How to Cleanse Your Underarms Naturally? A Step-by-Step Pit Prep Guide

Unpleasant underarm odors can be quite off-putting for many of us. Let us take you through a step-by-step guide, addressing the issue of underarm odor caused by aluminum-packed antiperspirants and the switch to a more natural detoxification process. If you've been struggling with the consequences of more conventional products and want a healthy solution, you're in the right place. 

Why More Natural Deodorants Are Better?

Natural deodorants have gained popularity for several compelling reasons. Unlike their chemical-laden counterparts, natural deodorants are free from harsh ingredients like aluminum compounds, parabens, artificial colors, and phthalate-containing fragrances. They provide a gentle, skin-friendly alternative that's particularly well-suited for those with sensitive skin.

Additionally, they allow your body to perspire naturally, avoiding the potential health concerns associated with interrupting your body’s natural processes with aluminum. But why do underarms sometimes develop unpleasant odors? It's because sweat itself is odorless; the characteristic smell arises when sweat mixes with bacteria on the skin's surface. 

Join us on this journey of transformation from conventional deodorants to a fresher, healthier you. If you prefer a visual tutorial, you're in luck! Check out our short video on the Pit Prep Pack detox process here: 

Step 1: Cleanse with Ex-Factor Bar Soap

The first step in your underarm detox journey is to use our Ex-Factor bar soap. This gently exfoliates, cleanses, and moisturizes your skin, ensuring a smooth detox process. Follow these steps: 

  • Wet your underarms with warm water. 
  • Lather up the Ex-Factor bar soap in your hands. 
  • Apply the lather to your underarms, gently massaging in a circular motion. 
  • Rinse thoroughly with warm water and pat dry. 

Step 2: In Your Face Clay-Based Masque

Now, it's time for In Your Face, our clay-based masque. This superstar product will steal the spotlight by pulling out impurities and reigning in the rebellious bacteria that can cause odor. Follow these steps: 

  • Apply a generous layer of In Your Face masque to your clean, dry underarms. 
  • Allow it to sit for about 10-15 minutes or until it dries. 
  • Rinse off with warm water and pat dry. 

Step 3: Choose Your Show-Stopping Stick Deodorant

Now that your underarms are prepped and detoxed, it's time to choose your favorite stick deodorant. We have a range of options to match your preferences, from the baking soda-free Lavender Swirl and refreshing Fuji Green Apple to the highly effective Strawberry Feels Forever and soothing Matcha. Our Lavender Swirl all-over deodorant is specially designed to absorb moisture and keep you smelling fresh, even in areas like the armpits and skin folds, such as under the belly and beneath the breasts. Our deodorants don't just control odor; they turn it into a fragrance headliner! Here's how to apply: 

  • Twist up the stick deodorant. 
  • Gently apply a thin, even layer to your underarms. 
  • Allow it to dry before getting dressed. 

Bonus Step: Ongoing Self-Care Routine

Do this up to 3 times per week while transitioning to an aluminum free deodorant. Continue up to 2 times per week, or as your skin tolerates, as part of your regular beauty routine after your transition. 

Even if you're already living an aluminum-free life, the Pit Prep Pack is the ultimate self-care routine to keep your underarms in tip-top shape. The Pit Prep Pack offers a natural and effective solution to underarm care, replacing conventional antiperspirants with a gentler approach. It's time to make the switch and let your underarms shine as the real stars they are!
