Sweating is a natural process through which the body flushes out toxins and fights diseases. Sweat contains a compound known as dermcidin that can destroy microorganisms on contact and keep our body clean.
To fight unpleasant body odor, most of use antiperspirants and deodorants which do nothing more than mask the bad smell. Additionally, these products contain a large amount of toxins which can enter our body and disrupt our hormonal balance, causing a variety of problems. When toxins accumulate on our skin, they can easily enter the body and circulatory system, affecting the way it works. This is why you should ditch antiperspirants and fight body odor with natural solutions which will do no harm. Eliminating body odor naturally is easier than you think – continue reading below to see what you need to do.
Cut a fresh lime and rub it on your underarms, then leave the area to dry before putting your shirt on. This will destroy all the bacteria in your armpits and prevent the accumulation of microorganisms which are responsible for the odor.
Sweat itself doesn’t have a bad smell – the actual odor is caused by the degradation of the bacteria in your armpits. Lime juice is a powerful antibacterial agent that can prevent the bacteria from multiplying and keep you smell fresh. Using limes on your armpits is a far better and safer solution than antiperspirants and deodorants, and is environmentally safer as well.
