Tips and Tricks for Transitioning to a Natural Deodorant

Jan 6, 2023

One of the major factors that promote people to switch to natural deodorant is the riding risk of aluminum, which plugs the sweat ducts to prevent perspiration. In the case of natural deodorants, our body’s functions are allowed to work naturally. The excretory and cooling systems also work more effectively when their processes are not interrupted by chemical substances which are likely to be contained in conventional deodorants. If you have been using standard deodorants or antiperspirants for a while, your skin might need some time to adjust to a natural, aluminum free deodorant. For most, Aukai Body premium natural deodorants work right away. For those who need a little help with the transition, here are a few tips and tricks that might help you in switching over to Aukai Body premium natural deodorants:

1. Plan your transition wisely!

For few, your body can take up to 4 weeks to adjust and get in a good groove with natural deodorants. Although all your efforts will be worth it, you must plan your transition dates wisely. If you have an important event coming up in the near dates which might tempt you to pick your old conventional deodorant back, you might want to postpone your plans to shift to the natural route when it’s more convenient. The path to adjusting your body to natural deodorants is extremely rewarding to your body if you’re consistent with your natural deodorant and allow your body to detox those chemicals out of your system!

2. Detox your body

Antiperspirants work by blocking the sweat pores to prevent sweating. As your sweat pores have been clogged by aluminium for years, you need to be patient with them as they purge until returning to their natural processes. Using a detox mask or apple cider vinegar for the underarms might help you get through this process because it helps in pulling out all the impurities and toxins from the body letting it find its balance faster. For some, ‘before it gets better, it is going to get worse’, so set your expectations right!

3. Clean well

You can use a loofa or exfoliating soap to gently exfoliate your underarm areas to help draw impurities out of your body better and faster! You must dry your armpits, finger/applicator well before applying a natural deodorant because these deodorants are mostly oil-based. Since water and oil don’t mix, applying a natural deodorant on wet skin might not be as effective in deodorizing your underarms.

4. Drink lots of water!

Staying hydrated can “water down” your sweat making it less odorous. This is because water dissolves the toxins or flushes them out of your system and when the toxins are dissolved, the odor automatically reduces easing the process a bit for you.

5. Choose the right natural deodorant

This could be the easiest or hardest part of your transition journey depending upon your perspective. There are a variety of natural deodorants available with different ingredients, scents and benefits. You must choose the one that suits your skin as well as your taste rightly. One must remember, that every individual’s body has its own microbiome, hence, what suits your friend might not work for you. Keep in mind that if you do have sensitive skin you must steer clear of deodorants that contain baking soda for they can cause irritation and rashes due to changing the pH of the skin vastly. Aukai Body premium natural deodorants are proud to be baking soda, paraben, aluminum and cruelty-FREE and suit most skin types!
