Live Fit Recommends!

What is Live Fit Recommends? It is a post where I share with you a great product that I have tested out. When I am looking for a new product, I do a lot of research on the options out there and go through trials of many different brands to find the one with the best ingredients, best taste, best outcome etc.. I am passing on this info to you in case it is of interest. FYI - I get absolutely nothing from the companies that manufacture the products.

So let's talk DEODORANTS - not a subject many like to discuss but who wants to emit an unpleasant, offensive odor after a sweaty workout? No one does right? So here is a little 411 on deodorants. 

Deodorants allow perspiration but block the odor unlike antiperspirants that work to prevent perspiration. Perspiration is a natural process that needs to take place in order to regulate our body temperature. This explains why I am focusing on deodorants as it is the odor that I am most concerned with and not the act of sweating or perspiring. Deodorants block odor by killing the bacteria that causes the odor. Many deodorants on the market contain aluminum as an active ingredient, which is considered a neurotoxin. Not good at all! Aluminum can cause visible allergic reactions and has also been associated with a variety of health issues to include, breast cancer, Alzheimer's disease, bone disorders, and kidney problems. In order to avoid aluminum, you need to begin using natural deodorants of which there are many on the market today. 

After a very long search for a deodorant with natural ingredients that doesn't leave me stinky after workouts or a long day training clients, I have finally found one that truly works! I first heard of Piper Wai through the TV show, Shark Tank, and was a little hesitant to try it out as I felt it was pretty expensive for a deodorant. When I was still smelly after trying Honest Company, Kiss My Face, and Jason deodorants, I decided to pay the extra money and try out Piper Wai. I am so glad that I did as it has been amazing! It has all natural ingredients, smells really good, is easy to apply, does not rub off on your clothing, lasts a long time, and leaves me smelling clean for hours! Hope you have great results with the product like I did!

Happy Sweating!
