This is definately an off topic conversation.
Just wanting to be more o-natural and thought I'd see what all of the 811ers use for deodorant?
I'm wanting something more natural.
Also, When I shave, I ALWAYS get little pimples under my arms that look and feel gross...anyone have any advice???
I don't use deodorant but I smell when I sweat. I don't mind, I have no one to please, and it'll eventually wear off as I lose weight and my fitness increases. I've only been at this for 3 years though, mostly 100 % LFRV but off now & then, mostly in winter. When I had lost all my extra fat 2.5 years ago, I didn't smell. I put on some new weight last winter which I've been getting nicely rid of since last spring. I sweat lots more than most people though, never seen anyone sweat as much as I do. I think it's good, I have always had excellent skin and these days my skin is like my 4-year old son's; I believe the sweating contributes since my skin has excellent metabolism and pushes out whatever it is that stays inside and causes skin problems in some.
It seems people who have been more or less healthy cooked vegans for years before LFRV smell less (even if they still have extra weight) on LFRV than those of us with a more omnivorous background. I guess they have less old stuff to get rid of.
Oh, and I get some red pimples in my armpits when I shave. Doesn't bother me though.
I use baking soda mixed with water to turn it into a paste like texture. Works great for me!
i dont use deodorant...
but what do you all use to clean your body in the shower???
i take a shower and just let the water clean my body
just water and baking soda to brush my teeth
and coconut oil to moisturize my skin
for hair i let the water clean my hair and i use coconut oil or sometimes olive oil to moisturize my curly curly hair...
girls with arm pit hair are more logical
What about guys with beards?
yes even girls with leg hair. the way i feel it hair is soft and fuzzy and razors cost allot of money and waste on the environment. anarcha feminists , the girls i hang around who are mostly vegan and some are raw don't mess with aesthetics on a western level and it saves them time money and well they are nice soft and fuzzy not stubbly and have not given into so called standards of beauty that has seemingly been imposed upon women. or men for that matter. if not for court i wouldn't have shaved.. pfff so social pressure still seems to play a role but that it gets resisted the more natural and in turn healthy we can be
I Use Lafes natural and organic roll on deoderant (bought from whole foods), works great for me! here is a link...
I plan on buying the coconut deo from Lush :) I don't like the crystal deodorants somehow...
This is what I use for deodorant and I LOVE IT!! http://www.therawfoodworld.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&...
if you use ozonated olive oil you will not stink.. as a matter of fact it works so well you can go for days without stinking if you are outdoors and unable to shower. It doesn't keep you from sweating so it doesn't stop that natural process. However the ozone trapped in the olive oil kills all bacteria and it is by far the best thing I have found. I use a product called Ozene by Premier Research Labs
I used to have this problem when I still shaved my underarms (haven't done so for many years and haven't had the problem since). I also stopped using deodorant when I was 811 (haven't been for a couple years but wanting to return) because there was no offensive body odor!! :D
