Simple Remedies For Body Odour.

Smell plays a role in most animals when finding a mate, and it is one of many characteristics that contribute to human mate selection. If you make it a habit to walk into work smelling like you haven't showered in a month you are definitely gonna loose a few friend. But even if you always smell like sunshine, your body odour could attract new friends to you. We all know that bacteria are to be blamed for body odour, the bacteria on our skin break down sweat molecules and produce a very bad smell.
The research presented at this year's Society for General Microbiology's Annual Year in the UK. Dr. Dan Bawdon, from the University of York, worked with Unilever, a consumer goods company to
assess 150 bacterial isolates' ability to produce (smelly) chemical compounds known as malodorants. Bawdon and Unilever ended up identifying the genes that encode the proteins for thioalcohols, which is one of the main causes of body odour, which are pungent in very small amounts. When thioalcohols were combined with bacterium Escherichia coli and grown in human sweat molecules, it resulted in body odour.
Now, let's talk about the SIMPLE REMEDIES FOR BODY ODOUR.

Lemon Juice is good for treating body odour. The acidic property of lemon juice helps lower the skin's pH level, which in turn makes it difficult for odour-producing bacteria to survive. Cut one fresh lemon into two halves. Rub one half of the lemon on your underarm. Its one of the simplest ways of treating bdoy odour. Make sure the juice gets onto your skin. Allow it to dry on its own, and then take your shower. Follow this remedy once daily until the odour is gone
completely. If you have sensitive skin, you can dilute the juice from half a lemon in one-half cup of water and apply it to your underarm using a cotton
ball. Leave it on for 10 minutes, and then wash it off with water. Do this once daily until you notice improvement.
Another remedy is baking soda. Baking soda helps absorb moisture from the skin,
it can absorb sweat and reduce body odour. Plus, it kills bacteria and works like a natural deodorant. Mix one tablespoon each of baking soda and lemon juice. Apply it to your underarm and other body parts where you sweat excessively.
Leave it on for a couple of minutes and wash it off with water; do not scrub. Then take a shower or bath. Do this once daily for a few weeks. Alternatively, mix equal amounts of baking soda and cornstarch. Apply it directly onto your dry underarm to prevent sweating as well as bad odour. Use this remedy when you need protection for several hours.
The last but not the least is apple cider vinegar. It is a powerful bacteria-fighting
ingredient. It also helps eliminate body odour by balancing the pH level of your skin. Soak a cotton ball in apple cider vinegar and rub it on your underarm. Wait two to three minutes and then take your shower. Follow this remedy twice daily, once in the morning and again before going to bed, until you notice
improvement. Alternatively, add one cup of apple cider vinegar to lukewarm bath water. Soak in this water for 10 minutes once daily. You can also add two teaspoons of apple cider vinegar along with a little honey to a glass of warm water. Drink it three times daily before
eating your meals.
