You all know that being 150 years old, different issues arise. I’ve chatted about this subject over on Instagram and had an OVERWHELMING response. It was a really hot topic. You guys……. true blue…. us mid-lifers have really stinky armpits. ????
(Let me start this post off by saying, I’m not a medical doctor. I have not at all backed up this post with extensive medical research. I’m only sharing my own experiences and my own personal discussions I’ve had with friends. So, basically, don’t send the “you’re-not-a-doctor police” ????????♀️ after me because, I know. I’m not claiming to be one.)
I need to give you some back history and the reason for this post. I have a friend who was diagnosed with breast cancer several years back. At the first appointment after her diagnosis, the doctor asked her what type of deodorant/antiperspirants she used. Because, he believes there is a direct link between antiperspirants and breast cancer.
(Again…. don’t send the “you’re-not-a-doctor police” ????????♀️over here because I KNOW. I’m passing on some information that I follow, because in my book, I would rather be safe than sorry.)
We all know that “deodorants” prevent us from stinking up the joint, and “antiperspirants” prevent us from sweating like a pig. ???? Specifically, the ingredient in antiperspirants that stop perspiration is the metal, aluminum. One problem with aluminum is that it temporarily plugs our sweat ducts under our arms.
Well……where do the toxins go that are being released if our sweat ducts are clogged? ????
Long story short, my friend’s oncologist recommended she use the Crystal Body Deodorant Stick that will allow her body to properly perspire but will control stinkage. To this day, she still uses it. I used the Crystal stick for several years and it worked extremely well for me….. for a while.
I’m now 150 years old and just downright stink. ???? I don’t know if it is “The Menopause” (which according to my doctor I haven’t even begun – ????) or what. But that crystal doesn’t control my current level of armpit stinkage. ????
I smell like a hog barn. ????????????
Remember… we all have been clogging up our sweat ducts for years with different products. My research suggested that natural deodorants work best after an armpit detox. (Don’t even… ????????♀️) An armpit detox involves pulling out all of the nasties by using a clay mask.
I found that Aztec Secret Indian Healing Clay is perfect for an armpit detox. I won’t go into all of the benefits of this healing clay, but it has multiple uses. Along with the armpit ???? detox, I mix it with raw apple cider vinegar and use it on my face. It gives me an instant tightening of my skin. So even if you don’t smell, I highly recommend it for that. It’s less than $10.
Because I truly cannot be the only one with armpits that smell like a hog barn, ???? I wanted to share my results with you. Through all of my own personal trials and tribulations of different brands of deodorant, I have found Native Deodorant to be my tried and true favorite. They have different scents to choose from and even one that is unscented if you are into that. I’ve been using the coconut/vanilla scent, but want to order lavender/rose next. I, obviously, still sweat (it’s a good thing) but I do not smell. ???? And for the record. I’ve done one armpit detox before I started using Native and another one this past weekend. Because… hey…it’s a new year! Let’s start fresh.
Obviously, your results may be different than mine. This is my personal experience with my own hog barn issues, but so far so good. It will be interesting to see what happens as time goes on. I will for sure keep you posted.
Thank you so much for stopping by and listening to my old lady complaints. But, hey… if I can help someone else out, I’m all for it! I pledge my love! ❤️
Buh bye now, said in an old lady’s voice who is wondering what else I can detox. ????
