One experiences bad stench from the body when the bacteria breaks down sweat and the subsequent by-product is body odour. This usually takes place on a regular basis.
While it's good to have a handy roll-on or a deo, there are effective home remedies that might keep your armpits fresh all the time.
Here are some of the home remedies that you could try:1. Rose Water
Natural astringent, rose water can reduce the size of the pores present on the skin, and this subsequently can potentially decrease sweat production.
To use this: mix rose water with apple cider vinegar. Store this mixture in a bottle and spray on your underarms and other body parts as and when required.2. Lavender Oil
Lavender has anti-bacterial properties that can stop the growth of the odour-causing bacteria. Its essence emanates a soft fragrance. Add the oil to cornstarch and baking soda as they keep the skin dry, thereby preventing any accumulation of bacteria.
Try applying this concoction daily in order to see a visible difference.3. Apple Cider Vinegar
Apple cider vinegar has acidic properties that prevent the breeding of bacteria, which in turn, prevent foul body odour. Take some apple cider vinegar and directly apply to your underarms and other body parts using a cotton ball. Alternatively, in half a cup of ACV, mix a cup of water and then use a deodorant.4. Tea Bags
Now, this might sound a little funny but it works. Tea bags have tannins that keep the skin dry and prevent sweat formation. Just bring the water to a boil and add the tea bags. Pour this tea into your regular bath and soak in it for 15 to 20 minutes. Repeat at least thrice a week to see effective results.
