Human skin is slightly acidic when it is dry. That condition is an excellent deterrent to bacterial buildup. But when the skin gets wet due to perspiration, then that’s when you get body odor issues.
Stay poised and sweat-free even in the most harried situations. Sweating can lead to body odor. Body odor can then lead to embarrassment.
by James Horner, author of ‘Sweat Free For Good!’’
Here are practical and effective tips to reduce perspiration and its unsightly effects.
- Hygiene is very important. Shower daily and wash your sweat-prone areas thoroughly. Sweat buildup is eliminated by showering. The same goes for the potential odor problem.
- Try dietary remedies. If you have malodorous odors that result from excessive perspiration, you might want to examine what you have been eating. Garlic, onions, pungent spices, and hot peppers leave you with body odor. The same goes for coffee, alcohol, and meats. As for healthy home remedies, try drinking 1-2 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar 2-3 times daily. Teas are also excellent body-odor remedies. 1-2 cups every day of sage tea or kombucha (a type of fermented Chinese tea) eliminate toxins and reduce body odor.
- Practice a little bit of anger management. Dark moods and strong emotions increase the production of sweat. Reduce stress by learning deep-breathing exercises and relaxation techniques. They do not only control your sweat response; they also contribute to your emotional wellness.
- Wear clothes made of cotton. Synthetic fabrics do not allow your skin to breathe, leading to sweating and sometimes skin irritation.
