Find The Right Deodorant for Your Skin

Been using the best, the most powerful or the most scented deodorants but haven’t achieved the purpose? Here’s the prefect deodorant choosing guide revealed!

I tried so many of them but was miserable when it came to wearing a sleeveless shirt. Think, I live in Malaysia, a very tropical country. It is basically summer all year long! (I know you are a bit jealous, and I do not blame you for that 😉 )Hence I feel for you and want to put an end to your misery too! You could now stay sleeveless, strapless or get close anytime you want to! Today, on OiB, I shall also introduce you to one of my very own DIY recipe for a nature inspired deodorant as well.

There are many different types of deodorants available in the market. Some are chemically strong while others are organic in nature. There are also some which provide additional skincare factors such as repairing under arms skin, reducing rashes, irritation, black patches and itchiness. These are carefully formulated skincare deodorants which are very dually beneficial. Organic deodorants also stay long but they cannot mostly preserve your baby skin while people who want to be naturally beautiful, use deodorants that are most inspired by nature.

I have already mentioned here a excellent DIY deodorant a few month back. For more information and alternative, have a look at my benzoin Oil guide.

Deodorants or antiperspirants now control the bacteria or the breaking down of bacteria to reduce or eliminate the smell in addition to overpowering them with their own good fragrance. There are also some highly formulated deodorants that help the skin to recover as well.

The right one to choose should have the following:

  • It is recommended to use a roll-on for greater coverage and longer absorbed protection.
  • Use the ones formulated by doctors
  • Look for certified safe cosmetics seal
  • Choose rose or citrus influenced smells as they are stronger and much more natural
  • Don’t pick brands that list general ‘fragrances’ as ingredient, they are probably hiding hormone-disrupting scents being used.
  • Check for a low skin deep hazard ranking as low as zero
  • Aloe-vera and mineral extracts are additional features you should seek.

Make Your Own

If you think natural deodorants don’t work, then you better try this DIY formula which is a great skincare formula deodorant as well.

⇔ Ingredients:

Here’s what you need:

⇔ Direction:

  1. Take ¼ cup of baking soda and ¼ cup of cornstarch and mix it in a bowl
  2. Next, mix 6 tablespoons of coconut oil in it until they are well mixed and add any oils if you want to.
  3. Lastly, store this in a small jar or any deodorant bottle for use and enjoy your DIY deodorant well!

Now it benefitted my skin as well as reduced the odor thanks to the oil fragrances I added in it. The choice remains on people whether they would want to invest in making one such aluminum free deodorant or if they want to keep using those hard-on-skin deodorants that fly away in just a few minutes.

Think, do you want to question me or do you want others to question your hygienic habits?

Honey contributes to a younger, smoother complexion without any additions or additives, and is perfect for every skin type. You already know how beneficial it is for dry skin as well as dry hair. The beautifying benefits of honey can be experienced by even the most sensitive, delicate, inflamed or acne-prone skin.

NOTE: Be sure to use raw, unprocessed honey and your beauty routine will never be the same…

3 WAYS HONEY CAN BEAUTIFY YOUR SKIN

FOR ACNE + IRRITATION:

Honey is a potent antibiotic and antibacterial that acts both internally and externally. Externally, it works to disinfect as well as heal wounds, burns, eczema, acne and other skin irritations. One of the leading causes of acne is bacteria in the pores, so using a potent yet gentle antibacterial such as honey is incredibly effective in treating sensitive or acne-prone skin.

Manuka Honey Spot Treatment:
A little goes a long way. Simply replace your face wash with honey. Apply about 1 teaspoon of honey to the face and skin and gently massage the in small circular motions. For more pore-penetration, simply allow the honey to remain on skin for a longer period of time before rinsing.

For spot treatment, simply apply honey to inflamed area and let sit for about 20 minutes before rinsing.

FOR ANTI-AGING

Honey is full of probiotics, antioxidants, nutrients and enzymes, making it incredibly nourishing and the perfect aid in anti-aging – both internally and externally. Used alone it is an effective way to help plump and hydrate the skin, and prevent free-radical damage. Adding other potent superfoods, like turmeric, compliments and strengthens honey’s anti-aging powers.

Honey Turmeric Anti-Aging Mask:

  • 1 egg white
  • 1 tsp raw honey
  • 1 probiotic capsule, opened
  • 1 turmeric capsule, opened

Combine all ingredients well and massage over the face and neck. Allow to sit for about 20-30 minutes, then rinse.

HYDRATE + EXFOLIATE

Honey’s naturally occurring probiotics and enzymes make it a wonderful exfoliator without stripping the skin of moisture or its sensitive oil barrier. Honey is a potent humectant- meaning it can both draw out and retain moisture, hydrating and plumping the skin – making it gentle enough to use daily to promote clear, bright skin without drying.

Tumeric…! Is that familiar?! Oh Yes 😉 Recall our delicious turmeric latte recipe shared on OiB a few weeks back.

Yogurt Honey Hydrating Scrub:

  • 2 Tbsp of raw honey
  • 1 Tbsp yogurt (optional)
  • 1 Tbsp almond or coconut oil
  • For the face: 1/4 cup baking soda
  • For the body: 1/4 cup fine coffee grinds

NOTE: Milk? Really! And the answer is yes. The milk contains in yogurt makes it a natural facial cleanser! And, almond milk , an nutritious alternative, is known to be high in vitamin E, which contains antioxidant properties essential to your skin’s health!

Combine all ingredients and gently massage over the face and or body, paying particular attention to rough or dry areas and using the appropriate exfoliant. Allow to remain on skin for a few minutes and rinse. Skin should be smooth, soft and hydrated.

And, that’s will be all today on OiB. You will never look at honey the same way, right? What about you? I am curious to know your usual beauty routine when it comes to honey. I know there are many other properties.

Feel free to share yours. Wishing you all a beautiful day and a happy smile 😉
