Everyone sweats; it’s just how our body is meant to work. That’s why we then use deodorant to help us feel dry and confident throughout the day. Putting on deodorant has become part of our regular morning routine, just like washing our face or brushing our teeth.
But have you ever thought about the ingredients in your deodorant? Do you know what you may be putting on your skin every morning before you head out the door? Many store-bought deodorants contain harsh toxins that are known to cause skin sensitivity or even health risks. What can we do to eliminate those toxins…how about a natural deodorant?
Let’s learn how using a natural deodorant can benefit not only your skin but also your health.
What Happens When You Apply Deodorant?
If you’re thinking about trying a natural deodorant, you’ve probably heard about the toxic chemicals in traditional ones that can lead to various cancers, cognitive disorders, allergies, and skin irritation.
That’s because deodorant and antiperspirant ingredients enter the body through your armpits, and these ingredients that you use every day, are then making their way into your bloodstream. The more often you apply, the more toxic chemicals and synthetic ingredients are entering your body. This may seem like a small amount, but it accumulates day after day after day into your body’s systems.
Why Use Natural Deodorant?
If you’re using general store-bought deodorant, take a look at the ingredients label. Do you see words like fragrance, parabens, phthalates, triclosan, and aluminium? These are toxic chemicals and preservatives that have shown links with various cancers, Alzheimer’s disease, thyroid interference, and other hormonal disruption. These ingredients are used to give it a scent, they help preserve the deodorant and they block your body’s natural sweat glands.
These questionable ingredients may be causing long-term health issues without you realizing it. As much as no one wants to smell or be sweaty, our bodies need to release toxins, and these sweat-blocking ingredients aren’t letting your pits do their natural job.
First of all – Sweating is Supposed to Happen!
Sweating helps the body achieve balance, regulate temperature, and expel toxins that have made their way into your system. Stopping your body from sweating isn’t normal or healthy. Most deodorants that you can get at a grocery store or drugstore contain aluminium to clog pores and make it impossible for your body to sweat the way it’s supposed to do. Natural deodorants, on the other hand, will help eliminate unpleasant body odours. They keep bacteria from mixing with salt and water on the skin while allowing your body to eliminate toxins the way it should. This is a good thing!
What are the Benefits of Natural Deodorant?
If you’re concerned about protecting your body from the above toxins, switching to a deodorant made with natural ingredients helps ensure that you get the odour-blocking protection you need while keeping your overall health and well-being in check. Finding the best natural deodorant for your body and lifestyle may take some time, but it’s worth making the switch.
Sweating isn’t what we want to stop. Sweat doesn’t cause body odour, but when it’s combined with bacteria on your skin it can leave you a bit smelly. Natural deodorant doesn’t stop your skin from sweating; it neutralises the odour. The ingredients in natural deodorant help eliminate bad odours using potent botanicals found in nature. Natural deodorants avoid using synthetic and artificial ingredients and instead use clean skin-safe ones that you can use without being concerned about long-term health concerns.
How Does Natural Deodorant Work?
Natural deodorants won’t plug sweat glands, and they don’t contain the often-worrying ingredients mentioned before. Instead, they’re made with ingredients that your body understands and can process.
- Cleansing Ingredients – Natural deodorants are often made with antimicrobial and antibacterial properties, like coconut oil, zinc and baking soda. These help to absorb and deodorize the odour that’s caused by naturally-forming bacteria on the skin.
- Pleasant Scent – Most organic deodorants are scented naturally using essential oils to block body odour and leave you smelling fresh. They also heal irritation and calm inflammation.
- Absorbent Ingredients – Naturally absorbing ingredients like arrowroot powder and baking soda help combat excessive moisture.
Are you ready to show your armpits some much-needed love? Look for a natural ingredient-based deodorant that will help your skin feel nourished, clean, and protected while working with your body’s natural systems and processes.
