The mixture of sweat, bacteria and dirt from the environment that get accumulated on your skin results in body odour.
It gets stronger with the dirt buildup and an irregular hygiene routine. Here are some tips you can follow to keep your underarms odour free. Mix together a tbsp of bentonite clay with a tbsp of rosewater. Add 1 tsp of apple cider vinegar to it and spread a thin layer of this detox mask on your armpits. Let it dry and wash off after 15 minutes. The properties of these ingredients will balance the skin’s pH levels, draw out impurities and odour causing toxins from your skin. Deodorants are the perfect additions to your morning routine. Try out an alcohol free, mild and gentle deodorant that not only keeps body odour at bay but also cares for your sensitive underarm skin. A few drops of rosemary oil, peppermint oil or tea tree oil on your armpits will also keep your underarms smelling fragrant and keep you from sweating profusely. Try using a hand sanitizer or wet wipes to freshen up your underarms as they remove bacteria.
If you’re very conscious about bad breath, here’s how you can reset some of your basic hygiene practices. Drink plenty of water as this keeps your mouth moist at all times. Swish cool water in your mouth whenever you feel like you’re developing bad breath. Swish with an antibacterial mouthwash as it kills bacteria and any buildup which are responsible for halitosis. Scrape your tongue with a tongue cleaner or the back of your brush every morning to decrease the odour causing fungi and bacteria.
Snack on parsley, cloves, raw carrots or apples as they are nature’s toothbrushes & help clear your mouth of debris. Green tea & black tea prevent bad breath. One of the most common feminine concerns that we face on a daily basis is vaginal odour. To combat it you should mix ½ tsp of alum in a glass of water and drink up. Alum stops fungal growth by preventing the bacteria from gripping the vaginal wall. Clean pubic hair with coconut oil as it has natural antibacterial properties that help control odour. Wear cotton and soft fabric panties as they wick away all the sweat and keep the area clean and odour free.
