If You've Been Waiting for the Right Time to Transition to a Natural Deodorant, This Is It squib
Is there ever a good time to transition from an antiperspirant to a natural deodorant? Not really, but while you're sitting in isolation with very little to no human interaction, it's as good a time as any. What I'm about to say is not the least bit glamorous, nor is it your typical self-care recommendation, but it's still a valid beauty tip from me to you to occupy your time at home.
Natural deodorants - the kind that doesn't contain aluminum in the formula - take a little while for your body to get used to. We call this the "transitional phase" and it involves detoxing your underarms of the aluminum "plugs" in your glands that kept you from sweating all this time. Hence the B.O. Now here's the semi-bad news: this phase can take anywhere from two to four weeks to complete. Bummer, I know, but that's why social distancing is the perfect opportunity to make the change.
In due time if you persevere through the stink, your body will adapt to the natural deodorant and allow the botanical odor blockers to work their magic. Make no mistake, natural deodorants don't stop you from sweating, but they will keep you smelling nice for when it is time to go back outside and hug your friends once more.
