Skincare- Dealing with body odour...

Body odour aka bromhidrosis is the unpleasant smell that can occur when you sweat. the sweat itself does not smell, but the unpleasant smell comes from bacteria on the skin that breaks the sweat down into acids. Anyone who has reached puberty can produce body odour, so its really not about effizy, lol..
However, things that can make the odour worse include:
1. Personal hygiene
2. Being overweight and
3. Eating rich and spicy food(I am sure there are a whole lot of other things too, pls contribute your ideas through the comments).

The best way to deal with body odour is to keep all areas of your body clean and free from bacteria. areas prone to sweating include armpits, genital area, and feet.

Taking regular showers using good quality liquid soap will help, especially paying particular attention to the areas mentioned above. regular shaving of your armpits can also help cuz the hair in your armpits traps sweat and odour and this provides ideal conditions for bacteria to multiply.

Changing diets could also go a long way. Try non-greasy meals, and eat lots of fruits.
Do try SURE MOTION SENSE (also available for guys). How does this work? When you use this anti perspirant, the more you move around the dryer you become. Magic! However, if u find that you are still sweating profusely, maybe its time to visit a doctor or consider botox.
Hope to see you in my next post on "Tips for the Embassy"
