Bacteria and hair follicles are friends, which is why armpits, the groin area, and other hairy areas are the B.O. hot spots. Shaving or trimming down your hair in these areas can help keep things fresh and clean.
Skipping showers and proper bathing is often at the root of what causes sweat to smell. Remember to shower every day, especially after trips to the gym. Take your hygiene one step further with an anti-bacterial soap and finish with fresh-smelling deodorants from LYNX.
DRESS TO SWEAT LESS
Perhaps you already shave and shower regularly. So why do armpits smell afterwards? The answer could be in your wardrobe. Synthetic fabrics such as rayon, nylon, and polyester don’t allow much airflow so switch it up and go for some organic options like cotton, wool, and linen.
LEAVE YOUR SHOES AT THE DOOR
Aussies might be onto something with their love of walking barefoot. Socks and shoes make it difficult for sweat to evaporate. Give your toes some breathing space by going barefoot when you can or opting for looser-fitting options.
WATCH WHAT YOU EAT
Did you know that diet can affect the way your sweat smells? The most common food culprits behind bad B.O. include spicy foods, garlic, hot peppers, and curry. Try cutting back on them and see if you notice a change.
