Deodorants and perfumes
Deodorants and perfumers
One of the most important ways the human body eliminates waste and toxins is through the skin.
When sweating, the evaporating liquids reduce the temperature of the body. It functions as a cooling mechanism. Along with the sweat, the body gets rid of waste and toxins.
Toxins in the human body come from the foods eaten, the air inhaled and from other chemical process going on in the body. When being sick or when eating foods that are not meant for a human body, the odor of the sweat becomes foul. The foul smell, is in a way, the body signaling, that something is wrong.
Actually, the foul smell is caused mainly by bacteria that is attracted to the waste disposed by the body. The bacteria break the waste, leaving an acidic deposition, that does not smell good.
When in good health, eating the right food and breathing fresh air, sweat becomes odorless. Bacteria is not attracted to the disposed waste.
Some people who do not feel comfortable with the odor that their body produces, “mask” it with perfumes and deodorants. “Long Lasting Deodorants” many times block the pours in the skin, not allowing the body to eliminate, leaving waste and toxins in the body.
Perfumes are many times highly concentrated chemicals that may contain toxins. These toxins may enter into the body through the pours of the skin.
There are many foods that may function well as harmless cosmetics.
Rule of thumb: whatever is eatable, is suitable for putting on the skin
