Beyond doubt, none of us would want to see our bodies feeling stingy. Body odor is perhaps one of the most detachable things and we try our best to avoid people who have a bad body odor. Mostly people look up to deodorants in order to hide this odor but there are others who go for natural remedies owing to their sensitive skin.

1. Body odor is primarily the result of unhealthy eating, what we eat has a direct effect on our bodies. Hence, you need to lower down the intake of junk food like highly processed meat, sugarycereals etc. A change in your dietary habit will cleanse your body and help in reducing the odor too.

2. In order to cleanse the body from within, drinking half a teaspoon of apple cider vinegar in one glass of water will be quite effective because it contains cleansing properties.

3. Drinking a cup of sage tea is also considered effective in reducing body odor. This acts as a purifier and helps in eliminating toxins from the body.

4. You can also use a small amount of hydrogen peroxide dissolved in water for washing the underarms.

5. Try to skip from using garlic and onion in your diet because they may make you breathe bad.

6. Chewing parsley is known to freshen up the bad breathe. You may also chew alfalfain order to neutralize the body odor.

8. These days various natural and organic deodorants are available in the market which are a must buy. They help to control the body odor. Go for crystal deodorants which contain ammonium alum.

9. Wiping your underarms and other genital areas with a natural sterilizer is also considered effective. Wipe using tea tree oil, apple cider vinegar and witch hazel.

10. White vinegar is also beneficial in reducing body odor. Just take a cotton ball and dip it in white vinegar and apply underarms instead of using a deodrant. This gets absorbed quickly.

11. Applying baby powder underarms is also considered effective because it helps in reducing sweating.

12. Rosemary too is considered an effective herb in reducing body odor. Just put 8 drops of rosemary oil in 1 ounce of water and apply it underarms.

How to Get Rid of Body Odor with Lifestyle Changes

1. If you want to really get rid of body odor then staying clean is the main aspect. You need to maintain proper hygiene so as to never let sweat accumulate in your body. Bathing daily and changing clothes will keep the sweat and ultimately odor away from your body.

2. Always use good quality shower gel and bathing soap and wash your underarms with much more care.

3. Avoid using antiperspirants and deodorants because they are likely to make the situation worse instead of improving. This is so because underarm sweat is caused by bacteria and when you use these deodorants it acts asa food for these bacteria and thus the odor increases.

4. Though many of us change our clothes daily but when it comes to changing our undergarments we are a bit lazy. Make it a rule to change them along with the socks ona daily basis.

5. Proper storage of clothes is also a must, make sure they are kept in a place where they receive proper air so they will stay fresh.

6. Choose to wear more of natural fabrics because cotton absorbs perspiration better than any other kind of clothing.

7. Scrubbing your body with a good exfoliator is effective in reducing body odor as this helps to remove the dead skin cells. Mix oatmeal and yoghurt together and use them as a good exfoliator.

8. If you suffer from mouth odor then flossing your teeth at least twice a day is required.

9. If the body odor does not go away even after a change in your lifestyle then it is better to consult a doctor who will perhaps give you a better advice as you might be suffering from a problem called as Bromhidrosis.
