Switching to Natural Deodorant
People today have become more conscious of the lifestyle choices they make than ever before. With increasing awareness of the side effects of chemicals being used in almost everything, an inclination towards organic and green products can be seen. But sometimes they find difficulty switching to natural products and then they want to know why it is so?
I have heard many people complaining that “Natural Deodorant doesn’t work for me”. Switching to Natural Deodorant is a process that one needs to understand. Before switching to Natural Deodorant one must be using regular Antiperspirants which contain aluminium.
What impact do Antiperspirants have on the body?
Antiperspirants work by blocking the sweat ducts and prevent sweating. Sweating is the body’s natural way of releasing toxins from the body. And blocking this process can be dangerous as it can lead to various diseases.
When a person stops using the antiperspirants then he experiences excessive sweating and bad body odour due to the release of built-up toxins, bacteria and chemicals for at least a week. This is the time when most people give up saying “natural deodorant doesn’t work”.
What people should understand is – it is natural and their body would be normal again when it passes this phase of detoxification. The transition phase takes around 30 days to get back to normal and for some, it is shorter.
How do Deodorants work?
Deodorants do not block the sweat glands and let the body flush out the toxins. Sweating is actually important for the body to function properly and sweat is not smelly. The bad odour is when the sweat gets mixed with the bacteria under the arms. Deodorants work on the skin surface by eliminating the bacteria under the arms and the scent in the deodorant provides freshness and soothing fragrance all day long.
How to survive the Armpit detoxification phase?
Here are some tips to get you through the transition phase:
- Wear cotton fabric as it absorbs moisture and is soft on the skin.
- Don’t wear tight clothing that rubs against your skin.
- Take shower after a workout or a long day at work.
- Carry Deodorant with you in your bag, you might need to use it more frequently.
- Drink more water and do not skip your workout.
