Natural Skin Care: How and Why You Should Make the Switch

posted in: Beauty, Lifestyle, Looks, Mind & Body | 0

I am extremely conscious of what I put into my body. When it comes to food, beauty, and skin-care products, I shop organic and all-natural whenever I can, avoid preservatives as much as possible, and always read labels. Sure, I divulge a bit here and there, but I genuinely believe that natural products are much healthier than the alternative. I put so much effort into the authenticity of my food, makeup, and skin-care routine, but I’ve been completely ignoring my personal care products.




Recently, Tom’s of Maine reached out with a 7-day challenge to ‘Make The Switch’ to their natural deodorant, I couldn’t help but be intrigued. Could this product replace my go-to brand?

Tom’s of Maine natural deodorant has been a best-seller for decades. They are free of aluminum, artificial fragrances, and petrochemicals, so you can find comfort with what you’re putting on your body and don’t have to worry about harsh effects of unknown chemicals.




It is important to note that Tom’s of Maine deodorant is just that and not an antiperspirant. That means that although it won’t prevent you from sweating, it will neutralize or cover any unappealing body odors. If, like me, you’re contemplating switching from a conventional formula to a natural one, you will most likely need to give your body time to adjust. It’s a good idea to try out different scents as everyone has a unique body chemistry and natural scent. With 6 scents to choose from (Unscented, Lavender, Powder, Tea Tree, Apricot, and Lemongrass) there is truly something for everyone.


I was surprised to learn that I don’t perspire nearly as much as I thought I did. I had always used a clinical strength antiperspirant, and if this challenge taught me anything- it was that this was completely unnecessary.

I was also surprised at how much I enjoyed the deodorant’s formula. I imagined the gel-like product to feel sticky and someone wet under my arms, but it dried fast and was totally undetectable. One of the major bonuses is that Tom’s of Maine goes on clear and therefor doesn’t stain your clothes! If that’s not a win, I don’t know what is!


Regarding scents, I’ve always been very picky about my deodorants. For day-to-day wear, I enjoyed the unscented formula best. As someone who works out daily, I also found it to be the least distracting in the gym as it neutralizes body oder without adding an additional scent. For a night out when I wanted a little something extra, I really enjoyed the fresh scent of Lemongrass and the floral scent of Lavender.

In addition to natural deodorants, Tom’s of Maine boasts a wide variety of natural, high-quality products like dental floss, toothpaste, mouthwash, soaps, and baby care products. They are always transparent with their ingredients, so you know precisely what you are using. Tom’s of Maine is a leading natural personal care brand whose team consists of distinguished dentists, scientists, and herbal experts that are leaders in their fields. They are also an ethical company that only produces fully recyclable packaging and does not test on animals or use animal ingredients. Tom’s of Maine gives 10% of profits back to helping people and the planet with every purchase, so you can feel good about supporting a company with a cause.




So what do you think? Will you make the switch?
