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.

The Benzoin Oil, The Best of Aromatherapy

My mind is constantly doing overtime. Even when I’m trying to relax I always seem to be thinking about work and family, or things I must do. Sound familiar? If so then you’ll share my pain when I speak about the inconvenience of restless nights or waking up in the middle of the night and being unable to sleep. The lack of sleep was soon taking its toll and as I may not quite be an oil painting in the looks department then I could do with as much so called beauty sleep as possible 😉

What is Benzoin Oil?

Benzoin oil is extracted from resin of the Styrax Benzoin tree. Benzoin oil has been of use for many years and due to its range of diverse properties it has found to be of use all over the world for many different causes. It has been used historically for medicinal purposes.

Some of the properties of Benzoin oil include:

  • Aromatic
  • Golden coloured
  • Thick resinous oil

The properties of Benzoin oil and the diversity of uses make it a popular choice for treating everyday ailments and issues which you all may experience in life.

Common uses of Benzoin oil

So, can you think of any occasions where you have seen or heard of Benzoin Oil. If you have great, but if not I’m quite sure the sheer number of different uses may just surprise you. One place Benzoin oil has been used is in religious ceremonies due to the disinfectant and aromatic properties. Some other uses, and It would be interesting to know if you have tried Benzoin oil for these purposes include:

  • Antidepressant
  • Sedative
  • Antiseptic
  • Used in deodorant
  • Anti Inflammatory

Let me sleep !

Despite the various different properties and uses, for me Benzoin oil was my saviour to assist with sleep deprivation. Recall my earlier post on the benefit of essential oils to help fall asleep. I now combine tea and benzoin oil. Easy life 😉

Benzoin Oil Organicisbeautiful.com blogI tried Benzoin Oil and soon enough I was back to getting consistency in my sleeping pattern. Don’t suffer the same and if you are lacking sleep give it a go! As Benzoin oil has an element of tranquilising effects, if you are a student who studies late at night then you may want to consider when you use it.

On the contrary as Benzoin oil acts like a relaxant and sedative it can also go some way in reliving your tension, any anxiety and stress. It assist which optimises the nervous and neurotic systems which when you feel good means you are also feeling happy.

If you suffer from Arthritis you will know how it feels to be in a lot of pain which can also be a contributory factor to lack of sleep. Benzoin oil can provide good pain when applied externally and is absorbed via the skin pores. When you are not in pain you are comfortable which can only increase your chances of falling asleep and getting that good night’s sleep you’ve been waiting so long for.
