As unbelievable as it might sound, apparently sweat can actually help you treat infections.
Namely, sweat contains a compound known as Dermcidin, which effectively fight dangerous bacteria before they enter the body. The bad smell is caused by bacteria and fungi that have managed to get into the body, and not the sweat itself.
Hence, the use of antiperspirants clogs the sweat ducts with aluminum and toxins, contributing to the growth of bacteria, and their entrance into the bloodstream.
You can prevent this by avoiding antiperspirants and commercial deodorants, and thus limit the exposure to the harmful toxins they contain, which can lead to multiple health issues.
Yet, this does not mean that you should stop taking proper hygiene but just choose natural and safe alternatives.
Lime is one of the best things you can use to fight body odor, in a safe and natural way. It actually prevents the odor, rather than just masking it.
All you need to do is to cut a freshly-ripened lime in half and rub a half into the armpit. Then, leave the armpits to dry and then put on your shirt.
That’s all! Now, you can be sure that your armpits will remain dry and smelling fresh for the next few hours.
