Sweat is a way for your body to regulate its temperature but not only that it’s also your body’s way of detoxifying itself. This is because your body releases accumulated heavy metals and petro chemicals which are chemicals derived from petroleum or natural gas. Your body releases these toxins through your sweat.
Why do we smell when we sweat?
Sweat itself doesn’t actually smell it is water and salt. The smell comes from bacteria on your skin reacting with your sweat.
What is the difference between a deodorant and antiperspirant?
Deodorants don’t stop you from sweating they neutralize odour and kill the bacteria.
Antiperspirants don’t allow you to sweat this is because they contain aluminium compounds which block up your pores.
What are the risks of using chemical deodorants and antiperspirants?
Your body likes to absorb things through your skin, so you need to be careful what your putting on it. Most ladies shave there armpits which can cause cuts and if your putting chemical deodorant or antiperspirants on after shaving, chemicals such as parabens and aluminium compounds will be absorbed straight into your body. Parabens have been linked to breast cancer but have not been confirmed to cause it. And aluminium creates estrogen like effects and causes havoc with your hormones. I always thought I was a really sweaty person and I was using all kinds of antiperspirants to stop the sweat. This was when I was in high school and I used to get really embarrassed when I sweated though my school shirt and had big wet patches under my arms, and lately since using the organic deodorant I’ve noticed I sweat less and I believe this is because the antiperspirant blocks your pores and your body cant release its toxins so it works harder to create more sweat and eventually you will sweat though the antiperspirant and have big wet patches under your arms. I’m so happy with my organic deodorant and if you feel like ‘no this won’t work for me I’m a really sweaty person and nothing works’ just give this deodorant a try because I was very skeptical before using it as well.
Are there any Chemical free deodorants out there?
Yes there is the deodorant I use is the Miessence Tahitian breeze deodorant which contains Sodium bicarbonate which you might remember your grandmother using to get rid of bad smells in the fridge. This is because bicarb soda neutralizes odour and that’s why it works so well in a deodorant. It also contains aloe Vera which most people love because it’s a natural antiseptic and disinfectant. These two products together are what keeps your armpits smelling nice while also letting you sweat naturally so your body can release toxins. There are three deodorants to choose from Tahitian breeze, ancient spice and aroma free. They are all roll on deodorants which is great because they last for a long time and are small enough to carry around with you.
