Body odor —w hat to do when it's you who smells.
The best ways to get rid of body odor are:
Washing daily — make sure to pay extra attention to your underarms and other
favorite bacteria hangouts. Wearing
clothes that breathe — cotton,
for example, absorbs and also ventilates better than materials like polyester.
Using a deodorant or antiperspirant —like Secret Scent Expressions
or ® Secret Outlast. TM
Deodorants vs. antiperspirants
Deodorants don't reduce sweat, they just partially cover
up the smell while antiperspirants help reduce sweat before it starts with an ingredient
called aluminum chlorohydrate. It actually reduces the perspiration process.
Deodorants work best when they go on after you've showered
and the skin under your armpits is slightly damp. Most deodorants or antiperspirants
are white, but some people don't like the white residue it can leave on their clothes.
You can find clear deodorants that do not leave residues. It's a personal choice
of finding what works best for you. Check out
