Shower twice during summer or after exercise. Use fresh towels. Use anti-bacterial deodorant soaps. Dust armpits with baking soda after a shower, it neutralizes the sweat. You can also use baby powder. Avoid pungent food like garlic and red meat, stick to a vegetarian diet and hydrate well to keep unpleasant odors at bay. Wear natural breathable fabrics like cotton.
Curejoy Expert Claude C Butler Explains:
In generally healthy people, it isn’t sweat but bacteria that feed on the fatty sweat, secreted by the apocrine glands found in the armpits, is the culprit for the smelly armpits. Bacteria thrive on the warm and moist conditions releasing foul odor in the process. Getting rid of this bacteria and reducing the sweat they dine on are the only ways to combat this embarrassing problem.
Showering (even twice on hot summer days or after exercise) with antibacterial deodorant soap and wiping clean using freshly laundered towels (bacteria love your damp towels) should be a daily routine. Use Deodorants that not only create an inhospitable environment for bacteria but also leave you smelling good. Antiperspirants on the other hand contain aluminum salts that inhibit the sweat glands from producing sweat, keeping your armpits dry.
A natural time tested remedy is dusting baking soda after a shower, which neutralizes the sweat. Some also use baby powder, supplemented by baby wipes during the day to keep dampness away. Wearing natural-fabric clothes (like cotton/wool) allows your skin to breathe and allows air circulation preventing sweat accumulation. You can also try fitness wear made from breathable synthetic fabrics that absorb moisture from your skin and spread across the fabric where it evaporates quickly. Maintaining personal hygiene by removing or trimming your underarm hair can help sweat from accumulating.
Foods that have a strong aroma (like ginger, garlic, cabbage, vinegar, and spicy curries) contain volatile sulfuric substance that tends to linger in your system and reflect in your sweat. Avoid pungent food and red meat, stick to a vegetarian diet and hydrate well to keep unpleasant odors at bay.
If the problem persists seek medical help as your body odor can be a sign of various medical conditions including liver and kidney disease.
Deodorant Crystal I use a roll-on its called(naturally fresh) you can get it at Wal-Mart it has no aluminum chlorohydrate I've use it for 15 years when other deodorant failed me the crystals has helped
Antibacterial soap is toxic and causes cancer! Surprised to see it as one of the options. ... Also don't agree that dropping some of the foods like garlic, cabbage etc is a good idea as they are powerful antioxidants that help the body to rid itself from toxins naturally. .. fixing your gut should be the best way to address this issue with bacteria over growth and your immune system being able to control a healthy balance of good bacteria in the system. ..
EIt has been proven that anti bacterial soap is no more effective then regular soap - you ought to know this .
Oh wondered if it really worked. I sweat a lot. Sometimes it stinks, but i do cook and eat onions and garlic.
crystal rocks is mineral salts in chemical name..and also taws in philippines is all the same product..
After I lather I use an organic sugar scrub. After I shower I apply coconut oil. If I know I'll buy outdoors throughout the day and hight high physical activity I'll put on my own mix of deodorant. Corn starch, baking soda, coconut oil and choice of a few drops of essential oil. If and rarely I do begin to smell noticeable I cut a line and rub it on my underarms. It works instantly. ;) I've also noticed wearing less commercial deodorant helps. Ha
Onion and garlic are partly removed by the sweat/skin. Deodorants clog the sweatglands and perhaps lymphnodes(?link to breast cancer).So the natural baking soda solution and shaving hair not too short helps.washing frequently and using a cornstarch/bakingsoda mix,plus alternating with lemon is an alternative,just try to stay dry even if it means bringing a shirt to chang into!
The is a product out there called 'Routine cream'( all natural,contains clay,beeswax etc),the BEST!! https://www.facebook.com/routinecream
I make my own from 100 grams of fatakdi powder diluted with one litre water decanted into a spray bottle - lasts months and is really cheap!
Tussy deodorant. It's the best !!! It only cost 1.00 at Wal-Mart! I've been using tussy for 40 plus yrs !!
sometimes it's cause from food of eating too much chili....or some other stomach problems...tawas powder also it helps to protect odor smell..
I think you can ,,ask a doctor ,,some people just born to have a distinct body odor ,,but number one factor is cleanliness ,,to prevent it from getting bad always clean the area and make sure air dry it and once in a while apply the lemon When you feel you needed it ,,all natural ,,for me it works ,, try it. Maybe will also work for you
The acid from lemon will become alkaline which neutralized the ph balance of your underarm,,when the ph balance is abnormal then they create a a bad smell..so if you put lemon it will neutralizes your ph balance,,\U0001f44dall those deodorant only cover the smell and also it clog your pores ,,
Ok...well...I can't use deorderant it causes me to develop huge knots...so this works for me...5 black tea bags in a pot of water, add 1/4 cup of acv (braggs), and 1/4 cup of baking soda, let it cook together for about 5 minutes, no need to boil. Then take two wash cloths and soak in solution( you wanna do this in the shower) then take them and place on armpits till the warmth is gone, resoak, and repeat untill solution is gone or you get tired of it lol I do about 7 to 10 soaks. This kills the stink glands while allowing you to still sweat because...well we need to sweat lol
