Quite often when people make the decision to change over to a natural deodorant quite often they think it just doesn’t work but don’t worry I’m here to explain why this happens.
So after many years of using commercial aluminium-based antiperspirants and deodorants, it may take your body some time to adjust to an all-natural deodorant. This is because aluminium blocks your sweat glands to stop you sweating and your body becomes reliant on these nastie chemicals, essentially forgetting how to naturally correct any bacterial imbalances on its own.
Once you change over to a natural deodorant and stop using aluminium to clog all those underarm glands, some people may find they go through an initial “detox” period, where they sweat or stink more than usual. But don’t STRESS It’s not that your natural deodorant doesn’t work, it’s simply the body expelling all of those toxins that have been trapped in your armpits all this time.
This detox period can last anywhere from a couple of days, to a couple of weeks, depending on the person, But please definitely stick with it, your body will adjust and be healthier for it.
To assist with the detox period, KIND-LY has created The Armpit Detox which is a 7 day armpit mask that helps draw out impurities, clear skin and assist in the transition to natural deodorant.
It’s also important to note that a natural deodorant is not an antiperspirant. Meaning that you may still sweat when wearing a natural deodorant. Remember though – sweat is your friend, but it doesn’t have to stink
