The body naturally protects itself from overheating by sweating. So, it is a normal process in cases of intense physical work or hot and humid weather when sweat particles evaporate the excess thermal energy, and the body cools. The case of excessive sweating is called hyperhidrosis.
Sweating is an important function of our body and the human body has a large number of sweat glands. Most of them are located under our armpits, and consequently we tend to be annoyed by armpit sweat since these glands are active frequently.
This sweat is enriched with fatty acids and proteins which leave their residue on clothes.
People actively use deodorants and antiperspirants when sweat starts to smell in an attempt to prevent this annoying inconvenience. Yet, sweat is good and contains chemicals that fight diseases, so you should not worry about eliminating armpit sweat altogether.
Namely, a recent study discovered that the chemicals found in sweat contain natural antibiotics that can kill dangerous germs, which again leads to the fact that you should not eliminate one of the most important body functions. Instead, you can eliminate the bad smell using natural remedies.
Avoid Deodorants Which Contain Aluminum And Use Lime!
To conclude, armpits perspire for they eliminate toxins in your body, so it is a beneficial and normal phenomenon. However, the odor that is created can be solved by the use of limes.
Lime is fantastic when it comes to body odor issues, since it has the ability to combat armpit sweat due to its acidity. The acid in the lime juice helps reduce sweat production and can work as a natural deodorant. Moreover, limes have strong antibacterial properties, and since bacteria causes the bad smell they are a useful remedy in odor reduction.
All you need to do is take a lime, one not very ripe, cut it in half, and then wipe each of the halves on each armpit.
You should not worry if the skin under the arms brightens a little after rubbing the lime, since the color will be restored soon after.
