Stop Excess Armpit Odor

You shower before bed and use your favorite deodorant just to wake up the next morning for whatever reason with strong under-arm odor. WTF!!! Why does this happen? Well there are a number of reasons but it could be caused by a change in your lifestyle or something you ingested during the day or night. Have you been under a lot of stress, working out often, eating a lot of fish, red meat, etc.?

Well you need to figure it out but there are some things to do that can help reduce the odor because the odor is caused by a build up of bacteria and deodorant alone only masks the sent for so long, depending on the level of bacteria it may make thing worse, anyway try these things they can help you out stinky… lol just kidding, I’ve been there but they will help

Step 1: Drink plenty of water, and avoid caffeinated beverages and alcohol.

Step 2: A balanced diet, that includes green leafy vegetables, fruits, and whole grains is another great way to reduce body odor.

Step 3: Anti-bacterial soap, use it when you shower or take a bath, you can still use your favorite smell good soap afterwards.

Step 4: Clean clothes, yeah change your clothes often and wash your dirty clothes often. You don’t want to wear the same clothes three or four day in a row the bacteria will just grow even if you shower it’ll still get back on your skin. At the very least change your shirt and undies, a stinky nether region is just as bad if not worse.

Step 5: Shave them pits, yeah I know where your coming from guys it itches! Well trim the hair with scissors, it’ll give the bacteria less places to hide, plus when your holding your woman she’s not using it as dental floss.

Step 6: Apply hand sanitizer under your arms if things are bad, yeah it’ll burn if the bacteria is bad but it’ll fade fast taking the odor with it.

Step 7: Use natural thing like lemons and/or limes by slicing them in half and rubbing them on your pits, I wouldn’t suggest rubbing it on other places that smell… unless it’s your feet but that’s another issue.

Step 8: Apply antiperspirants and deodorants to your clean pits. Deodorants will help mask your body odor associated with sweating while the antiperspirants will target the sweat glands and reduce  sweating which will reduce bacteria that makes you stink leaving you smelling fresher.

Step 9: Sage, Peppermint Oil, Witch Hazel, Tea Tree Oil, and Lavender oil all can be used to stop that funky smell, also Parsley, Rosemary, Lettuce, and even Walnut Leaves.

There are lot of stuff you can use, many are just chopped up and rubbed on the skin, others are added to water, and a few are ingested. I’m not going into great detail here, I’ve added links to the bottom of this article to two sites that do that quite well.

Well that is about as far as I’m going to take this, there are some medical issues that can cause under-arm odor and there are antiperspirants that you can use to help fight it also both over the counter and prescription.
