(ORDO NEWS) — Sometimes this natural process of our body causes a lot of trouble. But, fortunately, it can be controlled.
Sweating is a normal process, but sometimes it is an inconvenience in society. However, you can make the bad smell less.
Sweating is a natural process of the body, but sometimes it can be profuse and accompanied by an unpleasant odor.
At these moments, a person may feel awkward and uncomfortable not only in the company of other people, but also alone with himself.
Before giving advice on how to get rid of the smell of sweat, let’s figure out what this biological substance is.
Sweat is a clear, salty liquid produced by our glands that cools the body. When your body temperature rises, the nervous system automatically activates the sweat glands.
Most often, armpits, feet and palms sweat. Sweat itself doesn’t smell. But when it rises to the surface of the skin and mixes with bacteria, an odor can develop.
But bacteria don’t smell. They break down certain sweat proteins into acids, and odor is a by-product of this process.

Sweat odor is affected by many factors, including hormonal levels and the food you eat. So, for example, the following products can cause an unpleasant odor of sweat
