5 Best Deodorants for Women

unnamed (1)

Living in South Florida means that is warm and hot most time of the year. As a result here is a short list of the five best deodorants found for women.

 1.Native deodorant

Made from natural ingredients, blew us away in terms of effectiveness, and is one of the favorite deodorant by far.  It is fantastic at eliminating odors – you can wear it to yoga and to the gym multiple times, and never felt worried about your body odor. In addition, Native kept us feeling dry all day long, and didn’t leave behind that sticky or oily feeling that some deodorants gave us.

Native deodorant is completely natural, and doesn’t contain chemicals like aluminum and paraben. Most antiperspirants (like Secret, Dove and Degree) have aluminum, which has been linked to breast cancer and Alzheimer’s, so we wanted to avoid it.  Native comes in a few different scents, including Unscented, Coconut & Vanilla, Lavender & Rose, Eucalyptus & Mint, and Citrus & Herbal Musk.

2. Aesop Deodorant

Aesop Deodorant is a skin care company that started in Australia and has really begun making a name for itself in the United States.  Like the other deodorants on the list, Aēsop Deodorant is aluminum and paraben free.  It has a sophisticated scent and is on the pricey side for deodorants and earned the #2 spot.

3.Jason Deodorant

JASON has a long history of making natural products, and its deodorant is no different. It came in stick form as opposed to a spray or cream, and based on some reviews the stick form tend to be more effective at keeps you dry.

4. Honest Deodorant

If you are a parent, you’ve likely experimented with some Honest Co. products. Honest Deodorant comes in a spray format.  Has been found that natural spray deodorants don’t do a good job at preventing wetness.  Honest Co is no different – it has great scents (Bergamont Sage ) but doesn’t do enough to prevent wetness, ranked Honest Co. #4 on the list.

5. Organic 101 

Organic 101 Deodorant is certified organic by the USDA, and I’m not sure if any other deodorants are able to say that. The deodorant smelled a bit manly more like Old Spice or a heavy dose of cinnamon, and comparing with Honest, Honest’s scent was superior.  It is also a bit dry to roll on, it earned #5 spot.

I hope this list helped you to choose the best and natural option, through years aluminium and paraben has been linked to breast cancer and Alzheimer’s, and we can start to be more careful and choose the best option for us and for our family.

Don’t Want a C-Section? Avoid These 22 Hospitals

I knew Miami would be on the list. 

Via Parents

A new study says some hospitals have Cesarean rates that are well above national targets.

We know the C-section rate is at an all-time high. And that’s concerning, since having a Cesarean birth carries inherent risks for both mother and baby, and has even been linked to long-term, adverse health effects for children, including an increased chance they will be obese, and develop diabetes and asthma.

Of course, some C-sections are unavoidable and promise the best outcome for mother and child. But it’s often theorized that certain doctors and hospitals have become C-section happy, and may perform the procedures either prematurely or unnecessarily. By some estimates, as many as half of all C-sections could actually have been avoided!

A report by Consumer Reports looks at which hospitals have the highest C-section rates in the country. And if you’re trying to avoid a Cesarean birth, it’s a list you really need to see.

Researchers looked at 1,300 U.S. hospitals, and say these are the 22 with Cesarean rates that far exceed the national target of 23.9 percent or lower, set by the Department of Health and Human Services. The report focused on first-time moms, who for all intents and purposes should have been at a low risk of needing C-sections. As in, they didn’t experience pregnancy complications, were expecting only one baby, and that baby was not in a breech position.

Without further ado, here are the hospitals that perform the most C-sections in the nation, along with their individual rates:

1. South Miami Hospital, Miami, FL—51 percent

2. Richmond University Medical Center, Staten Island, NY—44 percent

3. Hackensack University Medical Center, Hackensack, NJ —43 percent

4. Woman’s Hospital of Texas, Houston, TX—41 percent

5. Midland Memorial Hospital, Midland, TX—40 percent

6. Inova Fairfax Hospital, Falls Church, VA —39 percent

7. Las Palmas Medical Center, El Paso, TX—39 percent

8. Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital Plano, Plano, TX—39 percent

9. Memorial Regional Hospital, Hollywood, FL—38 percent

10. Henrico Doctors’ Hospital, Richmond, VA—37 percent

11. Doctor’s Hospital at Renaissance, Edinburg, TX—37 percent

12. Baptist Hospital of Miami, Miami, FL—37 percent

13. Riverside Community Hospital, Riverside, CA —36 percent

14. Bayshore Medical Center, Pasadena, TX—35 percent

15. Jackson Health System, Miami, FL—35 percent

16. Boca Raton Regional Hospital, Boca Raton, FL—34 percent

17. St. Joseph’s Healthcare System, Paterson, NJ—34 percent

18. Medical Center at Bowling Green, Bowling Green, KY—34 percent

19. Baylor All Saints Medical Center at Fort Worth, Fort Worth, TX—34 percent

20. Wesley Medical Center, Wichita, KS—34 percent

21. Inova Alexandria Hospital, Alexandria, VA—34 percent

22. Baptist Medical Center, San Antonio, TX—34 percent

Go to the Consumer Reports site if you want to see the response of each hospital that made this list.

It’s worth noting that no one is saying these hospitals are bad places to deliver your baby. But if you are concerned about your risk factors for having a C-section, talk to your doctor ahead of your delivery. Make sure you understand your chances for a Cesarean birth, and also know both your doctor’s and hospital’s policies regarding when C-sections are recommended and/or required.
