Body Odor happens when your sweat meets the bacteria on the surface of your skin and makes an unpleasant smell.sweat itself is odorless to humans.it is the rapid multiplication of bacteria in the presence of sweat and their breakdown of sweat into acids that eventually cause the smell.it begins at puberty because of rising hormones called androgens.that's why body odor isn't a problem when you are a young kid.once the hormones are active,few thing like heavy exercises,warm or hot weather,being overweight,spicy foods,health conditions like liver disease makes body odor worse.but don't worry because the following steps will help you control that smell.
Use of hydrogen and water
Try a solution of hydrogen peroxide and water to fight body odor.it helps destroy some bacteria that creates odor.use one tablespoon of hydrogen peroxide and once cup of water.wipe this mixture on the affected areas(underarms,feet,groin)with a wash cloth.shaving underarms regularly will also help prevent the accumulation of bacteria because when armpits have hairs,it slows down the evaporation of sweat giving the bacteria more time to break it down into small substance.remember also to keep your underarms dry.
Spike the laundry
Turn your clothes inside out before washing them.this makes it easier to get the sweat out of fabric and your clothes will look new for longer.if your clothes smell like the bottom of your gym bag,add a cup of vinegar to your laundry and they will come out smelling fresh.you can also use up to one cup of baking soda to beat the stink.just don't mix the vinegar and the baking soda as they will cancel each other out.for really stinky clothes and all technical fabric,skip the dryer as it will bake in the smell and make it harder to get rid off.
Use of right deodorant
Finding the right deodorant can be frustrating.it may take a few tries to find one that works well with your biochemistry and daily demands.if your current pick isn't working for you,it's time to kick it to the curb.you don't have to try every deodorant on the shelf to find the right one,but pay attention to active ingredients.if it uses baking soda or tea tree oil as the active ingredient to beat ordor and are irritating,you can skip the one that list them as active.dont forget to keep an eye out for any irriatation while you are experimenting.smelking like rises is not worth having itchy armpits.
