Let’s talk about those pits!
It’s been a running joke in our household and amongst my close friends. I have (what we call) #PitProbs and it all started during an ER visit back in April (you might recall my loopy hospital bed posts). I won’t get into all of the nitty-gritty details, but I’ve talked about these “health problems” that I’ve been dealing with over the last six months. What I thought was a rash (that popped up almost ten years ago), turned into severely infected sweat glands and an even bigger rash that has been attacking my skin for years… and it all started in the pits – not only has it been painful, but it’s an eyesore to look at. Gross, I know, but that’s what prompted me to change my deodorant along with my detergent, body lotion and wash. Slowly, but surely, I’ve been switching our family over to more non-toxic products, and I have to admit, we haven’t been disappointed.
You all know I love a good beauty product, and when I saw that Anthropology, Sephora and Nordstrom were carrying Kopari Beauty Aluminum Free Coconut Deodorant, I decided to give it a shot. Those retailers always sell the best of the best, and their reviews by customers always seem to be honest! This is the first non-toxic, pure coconut oil, 100% plant-based deodorant that is free of aluminum, baking soda, silicone, phthalate that I’ve ever tried. I thought for sure; I would have to go through that “pit detoxifying” phase where you’re trying out every natural deodorant, but that hasn’t been the case with Kopari Beauty.
Let’s get one thing straight… I am a sweater! I workout, I’m outside with the kiddos all the time, I run outdoors, and I’m client facing when doing makeup + hair! Kopari Beauty leaves me feeling fresh and clean and most of all, it does not irritate my skin like the deodorants that I used in the past. It’s moisturizing, healing, refreshing, smells divine without giving you that ‘icky’ smell that some deodorants can leave as the day goes on, and it does not leave stains.
Guess what… since switching to an aluminum free deodorant, I no longer have to take my meds or use my prescription ointments. What I’ve learned is that the aluminum in the deodorants that I was previously using was blocking my sweat glands and not allowing my body to naturally sweat. As we all know, sweating is good – it’s the way that our body detoxifies and releases those nasty toxins. In my case, those toxins were sitting right below the skin’s surface causing these awful rashes and cysts that landed me in the ER.
