I’m dripping sweat, my clothes are stained, and honestly the smell isn’t all the great. Yes, I’m talking about B.O. and armpits! Ever since I was a teen, I started sweating so badly that I wouldn’t wear any grey or colored shirt, and I wasn’t about to be caught dead raising my arms for anything. It was so embarrassing! Going into adulthood it was the same thing! I couldn’t understand it and there wasn’t a doctor that was able to help. So naturally like any person would, I found ways to mask it. I would put pads on the inside of my shirts, I would stick toilet paper under my ta-ta’s inside my bra, and I would even wear a jacket in the dead heat just to avoid people seeing my big PIT STAIN!
After years of dealing with it, I finally found what to me was the holy grail! Two deodorants that worked so well together that my sweating and my smell disappeared. I used one that was ultra-sticky so it would block my pores and keep the sweat from gushing out of my armpits, and another that was nice and soft with an amazing smell! Side note: the second deodorant was a man’s brand, but whatever would get the job done I didn’t care. Here’s where I didn’t think, what exactly was in these products and was it safe for me? Think about 5-10 years ago, we weren’t exactly all on this “what’s going into my body” health train. I think it’s safe to say a lot of us now are concerned about what we are putting in our bodies, and what affect does that have on our lifestyles?
CARCINOGENS IN YOUR DEODORANT
If you aren’t familiar with carcinogens, they are cancer-causing substances. Now you KNOW! Living during a time when cancer it’s an absolute epidemic I think it’s beyond important to be completely in the know of what is going in and on your body. Big companies are being called out on cutting corners with their products in order to make a bigger buck. Our health for their wealth. Here’s a list of carcinogens that can be found in deodorant that is likely sitting in your bathroom and being absorbed into your body right now!
Other Harmful Ingredients:
Now listen, I’m not a doctor or a scientist. I don’t sit on a board for any cancer society, so I can’t sit here and say 1000% none of these should be touched or not touched. It’s completely up to you how you live your life. For me, I’ve made the decision to make a switch. I’d rather not risk it. I’d rather be in control of my life as opposed to a big company with enough money to put some in the pockets of some research teams who will tell me it’s okay to keep using products that are questionable. Get my drift?
Okay, so now that we got the sweaty stuff out of the way, let’s talk about what I did switch to! Technically it’s still deodorant, but this product is what it says it is! Nothing Bad! Best part, y’all I DO NOT SWEAT! I was super leery of it at first because given my history with my fountain underarms, it was a risk. I have to say though, I am not disappointed at all. The smell is amazing and comes from essential oils, I can actually pronounce the natural ingredients, and it’s easily accessible online. I jumped over to Amazon and grabbed mine with our Amazon Prime give-it-to-me-yesterday membership. I’ve linked it for you HERE.
Be your own researcher, be the CEO of your life, take back control from big companies and allow yourself to be the one who makes the decision of what goes in and on your body. This is one of the top switches I’ve made!
