It’s been really hot this last few weeks and a lot sweating is expected. Sweating is an important function of our body, but when sweat starts to smell it becomes annoying and inconvenient.
According to studies, the chemicals found in sweat contain natural antibiotics that can kill dangerous germs, therefore, it’ll be unwise to get rid of one of the most important functions of the body, but, slathering on deodorant, which contains a list of petrochemicals and other cancer-causing paraphernalia, is probably not the safest choice for your well being.
However, you can get rid of the smell that comes with sweaty armpits with lime, yes, lime.
Believe it or not, the results it gives are just fantastic. Just cut the lime in half (not very ripe), and then wipe each of the halves on each armpit. It is possible that after rubbing lime, the skin under the arms will brighten a little, but don’t worry, the color of the skin will be restored soon after.
Lime’s ability to combat armpit sweat is due to its acidity. The acid in the lime juice helps reduce sweat production and can work as a natural deodorant. Additionally, limes have strong antibacterial properties.
I’ve tried it and it works for me, for as long as 24hours. Be careful though not to use it just after a shave and discontinue if you react negatively to it.
