I give up. For the last year, I’ve been using salt crystal deoderant – an all-natural alternative to aluminum-laced (and possibly cancer-linked) antiperspirants. It was great – one of the ‘stones’ lasts forever, it’s fairly cheap and it does neutralize underarm odor. BUT. I still sweat. And when it’s hot outside, and i’m not a) exercising, or b) working in the yard, I don’t like sweating. I’m sick of soaking my pits just by sitting on the front porch. Or when loading the kids into the car. Quite frankly, it’s annoying. So yesterday I bought myself some good ol’ antiperspirant. Oh, Dove, how I’ve missed thee!
AHH. Dry at last, dry at last. I forgot how good that feels. So-fresh-and-so-clean-clean. My apologies to my hippier friends who can sweat it out with ease. I am not one of those – at least not this summer.
