My body odor made me realize for the first time that am into adolescence age. Am not sure about the reason why it didn’t start before.
Well, I tried deodorant but at the end of the day it was very unpleasant experience. Experts say that body odor changes depending on what you eat. Diet and certain medication can make you smell bad.
Fortunately, there are several home remedies that help to get rid of body odor.
I personally used shampoo to fight odor. Yes, you heard it right. Shampoo that you use on your scalp has ability to fight bacteria.
Step: 1 Bath Regularly
This may seem simple but it is very important. Even if you think your body is clean without sweat. This doesn’t mean that you must spend hours together in bathroom rubbing your skin.
Choose antibacterial soap and apply it over entire body.
Step: 2 Shampoo
Along with your scalp, shampoo your armpits and groin area. Let the shampoo be on your skin for few seconds or 1 minute if you can. Then rinse it off with water.
Step: 3 Deodorant
Pat dry your skin with a soft cloth and apply deodorizing powder under armpits. I personally don’t use any powder, but I use perfume which is optional.
Step: 4 Wear Breathable Fabrics
Bacteria invade moist and dark areas. Wear clothes that allow your skin to breathe easily.
Never wear clothes for more than a day. Bacteria easily invade and the unpleasant smell haunts you.
Step 5: Avoid Eating Pungent Foods
Foods such as garlic, onions and meat must be avoided. Drink enough water and fruits with rich water content.
Shave your armpits regularly once in a week. Make sure to use clean trimmers and trim closely.
