5 Things You Can Do to Eliminate Body Odor

5 Things You Can Do to Eliminate Body Odor

Smells attract the opposite sex. Pheromones are used by animals to attract their mates. Humans too are affected subconsciously by pheromones, with that unexplained attraction to certain members of the opposite sex, on a primal level.

At the same time, smells can make a person repulsive.

Fresh sweat contains water, salt, urea and in the case of male sweat, pheromones. That's why women might steal their guy's clothes to sniff or wear for that comforting scent. Traces of pheromones from their men linger on those clothes.

Stale sweat, on the other hand, stinks. In some parts of the body, the sweat is oily and bacteria breeds in that sweat as it eats up the substances in the sweat and produces waste from it. That waste gives you an embarrassing stench.

Body odor is detrimental to one's social life as the stench repels people around the affected person. The worst thing is that the affected person is rarely aware about his own body odor. Everyone else on the other hand, can barely breathe for the stink.

Here are some ways you can avoid such embarrassing situations.

1. Bathe with a deodorant soap.

2. Drink plenty of water daily to flush out the toxins, so less toxins will show up in your sweat.

3. Watch your diet. Spicy food and too much meat can affect your body odor.

4. Shower first thing in the morning and once you get back home after work or school.
