Your Questions About Showering Answered

Let's face it: showering is a science, and we're the scientists. Okay, fine. Technically, we're a doctor-developed whole-body deodorant company, but we field many shower questions from you guys. Consider this blog your official shower cheat sheet, filled with tips, tricks, and answers to all those questions you've been too shy to ask.

Should I shower immediately after sweating?

-Daniel P.

Yes, it’s generally recommended to shower after sweating heavily, such as after a workout or work presentation. Showering helps remove sweat, bacteria, and dirt from the skin, preventing body odor and skin irritation. For best results, use Mando Acidified Body Wash or 4-in-1 Cleansing Bar to control odor for 24 hours and prime your skin for maximum freshness. If you’re nowhere near a shower, you can use our Acidified Deodorant Wipes for a quick refresh. They also provide 24 hours of proven odor control.


Why do I sweat more after showering?

-Mike P.

Sweating after showering is common, especially during the hotter months. Hot weather and hot showers raise your body temperature, prompting sweat production as your body cools down. Humidity and poor ventilation can trap heat and moisture in your bathroom, making sweat less likely to evaporate. To reduce post-shower sweating, try cooler showers, ensure thorough drying, improve bathroom ventilation, stay cool, and wear breathable clothing. Consider using Mando Whole Body Deodorant to stay fresh even when you sweat.

Can frequent sweating require more frequent showers?

-Jeff M.

Yes, people who sweat a lot may need to shower more frequently to maintain hygiene and prevent body odor and skin issues. We recommend using one of our Washes and following up with a Whole Body Deodorant for proven 72-hour odor control. This will help you stay fresh longer and avoid using up your entire town’s water supply.

Does sweat cause B.O. if I don’t shower immediately?

-Jack N.

Yes, sweat is mostly odorless, but when it mixes with bacteria on the skin, it can cause body odor. Showering with a high-quality, pH-optimized cleanser after sweating helps control this odor by removing sweat and bacteria. Swiping on or rubbing in one of our Whole Body Deodorants after you shower will make you an odor-free powerhouse.

What’s the best way to shower if I have hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating)?

-Matt Z.

It won’t prevent you from sweating, but a pH-optimized soap can help manage odor from sweat for those with hyperhidrosis. Cool or lukewarm showers may be more comfortable, and less drying than hot showers, and moisturizing after showering can help protect the skin. In addition to 24-hour odor control, our Acidified Body Wash and Cleansing Bar are clinically proven to hydrate the skin and lock in moisture. Just sayin’.

Can not showering after sweating cause skin problems?

-Mike S.

Yes, not showering after sweating can lead to skin problems like acne, rashes, and fungal infections, as sweat can clog pores and create a breeding ground for bacteria and fungi. So, even if you’re a Mando user, you should definitely still shower regularly.

Should I use special products in the shower if I sweat a lot?

-David H.

The Cleansing Bar and Body Wash can certainly help. Mando is pH optimized so your skin can more effectively prevent odor reactions. While Mando isn’t an antiperspirant, it can benefit those who sweat excessively, as it helps disrupt the bacteria that can cause odor and skin issues. A good whole-body deodorant after showering can help control odor for up to 72 hours. We know of one or two.

Can I just rinse off with water after sweating, or do I need soap?

 -John K.

While rinsing with water can remove sweat, we don’t recommend using traditional soap. Soap removes odor but doesn’t control odor because it typically has a high pH, leading to more odor reactions. The 4-in-1 Cleansing Bar is formulated with Acidified Technology to stop odor before it starts. In other words, you’ll be shower-fresh all day.

If I use Mando, do I still need to take a shower? 

-Kevin L.

Yes. Mando is not intended to replace showering but extends the freshness you feel right after showering. It’s clinically proven to control odor for 24 hours—better than a shower with soap and water alone. (That’s not just an empty claim; we tested it, by the way.) So, you can shower every day or skip a shower; no one will ever know the difference! (We’ll know, but we won’t tell anyone.)
