Now that I’m officially back to blogging I thought I’d start a new category dedicated to beauty. For starters if you don’t already have ACV (Apple Cider Vinegar) in your pantry it’s definitely time to go out and grab you a bottle, preferably Braggs Organic Apple Cider Vinegar. There are tons of health benefits from using ACV, everything from weight loss to relieving heartburn. Another must have in your pantry is Bentonite Clay. Bentonite Clay also has tons of natural benefits, especially when you mix with ACV.
For starters lets talk underarm funk and the many deodorant options out there both antiperspirant and natural.
Did you know the common antiperspirant deodorant is loaded with toxic ingredients like Aluminum, Triclosan, Parabens, Propylene Glycol, Phthalates? When I first started on my quest to live a more natural and chemical free lifestyle one of the first regimens I tweaked was switching from an antiperspirant deodorant to a more natural aluminum free option. I’ve yet to find an option that works as well as I would like. I’ve found that some are better than the competition ex. Pit Paste, Desert Natural. But I’ve never truly felt 100% in the clear of stinky underarms especially in the summer 100+ degree weather.
That was until I came across this great recipe for an armpit detox. It’s an easy, 10 minute weekly regimen that will have you stink free and not needing to use any deodorant at all.
All you need is 1 TBSP of ACV + 1 TBSP of Bentonite Clay. Mix using a wooden spoon and glass bowl then apply to your pits and leave on for 10 minutes then shower. Make this a weekly detox routine.
