6 Steps to Sweet Smelling Success

sweet smelling success

It's been a long time since I wrote an article in this perfume blog. I was so busy with my job that I was so tied up to it. But even with our busy lives we should not let our hygiene be put aside. Here, I'm going to share to you the 6 steps to sweet smelling success.

Did you know that body odor begins with sweat? The body has two types of sweat glands, and both types produce sweat that is made up largely of water. The eccrine glands, which are located on almost every part of the body produce the sweat that cools the body. The apocrine glands, which are located in the armpits, around the nipples, and in the groin produce sweat whose function at least in modern times is not clear. One thing is obvious, however. The sweat from the apocrine glands can make you stink because it contains a substantial amount of oil which provides food for bacteria. It's this bacterial feeding frenzy that causes the offensive odor. Here are six steps, tips or guide or whatever you may call it to come up smelling like roses.



Keep it clean. The best way to prevent body odor is to wash away the sweat that forms on the skin in the area of the apocrine glands to reduce the number of bacteria waiting there to feed upon it. Just take a bath regularly and it is best to use a deodorant soap.

Bathe your britches. Sweat that seeps into your clothing may remind you of it's presence at very inopportune times. What's more, dried bacteria containing sweat can damage the fibers of your clothing. You should wash your washable clothing each time you wear it.

Use a deodorant. For milder cases of body odor, a deodorant may help. Deodorants are considered cosmetics. Most contain a substance that help kill the bacteria that are waiting to feed on your sweat. They may also help mask body odor by substituting a more acceptable scent.

Get tough with an antiperspirant. Since body odor begins with sweat, one of the best ways to control it is to reduce the amount of sweat. Antiperspirants are classified as over-the-counter drugs because they are intended to alter a natural body function. They decrease production of eccrine sweat. While apocrine sweat contains oil upon which bacteria feed, neither an antiperspirant nor a deodorant can decrease apocrine sweat.

Beat irritation and odor. If you tried antiperspirants and deodorants and found that they irritate your skin, you might instead try an antibacterial soap such as chlorhexidine or an over-the-counter antibiotic ointment. Other options for sensitive skin include using talcum powder or baking soda in place of an antiperspirant or deodorant.

Quiet your diet. Certain food such as hot peppers, can affect the amount of sweat an individual produces. And the aroma of other pungent foods, such as garlic, can be carried in your sweat. If your aim is to prevent body odor, cut out foods like onions, garlic, hot spices, and beer.

I love spicy food and yes, one needs to pay extra attention to one's hygiene when one loves spicy cuisine. I take a shower two times a day and I definitely use a deodorant soap.

The Best of Buffalo said...

I am not much in spicy food but I do sweat a lot since the weather in my place is like an oven. What I do is to bath two times a day and I use deodorant. I never used anti-perspirant eversince.

tampa movers said...

Since it is warm out, I will sweat, but that does not mean I won't smell decent. Thanks.

Cotton Towels said...

Keeping clean is just general hygiene for most but there are many other factors that can affect underarm sweat. If you live/work in a warm atmosphere or work in a stressful environment then you will always sweat. Everyone is different and some people will suffer a little more than others.

The single best thing I have found is to use an alcohol based long lasting underarm treatment. I have tried this and was astonished by its effects. Really amazing !

A magnesium and zinc deficiency, diabetes, liver disease and chronic constipation can give rise to body odour. It is not certain how zinc and magnesium supplements help eliminate body odour but they work.

I have read that when you use antiperspirant deodorant it will cause your armpit to become dark. Armpit sweating is normal. But if its sting, that's another problem. Me, I make a paste of lemon juice and alum powder, instead of using deodorant. It works! anyways, thanks for this advice.
