MANY of us will be thrilled at the weather heating up, but for some, the warm weather also brings some unwanted issues.

The one thing many of us dread when the warm weather arrives – the sweat.

There’s nothing worse than putting on your best clothes for a day out and after ten minutes of being in the sun, noticing that you’ve got sweat patches.

Not only is it inconvenient, but it can be pretty smelly too.

If this sounds all too familiar to you, don’t worry, you’re not alone, we know the struggle.

But it doesn’t have to be like this.

You’ve been showering all wrong… and probably not staying in long enough

It turns out that many of us are making common mistakes when washing our armpits and as a result, it’s causing us to sweat and smell.

So if you make a few small changes to your cleaning routine, not only will you banish the sweat, but you’ll avoid the smelly smells too. 

Aside from finding a deodorant that helps you feeling fresh throughout the day, you can simply switch up your shower game and you’ll be feeling as fresh as a daisy in no time. 

Dr. Geeta Yadav, certified dermatologist and found of FACET Dermatology stressed that in order to reduce sweating and banish nasty smells, it’s important you concentrate on cleansing the root of your armpit hairs.

The dermatologist highlights that hair is prone to trapping bacteria, and told ScaryMommy: “you should concentrate on cleansing at the root to ensure you're targeting the area where bacteria thrives best”.

To do so, you should spend about 30 seconds working cleanser into each armpit.

Yadav also recommends switching up your body wash, as she advised: "I'd recommend using a body wash that features a chemical exfoliant like glycolic, lactic, or mandelic acid.

"These ingredients will remove the dead skin cells on the surface that bacteria like to feed on and sweep those microbes down the drain.

“You should not use these types of products after shaving as they could cause irritation — reserve them for your initial cleanse, then use another product for shaving."

She concluded: "Using naturally antimicrobial ingredients will absolutely help stave off B.O.-causing bacteria, but not all are ideal to use directly on skin if not diluted as they can be highly irritating.
