Ok, I cannot claim that this is the absolute best thing out there, but it is the best thing that I’ve found! If you’re looking for an alternative deodorant, try using after shave.
Yeah, I thought it sounded strange, too. But after I tried it and had gone an entire day without stinking and without dealing with “coconut oil” pits, I became an instant fan. Bye-bye, deodorant. Bring on the after shave!
This is a great alternative to all-natural deodorants. Now, I like the concept of natural deodorant (chemical free, aluminum free) but I never liked the feel of natural deodorants. They tend to feel greasy. After shave is not greasy! And, it is also chemical free. Many after shaves are made with three or four ingredients: that’s it. It dries on your skin within a few moments and the scent lasts all day. Boom. Problem solved.
Traditional deodorants actually stop you from sweating. This is NOT healthy. Your body needs to sweat in order to rid itself of toxins. So sweating is a GOOD thing. The trick is: finding a way to keep sweating without smelling. Well, I think after shave is a great answer.
Now, I am thankful that my husband has a nice selection of after shaves (he is an avid wet-shaver) so because of that, I have a number of lovely scents at my disposal. However, if you have never owned after shave before, it can be found online from many different artisan companies who make all-natural, chemical free products, (I love Stirling Soap Co. products) and it is NOT expensive.
So, all this is to say: I’ve found an amazing alternative to nasty-feeling deodorants and just wanted to share it with you.
