Don’t sweat it
Q: As you know, the chief exposure to aluminum for many folks is their daily dose of deodorant, soaking that aluminum through your skin all day. But trying to find a deodorant that works but contains no aluminum is quite a challenge.
Here’s the answer: zinc oxide ointment. Rub it on generously before bed and then wash it off in the morning. I don’t know why it works better this way, but it does. That will be the last time you use it for three to fourteen days, depending on how much sweating you do. And a three-ounce tube costs less than $2.00.
Dr. Wright: Thank you for apparently discovering a new use for this old standby, ordinarily used for baby’s bottoms, and as a very effective–although cosmetically interesting–sunblock. What you describe makes logical sense, as topically applied zinc is a well-known germkiller, eliminating most microorganisms on contact. Since you e-mailed this tip to us I have tried it myself, and it works for me, too!It is a good remedy for treating diaper rashes and skin allergies in babies when used in moderate quantities of up to 15%. Small quantities of the ointment will reduce the trapping of moisture and sweat an easily escape through the ointment patch.
It has germ-killing property and hence finds application in popular creams for treating acne. You cannot get a safer and more natural sunblock and photo age-repair agent than zinc oxide. The mild astringent property of zinc oxide can help you get rid of dead cells and allow your skin to breathe without a parlor visit.
Before you actually start your zinc oxide regime, it is better to carry out a sensitivity test. No, it is not the sensitivity test of your Bitcoin Trader software. A single rub on your backhand or palm is enough. Look for irritations or intolerance signs and then continue in their absence.
Of course while killing germs and eliminating odor, zinc oxide does not impair the natural detoxification process of sweating. Unfortunately (or not) there’s as yet nothing safe and natural in general use that will do that. But eliminating odor is excellent, and besides, you’re probably getting a small zinc supplement with every application, too!
Thanks again for sending in this useful tip. I encourage other readers who’ve discovered new uses for safe natural items to do the same.
