It's not unusual for people to sweat, but what makes it unpleasant is the body odour that comes with sweating. Although not everyone has body odour, people who regularly eat spicy food, those who are obese, suffering from certain medical conditions and those that do not practice good hygiene can suffer from body odour. Personal care (especially including a crystal deodorant into your daily routine) should be one of your top priorities if you want to look and feel good about yourself. Feel confident and prevent body odour by following our tips below!
Cleanse & Use anti-bacterial soap
Water alone is not enough to clean out the bacteria that have accumulated in your underarms. You can use a cleanser – an oil cleanser is the suggested product for a thorough washout of deodorant and lotion buildup!
After cleaning and moisturizing your underarms with your cleanser, use anti-bacterial soap to kill body odour-causing bacteria.
Choose the right clothes
Another reason why you may be suffering from body odour is that you wear clothes that are too tight! Switch to more breathable clothing where there is enough space for your underarms to breathe. This will help prevent the accumulation of bacteria in this sensitive area.
Change your diet
Consuming spicy food can increase the likelihood of body odour due to the ingredients of this type of food. According to research, strong-smelling foods like curry and garlic can go through your pores and cause body odour. However, this doesn't mean you have to cut spicy food out of your diet completely. Instead, try reducing your intake of strong-smelling foods for a week or two and see if it makes a difference in your body odour.
Keep your underarms hairless
Bacteria grow faster in the presence of hair because it makes your underarm more prone to sweat which attracts body odour. You can consider to keep your underarms hair free to minimize this and maintain a fresh, clean feeling all throughout!
Apply natural crystal deodorant
Although you may have already cleansed and moisturized your underarms, you will still need to apply deodorant that can protect your underarms as you make it through the day. However, not all deodorants are created equal.. Conventional deodorants and antiperspirants contain chemicals such as potassium alum and aluminum zirconium, which can be extremely harmful to the skin.
To avoid these harmful chemicals, we recommend opting for more natural options such as Total Image's unscented natural deodorant range - Smelly No More Roll on Crystal Deodorant and Smelly No More Spray. These organic, chemical, alcohol or fragrance-free option are perfect even for those with sensitive skin.
Made from pure and natural mineral salts, not only do these deodoratns effectively eliminate body odour, but they also serve as a great natural remedy for skin bleachingas it prevents skin darkening and doesn't stain your clothing! Say goodbye to white marks and feel confident, fresh all day long.
Make Smelly No More your go-to solution for unwanted body odour! Simply moisten the crystal deodorant stone with a little bit of water, then apply it directly to clean skin - that's all you need to do. As for the Smelly No More Spray (as its name implies), just spray away on your underarm area and enjoy freshness throughout your day!
