the elements, you can reapply Mando Deodorant as needed to help control B.O., with or without water.
Take some Mando Deodorant Wipes for added convenience, especially when you'd like a cloth to separate your hand from some of your funkier parts! It’s a shower in your pocket and a travel companion that’s got your back (as well as your pits, feet, and stinky bits). Forget ordinary wet wipes and try Mando Deodorant Wipes - they're clinically proven to control odor for 24 hours!
Carry On And Smell Great For The Next Leg Of Your Adventure
Whether I’m camping in the winter under sweaty layers or in the heat of the summer, it’s essential to ensure I’m treating my body well.
I don’t know about you, but I'm much happier when I spend more time outdoors. I’m now a more confident and comfortable camper, hiker, and adventurer with Mando.
Here’s to the great outdoors!
