Do you use Antiperspirant or Deodorant

Do you use Antiperspirant or Deodorant?

When we are a pre-teen our parents kindly give us a nudge and we head off to the drug store or department store and stare at the shelves of antiperspirant. We smell a few and pick our favourite.

I did exactly that, but I had more than one favourite, I had about 4 or 5. I had a bit of an obsession with antiperspirant. However, a few years ago when my sister was diagnosed with cancer, I decided to take a closer look at ways I can improve my health.

I decided to ditch my antiperspirant for deodorant. Why?
When I actually looked at the ingredients in the products I was using…. I wasn’t shocked, but boy was I disappointed.

The products contained:

  • Parabens
  • Aluminum
  • Chemical Fragrances

Google the ingredients, would you want to have these in your products?

Shortly after making the switch the headaches I was having…. disappeared. I figured the headaches were likely from the chemical fragrance in my antiperspirant.

I don’t regret making the switch. It was difficult, but worth it. Check out my Facebook video about my transition from deodorant to antiperspirant.
