I feel like I’m just willing spring to appear through my many spring clothing hauls as of late… All I want is sun on my skin, even if that means I’m sweating (and I’m a sweater!) I’ve partnered with Secret for this video and in the vein of sharing more of myself with you guys (see this post), I’m sharing my teenage sweating story. As I’ve said before, I am a sweater. Always have been. I sweat when I’m hot, when I’m nervous, when I’m working out (like, excessively). Add into that teenage hormones, and you have a lot of perspiration. I was so, so embarrassed by it, and would literally stuff toilet paper under my arms (in my t-shirt) to prevent stains from showing. I’ll never forget how mortified I was when someone made fun of my for it (teenagers can be dicks). Needless to say I started using super strength deodorant pretty quickly and have continued using it (I’ve been using Secret Clinical Strength for years).
One of my resolutions this year was to be more aware of what I’m using on (and putting in) my body and finding a good aluminum-free deodorant was pretty high on my list. I’ve been using Secret’s Aluminum-free Rosewater deodorant for over a month now, and I love it. I’ll compliment it with my Clinical Strength when I have a super stressful/sweaty day, but for the most part, I try to stay aluminum-free (and paraben + dye free).
Ok back to spring outfits! I hope this video is helpful – shop the pieces below!
