Can Lime Juice Be Used as a Natural Deodorant?

Next time you are out at the bar and feeling not so fresh, take that lime out of your margarita and wipe your armpits with it. 

Beauty blogger, Farah Dhukai makes the claim that lime juice

works well for her as a natural deodorant. Personally I am a fan of Native deodorant and have not experimented with lime juice myself. However, I did find others on the web who’ve tried it and here is what I found.

Most experimenters tried the lime juice for a week and said it did work for the mos

t part. But here are a few important things to consider:

  • DO NOT apply the lime juice right after shaving because it will STING.
  • Lime juice and the sun react in such a way that can cause your skin to burn, so absolutely do not apply lime if you are planning on exposing this area of your body to the sun.

How to use: Dhukai suggests you cut the lime into small pieces and apply directly to your armpits and store in the fridge or you can juice the lime and use it with a cotton ball. Let it dry COMPLETELY and you are set.

She gives this disclaimer: As with any skin care regimen, always do a test patch first to see if your skin is allergic to any of the ingredients.

Everyone’s skin is different, so result can vary from person to person. I can not vouch for any substitute ingredients. This post is provided for information and educational purposes. It is not designed or intended to constitute medical advice. Please discontinue use if your skin does not react well to the regimen.

Should you try it? Up to you. If you do, let me know how it goes.

Live Well.
