*crying over my deodorant
My awesome friend Lauren, who is also the creator(along with her sister Lilli) of bohobeauty really inspired me lately to stop & think about the products I am incorporating into my daily routine.
Ugh, I am a product junkie! I love a good-acne-fighting-anything. Colors, fragrance, tingling sensations... I’m all for it! I got issues I want GONE ok?
Lauren takes the natural route when it comes to beauty/products while I’m more hesitant because sometimes “natural” just s-u-c-k-z/does not work/worthless, wastes my $$ and time etc etc blah blah
*newz flash to myself: ... it’s 2013 now & “natural/organic” is truly something you I am intrigued over.
I’m coming across more & more brands that are all natural & fucken rock my world.
Eminence Skin Care, Tarte Cosmetics, Aroma Naturals..just to name a few
So why natural/organic? Well why would you want to eat fake food? I’m talking about GMO or processed foods when you can have locally grown, organic fruits & veggies.
Same goes for products you use e-v-e-r-y-d-a-y: toothpaste, soap, body wash.. DEODORANT!!!!
Arggggggg... you got me Lauren, YOU GOT ME!!!!
Deodorant is the first item I want to tackle in educating myself with chemicals/nastyz I’m putting on my body everyday.
#1 ingredient that is a no no which is in EVERY SINGLE ONE OF THESE DEODORANT THAT I OWN!!!!!!!!!
If you see this, run for the hills. It’s like seeing an ex boyfriend that sucked... you take a nice glance, maybe smirk a little, hope you smell nice and KEEP.IT.MOVING.
not relevant. not relevant. not relevant
He’s obviously your ex for a reason and there’s obviously a reason you’re hitting the hills as fast as Oprah’s lottery tickets are declining for her Favorite Things Episode.
- Aluminum is a freakin metal... it’s used in antiperspirants to help block sweat .... this is not natural AT ALL. You need to release that sweat! The smell...well that’s another battle...
- Aluminum has been linked to Breast Cancer & an increased in Alzheimer’s disease
- This is messin up your natural flow of things by blocking up hormonal balance
- Too many nastyz/chemicals I can’t pronounce
In conclusion... these four items are hitting my trash bin & I AM ON THE HUNT FOR A NATURAL ALTERNATIVE.
**Actually lemons can be used as a natural deodorant!!! No B.O baby!!! (I've tested this beautiful method, thanks Janice's MOM) But it's not like I'm going to take a lemon out mid road trip, slice it up and then apply it to my pits. Or do this at the gym???
Product junkie in me is on the search for a natural alternative...I might reek a little in the process... but here’s to the first chemical I am taking out of my everyday routine!
Thoughts? Comments? Natural deodorant that I should try/test that is strong enough to neutralize my funk??
