But after several sweat sessions at the gym, I started thinking about why I sweated so much. Surely, there had to be a reason and I had a nagging feeling that I was supposed to let my sweat glands do their thing at the gym. So I jumped online to do some research and as it turns out, sweating IS good for you!
I always knew that sweating is one of your body’s natural ways of getting the bad stuff out of your body. But what I didn’t know what that when I use antiperspirant, the aluminum in it enters my sweat glands causing them to swell, which then blocks the flow out sweat out of my body. That’s not really a good idea, especially when you’re at the gym trying to sweat the toxins out, right?
So I knew I had to switch things up a bit. Now, I’m not going to lie. This is an ongoing experience for me. It will take some time for me to fully decide if I want to switch over from antiperspirant to all natural deodorant all day long. But for now, I am very happy using Tom’s of Maine deodorant for my early morning workout sessions to ensure that my body reaps all of the rewards of sweating profusely.
Why Sweating Is Good For Us
1.) Increases Endorphins
2.) Detoxifies Your Body
3.) Reduces the Risk of Kidney Stones.
Why I Switched To Tom’s Of Maine
When it came time for me to switch, I went with a brand that we already knew and loved in our own home. Tom’s of Maine toothpaste and bar soaps have been a part of our lives ever since our daughter developed skin sensitivities to other soap products. We love these products so much that we buy them in bulk so that we’re never without them. My kids happened to have their own Tom’s of Maine natural deodorant and always enjoyed putting it on. My daughter prefers apricot, my son woodland
My kids already use Tom’s of Maine natural deodorant and have always enjoyed putting it on before school. My daughter prefers Fresh Apricot, whereas my son likes Maine Woodspice. So it only seemed fitting that I would follow their lead. I knew it would take my body a little while to adjust to natural deodorant, but I was only planning to switch for my morning workout sessions, so I wasn’t too concerned. Now, I can sweat everything out like I’m supposed to.
