You may notice the deodorants you have always used may not be performing anymore. Keep in mind that your heightened olfactory senses make you think you smell worse than what other people may be experiencing, but it has probably made you hesitant to be around other people. However, small changes to your lifestyle can do wonders. One thing you can do is try to find the best deodorant for your body chemistry. As mentioned in previous blog posts, apple cider vinegar is another great way to combat body odor naturally.
Personally, I am always paranoid that I smell bad and what I do is add powder (natural ones like cornstarch instead of talc) and a few drops of essential oils. I brush it over my deodorant with a loose powder brush to absorb excess sweat. It also helps when I brush the powder on my breastbone also called the sternum where I seem to sweat a great deal.
