If you are also a fan of eco-friendly and natural beauty solutions, you’re going to like today’s post. After many attempts I managed to come up with two recipes for game-changing antiperspirants. Both of them are made from ingredients you’ve got in the kitchen! 

Who should go for homemade antiperspirants?

  • people who want to live a more eco-friendly lifestyle
  • people who struggle with ingrown hair
  • people who are allergic to readymade antiperspirants
  • people who like testing new beauty trends

A homemade antiperspirant really pays because it is as effective as products from the store. Plus, it is more budget-friendly. The components are the most important, though! DIY antiperspirant contains ingredients you know very well while readymade ones are jam-packed with synthetic aromas, preservatives, and harmful aluminum derivatives.

  • As far as the first antiperspirant goes, apply it using a powder puff, brush or sponge.
  • Allow the antiperspirant to be fully absorbed to avoid stains.
  • Instead of coconut oil, you can use sweet almond oil which works wonders on sensitive skin.
