Why You Should Detox Your Armpits (And How To Detox Them)

For most of my life I’ve used conventional deodorants, they worked and smelled nice. Sometimes I would spend around 30 minutes at the store smelling different deodorants until I found a new smell I loved. I never thought much about it until I started researching the ingredients in most of the products my family uses.

When I start looking into deodorants I learned two very important things, how antiperspirants work and all the toxic chemicals used in conventional deodorants. Before I tell you why you should detox your armpits and how to detox them, you should understand why it’s best to stay away from most antiperspirants and deodorants.

Antiperspirants are made to reduce the production of sweat. Their active ingredient is aluminum salts which dissolve into your skin’s surface creating a barrier. It basically blocks your sweat glands temporarily and reduces the amount of sweat released. Your body sweats for a reason, blocking sweat is not the right solution.
