Body Odor Remedies - Easy to do Tips on How to Effectively Remove Body Odor

Every person is created unique - and so is their smell. Each of us has a distinctive smell which is all normal. This only becomes a problem if the smell has become strong and offensive. Offensive body odor is caused by bacteria along with sweat that are stuck in closed areas, such as the armpits, groin and feet, that cannot evaporate freely. One of the best body odor remedies is still to bath or shower frequently so the bacteria can be liberated.

The following are simple, easy-to-do tips on how to effectively remove body odor.
  • If you feel self-conscious about your smell, you could try using a deodorant. But remember that deodorants do not stop you from extreme sweating. It only merely disguises the smell.
  • An anti-perspirant will do wonders if you perspire heavily. What it does is it dries out sweat glands and stops it from producing sweat. Do not apply anti-perspirant, deodorant or any chemical onto broken skin as it may get infected.
  • There is no need to use a vaginal deodorant and indeed these can only cause irritations. Daily washing with soap and water should be sufficient. However, if the smell becomes offensive and you experience vaginal discharge, you have to consult your gynecologist as it may be a more serious problem such as vaginitis or any vaginal infection.
  • If you have a smelly feet, one of the factors causing this is that you are wearing is too tight such that it is not allowing the sweat to evaporate. Avoid shoes made of synthetic materials and those with synthetic linings.
  • Wear socks that are made of pure cotton as this material absorbs sweat.
  • You have to wash your feet thoroughly and make sure that you dry them thoroughly as well. Foot powder is also advisable. Sprinkle foot powder before putting on your socks and shoes. It works the way anti-perspirant works, so it's very effective.
  • Wear clean clothes. Obviously, I don't have to elaborate on this.
Remember these simple body odor remedies as not having it is almost the same as living a clean life. Not only will you feel good if you don't have body odor but you will also gain lots of confidence.
