Sweat Odours (and How Not to Smell!)
There are those of us who sweat when it’s hot or when we are nervous. Are we dealing with sweat odours properly?
There are more people who are sensitive to other people’s body odour than we think, even if we don’t smell it. Of course, there will be some who are concerned about other’s body odour, even if we don’t mind it!
We shall be introducing a number of products today which you can use to prevent sweat odours, including some of which we would like to carry with us while we’re out.
The link between sweat and smell
Sweat come from the sweat glands in our bodies, which activate upon heat or nervousness. It is odourless at first when the body produces it. However, sweat odours and skin trouble can occur if we leave it alone.
Sweat odour develops
Sweat odours occurs when bacteria present in fats and proteins of the skin are broken down by amino acid.
Skin with sweat attracts dirt more easily than clean skin, and this consequently leads to an environment where bacteria can breed easily. Furthermore, accumulated sweat makes the skin more susceptible to external stimulation. This could lead to skin rash or heat rash.
Choosing products to deal with products
We should keep out skins clean by wiping away sweat before sweat odours develop or our skin gets overstimulated.
On inspection, we can divide products that deal with sweat into different types of usage and experience. Therefore, we can choose accordingly to our needs and preferences.
Products for sweat – Body Sheet Types
Sheet types can be used for either when we have sweated, or when our skin are starting to feel sticky. It may just be a simple sheet, but there are various ways to use the products, depending on the product. Furthermore, they have additional benefits:
1) Fragrance type, that provides a good scent; and
2) Deodorant type, that prevents smells from building up.
It’s more refreshing to use than towels and handkerchieves, while leaving the skin feeling smooth with a good fragrance.

These body sheets are large and thick, so a piece is all you need to cleanly wipe any stickiness off. There are two types available. You can either choose the “Powder In Type” for a smooth feel on the skin, or the “Ice Type” for a refreshing use. I think that the Happy Deo Body Sheet with Disney design has its own type of attraction ♪
Products for sweat – Gel-, Cream-type
Gel and cream types can be used by applying an appropriate amount on the skin directly, especially when we are concerned about any sweat or odours.
They have a demerit of needing to wipe your hands after applying. However, they stay on the skin and is resistant to sweat, therefore they last quite long for effectiveness. Benefits also include the ability to resist sweat and prevent odours, making them doubly suitable for application before sweating begins.

Seabreeze is popular regardless of gender because of the cute packaging, and the variety of scents we can choose from.
This year Seabreeze released a new gel type (this comes on top of the classic water type ★). The gel texture doesn’t drip easily, so it is easier to apply than the water type. You will feel the cool freshness upon applying it, which you will lose any sticky sensation that was on your skin!
