I hope everyone had an amazing weekend. We were busy with sporting events but spent a lot of time outside together as a family. I know I have shared many times about my sensitive skin and how it overreacts to almost anything I put on it. I basically have the Mariah Carey of skin-diva status! Can we say high maintenance and sensitive! My skin tends to do better with products that have fewer and more natural ingredients.
Last month my armpits started to itch and I developed a rash. I couldn’t figure out what the issue was. Itchy pits while grocery shopping or at your kids’ baseball game isn’t exactly winning me any friend points! I had been using the same antiperspirant since I was 13 and never changed. What was the deal? I quit using the antiperspirant for a few days and the itch went away but I was left with smelly sweaty pits. This is when I decided switching to natural deodorant may be a good idea. It was a bit of a process to find one I loved, but I can’t say enough positive things about Kopari natural deodorant. I love so many of their other products like the coconut melt and lip gloss, so choosing their natural deodorant was a no brainer.
Why Should You Try Switching to Natural Deodorant?
Honestly, the less chemicals we use in and on our bodies the better. My rash prompted me to change my deodorant and other chemically laced products in my house. It is a process, but slowly we have been switching over to more non-toxic products. What I love about Kopari deodorant is that it is non-toxic, aluminum free, paraben free and that it’s completely plant-based with natural ingredients such as coconut water and sage oil. You can check out more about it in this video.
The first thing I noticed when I opened the container is the smell. My photographer even laughed because I couldn’t stop smelling the deodorant! It smells fresh and feels cool upon application. I also loved that it was clear and did not stain my clothes or leave a residue. You can read all the amazing reviews and why people are loving this natural deodorant here.

Let’s Talk Detox
Repeat after me: It’s OK to sweat- this is a natural bodily function that detoxifies our body. Instead of clogging up your pores with harmful chemicals like aluminum and parbens, Kopari allows your skin to breath. When your sweat glands are free of aluminum, they may be extra sweaty for a day or two while your body is learning to regulate itself. Sometimes #thetruthstinks but the more you move your body and sweat the shorter this armpit detox period will be. Just remember, this is a positive experience for your body and it will be worth it after a few days.
Let me know if you have gone the au natural route when it comes to deodorant. I would love to hear about your experience.
Have a great week and I will see ya’ll back here on Wednesday!
