Use Baby Powder as Deodorant

I began using baby powder containing corn starch and zinc oxide instead of antiperspirant deodorant. For me, it works even better than the deodorant and I don't have to be concerned about the aluminum from the antiperspirant being absorbed through my skin anymore. I pour some baby powder from the container into a small bowl and use a powder puff for the application. I figure that if it's safe for a baby, it must be safe for all of us.

Editor's Note The American Academy of Pediatrics does not recommend using talcum powder on infants and children. It has been shown to cause lung and breathing problems. If you decide to try this tip, be sure not to inhale any of the fine powder.
