Did you apply deodorant today? No, because you showered? Well, here is the thing; showering doesn’t keep you from sweating. In fact, it makes you sweat more. How? What happens is that when you don’t shower for a day, your pores get blocked. Then when you shower, the pores get unblocked creating a free passage for sweat. This is why, ten minutes after showering you feel sweat trickling down.
And sweat smells too. So, apply your deodorants. If you can’t because of some allergies, then we have some natural alternatives for you.
1. Lemon Juice
Lemon contains citric acid. When you apply lemon juice to your armpits, the citric acid eliminates all the bacteria that can lead to odor. Don’t apply the lemon directly though. First, put it in the fridge. This is optional but it gives an extra cool effect. Then, squeeze our one teaspoon lemon juice. Dip a cotton ball in it. Apply it on the armpits.
Alum or as we call it phitkari has many benefits attached to it. The benefits range from cleaning the drinking water to clearing out acne. But, you can use it for your sweat odors as well.
3. Essential Oils
The only problem with essential oils is that it wears off. You need to keep touching it up. But these are the safest options because it is fairly rare to be allergic to oils.
4. Baking soda & cornstarch
Available in your daily kitchen items, you will need to prepare it for use, Take the powder, one-eighth of a teaspoon. Mix it with water and apply to the armpits.
Plus, if you don’t even want to sweat, in that case, you can make an antiperspirant from this too. For this, you will need to mix one part baking soda and six parts cornstarch. Keep it in powder form. Now, all you need to do is, dust it under your arm
5. Aloe Vera
Aloe vera, just like alum has many uses. It has antibacterial as well as antiseptic properties. Not just that, it is also the most affordable option. All you need is a small pot and you can grow your own aloe vera. Since it grows in large quantities, you might never have to buy a deodorant either. Every day, you can cut a small piece from the plant and apply the gel to the armpits. You can also store the gel in a bottle as well for prolonged use.
