Sweat gets a bad rap. We blame it for stink. We accuse it of staining our clothes, and we react in disgust when it appears. But in actuality, sweat is pretty darn awesome and an essential part of being human. No, really. Sweating can be messy (and smelly), but it’s also your body’s natural cooling mechanism.
If you’re a first time Woohoo-her or perhaps still sitting on the fence about making the switch to natural deodorant, then get comfy. Today we’re going to school you on how natural deo works and why your pits will LOVE it. Class is in session!
Our very own cosmetic formulator mastermind, Aaron, used to struggle with using deodorants back in his pre-Woohoo days as they caused extreme irritation under his pits – usually uncomfortable redness and itchiness. If you’ve been blessed with ultra-sensitive skin like Aaron, you understand just how difficult it can be.
Of course, notalldeos are the same. First things first, you need to choose therightdeodorant. If you’ve recently ditched your antiperspirant and are curious to know how to make the most of your natural deo to make it go last the distance, here are a few handy tips.
We love sweating. All the best things in life make you sweaty, and it’s so good for you in so many ways. Sweating is actually a really complex bodily function that helps keep your body temperature regulated and keep you healthy. Who would’ve thought!?
Sweat cops a lot of flack. But do you really know the ins and outs of your body? Sweat is essential in the running of your body to ensure you don’t overheat, keeps your skin moisturised and fights off infections by keeping your immune system strong. It’s a clever bodily function that we think deserves a whole lot more lovin’.
While the premise of antiperspirant seems simple – you put it underneath your arms for the ultimate protection against the dreaded stink – using this daily staple can be a whole ‘nother story especially when it comes to those narky aerosol cans.
