Is that deodorant good for you?

No one wants stinking armpits, which is why we use deodorant of course! But is it safe to use? Well, would you eat deodorant? No? So why put it on your skin? If it’s not safe to eat, it’s not good for your skin! Many deodorants have quite a few toxins lurking in them that causes clogged pores, hormonal imbalance, irritated skin, organ problems and or allergic reactions. You may not be experiencing any of these issues as we speak, but that doesn’t mean problems won’t arise in the future.

Aluminum, steareths, propylene gylcol and artificial coloring are just a few toxic ingredients to stay away from! Jason deodorant is a good deodorant to pick up. It has NO aluminum, parabens, phthalates or propylene gycol. Not all natural deodorants work the same for everyone so it could take some time to find the one that works just right for you! I prefer to make my own deodorant because I know the exact ingredients, it’s all natural and affordable!

A few ingredients I like to use in my deodorant potion are Shea butter so it doesn’t clog my pores, Baking soda so it absorbs odor and Bentonite clay to absorb sweat. But before trying to switch over to using natural deodorants, it’s important to detox your armpits first! You can do this by using Bentonite clay and Apple cider vinegar. Mix ingredients together thoroughly and apply it to your armpits. Let it sit for 15 mins before rinsing it off.

I recommend repeating this process for a week to fully detox your arm pits. Apple cider vinegar may cause a burning sensation so adding water or leaving it on for a shorter amount of time would help with that issue.

Benefits of Turmeric and face detoxing

Hello Beauties!

We all at some point, experience unwanted dark spots, acne and or an uneven skin tone. Turmeric can be the cure for all of that and much more! I love to use turmeric under my eyes when I’m experiencing dark circles or as a face mask to help even out my skin tone by erasing blemishes. After making a turmeric face mask my skin instantly feels so amazingly soft and so bright, leaving my skin glowing! So if you have unwanted scars, oily skin and acne, turmeric is the answer for you!

It’s important to always start on a clean face. As I said in my previous post, I love to wash my face with black soap (preferably Raw African Black Soap). I then like to tone my face with my apple cider toning potion, let it dry then apply my turmeric & honey mask (I mix honey and turmeric to the thickness of my liking) and let it sit for 15 mins. I rinse my face with cool water and pat my face dry with a paper towel. I reapply my apple cider toning potion, let it dry and apply my favorite face moisturizer.

Face detoxing can also help you battle acne as well as black heads and should be done daily. A face detox cleanses your pores and improves the skin tone. I love to use Moroccan red clay powder because it’s for sensitive skin and it’s pure powder! It cleanses and purifies my skin, making me glow. I like to add a few capsules of vitamin E because it helps heal acne scars as well as keeping your skin looking ageless! When I do the Moroccan red clay powder mask I do the same process I do with my turmeric mask instead just using Moroccan red clay powder instead.

Is that soap right for you?

Do you ever experience really dry, rough skin after getting out of the shower? The toxins in your soap could be the culprit! Some of the harmful ingredients found in soaps can affect your hormones, cause allergic reactions and dryness. Most soaps on the market eat away at your skin, strips your skin of its natural oils and ages you faster. Sometimes you can still experience dryness after putting tons of lotion on.

So if you aren’t already using Black Soap, next time you go to your local market pick some up! Black Soap treats acne, vanish dark spots, lightly cleanses the skin to prevent stripping you of your natural oils. If you want other than black soap be sure to read ingredients and be aware of harmful toxins that can irritate the skin, such as sodium lauryl which is usually found in detergents, parabens which affect your hormones and diethanolamine which can obstruct nutrients. Black soap promotes smooth, soft and moisturized skin. It has truly been a skin curer for me and my experiences. I hope I’ve been helpful, come check back later for daily tips!
