News about celebrities’ arm pits situations are less frequently polluting our news feeds and news updates but it seems interesting to see a list of stars that refuse to use deodorants. Celebrities’ body secrets always point us towards new beauty trends and product obsessions. So this news has us wondering what is it about deodorants that celebrities feel so cautious about? Could it be the controversial claims that antiperspirants are comprised of aluminum and paraben ingredients which are linked to serious diseases such as cancer and Alzheimer’s?
What’s the problem with Antiperspirants?
Many of us have been using antiperspirants to block sweat and keep odor at bay. The problem is while you are blocking the sweat from coming out of your body, you are keeping toxins inside your body. The aluminum compounds found in antiperspirants clog pores and prevent the skin from perspiration. Sure, you may not be sweating, but is this healthy for your body? Over time, as sweat builds up behind clogged pores, it becomes trapped and causes inflammation and often other serious side effects. In addition, a buildup of sweat-digesting bacteria develops which in turn causes even worse odor. Isn’t this beating the whole purpose of a deodorant? It gets worse, the aluminum in deodorants causes an acidic reaction leaving all your clothes stained with yellow spots. There are also more serious health side effects as these toxic ingredients have been linked to Alzheimer’s and cancer.
Making the switch to a natural deodorant
What you put on your body directly affects what also goes in your body. Making changes in your regular beauty regimen can be quite challenging, especially when it comes to sensitive areas such as the arm pits. None of us like to feel sweaty or insecure about our under arm smell and so we prefer to stay loyal to antiperspirants that keep the sweat away. We often forget the effects that antiperspirant has on our body and our health. With a simple change to a natural deodorant, you can keep the odor away and stay healthy at the same time. There is no need to compromise your health to keep the sweat away and feel fresh.
An all natural deodorant has a number of benefits and it’s a perfect alternative to antiperspirants. Because it does not block your sweat glands and neutralizes odor, it is a healthy and effective choice. Choosing a natural aluminum-free deodorant allows your body to breath and release its toxins without causing odor. It is important for our bodies to sweat and release not only its toxins but also to regulate our body temperature. There are protein based deodorant formulas that neutralize the odor caused by sweating without clogging our pores. Natural deodorants are great for everyone men, women, and teens but are especially helpful to breastfeeding and pregnant women who should stay away from any toxic chemicals during this time. It is also great for people with sensitive or irritated skin as natural formulas soothe and nourish the area. Lovetica’s natural deodorant is made from a vegetable protein that neutralizes odor-causing enzymes to a simple salt.
