Tips for Getting Rid of Body Odor

  • Stay away from refined sugar - it feeds bacteria and will increase your body odor many times over.
  • Go for a jog or sit in a sauna. You’ll be stinking it up at first, but after a while you’ll flush out your pores and notice that your sweat no longer stinks.
  • Anti-perspirants work to reduce odor, but they do so by clogging your pores and locking the odor-causing toxins and bacteria underneath the skin. This can lead to underarm cysts and pimples.
  • If all else fails, spot wash with soap and water.
  • Try and stay cool, sweat is a transmitter of the odor.
  • Apply an absorbent powder such as baby powder to your underarms after bathing.
  • A baking soda+water paste applied to the areas of smelliness can help neutralize existing odor.
  • Alcohol and tobacco are known to contribute to foul body odors - cut back on the day of your big date.
