After using the new deodorant for a couple of days, I have noticed that I am sweating a lot more. I started noticing this yesterday but today it is in full blast! I read online that this is part of the detoxing phase because your sweat glands are trying to get rid of all the toxins that have been building up. As a result, I am going to smell bad for a couple of days. I think it’s definitely worth it, especially after seeing my body react to changing products. I have not seen a noticeable change in my eczema but maybe I will down the line!
Over the weekend I went into a market and found a Lavender + Eucalyptus + Rosemary deodorant that is paraben, sulfate, fragrance, etc etc free! I decided to buy and and try it out. I took a look at how the deodorant I used to use (Dove Anti Perspirant Restore Blue Fig & Orange Blossom) and realized it scored the highest on the ThinkDirty app – meaning that it is extremely dirty and has many allergens/chemicals. I don’t know if deodorant can affect my eczema but I decided it was worth a try.
