Body odour is the perceived unpleasant smell our bodies can give off when bacteria that live on the skin break down sweat into acids. Body odor leads to many embarrassing situations in our daily lives. Today I share some top hacks to get rid of a body odor if you follow these I am sure you are free from body odor…so let’s start…
1. Shave your Armpits/Stay Clean ( hack for body odour )
Body odour remedies include showering or bathing daily, and if you know you have a sweat problem, use antibacterial soap. The less hair you have, the less encouragement there is for bacteria to breed, so shaving or trimming armpit and groin hair can help.
2.What should I apply:
Many people don’t know how bad they smell until they face an embarrassing situation. So, they are not much worried about using deodorants or perfumes. Everyone should have a habit of using perfumes or deodorants so they smell good. If you deodorants and perfumes cost you more then you can have the number of home remedies to stay away from body odor…
Lemon ( Hack for body odour )
Lemon juice increases the pH levels of the body and keeps it dry thereby preventing the growth of bacteria. Add a few drops to the bath water. Or you can apply directly on your armpits after bath.
Dilute a spoonful of lemon juice with a cup of water and dab it on your child’s armpits with a cotton ball soaked in the concoction. Leave it for ten minutes and rinse it with water.
Baking Soda( Hack for body odour )
Baking soda or bicarbonate of soda is a white crystalline compound with many health benefits. Here is how it can help:
- It absorbs moisture from the skin and keeps it dry.
- It acts as a natural deodorant agent to prevent body odor.
- It kills bacteria and neutralizes / alkalizes the body to prevent excess sweating and odor.
- Baking soda will lower the pH level of the sweating parts to counteract the acids in sweat.
- Dust baking soda on the places where you sweat the most.
- Let it sit for few minutes to absorb the sweat.
- Discard the excess baking soda and wear clothes as normal.
Alum is known as Fitkari in Hindi has a number of benefits. You have heared from your elders about Alum. Use alum block on pre-washed arms on alternate days. Anti-bacterial as well as germ-killing qualities living in alum will combat and restrain bacterial infection.
Cleanse with apple cider vinegar( body odour )
Dab a cotton ball soaked in apple cider vinegar on the parts of the body which sweat for a few minutes before a bath. Repeat this procedure twice a day before bath for best results.
Roll-ons ( body odour )
Roll-ons are one of the most common types of deodorants on the market. With the deodorants, you apply them directly to the skin. It is easy to use the roll-on, and it saves time when you are applying it. Most of them are clear, and they will not leave residue on the clothing if it dries completely. It is easy to apply roll-on deodorants on different parts of the body with ease. Also, most of them will come with a smooth application surface, so you will not experience scratching when you apply it.
3. Watch your diet
Cut back on foods and drinks that make you sweat more, such as hot peppers, curry spices, coffee, and alcohol. The pungent aromas of some foods will also come through in your sweat, so go easy on the garlic and onions.
4. Include more Herbs in Your Diet
As I said you need to avoid some foods, you should also include some foods in your diet. Herbs like green leafy vegetables help in reducing body odor because they have more water content.
5. Comfortable Clothing
Another golden rule and especially for hot climates is to wear cotton, jute, khadi, and all other natural fibers. Avoid synthetic clothes that do not allow the skin to breathe and avoid tight-fitting clothes. Wear loose airy clothes that allow air circulation, thereby keeping you cool.
6. Change your Towels Regularly
It is a good habit to change your towels and kerchiefs every 3 to 4 days. After bathing, we wipe our body with towels which holds moisture and dirt. Using it for a long time without changing can also be a cause for body odor.
7. Change Shoes and Socks Regularly
Now, you may wonder not changing shoes and socks regularly can be the reason for body odor. Our organs are interlinked each other, some people sweat more when they wear shoes or socks for a long time.
8. Use Right Deodorants and Perfumes
It may take a few tries to find a deodorant that works well with your biochemistry and daily demands. You don’t have to try every deodorant on the shelf to find the right one. Pay attention to active ingredients: If deodorants that use baking soda or tea tree oil as the active ingredient to beat odor are irritating or don’t work for you, you can skip every deodorant that lists them as an active ingredient (or that lists them high in the ingredients list).
