This is because they're exposed to more environmental aggressors like sunlight, chemicals from soap and detergents (especially in these COVID-19 times). But luckily for us all, there's plenty that can be done to prevent wear and tear — so let's protect those paws!
I've been using a very popular deodorant basically my entire adolescent and adult life. Over the last few years, however, I've noticed that it's stopped working for me. I'm not sure if the brand altered their formula (I've heard others express similar issues), or if my own chemistry changed (it happens!)... but despite how many times I re-purchased or switched up the scents, it just wasn't working anymore.
