- Lose the Old Habits
Swiping up and down multiple times might have been necessary with your old antiperspirant, but with natural deodorants, moderation is the key. Keep in mind that each person is unique, so finding the right number of swipes that work with your body is crucial. Those with shaven underarms might need a different number of swipes to stay fresh throughout the day as opposed to the women and men with underarm hair. Over-applying deodorants may lead to slower drying time, thus creating an environment where excess product will stain your favorite shirt. No one wants that.
- Don’t Give Up Just Yet
With the initial switch from traditional antiperspirants to natural deodorants, the detox phase can affect anyone. Whether you are seeing more than usual amount of sweat on your shirts, or the stink starts to come through mid-day, your body might be purging impurities and build-up. Now that you’ve allowed your sweat glands to properly breathe, you need to give it time for your body to catch up. If you are struggling to get through the detox phase, add simple steps of cleansing, exfoliating and balancing the skin to help ease this transition, while providing a clean, daily routine for your underarms. Visit our Underarm Detox: Making a Clean Switch page to learn more.
- Know the Difference Between Underarm Rash and Detox
If you are experiencing underarm discomfort or visible signs of irritation or rash, this is your body’s way of telling you something is not working right. While detox symptoms will vary from excessive sweating and smelling more than usual (sometimes a whole lot more), ignoring signs of underarm rash with a hope of “getting through the detox phase” may lead to bigger problems down the road. Check out our Armpit Irritation and Rashes page for more.
- Apply Your Deodorant In the Morning
Nightly application might have been your go-to when you were using traditional antiperspirants, which work by clogging sweat ducts, thus preventing moisture to surface. This allowed antiperspirants to soak in properly to be the most effective. However, natural deodorants work on skin’s surface by neutralizing odor-causing bacteria that thrives in the presence of sweat. Unless you have a reason to not be stinky at night there is no added benefit of applying a deodorant before you hit the sack.
- Try Different Scents
We’ve all heard that “each body chemistry is different.” This cannot be more true for how your body reacts with different scents of natural deodorants. What works for someone else, might not necessarily work for you. If you love the way the deodorant applies, but it makes your underarms smell weird, your body chemistry might not be matched well with that scent.”
It brings me joy to be able to help contribute to the growth of a brand like Rustic MAKA.
I see a future of pure abundance when it comes to brands that truly care about their customers’ health and well-being. For the family (Monica, Alex, Kasia, Anna) running Rustic MAKA, I see nothing but good fortune due to the fact that they’re giving back and their core values are aligned with the protection of the planet and our health.
So, I hope you enjoyed these tips! I know I did when I first read it..
Now go show them some love if you’re on the hunt for some new vegan skin care products. I promise you won’t regret buying their products, you have my word 🙂
