How to Keep Your Body Smelling Fresh in Singapore’s Humid Weather

Ever had that moment where you wonder why you smell like salty fish?
Especially when you sweat like “hanbaobao”(sweaty baby)
Sweat itself doesn’t have a smell. Body odour is actually the fault of the bacteria that lives in sweaty areas of your body.

The most sensitive areas where people can smell easily are the armpits. They are also one of the reasons why some people don’t like to take public transport during peak hours. When you sweat, the bacteria breaks down certain proteins in the sweat into acids. So it’s not the bacteria that stink. It’s the by-product of the bacteria down the sweat. Are you still worried that nobody will like you if they found out you have a bad body odour? We are going to save you! Let’s follow Tropika Club to dive deeply with you on how to keep your body smelling fresh at all time.

Showering twice a day is a perfect solution for those who sweat excessively. It not only cools you during the summer or in the hot humid Singapore weather but also gets rid of some of the bacteria on your skin. Wash thoroughly ,especially the area where you tend to sweat, helps with body odour.

Use antibacterial soap or deodorant soap to combat body odour due to sweating. Antibacterial soap helps to counter the bacteria of the body, which further helps to lessen the foul smell. Try to avoid use antiperspirant as it will clog sweat glands.

Wear Loose and Breathable Clothing

Avoid wearing clothes which are made by nylon or synthetic quality as they retain sweat easily. Instead choose to wear loose, comfortable cotton clothes or breathable fabrics that help evaporate sweat. The most comfortable summer clothes will combine breathable materials with a loose, airy cut. Cotton is one the best fabrics for hot weather. Not only is it cheap and hugely available, but it is also great for the heat. Cotton is soft, lightweight, breathable, and soaks up sweat, allowing heat to escape the body and for you to stay cool. It comes in countless styles and colours, meaning you can find a cotton garment to fit pretty much any need. There are also a variety of cotton blends that have different qualities. Cotton gets pretty wrinkled, but a cotton polyester blend will keep you from having to iron.

Watch Your Diet

Eating the right food plays a very important role in helping you to get rid of bad body odour. Take note of red meats, oily fried food, spicy and pungent foods. These foods do not actually make your sweat any smellier. However, the scents of pungent foods can permeate through your skin which turns into body odour after a short while. Alternatively, you can try to eat more healthy food like leafy vegetables, fresh fruits, etc.

Linen is another top choice for a breathable fabric to wear in hot weather conditions. It is also very light and is loosely woven which allows heat to escape from the body.
