5 Steps of Preventing Body Odor in Men

5 Steps of Preventing Body Odor in Men

I have encountered many males who smell bad daily. When I asked a male friend why doesn’t he use a perfume or deo, he replied, ’ It’s masculine to smell sweaty and dirty.’ I was like 😯 β€˜No wonder, girls don’t come near you :-P’

Men smell much stronger than women because of their higher testosterone levels which increase the apocrine sweat production. Males are also less hygienic compared to women (it’s a fact don’t argue with me on that πŸ˜› ) and sometimes it’s just genetic because of excessive secretion of apocrine sweatglands.

Males can combat body odor by following simple practices:-

1) Shower Regularly

It sounds pretty lame & obvious but believe me, there are people who don’t shower regularly. Not having a daily shower just makes it easier for those bacteria to accumulate on your skin.

2) Use a Men’s Body Wash & Shampoo

Most men still stick with their traditional purane zamane ka soap. Guys, grow up! It’s the 21st century, and there are so many brands now catering to men’s beauty needs. Take advantage of those brands as they not only serve as good bath & body products but also lighter colognes since most of them have masculine scents. These are also very good for men who can’t afford high priced perfumes. Nowadays, you get 2-in-1 Shampoo and Body Wash as well which is pretty effective.

3) Use a Deodorant or Antiperspirant

Don’t forget your armpits men! They stink the most πŸ˜› Go for deos that contain aluminum and zinc as these are known to fight the monster odor causing bacteria :zombiekiller: There are many deodorants which don’t have a scent so use them just to fight the bacteria and then you can use a cologne or perfume.

Antiperspirants, on the other hand, block sweat glands, so bacteria doesn’t come in contact with your skin. If you don’t want to use any of these, you can use an antibacterial soap & then spray some cologne. Always remember bacteria = smell.

4) Avoid Certain Foods & Drinks

Reduce your consumption of spicy foods, onions & garlic as the natural odor of these foods itself travel through your blood vessels making its way through the sweat glands. Also avoid caffeine, alcohol & smoking as they lead to excessive sweating causing more body odor.

5) Use Body Powder

They work wonders in preventing that odor. Powder for men formulated to fight wetness and odor. You can use a translucent powder in places which generate most sweat so that it can absorb the moisture without making the areas look white. Many men grooming sets also come with a body powder. I recommend Sephora’s Matte for Men Man Powder.

So guys hopefully you will groom yourself better if not for your sake than just for the sake of your other half πŸ˜‰

  16. Wat a gr8 post Insiya. Y can men neva realise themselves and spare us frm the embarassment of havin 2 tell them ?:-) ?:-)
    Hence acc to me key 2 successful relationship is seperate bathrooms.Cause men’s loos stink like hell :sick: :sick: :sick:

    1. i swear..btw i guess everywhere in Asia atleast they have separate bathrooms. I had heard one high school has a unisex one otherwise I doubt there are unisex bathrooms anymore :-/

  17. Nice post insiya.. Must read for ALL men.. Smelly and otherwise!!! :yes: :yes:

    I am at loss of words after reading the above comments…. And please guys stop makeing this e-mess!!!!

  18. But I think my guy smells even better than me, and then he won’t reveal the name of his cologne…. whether he comes down from work, or waits for me for hours ( yes, I m perpetually late) , even after an entire day’s date, he smells the SAME good!! Now, I m starting to wonder if this is actually his natural smell, because it never changes, while I have to rush and reapply my cologne at some point…. I almost hate him for this!! :teeth:

    This is one hell of a post here, although, IMBB should take more interest in men, those poor creatures are completely overlooked here……..so, looking forward to more posts related to men in future……… Have a great evening!
