Let’s be honest, it is extremely frustrating if you have to constantly think whether the other people around you do not feel the smell that comes from you. Well, it is time to stop this. We have prepared for you also some ways you can get rid of your body odor naturally.
#1 Eat and drink healthy
If you want to get rid of a problem, you need to deal with the problem starting from its roots. Since body odor comes from within it means that if you want to improve your lifestyle and all the things you take, like drinks and food. You can start with drinking lots of water, and forgetting about other drinks, like alcohol, coffee, and soft drinks. The best drink for your body is the water. The more water you drink, the more you will get rid of the toxins in your body. In other words, it will help remove all the bacteria that causes the bad smell naturally.
Another thing you should think of is what kind of food you eat, because this is the way how bad smell-causing bacteria may enter your body. Remember that you should include more fruit and vegetables in your daily meals, and less fast foods and fried foods.
#2 Use natural odor neutralizer
If even after turning the first step into a habit, you could sense that your B.O. is still bad, here is what you can try as well: a natural odor neutralizer. There are some natural products which applied on the skin neutralize any other smell, including the strong bad ones. For example, baking soda. If you happen to have no deodorant with you, but you can sense that you are starting to get sweaty, just gram some baking soda. You even do not need to use a lot, just as much soda as it is needed to cover lightly your armpits. It will neutralize the smell.
Another thing you can try is lemon juice or apple cider vinegar. They both consist of strong acids that neutralize the body odor. Apply some lemon juice on a cotton pad, and rub it a little on your armpits. If you prefer to use apple cider vinegar, mix it with the same amount of water. Pour it in a bottle and apply it daily on your armpits. It should be in the morning or in the afternoon when you are most active and sweat the most. However, do not apply deodorant over it. You may still use perfume, but just do not spray your armpits with it, because the mixture of smells will be too strong.
