My Weekly Fitness Routine

Hello Loves,

My fitness journey continues and, I am making some amazing progress. I have lost about 12 pounds and I am that much closer to my goals to be a fit individual. This week I have been slacking in the fitness department mostly, because I have been writing so many blog posts and pet sitting. It was also really warm out and I wasn’t running/walking in 80-90 degree Fahrenheit weather. I did bring my yoga mat and kettle bell with me which, I will be using for the next couple of days.

Witch Hazel Loving

Ciao Tutti,
So, recently I have been reading about witch hazel and how it takes the toxins out of your body. I have been using it on my face and arm pits. I will be geeing my thyroid checked soon because I have been cold sweating (which means I sweat when I am cold). This problem has been extremely frustrated because my deodorant no longer works properly. I am usually home by myself working so, there isn’t a huge problem but, if I go out I do worry about it. I got curious and decided to do a small amount of research and came across witch hazel being used as not only a toner and face cleanser but, as deodorant. Pleasantly surprised, I started using it to try and regulate my body. I am trying to get back into completely natural ways to heal the body. Yes, heal because there is a built up of toxins from other deodorant brands I have used and I am working to clear my face of some acne spots and blackheads as well. I do wonder if waxing and not shaving the armpit would help to get rid of some of the hair follicles which would leave less room for toxin to develop therefore, less odor would occur. This is an odd occurrence for me because I didn’t have this issue until starting college three years ago although, cold sweating can be caused by stress it seems to not fit because I am out of college and, just working away. I am happy an love what I am doing so, I will be happy to get down to the cause of this. In the meantime, I am using witch hazel to see if I can balance my body to its natural form while decreasing the odor. Does anyone else have this issue, if so what do you do to help yourself. I am vegan so only vegan product suggestions please or natural remedies. I can’t wait to read your comments below. Last question, do you use witch hazel and, what do you use it for. The platform is now open for discussion so, ask and help away! Social Media will be linked down below don’t forget to tag me and #witchhazelmadness #theodorwithin .

Have an enlightening and adventurous day,
allie
