Most people do not particularly enjoy sweat, especially if there is an odour to it.
Did you know that human sweat is odourless? Any foul smell is produced by bacteria on the skin.
It isn’t the first time I’ve said this and it won’t be the last: we are mostly bugs! In fact, we have BILLIONS of bacteria living in EACH armpit. (I’m suddenly itchy, are you?)
When we sweat, bacteria on the surface of our skin breakdown proteins in the sweat and release an odour as a bi-product.
All this is completely normal, however most of us spend at least a portion of every day trying to prevent body odour—showering with pleasant smelling soaps and body washes, applying deodorants or antiperspirants regularly, and using scented lotions and perfumes to avoid any trace of stink.
