The right guide to keeping body odour at bay

Everything you need to know about body mists!

In Summers, we know how you want to feel cool, refreshed, revived and rejuvenated but instead, get irritated by the heat, frustrated because of such laziness and tired because of your overflowing sweat and constantly wiping it off. Besides? Who likes to roam around especially during the day, covered in sweat and drown into fatigue. With this season around the corner, there are a lot of things that need to be taken care of. First comes your health and well-being. Staying hydrated is the key, it’ll get you energized and level up liveliness. There’s a lot of things that summers bring with them, sweat being one of them. Well, for a matter of fact you sweat all twelve months of the year, but during summers, it reaches the highest level. And you know what it brings with itself? Body Odour. It’s nothing to be ashamed of and is common to everybody. We haven’t come across one person who doesn’t feel sweat sliding down their body that leads to a not so pleasant experience.

Body odour happens when your sweat is mixed with skin bacteria and causes somewhat a foul smell where the changes depend on medical conditions, hormones and what not. Doesn’t matter how clean you keep yourself, how many times you take a bath and other things, you find it sticking by your side. But, there’s nothing to worry about. There are ways you can get rid of body odour. And yes, keeping and spritzing perfumes and deodorants is one of them, a basic requirement during summertime but let’s take a look at some other ways of how you can get rid of the body odour.

1. Have a refreshing bath

Is there anything more relaxing than a cold shower using your favourite products? Getting rid of your stress, tension, dirt, sweat and especially the body odour that you picked up feels heavenly. There's no denying that. Use anything you need, bath salts, body washes or soap, scrubs or whatever you find comfortable, you'll find yourself rejuvenated and fresh throughout.

2. Use shower gels / body washes or soaps

Taking a cold shower during the day is fine, but to top it up by using shower gels feels divine undoubtedly. It's about the subtle aroma that excites us, but that's not the only thing it is used for. It gets rid of pollution, dirt, sweat, oil and greasy pollutants on your skin and that's the reason it being the number 1 product to use in your bath sessions. If you think these three are the same, then you're completely wrong! Body washes have a runny texture and are on the thinner side meanwhile shower gels have a gel based texture and a bit thicker than the former and are beneficial for acne prone skin. On the other hand, soaps are completely different. As the name suggests, they are solid and shaped like one, containing a lot of fragrance. However, the purpose they serve is the same - to clean skin.

3. Use of antibacterial products

It might not make sense to you but it works wonders. As we said, body odour is caused when your sweat is mixed up with the bacteria present in your skin and causes a foul kind of smell. Natural ingredients such as honey, turmeric and coconut oil are considered to be few of the finest antibacterial ingredients! Thus, using products that have them as their key ingredient is going to work for sure. Starting from lotions to body oils to body SPFs, it can absolutely become the game changer.

4. Keeping good hygiene your top priority

Yes, hygiene is a big factor when it comes to body odour. Keeping yourself and your surroundings clean can do no harm. It's indirectly the primary cause of body odour! The reason behind being simple - we keep ourselves clean by showering daily and it's important. But, due to certain internal factors, one can lack hygiene. Thus, bathing is not the only way to take care of it. Making sure you stay off dirt, keep yourself clean, wash your hands thoroughly doesn’t matter what you do. This includes everything starting from head to toe, that indirectly contributes to body odour. Thus, keeping yourself in good hands is always a better idea. 

One of the best things to go for during Summers to keep body odour at a distance is by using Body Mists! You must be thinking it's common to use perfumes and deodorants during this time of the year, but we're not talking about them! These are different from each other as well. Perfumes tend to have a comparatively more concentration of fragrance oils mixed with water or alcohol while on the other hand, body mists are a little bit lighter in nature as the concentration of fragrance oil mixed with water and alcohol is lesser in quantity. In addition to this, perfumes can last for a long period of time, body mists need to be reapplied after every few hours and that’s why it’s a great companion to use during summer seasons! Just one spritz is enough to make you feel as fresh as a daisy. It can never go wrong, you know why?

1. Its lightweight nature brings freshness too

Since they contain more natural ingredients and

    sometimes, even with less or no amount of alcohol, thus making you feel gentle on the skin and as said, one spray is enough to make you drool over it because of its rejuvenating properties.

    2. Layering is always an option

    We know you can't always use perfumes on top of another, since it generates a very strong smell but this doesn't happen with body mists! With this product, you can do it seamlessly whenever you feel like due to its subtle aroma that is soft and sweet and gives a feeling of freshness.

    3. Gentle and subtle aroma

    Since body mists are lighter and more on the gentle side, the scent it provides is not that strong that’ll make you feel weird and won’t irritate your nose! One can use it throughout the day without any uneasiness.
