4 Tips For Smelling Fresh Throughout The Day

23rd March 2017 | By Jasmine Clubb

Women are beautiful, alluring creatures. We are passionate, strong and radiant within our own right. We are unique, we are gifted and we are smelly. Wait, what..?

Body odour is something we all want to eradicate. Of course there are a variety of home remedies that you could trawl through to try and ease the pungent nature of your perspiration. You could try rubbing lemons and limes on your armpits (seriously, people do that), or you could try bathing in baking soda. Alternatively, you could change your diet to remove foods that are known for resulting in unpleasant odours. The biggest culprits being onions, red meats, cheeses and curries. But if you’re like me and you’re a foodie at heart, this option is not even worth considering.

Following these 4 steps will lead to confidence, freshness and, ultimately, smelling like a lady.

Step 1. It starts in the shower. Lather, rinse, relax.

Nothing beats a hot shower to start the day. Not only is it the perfect opportunity to unleash your inner pop diva but it also provides the ideal starting point for your ‘get phresh’ morning routine. Studies have shown that the majority of women universally see the shower as an escape, allowing a space to de-stress and mentally prepare for the day ahead. Besides cleansing ourselves of yesterday’s adventures, showering in the morning also reduces the risk of becoming anxious and stressed throughout the day, in turn, reducing the rate at which we sweat. 

The key to also getting the most out of your shower is a good body wash. We recommend EIR Active Body Wash, it's supercharged with antibacterial properties to cleanse and balance the skin.

Step 2. Deodorant v Antiperspirant.

What's the difference between deodorants and antiperspirants? Antiperspirants contain aluminum which is an active ingredient used to plug and/or shrink pores, temporarily reducing the amount of sweat produced. Whereas deodorants contain ingredients with antibacterial properties that are designed to reduce the number of odour-producing bacteria. So to keep smelling fresh throughout the day, try carrying a deodorant in your handbag which you can apply at will.

We at Maslow HQ fell in love with local skincare hero Rohr Remedy's Australian Wildflower Deodorant. Containing compelling antibacterial & deodorising properties this deodorant ensures you smell as clean and pure as the outdoors, all summer long.

Step 3. Fragrance.

A good fragrance is the next consideration. Traditionally a fragrance is applied in the form of a perfume, however, fragrances are now offered in the form of body lotions, shower gels, soaps and more. Layering is a popular concept whereby you utilise these multiple forms of fragrances and put them together to build your overall scent. The aim of this is that you end up smelling twice, or even thrice, as beautiful and fresh. Layering also increases the length of time your fragrance is likely to be noticeable.

Step 4. Spray beyond the skin.

Our final tip is to spray beyond the skin. Not only should you ensure your body is smelling fresh, but we recommend regularly washing clothes and spraying deodoriser onto items that you come into regular contact with: bed sheets, shoes, furniture, boyfriends, etc. EIR Air Fresh is a genius 3-in-1 product that can be used as a hand sanitiser, deodoriser, or refresher for your gym gear. Fresh EIR has a soft fragrance, so it won’t clash with your preferred scent or perfume, but will leave you looking, feeling and smelling fresh all day.

So there you have it – our tips for staying fresher for longer. Never again will you have to pack your armpits with lemons and cut cheese from your diet. Never again will you have to live in fear of your body odour and keep your arms firmly by your side when in public. Raise your hands and reach for the stars.
