Why you need an armpit detox and how to do it

Ever tried a natural deodorant only to discover that you still smell like a teenage boy's gym locker (no offence, fellas!)?

We have the perfect solution for your pungent predicament: meet the Armpit Detox Mask!

A mega-magnet that helps bid adieu to the build-up of unwanted product from your pits (primarily aluminium salts) left behind by conventional antiperspirants.

Armpit Detox = Antiperspirant Cleanse

What's the deal with all this antiperspirant hullabaloo, you ask?

First off, loads of folks are hopping on the natural deodorant train for a whole slew of personal reasons.

Traditional antiperspirants with aluminium salts and other ingredients like triclosan can often be party poopers for your pits.

Not only do some leave nasty yellow stains on your clothes but they may also clog your pores, which might interrupt the body’s natural sweating process.

Little known fact: Sweating is fabulous for your body.

Think of sweating as your personal, all-natural air-con, keeping you cool and comfortable when things heat up. This makes it a perfect workout buddy that can improve circulation and give your skin that enviable post-exercise glow.

It’s also a marvellous detox diva, helping your body remove trace amounts of heavy metals.

So, while sweating can be messy (and smelly), if you didn’t sweat, your body would literally cook from the inside out. Yikes.

Switch to natural deodorant faster

An armpit detox is the fastest way to kick out unwanted antiperspirant or deodorant build-up squatting in your pits after years of use.

For half of you, switching from aluminium-based antiperspirant to natural deodorant is as smooth as fresh peanut butter. Your natural deodorant works like a charm, and you strut around without a second thought for your pits.

But for the other 50%, your pits may not be ready for the limelight. Luckily, an armpit detox can unleash your natural deodorant's full potential and help you triumph over smelly BO.

Has your natural deodorant suddenly stopped working?

OK, so you’ve cleansed your body of antiperspirant build-up and you've been rockin' your natural deodorant for a while. But suddenly, it's like your pits are hosting a stink-a-thon.

What the?!

Well, sometimes your body chemistry likes to play musical chairs, and factors like stress, hormones, and the food you eat can cause a perspiration party that has been invaded by unwanted guests that your natural deodorant isn't quite prepared for.

The Armpit Detox Mask is particularly helpful if your natural deo has suddenly called it quits, as it can quickly banish odour-causing bacteria and help rebalance your skin barrier.

It's a bit like hitting the reset button on your underarms, giving your natural deodorant a clean slate to work its magic.

The Benefits of an Armpit Detox

  1. Bye-bye stench: Eliminates odour-causing bacteria and allows ‘good’ bacteria to replenish. A healthy skin microbiome = less stink!
  2. Adios, aluminium: Deep cleansing clears out blocked sweat glands caused by aluminium-based antiperspirants. Because everyone's sweat should flow freely, right?
  3. Smooth operator:Exfoliates the skin, revealing smoother, healthier underarms.
  4. Goodbye, pesky redness:Supports a healthy skin barrier to minimise the appearance of redness and cranky skin.
  5. Pore-perfect: Unclogging pores can reduce ingrown hairs and minimise the appearance of enlarged pores.
  6. pH perfection:Restores your pits' natural pH balance, leading to more effective natural deodorant use.
  7. Pit party:Embracing natural options can support your skin’s overall health. It's a celebration for your pits, and everyone's invited (except for the bacterial baddies, of course)!

How to use an Armpit Detox Mask

Ready to treat your underarms to some well-deserved TLC? Here's a step-by-step guide to detoxing your pits:

  1. Start with clean, dry armpits and hands.
  2. Using your fingers spread a small amount on the underarm area.
  3. Relax for 10 to 15 minutes while the mask does its thing, deeply cleansing your armpits.
  4. Wash off in the shower or bath.
  5. For best results when first switching to natural deodorant, use the mask every day for up to 14 days (7 works great for most people).

Once you've completed your initial detox, use the mask once per week (or whenever you feel like it!) to keep your armpits in tip-top shape.
