The benefits of using a natural deodorant
Sweating is a natural process that our body goes through each and every day. We all sweat! That's why you should always use natural deodorants that don't block this process!
Sweating is a natural process that our body goes through each and every day. We all sweat! The purpose of sweating is to cool the body down and remove toxins. As this natural detoxification process is so important in regulating our bodies, we need to ensure that the deodorants we are using don't prevent it! When making the switch to natural products, effective deodorants are often tricky to find. That's why I've made it my mission to stock the best range of natural deodorants!
Why should you choose non toxic deodorants?
Using mainstream deodorants filled with toxic ingredients can throw off the bacterial balance in your armpits. This increase in actinobacteria can actually cause your perspiration to smell worse if you stop continuous use!1 The solution to this imbalance is to detoxify your armpits and begin using natural products that don't cause build up of bad bacteria. Yuck!
How can you restore balance to your armpits?
There are many steps you can take to ensure that balance is achieved in your armpits. The first is of course to stop using toxin filled deodorants! Some other helpful steps in the detoxification process is to stay hydrated and monitor how your body reacts to your current diet. Some food and drinks can actually be worsening your sweat odour! Things to look out for include caffeine, unhealthy fried food and alcohol. Listen to your body! You can also take steps throughout your day by choosing to wear breathable natural fibres that don't trap odour. Ensuring that you are completely dried off after a shower is another simple way to prevent bacterial build up.
How to transition to using a natural deodorant!
Transitioning to using a fabulous natural deodorant is quite easy even while going through the detoxification process. Aside from monitoring how your body reacts, you use your fingers to rub the natural deodorant into the skin which ensures that it is absorbed well. Another tip is to shave your armpits at night and apply deodorant in the morning to avoid irritation. Last but not least, remember that perspiring is completely normal! It's your body's way of removing toxins!
