I shaved my legs this morning so you better believe I’m not going to waste all that effort, so I’m wearing a dress today. But I just discovered quite a few screaming red welts from mosquito or other bug-bites on the backs of my legs that are just horrible looking. So maybe I’ll end up wearing pants today? Eh…I just can’t. It’s too muggy out for pants.
But can I just say I LOVE not wearing deodorant? The freedom that comes from just putting on clothes and not having to worry about getting deo stains on them? PRICELESS. This has been so life-changing for me. Yes, but the very end of the day I do have a certain “odor,” but it’s as natural for humans to have an odor as it is animals, and I’m going to sweat anyway, deo or not, so I choose not. I asked my husband if I smelled bad at the end of one day and he said no, so…
I do put a little schmidt’s on right before Pure Barre, but then I shower afterwards and wash it all off. Why didn’t I think of no-deodorant earlier? Deodorant stains are the BANE of my existence.
I got the idea to stop wearing deodorant from Doree during a Forever35 podcast – a good listen, BTW, and thanks Catherine for mentioning it, and just in an episode yesterday they were talking about not showering everyday. Now that, I’m not sure I can do. Mostly because I either do the Peloton or Pure Barre most days, and also because I enjoy it; the feeling of “cleaning up” and starting my day.
I might try though, one weekend day.
Do you shower everyday? Wear deodorant everyday?
