Make the Switch

If you read my last post, you probably already know my reasoning of switching to natural deodorant. While many studies are still ongoing, inconclusive, or have not occurred (that's a whole other topic), there is enough data evidencing why natural deodorant is a healthier and safer option.


Detox: If you are looking to make the switch or have already started, just know, there is going to be a period of "detox" before your body regulates itself and your natural healthy-bacteria returns. Your armpits are probably going to smell a little funky and you might feel like you are reapplying your deodorant 2-3 times a day. This can last anywhere from 2-4 weeks and rashes and itching have also occurred (if rash/itching occurs, be sure to check the ingredients of the natural deodorant you are using, especially the type of fragrance being used!) (Health Nutrition).


What's Next: After about a month of sticking to your natural deodorant, you should see an improvement and likely only need to apply your natural deodorant (depending on the kind) every 2-3 days.


Remember, natural deodorant is NOT an antiperspirant, so expect to sweat!
