What can I do to prevent body odor?
The best way to prevent body odor is by taking showers regularly and making sure to wash every part of your body. Plain soap and water is fine. There are no health benefits to using expensive soaps or body washes.
Other ways to prevent body odor include:
- Wearing clean clothes
- Using deodorant or antiperspirants
- Wearing cotton underwear and other natural fabrics. Man-made materials such as polyester, rayon and silk are not as breathable and can cause you to sweat more.
- Using a medicated foot powder or antifungal spray to prevent foot odor. It’s also important to air out sweaty athletic shoes/sneakers.
