Body odor—what to do when it's you who smells.

 

The best ways to get rid of body odor are:

 

  • Washing dailymake sure to pay extra attention to your underarms and other favorite bacteria hangouts.
  • Wearing clothes that breathecotton, for example, absorbs and also ventilates better than materials like polyester.
  • Using a deodorant or antiperspirantlike Secret Scent Expressions® or Secret OutlastTM.

 

 

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 www.facebook.com/secret.

@Prettygurl4444 Sit around the house a couple of days and just do your best to get as sweaty as possible and just lay all around him, give him hugs, stretch, just make sure he smells sweat and he SHOULD give in and drive you to the store immediately!

I have more of a sweaty problem than an odor problem, so I would rather use an antiperspirant. I got a sample from school during the 5th grade "talk", so when that runs out I'll have to ask my mom!
