How to get rid of body odour

Is excessive sweating bothering you? Follow these tips to say goodbye to body odour this summer

Humidity levels are rising and perspiration is a major problem that Mumbaikars have to deal with every day. While everyone perspires, only some of us sweat excessively and that is when it becomes a problem. Excessive sweating, also known as hyperhidrosis, may be hereditary. It could also be caused due to hormonal imbalance, high emotional excitement, spicy foods, exercise, or stress. Here are a few things you could follow to ease out the problem.

Flush out toxins with water

You may have heard this many times before, but water not only cleanses your body, it also prevents underarm odour. In addition, having at least two showers is hygienic and will help combat excessive sweating and get rid of the offensive odour.

Wear the right clothes

Wearing cotton clothes helps your skin to breathe and you can deal better with excessive sweating. Avoid fabrics that are likely to create irritation and heat up the skin, causing excessive sweating.

Lime and lemony

Lime helps you reduce sweating, prevent body odour and bleach your under arm. You could rub one half of a lime (not too ripe) on your armpits. You may feel mild irritation. However, if you are suffering from rashes, avoid using lime.

Spray on some freshness

Cans of antiperspirants and deodourants do help to some extent in keeping body odour at bay, but it may not hold true for everyone. Antiperspirants usually work by clogging the pores, which stops sweat from reaching the surface of your skin. Though they help get rid of perspiration almost immediately, the chemicals in them could cause side-effects like irritation and discoloured skin.

Lose weight and minimise sweating

Start eating healthy and lose weight as excess weight leads to excessive sweating. If your weight is already normal, you need to include more fibre to your diet and avoid spices. This will help you to flush away all the toxins from your body.

Try vinegar to combat the problem

You may be surprised, but apply vinegar on your armpits before sleeping at night and let it dry naturally. Wash it off the next morning. Applying apple cider on your armpits can also help solve the problem of excessive sweating gradually.

Visit your doctor

- Visiting your doctor and getting a test done would help you find out the exact cause for excessive sweating.

- After all, sweating is just a regular function of our body that helps regulate body temperature.
