Green Your Hygiene: Natural Under-Armor

Deoderant Keeping clean can be a dirty business. Freshen up your hygiene routine with this week's tips about greening your self-care.

Tip #3: Pit Stops

Sweat happens. So does body odor. Why not combat these natural bodily functions with natural ingredients? Earth-friendly deodorants and antiperspirants protect wildlife from the otherwise harsh chemicals we'd wash off every day and safeguard humans from hormone disruptors.

During your next drugstore trip, inspect labels for all-natural ingredients before buying. (Tom’s of Maine, for example, passes the test.) Better yet, conserve packaging by making your own version of this hygiene essential with simple, all-organic recipes.

Tell us: What's your favorite deodorant or antiperspirant product or recipe?
