Excessive body odor no deodorant can handle!

Posted , 6 users are following.

I've never had an issue with body odor. My usual routine, get up, shower, dress, put on deodorant and makeup and good to go. Now I have to put on an extra layer of deodorant before leaving the house, then in the car, stopped at a light I will add a spray of another type of deodorant and then I keep that on hand and will add another spray at some point or two during my day, then when I change into my pajamas I will add another layer of stick deodorant. Even with all this I will still smell like b.o. on occasion. The hot flashes and night sweats throughout the day obviously contribute to my problem, but I wonder if others have a similar issue and if they've found a solution.

    my solution is to work from home and look and smell like a hot mess every day 😦 yes, the hot flashes def make my pits smell horrible like never before. my sister just uses a lavender essential oil mixture due to the fact that deodorant is supposed to be had for you. maybe try that?

    I went thru that about 4 years ago. No deodorant would work. Then all of a sudden deodorant started working again. Now I just have to wear a little and I'm good to go.

    Hi Annette. I had exactly the same issue. It was really horrible. I live in a tropical country and I sweat a lot! I d have 4 showers a day but still couldn t battle the smell.... until I discovered the perfect deodorant. Lemon

    Yes. Lemon. Squeeze a bit on your hand and rub it on your armpits. The smell literally disappeared. I ve been using it for a couple of years. No odor at all. Zero. Nada.
