Cleansing your body isn’t just about taking a random shower, yes, Beauties. You really have to make sure everything is clean, so that it doesn’t provide an opening for bacteria that cause body odor to breed.
According to the Cleveland Clinic, it is recommended to use anti-bacterial soap for perfect body hygiene. Rub it on parts of the body that often produce sweat, such as the armpits and other body folds.
Regularly shaving your armpit hair also makes sweat evaporate quickly and prevents the growth of bacteria that cause body odor. Don’t forget to wash your hair regularly and rinse the foam thoroughly.
2. A healthy lifestyle makes your body smell fresher
