Health Tips: See Ways To Prevent Body Odour!(must Read) by Kabidoye(m): 11:13pm On Dec 13, 2013
Ways You Can Prevent Body Odour Body odor, just like mouth odor, is an unpleasant thing that anybody can grapple with.... Medically referred to as bromhidrosis, experts say body odour occurs when the bacteria on the skin's surface breaks down sweat into acid, releasing malodorous chemical compounds in the process.
Here are some ways you can prevent Body Odor:
1. Bathe with warm water in the morning, at night and after any strenuous activity. Warm water killsoff bacteria that are present on the skin.
2. Use an antibacterial soap to wash areas that are prone to body odor.
3. Dust your underarms, your groin area and beneath the breasts with baking soda. This will absorb odor and prevent moisture that provides the ideal environment for odor-causing bacteria.
4. Soak a wash cloth in apple cider vinegar and wipe down areas of the body that contain bad odor. Besure to get in-between fat rolls andother areas where moisture can accumulate. - Follow the vinegar application with a clean dry wash cloth to remove excess moisture. If the skinis not thoroughly dried, odor-causing bacteria can accumulate and fungus may grow.
5. Use a crystal rock stick in place of deodorant. It will not reduce perspiration, but it will balance out the pH level on the skin, thereby reducing the development of odor-causing bacteria.
6. Chew parsley to neutralize body odor. The chlorophyll will even out the body's pH levels.
7. Carry baby wipes with you so you can wipe areas where odor occurs. Throughout the day, use a wipe under the arms and around the groin area.
8. Clothing: natural fibres allow your skin to breathe, resulting in better evaporation of sweat. Natural-made fibres include wool, silk or cotton.

9. Ensure you wear a fresh change of clothes daily. Recycling sticky undies is a definite no-no.

10. Invest in quality perfumes.

So you mean after sweating bucketfulls during one of their many vigorous prayer sessions, they feel it's okay to stink up the place with BO (Body Odour?)

How ungodly is that?

This isn't about Deeper Life or Lord's Chosen members, most Nigerians don't understand the use of deodorants!
Ayam tired of pple telling me to talk to my Nigerian friends to stop smelling!
Ayam tired of sitting close to some Nigerians and find it difficult to breathe! angry
Nd No, these people are not Deeper Lifers.
I even know Deeper Lifers who use deodorants.

^^ Very true.
Re: Health Tips: See Ways To Prevent Body Odour!(must Read) by baby124: 6:15pm On Dec 15, 2013
Ability to smell your self is very important. Some people can wake up the dead and pretend they cannot smell themselves. Invest in cotton clothes only if you are a sweaty person. Use good deodorant before any perfume. Body Odour and perfume mix is a disaster. If deodorant is too expensive, dusting powder is a wonderful alternative. This body Odour issue is a big problem in Nigeria. Enter any enclosed space and sometimes you want to dive for cover. Tenk

^^ Haha!

The smell of unwashed armpits eh?

A good scrub down with soap should solve the problem. Then after anti-perspirants and perfumes. Basic hygiene stuff.

How Nigerian can walk about without a care in the world, smelling like skunks beats me. I blame their parents.

Lol. Lmao. It's too much. Dusting powder alone is cheap and works very well for those who claim not to like strong scents or can't afford it. Even if you can't afford to smell nice, smell neutral. Also trimming the hairs in the armpits is very helpful for free flow of air. Funny that most people I know that smell are quite neat and fanatic with the neatness. Ability to smell yourself is very important. If I don't use deodorant in a day I am constantly smelling myself or paranoid about any smell around me. I don't know how they can claim not to smell a stench that announces them before their arrival. They need medical help with their sense of smell

^^ Too right. It's absolutely disgraceful.

You need to see the stock and range of age-appropriate deodorants and perfumes i've got for my teenage sons. At least three different types of bathing soaps in the bathrooms for them to choose from.

I don't mince my words to them if I catch a whiff of male musky smell on them. Ha! Nor be my pikins people got take say black always reek of BO!

Like I said, teach a child right and they won't depart from it. Even if they do, it'll always be at the back of their mind - the difference between right and wrong.

Keep one in your office or take along one when travelling.
It cleans everything after taking a pee or sh1t. Last a long time and you feel cool too to do ikwokirikwo at anytime cheesy

Even at home, use it.
Using a pant liner can not make you feel totally fresh down there during a long day.
Try it. Cost little and plenty in the pack.

^^ I'm totally with you on the baby wipes thingy.

Infact, I go for the scented ones. It beats having to use dry toiletrolls which can't take away all the crustiness around the bum after having a big shyte.

Wipes on the other hand do a much better job as they are damp and the scented ones are an extra plus. In dire situations where you haven't even got water to wash your hands after your toilet activities, anti-bacterial hand wipes come in handy.

YPP, if you're travelling by road from Lagos to Benin and you desperately need to do a number 1 at one of those roadside petrol station toilets...you'll understand the purpose of those baby wipes for your bum and anti-bacterial wipes or hand gel if there's no water supply there.

Remember, we girls don't ever sit on public toilets. Na to squat and do your business there and even if you must sit (ewwww!!!) you'll those anti-bacterial wipes to clean the seat properly, then lay some baby wipes ontop that sit before placing your laps on it.
