How to Switch to Natural Deodorant with the help of an “Armpit Detox”
Switching to a natural deodorant is an easy way to eliminate a few potential toxins from your beauty routine. More and more consumers these days can easily find and choose a natural deodorant they would like to try, but then are disappointed with their results once they do. As with any change in your skin care routine, the body needs time to adjust and adapt. We have learned a few tips along the way to help make transitioning to natural pleasant and effective.
The most important thing you can do is detox! We recommend an easy “Armpit Detox” before starting a natural deodorant. This helps remove built up toxins and bacteria that traditional deodorants and antiperspirants can cause, giving your body fresh start while also making your new deodorant more effective.
1 tablespoon bentonite clay
1 teaspoon Apple Cider Vinegar
1 – 2 teaspoons water
Scrub underarms with a loofah or washcloth.
Mix clay and Apple Cider Vinegar to create a paste, adding small amounts of water if necessary for a smooth consistency.
Apply an even layer to underarms and leave on for a few minutes, up to 20 minutes maximum if desired.
Rinse off with warm water.
Repeat for two to three days.
Drink plenty of water to help your body flush out toxins.
Get Exercise! Sweating naturally will speed up the detoxification process.
Make sure to wash underarms well every time you bathe, as clean skin will respond better to natural deodorants.
