During pregnancy lots of strange things happen to our body, and one of them is excessive sweating. Especially when we are sleeping and we are getting those awful cold night sweats. But the problem is that the sweat smells awful! Another thing is that we are not allowed to use chemicals and all sort of trade market products.
Meanwhile, it was “discovered” the lemon juice! The simplicity of this solution makes it very effective! Citric acid kills bacteria throughout the day without adding other ingredients for smell or texture. It’s enough to use only citric acid to keep away irritations and to get rid of odors. And this is what makes lemon juice to be the best natural antiperspirant, because lemons contain less sugar than other fruits.
What do you have to do?
1. Cut one lemon in half and rub the skin prone to sweating with the pulp.
2. Keep lemons in a sealed plastic container in the refrigerator to keep them fresh.
3. Lemon halves can be used for another week after the first use.
Adapting to this new type of antiperspirant can be difficult at the beginning, because from the first use you won’t get such desirable results. You’ll see remarkable results after one week of daily usage. So, don’t be impatient because results will appear and you won’t deal with smelly armpits during pregnancy.
