“Oh, you stink”
These are 3 words that I believe any of us would never EVER wish to hear someone say to us.
Yes, everyone sweats. It is human nature. But, that awful smell that comes with some of us is a very sensitive and embarrassing matter.
It is also important to know that the cause of the smell is bacteria! Here are some tips to let you smell good and feel good.
1) Watch What You Eat
That saying of “You are what you eat” did not come for nothing. As your body absorbs what you consume, it is always important to take note of your diet.
You might not be aware but sometimes food such as onion or garlic come out through your pores whenever you sweat. Also, there is food that makes you sweat more such as chilli or hot peppers.
Monitor the food you are eating to identify which causes you to smell bad. Ensure that you consume them in moderation rather than cutting it out completely.
2) Use Natural Deodorant
Deodorants play a big part in helping you mask the smell of the odour causing bacteria.
It takes a journey to find the right deodorant. This is because everyone’s body is different and your reaction to our deodorant might be different than your friend. Do your research and be patient with the process.
Remember, once you find the deodorant for you, apply it at night for the most effective results!
3) Choose Clothes Wisely
Did you know that man-made fabrics such as polyester and spandex are the best environment for bacteria to thrive in? These are breeding grounds for bacteria!
By switching natural fibre like cotton, hemp, wool or linen, you can help to prevent the breeding of bacteria.
4) Dry Up
Whenever you sweat, remember to pay yourself completely dry. When your skin is dry, it is much more difficult for bacteria to form and breed on your skin.
With these tips, we cannot promise that you will smell like a bed of roses. But we do hope it will reduce your body odour and confidence!
