Breast cancer is the most common cancer in women. According to reports 12.4% of women will be affected by breast cancer in their life.

I know dove smells good, is quick, cheap, and easy, but let’s not take the chance of putting our lives’ in danger for convenience.

Now I’m not telling you to step out into the world smelling like funk. And I know you’re not trying to scare the PTA members either. So here are 2 easy deodorant alternatives to avoid this cancer causing chemical:

  1. Lemon. I know what you’re thinking, “You want me to rub lemon under my arms?” Well let me tell you from a hardworking, sweating, on the go momma it definitely works. Cut the lemon in half and simply rub it under your armpit area in its entirety. That’s it. No fuss and no mess. There is an added benefit to using the lemon. It will actually lighten darkened armpit areas! You just got two for the price of one.
