Here are 10 things you need to know about body odour.
- What we eat and drink affects our body odour.
- Our sweat is supposed to be odourless. It’s true!
- What we eat and drink can contribute to body odour
- In most studies conducted it was found that food and meals
containing chilli, fish, red meat, onion, garlic, pepper, vinegar,
cheese, cabbage, radish, (dairy) milk products, and fish
- Drinks with caffeine or alcohol may also cause you to sweat
(and smell) more.
- Eating a clean, healthy, mostly plant-based diet will help
improve body odor
- Avoid Anti-perspirants: they block our sweat glands. Which
may prevent odor temporarily, but the body NEEDS to sweat.
We don’t want all that staying inside of us. As a result, we
become dependant on the product and if we stop using it,
we sweat and stink more.
- Toxins in our body (from food, water and the environment) can
affect our body odour. These changes the bacteria in our the
body and our sweat.
- Do not use antibacterial soaps! This might work to get rid of
odour at first, but your body will increasingly need more and
more to stop the stink.
- Ingredients such as coconut oil (antibacterial) and baking soda (absorbs odor) are fantastic. Make sure they are in your deodorant
