Antiperspirant vs Natural Deodorant

There is a huge difference when it comes to antiperspirants in comparison to deodorants. Although the switch is very personal, there are many reasons as to why one would want to transition to a natural deodorant. Antiperspirants block your body’s ability to perspire, trapping all of the sweat that your body produces from being exposed out of the body. This comes with many health concerns, as this antiperspirant isn’t allowing your body to respond naturally. When sweat is being blocked in the body, bacteria, along with the toxic chemicals in that antiperspirant are being blocked, causing issues to the endocrine system, and lymph system as your body cannot detox properly. Antiperspirants have been linked to DNA mutations, which lead to the growth of cancer cells. As many have heard, aluminum is the most popular ingredient in these antiperspirant deodorants that is linked to multiple health risks, specifically breast cancer. As reported, those who use antiperspirants showed significant amounts of aluminum in the breast tissues in comparison to the bloodstream, which is worrisome to those who …

Why Go Buck Naked

Our skin is the largest organ of the body and we need to take care of it. This is why what you put on your skin is almost more important than what you eat. When we eat something unhealthy, the digestive system will go through and do its job, either excreting the chemicals, breaking them down, or putting them in the bloodstream.

Always wash your face in the morning, and before you go to bed with clean products. I use BuckNaked soap for this, as it is a nautral, and local product in which I have found to work well for me. They stay true to their labeling, and really take their time to create …

Natural Hair Care

When it comes to having beautiful hair, just like everything else, the most important remedy is a clean diet. Those Sugar Bear gummies are probably the last thing you want to resort to. Chemical free products are really important as they help to protect your hair. Here are some tips when trying to grow your hair naturally:   Coconut oil heals everything- it’s a fact. Depending on your type of hair, adding coconut oil from the ears down to your ends before a shower is a great way for extra nourishment. You can leave this in your hair for as long as you want, and then wash it out well in the shower. I also put coconut oil in my hair after a shower, because it is the cleanest leave-in conditioner out there. Clean shampoo and conditioner makes a huge difference! Your average shampoo, like Pantene, contains so many chemicals that it not only damages your hair in the long run, it also causes health issues. There are toxic chemicals like: Proplyparaben, isobutene, and DMDM …
