I use pure deorderant and the brand I use is Alba (I got it at Whole Foods Market). I don't use anti persperant because it isn't good for women to use anti-p. Alba works well it keeps me fresh and I don't even perspire under my arms. It's great and it's organic.

Talc or deodorant for sensitive underarm?
During summertime what kind of beauty secrets you put on your underarms? I have a sensitive skin, sometime deodorants make it redness and itchy. Anyone of you knows about the good talc? I prefer non perfumed.:p

I use Dr Hauschka 'fresh' deodorant. It's very gentle and made with holistically farmed plants etc. It's also pretty exspensive @ $20 but it lasts a long time.

http://www.drhauschka.com/products/products_fr.html (go to 'body' --> 'deodorants')

I found these remedies online has anyone ever tried them?
Name of Remedy: Underarm Odor
Ingredients: 1 regular potato
Instructions: Cut the potato into 4 slices. Make sure your underarm is clean and dry! Wipe the potato under each arm a few times,and wait for it to dry. After apply your ragular deodorant. Works for all I've told about it.


Ingredients: mineral salts
Instructions: I found this at a health food store and it works miracles. Its called "THAI CRYSTAL" deodorant stone. You just wet it and put it on like deodorant! All it is is mineral salts, that kill the bacteria that cause odor. It istruly amazing how well it works!! I have always had a real problem with body odour, predominently my under arms.


Ingredients: over the counter ZINC
I read years ago in a news paper, Ann Landers wrote " Dont stink think Zinc"I tryed it on a family member whom we couldnt even sit next to, and it worked great. Now years later I give my daughter Zinc when her under arms act up.Works on feet odor also.Take two 50mg tablets twice aday for a week.most times one week works, but if not take once a day after the first week till all strong ordors gone.This really works!



ingredients = A lemon.
Take a lemon and cut it in 1/2.Put the lemon over the part of the body that the odor is coming from.You can use this on the hands or underarms.After be use the odor is gone.




Ingredients: Milk of Magnesia.
Instructions: After you take a bath, shake the bottle of milk of
magnesia and wet a cotton ball, or use your fingers, and just put it on your
under arms. It is better than a deosodorant, and it works inmediatily.

For excessive underarm odor, try using a mild solution of hydrogen peroxide (3%) that is cheap and can be picked up at the pharmacy. Put a teaspoonful in a glass of water and wash the underarm. If that doesn't work, increase the amount of peroxide.

My mom told me about the Milk of Magnesia one.
I don't really use deorant I asked my friends and they say that I havent been smelly

I rarely do the milk of magnesia thingy. I think it works, but if you put too much it will leave a whiteish mark. If you wait for it to air dry, it wont stained your clothes.
