The human body and every part of it have their own offensive and in some unfortunate cases repulsive smell. Body Odour Smells if left unattended can turn into a horrible stench. Many types of odour are common enough for their identities to be pinpointed to certain regions of the body. Take the feet or under the arms these are both host to distinguishing smells.
You will find there are 3 sorts of secretor glands on the skin – one which we are most familiar with is the sweat gland where the odour is of an acrid smell. This turns into a putrid type smell if the sweat is left to build up – build up is brought about by the sweat getting trapped which then prevents evaporation. The other type of gland is the Apocrine Glands which are rich in proteins and fats and because of these it encourages the presence of bacteria. Then we have the Sebaceous Glands which eject a greasy type lubricant named sebum. Sebum contains fatty acids, cholesterol, proteins and waxes – all of these once again are like a magnet for bacteria. Bacterial infections can disperse embarrassing Body Odour Smells.
Unfortunately bacteria and Body Odour Smells is here to stay no matter how much you cleanse wash or rinse the offending areas but the good news is, you can prevent and lessen offending smells as such to reduce any embarrassing situations you may find your self in.
Perspiration can be calmed down to a minimum with different materials.
Try to avoid sweat instigators on the skin like synthetic fabrics. Cotton is a material that helps lessen sweat outbursts. You can speak with your doctor if you are experiencing strong pungent smells from certain parts of the body that you are not comfortable with. The doctor will be able to advise you on what is the best action to take in prescribing medicated cleansers. When treating bad breath – once again talk with a figure in the medical profession or your dentist.
No one is exempt from suffering from sweat but once again there are ways of keeping it in control with certain products scientifically designed to treat perspiration. Available over chemist counters you can purchase spray or roll on antiperspirants or deodorants.
Antiperspirants include aluminium salts which play an important role in reducing sweat deposits by helping to close the sweat ducts. Combating sweat with the aid of deodorant is hurried along with the inclusion of the antiseptic in the deodorant. Remember this only helps with the smelly secretion and not to eliminate the sweating
Deodorants contain an antiseptic to combat bacteria and they also reduce odour but do not cut down the sweating. Expect to find most deodorants to be scented giving a false identity to working miracles when in fact it is just overpowering a body odour smell for a few hours.
