A couple of most frustrating things about the hot summer are hot sun, and sweat. But it is not just the sweat that is frustrating, it’s the odor that comes along with it. There are some quick and easy tips you can follow to get rid of body odor.
Take Bath Twice a Day
Taking bath two times a day is a must. Mix some freshly extracted lemon juice or add some lemon peels to a bucket full of water and let it steep in it for a few minutes. Use the water to bath yourself to remove body odor.
Remove unwanted hairs
Shave off or remove unwanted hairs near your groin area. These areas are more prone to sweat production when you are exposed to a heat source. And the presence of hair in these places will encourage the growth of odor-causing bacterias and increase your body odor.
Watch out for your Food
There is a deeper link between the food you eat and the way you smell. Eating onions, garlic, and spicy foods will trigger more sweat production and thereby increases body odor. Try to consume these foods in moderation to reduce your body odor.
Squeeze tulsi leaves and mix this extract with tea tree oil. Apply this over your armpits, leave it for a few minutes and take bath. This will remove the odor emerging from armpits.
Take a handful of mint leaves and boil it in water. Take this extract and mix it with water you use to take a bath. Taking a bath in this water will remove body odor and makes you feel fresh.
Drink Enough Water
It is a must to drink enough water every day. Drinking 3 liters of water on a daily basis will remove toxins in the body. This will, in turn, get rid of body odor.
Oats and Honey
Mix 1.4 cup oats with 2 teaspoon honey. Use this as a scrub while taking a bath. As this removes dead body cells, it will decrease body odor.
Mix three drops of lavender oil with water and take a bath in it. This not only removes body odor but also enables deep sleep.
Take a bowl of warm water, mix a handful of rose petals in warm water and leave it overnight. Filter this water next morning and mix it with water used for taking a bath. Bathing in this water will naturally bring down body odor.
