6 Easy and Effective Solutions for Body Odor

We often use perfumes or deodorants to hide our body odor from getting embarrassed in public but are these things a perfect solution for body odor.


Well, Joshua Zeichner, who is director of a cosmetic and clinical research in the department of dermatology at Mount Sinai Hospital in New York, believes that perfumes aren’t the perfect and long-lasting solutions, however, one can use for a short term.

Zeichner has listed six easiest and effective solutions for body odor:

#1 Diet

Foods like onion, garlic are rich in scents which can mess with your breath odor and eventually with body odor.

So, it is advised to have a bland diet in order to control body odor. Additionally, one should also drink plenty of water.

Zeichner also advises that if the problem still persists then put few drops of peppermint oil on your tongue.

#2 Stress

Stress triggers few glands in the body which are responsible for body odor, especially in the underarms and groin area.

So, it is advised to go for regular meditation or Yoga to get relief from Stress.

#3 Cloths

If you mostly wear unbreathable fabrics such as rayon or spandex, then the chance of body odor increases a lot.

As per as a research, people who wear fabrics like cotton, silks, and wools, tends to have less body odor.

#4 Cleanliness

It’s the most common thing by which people can keep themselves ‘odorless’.

Regular bath, no excess hairs in underarms & private areas, clean clothes.

#5 Apple Cider Vinegar

The acid which is found in Apple Cider Vinegar inhibits the growth of bacteria, including of that type which makes sweat smell.

However, keep in mind that it may cause skin irritation, so check before applying.

#6 Herbs
