As women, we all have a routine with the personal care products we use. From our everyday  beauty products to our preferred face wash, we’re constantly applying different ingredients and chemicals to our bodies. With personal care products being mass-produced in order to meet their demand, not all widely available products are actually healthy for us in the long run. In order to make sure we’re all living our healthiest lives possible, here are some tips for everything you should avoid in commonly used products. There are body care products for a healthy lifestyle.


As we all generally want to smell as fresh as possible, deodorant is always a staple in our beauty cabinets. But what we don’t think about is what’s included within our deodorant products that helps us stay dry and smelling fresh. With deodorant often containing harmful ingredients such as parabens, triclosan, phthalates and even aluminum, it’s safer to apply more natural alternatives. With there being several aluminum-free deodorants on the market, there are also alternatives that will keep you dry, that you can find right in your kitchen.

For citrus fans, lemon juice has been known to be an effective deodorizing method. Just applying a lemon slice or a few drops of lemon juice to your underarms will leave you feeling fresh for the rest of the day. Or you can apply a mixture of cornstarch and baking soda as another option. Having the perfect mixture of these two ingredients will prevent your underarms from feeling wet and leave you odorless.


Whether you apply perfume every morning before work or only on special occasions, we all have our favorite scents stored on our beauty shelves. Even though perfume makes us smell good, fragrances have the tendency to cause skin irritations for those easily susceptible. Not to mention, unlisted chemicals are often included, giving no clarity as to what we’re applying daily on our skin. A more holistic approach is applying essential oils to your skin instead. With scents such as lemon, peppermint and lavender available, not only can you curate the perfect scent but each essential oil offers health and mental benefits.
