Has your deodorant failed to keep you odor-free? There are ways to prevent this from happening, and an armpit detox can be your secret weapon.
Antiperspirant is classified as an over-the-counter drug in both Canada and the United States. If you have been using antiperspirant since you were a preteen, your body will definitely be dependent on it.
You may go a couple of days or even a week without noticing much difference between your antiperspirant and natural deodorant.
This is due to the fact that the aluminum compounds in antiperspirant form a gel-like plug and constrict your pores in the underarm. This prevents you from sweating and getting wet and takes time to clear out.
When you stop using antiperspirant you will experience a substantial increase in growth of odor-causing bacteria in the underarm area.
You may also feel additional moisture because your body is sweating, which is completely normal and natural.
