Throwing some weird shit at you guys again. Nothing new.
I hate deodorant.
I’m like afraid to use it because of the ingredients and where all those ingredients are going.
I KNOW. I’M INSANE.
But really, if you think about it? It’s kind of sketchy.
The ingredients ( aluminum, parabens, etc. ) in most deodorants basically stops the flow of your sweat. Just straight up plug themselves in there and stops your body from doing what it has to do, naturally.
THAT gets me.
& what’s right next to where you’re putting this stuff?
Your lymph nodes.
I am no doctor, but NO thank you. I’ll let my body sweat. I am not putting those ingredients to get absorbed into my body right near my b’s lymph nodes.
So, I smell sometimes. Legit. Sorry.
There have been times where BA ( so nicely ) hands me his stick of deodorant.
I just have to be honest with you guys, it’s an issue.
I use this pit paste.I got it at Whole Foods. You can snag it on Amazon, too.
No aluminum, parabens, toxic chemicals, and no GMO’s.
So much yes.
It isn’t sticky at all, or too wet-ish like the coconut oil ones? I felt like those ones were just sticky and wet all day long – I’ve tried a lot. The struggle.
So, I love the pit paste.
But I still smelled.
Someone told me a year or two ago to try activated charcoal.
They said to take the pill, break it apart, and rub it on your armpit.
BUT – they said it is was going to stain my armpit a bit.
So I never did it.
Instead, I got shamanuti activated charcoal cleanser.
It is a scrub that I also use on my face, so no mess of breaking up the pill.
+ take a finger-tip full of pit paste
+ put a half to one pump of activated charcoal on the paste
+ rub it onto your armpits
I don’t use a ton of the charcoal scrub, so I don’t see stains ( it’s dark when it goes on, but totally washes off ).
+ usually, I put the pit paste charcoal mix on at night
+ in the morning I do JUST the pit paste, no charcoal
YOU GUYS – I can’t not believe the difference in smelling LOL.
I also carry around a scented pit paste stick with me at all times. Just in case.
What do you think?
What kinds are you guys using?
I’m so invested in this deodorant dilemma right now!
