In order to reduce body odor, an individual must improve on their personal hygiene. Body odor results when bacteria reacts with sweat glands. Regular shaving of pubic hair will prevent a swampy environment for the growth of bacteria, so let’s just be interns and shave everyday. Therefore, if a person sweats regularly they are liable to smell bad. It is very beneficial  someone with body odor baths regularly with antibacterial soap.

Breakfast is good, but let’s not use all our baking soda to prepare pastries. Baking soda can be used in place of roll ons or deodorant.

Baking soda can be used as a natural deodorant because:

  1. It absorbs sweat faster from the skin and keeps it dry.
  2. It kills bacteria.

This helps to neutralize smell and therefore prevents excessive body odor.

People usually concentrate on the odor that emits from their armpits and totally forget about that purge smell from their feet after they remove their shoes. They should try as much as possible to keep their shoes and sneakers dry always to prevent bacteria growth. Also, changing shoes regularly will prevent odor from staying so concentrated in one shoe.
