Take up yoga
The stress management training will help you control perspiration and body odour better. After heat, stress is probably the top cause of sweating.
Wipe a cotton wool ball soaked in surgical spirit onto your underarms during the day to cut down on odour-causing bacteria. Or try witch hazel or tea-tree oil, both of which help to keep you dry, kill bacteria and deodorise.
Prepare some greens for dinner each night. Dark-green leafy vegetables such as spinach, Swiss chard, parsley and kale are rich in chlorophyll, which has a powerful deodorising effect on the body.
