2 Min Read

Studies show that deodorants have chemicals such as Triclosan , Phthalates and Parabens all of which can cause breast cancer. Body odor is inevitable but can be dealt with deodorant free as well. An armpit cleanse includes drinking plenty of water, using a loofa, avoiding the use of razors and deodorants and other natural tips to counter body odor.

Curejoy Expert Dipti Mothay Explains:

Armpits are the most common place to develop body odor. The armpits provide a warm and moist environment for bacteria to thrive and sweat glands in this region produce extra proteins and oily substances to feed them. As an offensive body odor can be extremely uncomfortable and embarrassing, many people opt for antiperspirants and deodorants.

But studies have shown that many toxic chemicals could be present in antiperspirants and deodorants, making them harmful. The Breast Cancer Fund (BCF) reported, that common ingredients such as Triclosan , Phthalates and Parabens in these products may cause breast cancer.

What is an armpit cleanse?

Armpit cleanse is more than just changing your deodorant. It’s also a way to detox your body and may help reduce your risk of breast cancer.

How to Do an Armpit Cleanse- Naturally?

-Stop using any chemical based deodorants; instead go for natural cleansers and herbal deodorants.

-Use a loofah while taking a shower, as regular exfoliation helps get rid of the sebum and dead skin remnants in the armpits. You can use a piece of ginger to scrub the area.

-To cleanse the armpits, a paste made of one teaspoon of baking soda and water can be applied on your armpits. Leave it for twenty minutes and wash it off.

-You can also use fresh lemon juice and dilute it with a small quantity of water.  Apply the liquid on your armpits. Leave it for twenty minutes and wash it off. The citric acid will cleanse the armpits and kill the bacteria. It will also improve body odor.

-Drink lots of water as it will naturally detoxify the entire body.

-Avoid using razors and harsh chemicals on the skin.

-It is advisable to avoid certain foods such as curry, garlic, onion and other strong spices that can stimulate sweating and make the sweat smelly.

And what recent studies have shown is a correlation between breast cancer and regular use of antiperspirants. The risk increases even more if the antiperspirant is used immediately after shaving.Before there was a belief that the deodorant is much safer than the antiperspirant.Recently, a few studies have confirmed the association of parabens, with breast cancer. The parabens are contained in many deodorants. A simple example, is the autopsy of a woman dying from breast cancer, in which high amount of parabens were found in her breast tissue.Stages of breast cancer:

I like Arm & Hammer Essentials deororant. Without the aluminum it is not an antiperspirant ... (is that how it's spelled? ) Works great!

I seldom wore deodorant before my breast cancer -- it has always given me hives. Nobody can say what causes cancer definitively. Nobody.

Maghanap ka ng alternative to deodorant. Or gamit ka ng human nature.

Anytime, but usually after I bathe. I have also rubbed it on when I've forgotten and it works right away. I cut it in half and use it for at least a week just squeezing it enough to burst some pulp to make a little juice. I put it open side down in a small bowl in the door of the fridge.

I use fresh lime and I have no odor. It's the only natural item I have found that works for me:)

Jason's is a really good one. Smells great too. Remember tho going from reg deodorant to all natural there is a difference in how it feels and how long it last. But well worth it!!
