The Best Natural Deodorants For Your Workouts
Body odor is the pits. As someone who spends the majority of her time in a state of sweat, I'm quite paranoid about the odor emanating from my underarms.
Of course, there are a million different options for stinky sweaters like me. I've used 'em all — and now I kind of regret it. As I've made it a point to put good, nourishing foods in my body, I've become more attuned to what I put on my body, too. Many deodorants and antiperspirants contain controversial toxic ingredients. I wouldn't eat a bag of chemicals for lunch, so why have I slathered it on my skin for so many years?
My transition to all-natural skin care has been fairly seamless — it's been easy to find high-quality shampoo without sulfates, lotion without parabens, and cosmetics without phthalates. But deodorant? That's another story. The experience of finding a natural deodorant that works . . . well, it stunk. Literally. I tried (and threw away) a lot of chemical-free deodorants over the past Summer in my quest for a nontoxic formula that would keep me fresh and dry. Finally, I found several keepers that kept me from stinking up the room on a hot Summer day. The best part? They contain good-for-you ingredients that nourish your body while keeping underarm odor at bay.
So I decided to share them for Be-YOU-tiful Week!
