Skin Foodie Pit Primer
A Mask for your PITS?
Whether you are transitioning to a natural deodorant for the first time or are experiencing a new and unusual odor the Pit Primer and Detox is here to save the day! If you have experienced a difficult time finding a deodorant I usually ask...what were you using before? Many times it was an antiperspirant. Which we all know uses ingredients that inhibit your bodies ( your armpits ) ability to detox, purge, sweat, rid of toxins...whatever you may call it...it is time to PURGE. If you are experiencing redness, inflammation or a rash of some sort...it is not the DETOX period. Some may refer to it as a pit detox...any sign of redness is imbalance or irritation. I always recommend to stop using that product. Restore and Neutralize the pH and then slowly integrate it back into your routine. The Skinfodies deo's are super effective and only a pea size amount is recommended so be sure you are not using too much product! If you experience redness it could be a variety of things; your clothing breathability, new friction with the added powders, an imbalance in alkalinity or acidity, or possibly a sensitivity to an ingredient. FINDING balance is definitely an easier transition for those already using a natural deodorant or those that have stopped using an antiperspirant all together. The Detox period is often referred to as the time of adjustment. A normal "detox" would include things like a new odor, yellowing or excessive sweating. The Pit Primer is a blend of butters and Super Detoxing Powders that help pull impurities from the pits and prime the area by restoring pH and neutralizing bacteria causing odor. A bit of Charcoal and Bentonite Clay work together to not only pull and purge but also help with discoloration, also known as Acanthosis Nigricans. Darkening of the underarms often occurs in individuals of African and Hispanic descent, although it can affect any demographic. Some things you can do to help exfoliate before you PRIME! I recommend dry brushing your pits GENTLY before painting on the Primer Mask!
If you are just now making the switch to a natural deo I highly recommend using the primer for the for 3-5 days in conjunction with your new deodorant. Apply a dime size amount in each armpit using a foundation brush or your finger. Evenly distribute the mask and be sure to leave it on for 10-15 minutes. Using a warm wash cloth gently remove the mask and apply your deodorant as usual. Use on an as needed basis or if you feel you pits need a purge. If you are experiencing a new and unusual smell it could be a number of things but always remember to drink a plenty of water. Also, think about what you have consumed...anything unusual??? A new supplement, vitamin, a piece of garlic toast? Now that you have ruled all of those things out it could be a hormonal imbalance. Many bodily changes create a new odor for our bodies to purge and thats okay. Order the Pit Primer and DETOX your pits for REAL! Can't wait and want to attack your odor issue like NOW....slice a lemon or lime in half and then half again...use it in you armpits! Now you are smelling fresh! Feeling super adventurous??? Bathe with a lime a lemon or both!
Remember this contains Magnesium, which is super amazing for your pits, and help control odor. Do not apply to freshly shaven PITS!!!! It could quit possibly sting, burn, or tingle! Magnesium itself can have that affect and it is totally normal but lets shave another time!
