Sweat isn’t usually smelly all on its own. But if your bacteria cocktail is a bit feisty, you could become a bit of a stink-fest. So how do you train your body or mold your habits to stop sweating so much?
Once you’ve showered, be sure to towel off very thoroughly, especially in areas where you get super sweaty. The bacteria camping out on your skin won’t flourish if you keep the dampness under control.
Sweating can lead to self-consciousness about your appearance and worries about whether others are noticing your tendency to sweat. One potential way to address sweating and body odor is to modify your diet. Caffeinated beverages and foods with strong scents can increase sweating and stinkiness.
Fabrics made of natural materials, with fibers of cotton, wool and silk, are breathable, which can help you feel cooler. There also more high-tech fabrics that can help wick moisture away from your skin, too, especially while exercising.

Changing your clothes frequently can also help address sweat issues. Fresh clothes will keep you smelling sweet, particularly if you’ve been exercising. You may want to address foot odor, too, by putting deodorant powders in your shoes and swapping out socks.

To address the obvious, bathing daily and using an antiperspirant will help control and decrease sweating. Applying the latter at night and in the morning can help, and with the former, pay special attention to toweling off your feet. For more information, see Top 10 Tips for Stopping Underarm Sweating.
