7 Celebrities Shared Why They Stopped Using Deodorant

year ago

Although applying deodorant is part of many people’s daily routine, using it on a daily basis might affect your health in many surprising ways. From disrupting your skin’s natural microbiome to making your body odor stronger, there are lots of reasons to finally ditch deodorants. Many celebrities stopped using deodorants and antiperspirants years ago, and they shared the reasons behind it.

Many deodorants contain harmful ingredients that can affect our health, and Cameron Diaz isn’t willing to take the risk. “I don’t believe in antiperspirant. It’s really bad for you. I haven’t used it for almost 20 years. You’re stinky, because you use antiperspirant. It keeps all the stink in,” she said.

The Pretty Woman actress simply doesn’t have the habit of wearing deodorant on a daily basis. “I don’t actually use deodorant. I don’t like to share that with a lot of people. It’s just never been my thing,” she said.

The award-winning actor believes taking a shower is more than enough to keep an unpleasant body odor at bay. “I don’t use deodorant really anymore. I do take a lot of showers, so maybe that helps. In the morning and then at night. And after I work out, I’ll take a shower. So maybe three a day,” he shared.

The Troy star is allergic to deodorant, so she uses perfume instead. “I wear it [perfume] every day. In the morning, the bottle is right there next to my toothbrush. I’m allergic to deodorant, so I even spritz it on my underarms. [At the gym] then I spritz extra. But, yes, I probably smell bad after a workout... I like to share my imperfections and vulnerabilities. This impossible pursuit of youth and perfection is not for me,” she said.

Some deodorants may not be safe for pregnant people, and the reality TV star wanted to be more conscious of what products she used during her pregnancy. “While I’ve been watching what goes into my body this pregnancy, I’m also looking at what is on my body. I’ve also been drinking a lot of water and even trying to go deodorant-free,” she shared.

The stand-up comedian admitted that he never uses deodorant. He believes using patchouli is more than enough to take care of his under arm area.

7. Kourtney Kardashian

Medical experts warn that using aluminium-based deodorants and antiperspirants isn’t recommended for lactating women, and Kourtney Kardashian decided to give it up to keep her children healthy. “She doesn’t believe in wearing deodorant because she thinks it’s bad for her breastfeeding,” her ex-partner Scott Disick said.

Do you wear deodorant daily? Do you think it might be healthier to go deodorant-free?
