  1. The word “antiperspirant” alone is scary!!
    People, keep your armpits shaven, and you will be fine. The hairs in the armpits are responsible for smelly perspiration. In order for the body to perspire freely, without the smell, shave!! Also, a little Ammen’s medicated powder works wonders – or even a dusting of bicarbonate of soda.

    • This doesn’t work for everyone. Some people’s pores are more open than others, hence creating more sweat. People can resort to natural organic deodorants if they can afford
