As strange as it may sound, among the many natural functions of sweat is fighting and eliminating different kinds of infections. Sweat contains a compound called Dermicidin that is known for killing harmful bacteria before they enter your body.
However the usage of antiperspirants causes clogging of the sweat ducts with toxins and aluminum. When this happens, the bacteria on your skin are able to grow and thrive and eventually enter your blood stream and cause serious health issues.
To prevent this from happening, try to avoid using antiperspirants and commercial deodorants as much as you can since they contain well known toxins that are considered harmful and damaging to human health. Some of these toxins have been linked to serious diseases such as Alzheimer’s disease, cancer and even reproductive damage.
However the fact that we need to maintain a good hygiene and take care of our body odor is inevitable. And we are going to present you a new method of doing so, without using any expensive and harmful antiperspirants!
Just as many experts say, there is a natural way to do everything. The method we are going to show you involves using lime. It is cheap, completely safe and has zero side-effects. The best thing about it is that it’s been shown to work even better than commercial products.
How to prepare the natural antiperspirant:
The only thing you’re going to need is a freshly-ripened lime. Take the lime and cut it in half. Take one piece and rub it onto your armpit, then take the other piece and do the same thing on your other armpit. Wait for both of your armpits to dry before you put on a shirt. Congratulations, you’re good to go for a few hours.
You can keep the lime pieces in a marked container and use them a few times.
Why this natural antiperspirant works so well:
As you might know, sweat itself isn’t the thing that causes the bad odor. It is the bacteria and fungi that cause the smell when they are killed by dermicidin. However the bacteria will always be there and reappear, the only thing you can do is slow it’s growth and prevent it from causing real problems.
