Easy ways to get rid of body odour

body odour

It’s one of the most common skin woes, body odour can happen with anyone. But there’s no need to ignore that unpleasant smell that comes with your skin. Here are ways to alleviate it…

-Take a bath: This may seem de rigueur, but there really is nothing like a shower to get rid of skin smell. Showering twice a day removes sweat and surface bacteria. Use an antibacterial soap or medicated scrub.

-Make dietary changes: Often, foods which are strong smelling such as garlic and onions, can get carried into perspiration, causing odour. Vegetables that have ‘sulfur’ compounds are also known to be a cause. Cut down the intake of these ‘offensive’ foods, after checking with your nutritionist.

-Keep your underarms clean: The area can be be a breeding ground for bacteria. Shave or remove hair regularly to stop body odour from developing there.

-Quit smoking: Chewing tobacco and smoking escalates the production of free radicals, which in turn causes bacteria to form on the skin.

-Hydrate yourself well: We can’t stress on this enough! Water is key to flush out toxins from the body and eliminate bacteria. Go beyond the prescribed 8-10 glasses per day, especially in the summer.

-Use apple cider vinegar: Apple cider vinegar is regarded as a powerful bacteria-fighting ingredient which removes body odour by balancing the skin’s pH level. Either rub some of it on the underarms, keep it on for a few minutes and then wash it off, or add a cup of apple cider vinegar to your warm water and let the skin soak in this for 5-6 minutes, daily.

– Try a rosemary bath: The herb, mostly used in culinary ways, is another effective remedy. It has odour-fighting properties and has shown to be able to destroy bacteria. Steep half a cup of dried rosemary leaves in 4-5 cups of water and add this to your bath.
