Simple Tips to Manage Body Odor This Summer

New Delhi. Body odour is a common problem that can affect anyone. However, the problem peaks during the summer season when our bodies start sweating in response to the hot and humid weather conditions.

Contrary to popular belief, sweating by itself doesn't cause body odour as human sweat is odourless. When the bacteria on the skin break down the protein molecules in sweat, the body emits a foul odour. Body odour can occur due to poor personal hygiene, diet, and in rare cases, some medical conditions. Here, some tips you can follow to avoid bad odour during summers. 

Use Nilgiri oil 

To avoid the smell of sweat, you can add eucalyptus oil to bathing water. Apart from removing the bad smell of sweat, it will also protect the skin from many types of fungal infections.

Neem leaves

To avoid the smell of sweat, take bath with water from neem leaves. Neem leaves have antibacterial properties that prevent sweat bacteria from growing. Apart from this, you will also be protected from skin infections in summer. Add rose water in bathing water. Rose water will give a pleasant fragrance and will also make you feel fresh.

Alum in water

If you sweat a lot, then just before bathing, dip a piece of alum in water and massage it for about 5 to 8 minutes. This eliminates bacteria and you will be able to remain smell free even in summer. Apart from this, you can also take bath by mixing alum in water.

Include lemon, curd 

To avoid the smell of sweat, it is important to maintain proper eating habits. Include lemon water in your diet. It is helpful in fighting the bacteria that cause odor in sweat. Apart from this, include curd in your daily diet. Both these things also keep your health good. Consumption of curd is also beneficial in UTI (Urinary Tract Infection) infection.
