Want to be healthier but nervous to try natural deodorants? Is the risk of odor making you hesitate? Or have you tried one after another and found that it simply “just doesn’t work for you”?

Now is the time to face your fears! Take advantage of the quarantine period by armpit detoxing!

Armpit detoxing? What’s that?

Basically, armpit detoxing means letting your underarms breathe by going deodorant-free for a few days before switching to natural.

And with the whole world social distancing (No sweat-inducing morning commutes! No uncomfortable corporate attires! No one can smell you from Zoom!), there’s no better time than now to do it.

Is it really necessary?

Yes. Antiperspirants clog your pores and block your sweat glands,¹ preventing your underarms from sweating—which is a normal bodily function.

We need to sweat. It’s our body’s natural way of releasing toxins and regulating our body temperature. Besides, sweat itself has no odor. It’s the bacteria living in your armpits rent-free that feed on sweat, causing body odor.²

Doing an armpit detox helps tame odor-causing bacteria, removes toxins & impurities from your skin, and restores your armpit’s natural pH levels, making for a better, more effective transition to cleaner deodorants.

As a matter of fact, people who have tried detoxing their pits reported having less sweat, less irritation, and less odor.³

So how do I do it?

It’s really easy! Here are 3 simple steps:

  1. Start your day with a cooling morning shower.
  2. Skip using deodorants and other underarm products.
  3. Set aside scrubbing, plucking and shaving. 

Bonus tip: To sweep away any leftover odor-causing bacteria, apply Human Nature Balancing Face Toner on your armpits after cleansing.

Just repeat for 3-5 days, and that’s it!

Maintaining the balance

Now that the balance has been restored, it’s time to protect your pits by battling odor naturally without compromises. 

Fight odor-causing bacteria without clogging your pores and risking irritation using Human Nature’s genuinely natural deodorants free from harsh chemicals that darken underarm skin or cause long-term health problems.
