Body odour can be embarrassing and make you lose your confidence. Body odour can not only be unpleasant to people around but also for the person experiencing it. The body releases sweat when it needs to cool down the body temperature. Body odour can be a problem at any time of the year, either burning hot summer or cold winters, not just the climate, the body also produces sweat under stress.
The unpleasant smell doesn’t come from the sweat itself but the bacteria that down the sweat. Even though there are millions of products for body odour available in the market, not all can be trusted to do the job or be safe without harmful chemicals. Here is a natural remedy for reducing body odour that is reliable and cost-effective.
- Potassium Alum Powder – Two Tablespoons
- Take two tablespoons of potassium alum(padigaram) powder.
- Apply in problem area after taking bath (It may burn a bit but that’s okay).
- Rinse out with cold water.
For better results, follow this method every day. Using this method regularly would reduce body odour.
Why it Works:
Alums low degree of antiperspirant action means that your skin’s pores are not blocked completely, yet its high degree of antibacterial action means that it acts as an effective deodorant and only partial antiperspirant.
Alum deodorant doesn’t congest the sweat glands and allows you to sweat naturally without getting that ‘sweaty’ odour.
