If you’re reading this, chances are you’re someone who sweats and smells a lot. I used to as well. In fact, almost all my life, up until a few weeks ago, I smelled like a sweaty horse. I kid you not. But not anymore. I now follow the tips below and always feel fresh as a daisy. It’s priceless.
1. Shower twice a day
Let me repeat it: Shower twice a day, once in the morning and once in the evening. The reason why you should shower in the morning is because not only does your body perspire at night, but it also produces oil. Thus, you need to wash off that sweat and oil, otherwise it’ll just be sitting on your skin all day. So this is a must. You should then shower again in the evening to wash off the sweat, and oil, you’ve accumulated throughout the day. If, let’s say, you’re too exhausted to do so, at least wash your armpits at the sink.
2. Use a coffee scrub
When you rinse off your shower gel, apply coffee scrub on freshly shaved armpits and gently massage it for a minute or so. Then rinse. The coffee scrub will eliminate any lingering smell of sweat. I’m currently using the Basd Organic Arabica Coffee Scrub. It’s formulated with organic Arabica coffee, sweet almond il and Vitamin E, and is also plant-based.
3. Use a deodorant from Humble Brands
If you’re looking for a natural deodorant that works, then you absolutely have to get your hands on a Humble Brands deodorant. I’ve tried EVERY deodorant on this planet, natural and none-natural, and the only one that actually works is the one from Humble Brands. I’m not kidding. It’s magical. It only contains the following clean ingredients – fractionated coconut oil, non-GMO corn starch, all-natural baking soda, beeswax and high-quality essential oils – and has no aluminum, alcohol, dyes, parabens or artificial fragrance. Plus, it’s cruelty-free. But make sure to apply it on freshly cleaned skin.
4. Choose breathable fabrics
How much you smell will also largely depend on the type of clothes you wear. Bacteria LOVE tight clothes and they love fabrics like polyester and nylon. And when these bacteria show up, they’ll make you stink. Thus, avoid those fabrics at all times. So what fabrics should I be wearing, you may ask. Opt for cotton, bamboo, merino wool or linen. And the looser the clothing, the better.
5. Wash your clothing regularly
Please, please, please, wash your clothes regularly. And when I say regularly, I mean almost after every wear. Don’t be the person who sniffs her own clothes, says ‘oh it’s fine for another day’ and hangs them over chairs just to wear them a few days later. Once your clothes smell, even if it’s a tiny bit, they belong in the washer. Period.
So tell me, will you be trying those tips? If so, let me know if they work.
