Are You Producing Strange Odor?

One thing that I don't like about summer is that you always sweat. I am very particular when it comes about maintaining good hygiene. There are times though that you meet people that smell awful. But did you know that there are four reasons why you smell bad? Here is the following reasons:

1. You stopped washing your hair to avoid dandruff- A common misconception is that dandruff is caused by a dry scalp, and that makes people wash their hair less. Dandruff happens when your hair is too oily – and that makes your hair a bacteria feeding ground and can cause odor.

2. You love stinky food- All those good-for-you spices can seep out of your pores. Things like curry and garlic. They produce sulfur containing gases that are absorbed into your blood stream and released through your lungs and pores.

3. You wanted to lose weight so you went on an all-protein diet- When you do that, you start burning your fat stores for energy. That releases ketones into your bloodstream – which can make your breath smell like a combo of overripe pineapple and nail polish.

4. You toweled off too fast after your shower- When moisture gets trapped in your crevices, like under your love handles or between your toes, no air can get in there that means bacteria and fungi can multiply, mix with your sweat, and cause odor and irritation.

I have read this wonderful article from the Prevention Magazine and I heard this from DJ Tesh.
