The trick that we are going to talk about in this article may sound odd at first to many, but after we are done explaining it’s benefits, it will sure earn it’s place on your daily healthy routine.
For starters, we all know that sweating is a natural process which creates dermacidin, that destroys harmful bacteria and infections. Well the bad odor which comes from sweating is actually the bacteria and fungi that have survived the attacks of dermacidin, and thrive and multiply around the armpits.
The most common go-to solutions for millions of people around the world when it comes to sweating and odor is antiperspirants, but we all know that they can be extremely dangerous, clog the sweat ducts, irritate the skin, leave toxins in the skin, and in time, play a huge role in the formation of cancerous cells in our bodies. In fact, some of the more serious health conditions scientists have linked to antiperspirants were:
- Alzheimer’s Disease
- Breast Cancer
- Allergic Reactions
- Hormone Disruptions
- Armpit Microbiome Changes
In addition to this, deodorants only help mask the odor, thanks to all the synthetic perfumes stored inside the bottle. Deodorants however don’t help eliminate bacteria in any way, and actually clogs the pores, creating even a bigger problem.
That is why we are going to show you how to naturally neutralize body odor, and throw away antiperspirants and deodorants. All you need is a few freshly ripened limes. For starters, take one, cut it in half, and rub its pieces unto the armpits.
Let your armpits air dry, before putting on clothes. This is all you need, and it is going to keep your armpits fresh for a few hours. The lime juice is a powerful antibacterial substance which not only masks the bad odor, but doesn’t clog your pores and destroys the bacteria.
