Eliminate Body Odor

Friday, June 13, 2008

Are you plagued by body odor that seems to pop up during the most inopportune times? Below are steps and tips on how to eliminate that body odor.

Be sure to shower or bathe every morning. Use proper body cleansing agents such as shower gel. Wash everything completely. If you live in a desert or other water-starved area, a sponge bath for just the "smelly" areas should suffice.
Apply antiperspirant/deodorant daily, after washing.
Change your clothes, including undergarments, daily.
Store your clothes in places where air can get to and that smell nice. Consider scented paper as lining in your drawers.
Wash your hands frequently.
If the body odor doesn't seem to go away, no matter how much you wash; consider pro-biotics, or changing your diet. Don't bother trying to mask the odor, find out what is causing it, and treat it.
Body odor may also include halitosis, which is often a sign of gingivitis. Floss daily, preferably twice a day, and obviously brush your teeth too. Professional cleaning at least 2x a year.

If you have chronic body odor, it may be due to fungal growth. Anti-fungal shampoo, such as Nizoral(TM) applied to the armpits while showering (lather it up, leave it on for 3 minutes) can work wonders against this problem. Consult your doctor for stronger medications. Some anti-fungals are even more effective than Nizoral, but they tend to be prescription only.
You MUST use an antiperspirant, not just a deodorant as the bacteria that produce the odor can only grow if they have moisture.
Reduce the odor through diet if possible [avoid processed food], mask it [baking soda and cinnamon powder both work well for some people], but don't stop vital bodily processes.
If you suffer from foot odor, you should wear socks in your shoes (preferably cotton, which absorbs moisture and dry faster), and change them daily to keep your feet dry.
If you have a chronic body odor that never goes away, no matter how much you wash; you may have a bacterial imbalance in your digestive system. Take probiotics and the smell will go away.
Apply extra virgin coconut oil to your skin, it kills bacteria.
If you are taking any prescription medication, consult your doctor, as some medications may cause body odor, sweating, etc.
Let your deodorant dry completely before getting dressed.
Apply talcum powder to the armpits of your clothes and rub it in (remove the evidence on dark clothing by rubbing it off from the outside). Also apply it to your skin after deodorant, but don't rub it in.
Spray perfume onto your clothes, and put perfume in the washing machine when you wash them.
Dont put on colonge to mask odors it will make it worse.
Shaving beneath your arms can help eliminate body odor.
Use Chlorophyll geltabs or Chlorophyll liquid from Wild Oats/Whole Foods or health food store. It's in internal deodorizer that minimizes or eliminates body odor.
Foods with high sulfur content is a definite culprit for those with body odor problems. Look at websites for listings of foods.
