What is armpit detox?
This is a treatment to do as a cure that will help unclog the pores of the armpits, eliminate toxins and potential chemical residues. It is in a way a deep cleaning of this too often forgotten area. The Detoxifying treatment will also help remove any unsightly brown spots. This area is sometimes over-stressed, toxins accumulate and bad odors appear.

Place in a thick layer on clean armpits (about 15min). Arms in the air of rigor! Rinse with clean water. Clay treatments tend to dry out quickly once applied. The clay which dries and cracks attacks the skin and dries it out.

Thus, you can keep the mask on for 15 minutes without suffering from skin dryness.
How to do an armpit detox?
The transition from chemical to natural
Some people switching to natural deodorant find that these are not effective because they are prone to amplified bad odors. This is explained by the fact that the toxins are released en masse. The body needs to regulate itself again. So I advise you to go through a transition phase by starting a detox treatment of the armpits. You should not apply anything under the armpits for 1 to 3 weeks (depending on each) except this mask. If it is impossible for you not to put anything, use a deodorant with a good composition and do not let go, the body will get used to it.
During this cure, you must drink plenty of water to help the body eliminate toxins through perspiration. Sweating is a phenomenon by which the body regulates its temperature. Bad odors are caused by toxins. Thus, you may smell "bad", it's a good sign! The body eliminates toxins. This treatment is to be done every 2 days until you no longer smell bad odors.
Always with industrial deodorants
For people who have not yet made the switch to deodorant with a clean composition, I recommend doing this mask once or twice a month to remove the chemical compounds of the deodorant (phthalates, parabens, aluminium...). These harmful products interfere in the activity regulating hormones and prevent the elimination of toxins.
Fans of natural deodorant will also find their account here because after this treatment natural deodorants work much better. To be done monthly.
During the cure, drink plenty of water and eat foods rich in antioxidants (strawberries, artichokes, etc.).
