Body odour is a common problem among people and not a good one for that matter. These are some tips on how to prevent it.
1.Be sure to shower or bathe daily.
Use proper body cleansing agents
such as soap or shower gel. Wash
everything completely especially your underarms.
2.Don’t use antiperspirant/
deodorant (except in cases of
excessive sweating). It will actually end up making you smell worse than ever. Not many people know this, but perspiration by itself has no odour at all. Underarm odour is caused by bacteria and their excrement. Soap and deodorant actually supply food for the bacteria and they excrete even more. This is easy to verify. Just wash your
underarms with nothing but water
and a clean cloth. Do this for a month. You will not smell at all. If it is too much sweating giving you trouble, then you should actually use an antiperspirant. This is because this product helps to cut down on your sweating.
3. Change your clothes, including undergarments and socks, daily.
Wash underwear (but not necessarily bras) after each use, and other clothes at least when they get dirty, sweaty, or when they do not smell clean. Socks and shoes may be changed 2-3 times per day if they get sweaty, and
keeping feet dry can reduce odor and irritation. Store your clothes in places where air can get to them and that smell nice . Consider scented paper as lining in your drawers. Hanging garments up
may help more than storing them in drawers; it will let them dry and kill any bacteria that might be living there.
4. Wash your hands frequently, at least three or four times per day.
Adjust your diet/lifestyle. Body
odour is directly linked to the waste products of your body’s digestion. What you eat has a large effect on how you smell. If you eat bad quality, unhealthy food, your digestion will reflect that, and you will excrete those
bad smells and stink to those around you. Try to avoid fast food, fried foods, and any other processed foods that contain a lot of chemicals.
5.If you smoke, stop smoking.
Everyone knows that smoking causes cigarette smell to attach to your clothing. It can also negatively affect the regulatory systems responsible for
keeping odours in line. Stop smoking.
6. If the body odour doesn’t seem to go away, no matter how much you wash, consider probiotics or changing your diet . Don’t bother trying to mask the odour; find out what is. causing it, and treat it. Also try using mild shampoo instead of soap, and even consider washing your body by scrubbing well with just water and a clean cloth (as for some individuals, odour seems to be a reaction to cleansers). Water-only washing may or may not work, depending on the cause of the odour, your body, what you’re exposed to, and your local water; try it on a day you can risk smelling bad first.
7. Floss daily, preferably twice a day, and brush your teeth at least two times a day. Have professional cleaning at least two times a year. Body odour may also include halitosis, which is often a sign of gingivitis. Consult your doctor if body odour is a permanent problem . You might
be diagnosed with Bromhidrosis. It is often associated with changes of the hormone level (pubertal or climacteric period), diabetes, hidden inflammations, alimentation changes or preponderance. The most common
reason for unpleasant body odour is excessive sweating.
8.Always carry a bandana/Handkerchiefs – it is a useful item to carry when outdoors . Wipe the perspiration off yourself with the bandana or a damp
bandana. After using paper towels, there might be tiny bits of the paper towel on your face, so if there is no mirror, wipe at your face to remove those possible specks. With gangs around, don’t use a red or blue bandana.
9.Buy some of those canisters
(similar to baby wipes) with the
disposable cleaning sheets for
some quick and easy freshening-
up . What works just as well is a some paper towel, soaked with a little rubbing alcohol, in a zip lock bag. Spray in a little cologne in the bottle of
