Natural deodorants have been on the rise since we have learned that regular deodorants carry harmful ingredients like Aluminum, Triclosan, Phthalates, Parabens, Fragrance, etc. These ingredients have been linked to disruption in the reproductive and developmental hormones, cancer, allergies, and even skin irritation. Your skin absorbes what ever you put on it, there are times when it can enter your bloodstream without being metabolized.
I’m just not a fan of any of that! I decided to try natural deodorants for around a year now and let me tell you, it hasn’t been fun or the prettiest. I have had rashes and peeling skin, I had to figure out ingredients my body didn’t like. I have had to learn and accept that I won’t always smell 100% amazing and it is okay to smell like a human and not a flower all the time.
(If you have a rash, peeling skin, red patched, or any reactions to your natural deodorant, it is not your body is “detoxing” your body is telling you it doesn’t work for you, don’t keep using it.)
The biggest thing I have been learning is to detox my armpits in the midst of transitioning to a more natural deodorant. I have heard some people say to stop using deodorant all together, but that isn’t my scene! So, I did some digging and I learned that people were putting face masks on their armpits to pull out toxins!
HOW DO I DETOX MY PITS?
I decided to give it a shot! There are two things you need this for a strong clean detoxing mask and a clean charcoal soap bar!
As we have learned before you have to be very careful of what you put on your arm pits so I decided to look into it and the two most natural and most commonly used face masks were the Aztec Secret Indian Healing Clay Facial Treatment and the Counter+ Charcoal Facial Mask.
I used the Counter+ Charcoal Facial Mask since I already have it in my dorm, and twice a week I put it on my armpits and let it sit for 20 minutes! It looks so weird but totally worth it!
I use my Charcoal Cleansing Bar every-time I show to help purify my pores, reduce acne and pull out any toxins! I have really noticed a difference in a decrease of odor scent and less irritation to natural deodorant. My body is transitioning so much easier ever since I started doing this!
Counter+ Charcoal Facial Mask – $49 (Currently on sale for $44.10)
Charcoal Cleansing Bar – $26 (Currently on sale for $23.40)
