How to Stop Body Odor

Dear BeingGirl Experts,

I keep getting so smelly like b-o, and I try and shower every day, but the next day the smell just comes back. This never used to happen to me.

 

I started my period when I was 11, and now I'm 13. What are some body odor remedies?

Joanie,

The best body odor remedies are to shower or take a bath daily, making sure you pay attention to your underarms, wear clothes that breathe (like cotton), and to use a deodorant or antiperspirant.

 

Deodorants will not stop the sweat, instead they just partially cover up the smell. Antiperspirants help stop the sweat before it starts with a chemical called aluminum chlorohydrate. This actually stops the perspiration process.

 

Deodorants work best when they go on after you have showered and the skin under your armpits is slightly damp. You will find what product works best for you by trial and error. Many girls tell us that they prefer Secret Platinum.

 

Hope this is helpful,

Your BeingGirl Experts

I always make sure i apply deodorants and focus mostly on my underarms when i shower,I also carry an emergency perfume in my bag just in case i sweat too much after sports and i'm scared of having a body odour especially when talking to my friends or a boy.

There are safe, all-natural deodorant brands out there. No aluminum or parabens. Lavilin is the best in my opinion.
