But I don’t know how much you are aware of but this is a terrible idea.
The National Cancer Institute has published:
-Aluminum-based compounds are used as the active ingredient in antiperspirants. These compounds form a temporary plug within the sweat duct that stops the flow of sweat to the skin’s surface. Some research suggests that aluminum-based compounds, which are applied frequently and left on the skin near the breast, may be absorbed by the skin and cause estrogen-like (hormonal) effects. Because estrogen has the ability to promote the growth of breast cancer cells, some scientists have suggested that the aluminum-based compounds in antiperspirants may contribute to the development of breast cancer.-
This are of the body serves to the sweat to cool down and naturally to remove toxins from the body. When you are blocking your armpits with usage of cosmetic products you are blocking the natural way of removing toxins.
Deodorants are not medical necessity!!!
“Sometimes as a society, we use products because they are used in a mass, mainstream way, and we never stop to question their validity…or their purpose. Such is the case with antiperspirants. Why do we want to STOP our body from perspiring? Our skin is our largest organ, and it detoxifies waste daily. If we STOP the sweat glands from working, we are holding the toxins in, not allowing them to flow out of the body. We do not want to hinder detoxification like this, and especially not on a daily basis.”
The natural ways to sweat less is drinking lots of water and consuming food rich in calcium and lots of vegetables and fruits.
But to reduce sweat and to smell less you can make your own armpit detoxification. Also this will help you to prevent breast cancer.
Here is a video about how to make an armpit detox!
She used: 2 tablespoons of bentonite clay, 2 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar and 2 teaspoons of water. You can also add 2 drops of coriander essential oil and 1 drop of rosemary essential oil to the mixture.
Apply the mixture under the armpit and let it sit for 5 to 15 minutes. (Those with more sensitive skin should only let it sit for five.) Then all you need to do is wash it off.
Note: this is not beneficial only for women, men can do it armpit detoxification as well.
