With October being Breast Cancer Awareness month, what better time to talk about going ‘aluminum-free’ then now?
In case you haven’t heard, the ingredient aluminum is found in your standard antiperspirant deodorants. Although there are no definitive results, it is speculated that aluminum can be bad news for your body – bad news as in….. Breast Cancer.
Aluminum works by clogging the pores in your armpits inevitably halting sweat altogether. Our bodies were intended to sweat, so that is the first red flag right there. Second, aluminum and parabens have been found in breast cancer tumors.
I don’t know about you – but if there is even a CHANCE that these are related, I’m not having any part of it….. no way!
So with these facts in mind, I made the switch! And here’s how…..
If you’ve been using a deodorant with aluminum for some time, your armpits are going to need a little extra love to detox. So that brings me to step 1 (and my favorite part!)
- Cleansing with this Activated Charcoal Bar Soap. The charcoal does wonders at detoxing and pulling out the impurities!
If you need a little extra boost to detox, use this Purifying Charcoal Mask once a week. At the same time both of these products are also FABULOUS for your face care – so definitely recommend!
- After showering, you will want to Spritz your Pits two to three times each. This spray is composed of 5 powerful essential oils – clove, lemon, cinnamon, rosemary, and eucalyptus! These 5 oils boost antioxidants, help fight bacteria (which is the cause of underarm odor), and much more. Then finish up your morning or evening routine to allow the essential oil spray to dry.
3. Lastly, you will apply your Aluminum Free Deodorant >> this Grapefruit and Bergamot scented is my current favorite – but if you click here, there are several great scent options! All created with non-toxic fragrance!
Our deodorants use plant-based science to control odor. In combination with step 1 and 2, they minimize wetness and leave skin smelling clean and fresh while its smooth blend swipes on easily.
IMPORTANT: Your body will need to go through a detox period, so don’t expect results immediately if this is your first time trying an aluminum-free deodorant. Practice patience because your body will thank you later!
The detox period is different for everyone, some just need days, and others need weeks.
Now is truly the best time while practicing social distancing and staying home more often, so what are you waiting for?!
