How to use lekker natural deodorant
If you're here, it probably means you're dying to try lekker natural deodorant or you're already using it and are just a fan, yay!
We would like to explain you step by step how to use our natural deodorants, because though it comes in a cute pot it can look confusing to though used to the traditional spray or roller deodorants. First off, our deodorants may look small, but due tot their super concentrate formula, one pot can last between 2 to 3 months of use. Only a pea-sized amount is needed to ensure ultimate freshness.
If you find that your pits still smell after using our deodorant for the first time, please give it some time because your body needs to detox. Detox? Yes, if your body is used to aluminium based deodorant, which clogs your sweat glands to stop you from sweating all day. In contrast to aluminium based deodorants, natural deodorants allow your body to sweat naturally (which doesn’t smell) and eliminate odour causing bacteria.
When you first start using natural deodorants, the toxins that have been built up in your body, and weren’t allowed out because of the aluminium deodorant, need to come out before the natural deodorant can do its work. Sadly, these toxins produce more odour causing bacteria. You also may notice that you sweat more than usual. Do not worry! This is all-natural, and it will soon stabilize. Your body is just getting used to sweating again. Hang in there! This process can take from a few days up to 4 weeks.
How can I speed up the process?
Naturally, we understand that most people are concerned abut their body odour and that the detox period might me a reason for people to hesitate when considering natural deodorants. Whether your detox lasts 4 days or 4 weeks, these tips will make the transition a lot easier!
1. Drink lots of water
2. Go to the sauna and simply ‘’sweat it out’’
3. Make a mask with apple cider vinegar and bentonite clay. Mix these ingredients with a 1:1 ratio and put them on your armpits for 15 minutes. Keep repeating this step weekly until you are done detoxing.
How do you use Lekker Deodorant?
Step 1: Open the lid of your cute lekker pot
Step 2: Using the top of your nail, scoop out a pea size amount of the deodorant (this will avoid getting the product under your nail).
Step 3: Apply to your pit and gently rub in.
Step 4: Repeat steps 2 and 3 for your other pit.
Step 5: Sniff test; we promise you will smell Lekker!
