THE TROUBLE WITH ANTIPERSPIRANT~

Many depend on the strength of antiperspirant to control perspiration, but a little sweat won’t hurt you as much as some of the side effects associated with the product. The various aluminum compounds typically used in antiperspirants work by closing or clogging pores to prevent the release of perspiration. When sweat builds up behind blocked ducts, it becomes trapped beneath the skin. This can cause unpleasant side effects such as bumpy and painful inflammation along with a buildup of sweat-digesting bacteria, which actually cause bad odor. To make it worse, the acidity of the aluminum compounds causes a reaction with fabric leaving a “lovely” yellow reminder of your perspiration on your glowing white shirts.

When digging deeper into the issue, there are larger health risks at stake that aren’t just skin deep. From infertility-causing ingredients to toxic chemicals linked to Alzheimer’s and cancer, antiperspirants contain a variety of ingredients that are absorbed into the skin and can lead to a wide list of ailments and systemic diseases.

THE BEAUTY OF ALL-NATURAL DEODORANT~

As opposed to the synthetic counterpart, natural deodorant has a plethora of benefits. The use of only natural ingredients reduces the probability of suffering from diseases caused by toxic chemicals and limits the likelihood of experiencing contact dermatitis caused by irritants and allergens. Once you have made the transition to natural deodorant, your underarms will feel fresh and odor-free even without deodorant. Also, because your skin won't be irritated and inflamed, you will be able to get a cleaner shave that lasts longer than when using antiperspirant. Oh, and thankfully, your white shirts will stay white.

THINGS TO REMEMBER~
1. Some individuals will need to reapply their deodorant during the day.
2. Your underarms will actually go through a detox process.
To speed up the detoxification process by renewing the skin, exfoliate under your arms twice a week. Wash your underarms daily with natural soap and water. You may struggle with a strong odor for 1 to 3 weeks while your body expels the toxins from your body, but don’t give up! A morning, midday and evening wash may be necessary during this pungent period. Apply your deodorant after each daytime rinse to refresh and protect you throughout the day. You will eventually notice the strong odor disappears and leaves you smelling naturally fresh even without deodorant.
3.Stick with Natural Fiber Clothing

Polyesters and acrylic fibers trap moisture, which cause mold to grow on clothing resulting bad odor. Be sure to wear natural fibers such as cottons, hemp and silk to stay odor-free during and after the transition period.

DON'T GIVE UP!!! YOU CAN DO IT!
AFTER ALL, THE BENEFITS OF NATURAL DEODORANT FAR OUT WAY THE SMALL INCONVENIENCES YOU EXPERIENCE AT FIRST!
