Q Is it better to use perfume or body spray to freshen up after work?
A If you’re just looking to smell extra sexy, a spritz of perfume is perfect. But if you are sweaty and wish you could shower, choose a mist. “They contain more alcohol than perfumes do, and as alcohol evaporates, it feels cool and refreshing on skin,” explains NYC dermatologist Joel Schlessinger. Plus, since a body spray’s scent is more subtle, you can liberally mist all over your body without smelling like a perfume store!
