How to detox your underarm before switching to a non-toxic deodorant
Sweating is a natural process of cooling and detoxifying our body. Nevertheless, most of us often use the conventional deodorant to be interfering with our body’s natural attempts to remove toxins. This could potentially be causing long term health effects.
Before changing to a non-toxic deodorant, detoxifying our underarm is a good step to take. After the usage of conventional deodorant, your underarm can unload all the dirt and smell it has been holding onto. In this stage, you might actually have stinkier underarm for a short time.
Your underarm will thank you to enable them to breath. The baking soda in the ingredients may actively pull toxins and bacteria (which causes odor) from the skin.
In addition to it, there are some holistic steps that may reduce the odor and get you through the process quicker.
- Drink more water to help your body flush the toxins out.
- Check your diet. Avoid processed, packaged, and fast food. The toxins will be pushed out from your skin especially your armpit.
- Try dry brushing your skin (especially your underarm skin). It is not only good for removing dead skin but also stimulating blood flow and supporting detoxification process.
- Break the sweat by getting sweat. It will stimulate detoxification and could speed up the process for you.
