Keep your underarms fresh, even at the gym!There's nothing worse than realizing that weird smell in the air is coming from your armpits. If you're hot, exercising, nervous or under stress, sweat and body odor are your body's natural responses. Luckily, there are plenty of ways to combat the stink and end up smelling clean and fresh.

Sweat is mostly odorless, but when it comes into contact with bacteria on your skin, it can change when the bacteria metabolizes the proteins and fatty acids secreted with the sweat. The way it smells is influenced by many factors, such as your diet, mood, medical conditions and any drugs that you're taking. Deodorants work to kill the bacteria on your skin while antiperspirants use ingredients like aluminum to block the pores so they can't sweat.

A product like L`Occitane – Aromachologie Purifying Deodorant works to eliminate toxins and impurities along with odor. It keeps your skin dry and fresh while providing a subtle, uplifting scent that lasts all day. Powders, like Caswell-Massey – Lily of the Valley Talc, keep your skin soft and fresh as they absorb any moisture your body produces. With so many ways to combat sweat and odor, there's no reason why you can't be confident about your aroma.
