For those of you who know me and know my obsession with deodorants (not anti-perspirants), I am thrilled to inform you that Guinot has now developed not one, but two deodorants. Both are effective and have added benefits in these products, which inhibit re-growth and greatly slow it down over time.
The two products I am speaking of are Guinot Deo Epil Smart (After Hair Removal Deodorant Spray) and Guinot Deo Crème Epil Smart (After Hair Removal Deodorant Cream). Both are anti re-growth deodorants that do not contain alcohol or aluminum salts.
Why I’m Anti Antiperspirants
The widespread use of antiperspirants is a huge concern of mine. I would like to point out to those of you who are not aware, the big differences between deodorants and antiperspirants. Antiperspirants contain small particles of aluminum, (deodorants do not). Aluminum stops the body from perspiring. I like to compare it to putting a plug in the bathtub: when the plug is in, the water cannot escape. The same idea happens when you use your antiperspirant, you do not perspire. This may sound like a good thing, however what is happening when you perspire is your body is removing uric acid that is in your perspiration. By not allowing the body to rid this acid through sweating, it will begin to build up and over time until the body finds another area of the body to send it to, eventually causing more congestion elsewhere.
Perspiration helps to regulate body temperature, as well as to eliminate uric acid. Neither function can occur correctly when using an antiperspirant product. Many people are not even aware that they are using these damaging products on a daily basis. It is very important to read labels today, remember: no aluminum salts!
Deodorants work to mask body odor while allowing the body to function normally and naturally. This is an easy step to take towards living a healthier lifestyle. As we are all living longer these days it is better to be free from aluminum products as some studies now suggest that a build-up of aluminum in the body can contributes to Alzheimer’s.
I have noticed a great improvement with my clients who have chosen to switch from an antiperspirant to a deodorant. Some of the biggest differences I have seen are clearer skin with less break-outs (even on the chest and back). Another big difference I have seen and clients have shared with me is the disappearance of cellulite. It just makes sense, if you allow your body to eliminate toxins naturally, your body will pay back tenfold! Think about it.
Introducing Guinot’s Deodorant
Both of these products have a light pleasant fragrance and are easy to use. The Deo Epil Smart has a super concentrated formula, and comes in a small compact spray that dispenses the perfect amount of product. The packaging enables you to carry it with you and re-apply if needed on the go. This spray is effective in neutralizing the formation of body odor, and helps to control perspiration without blocking the body’s natural process.
The second deodorant product that Guinot has introduced is the “Deo” Cream Epil Smart. This cream incorporates all the benefits of the Epil Smart spray, but comes in a cream base. Just as with the spray, this cream accts directly on the hair room to slow hair regrowth.
The ingredient, Bulbaine is found in both of these products. Bulbaine is a patented complex, of plant and marine extract, when used on a daily basis; it helps to prolong the effects of hair removal (either waxing or shaving). Leaving the under arm skin clean and hair free for a longer period of time.
