10 Ways to Smell Fresh, Even If You Haven’t Bathed for a Few Days
Showering is important to help us stay clean and protected. However, there are moments when we just don’t have time to shower, for example, while travelling. When this happens, it’s still good to maintain some habits to prevent us from smelling bad.
Bright Side discovered 10 ways to help you smell fresh when you’re too busy to shower.
1. Use body oils
It’s better to use a perfumed body oil than perfume that you spray on in this case, because the smell of body oil lasts longer on your skin. Also, you can always choose a more subtle aroma, with a more natural smell, and rub it into your skin throughout the day.
2. Use baby wipes
Baby wipes are a good option to make you feel clean to some extent, since they can eliminate the bacteria responsible for bad smells.
3. Use extra layers of deodorant
Using deodorant helps you kill the smell of your sweat. Extra layers can maximize its effect, as well as kill bacteria.
4. Change your underwear
You sweat a lot around your intimate parts and they are often kept warm. Changing your underwear can minimize the bad odor that comes from sweating.
5. Change your socks
Your feet are one of the parts of your body that sweat the most, causing a very unpleasant smell. Changing socks regularly will minimize the bad odor. It’s also a good idea to add talcum powder to your shoes.
6. Avoid food with onion, garlic, and spices
We are what we eat and these foods can intensify your bad smell. In this case, it’s better to eat vegetables and fruits instead.
7. Avoid tight clothes
Tight clothes can warm several parts of your body, causing them to sweat and result in a bad smell. Loose clothes will help you stay fresher.
8. Use dry shampoo
Dry shampoo will revitalize your hair and stop it from looking greasy. It will give your hair a fresher look and smell, and can help you add more volume to your hair.
9. Wear headbands and wraps
In case you run out of dry shampoo, you can always use thick headbands and headwraps to keep your hair in place. Choosing a suitable hairstyle will cover the dirt and bad smell of your hair.
10. Hydrate your skin
Hydrating yourself can also help you smell fresher. You should drink plenty of water, as well as use good smelling body creams to moisturize your skin.
