Enter The Lemon
You can use lemon as deodorant.
Lemon is acidic. Thats where its powers in how to use lemon as a deodorant lay.
- Cut a lemon in half. When you get out of the shower, make sure you dry off completely.
- Gently rub the lemon into your armpits.
Using lemon as deodorant isnt just a quick fix. Its more of a way to “condition” your underarms to stop smelling bad.
How it works
When you use lemon as deodorant, you are saturating your underarm Apocrine Glands with the acidic juices. Your Apocrine glands are the ones responsible for creating the foul odor. Apocrine glands release secretions from inside the body. Bacteria is naturally attracted to these secretions before they leave your body.
When the bacteria release toxins and waste into these secretions, it gives the secretions a foul odor.
By using lemons as deodorant, the citric acid neutralizes the bacteria in the secretions .
