Everyone worries about their body odor at some point or another. Who hasn't done the subtle armpit check? Fortunately, there are steps you can take to become more hygienic and eliminate body odor for good.

Wash your body. If you find that you are a bit smelly, hop in the shower if you have the time. Body odor is created by bacteria that cause you to smell, so rinsing your body (and the part that smells worst in particular) can help to get rid of the smell quickly.   However, it’s important to use soap or an antibacterial detergent when you wash yourself, rather than just rinsing with water.

Apply an over-the-counter antiperspirant. Antiperspirants form a block using certain chemicals (like aluminum) against sweating and perspiration, which helps to eliminate body odor. Unlike a deodorant, antiperspirants actually eliminate the perspiration, while deodorant simply masks the smell.
 Many of these antiperspirants last all day, but you may need to reapply, especially if you've been doing something like exercising. 

Use a deodorant to cover up body odor quickly.

Take showers regularly. As mentioned above, taking a shower can help to get rid of body odor quickly. Making sure to shower each day can help to keep you feeling cleaning and fresh while you do your daily activities. When you shower, focus on your underarms and your feet, as those are two of the biggest body odor areas.

Make sure to use an exfoliant a couple of times a week. This can help to wash away grime, dead skin, and bacteria, all of which can play a part in creating body odor. You can purchase exfoliants at your local pharmacy, or you can make your own natural exfoliants.

Shave your underarms regularly. This can apply to both men and women, though women more commonly shave their armpits. Getting rid of the hair in your armpits can help to reduce the amount of body odor you have because hair absorbs odors easily; if you have less hair, there will be less chance that the body odor is absorbed.

Wear breathable fabrics. There are certain synthetic materials that don't breathe very well unless they've been specifically designed for that purpose (like polyester blends). If you're really worried about body odor wear fabrics like cotton, wool, or silk as they soak up moisture and have better breathe-ability, which means you will most likely sweat less and create less body odor.

Wash your clothes regularly. As mentioned above, body odor can seep into your clothing. If you sweat heavily in a shirt and allow the shirt to dry without washing it, there is a very good chance that that shirt will smell bad the next day. Try to wash your clothes every time you sweat in them to keep them, and yourself, smelling fresh.

Take a wheat grass or chlorophyll supplement. Chlorophyll supplements are thought to act as natural deodorizers, which can help to keep you from getting smelly throughout the day. Add a chlorophyll supplement to your normal vitamin regimen.

Try a detox. Cleansing your body, especially if your body odor problem comes from your gut or the food you've been eating, may help to reduce body odor and set you on the path towards smelling clean and fresh. 

And lastly; Stay hydrated.
