Some Hygiene Tips For You To Follow When You Step Out For A Run

Smelling good is something that can add a boost to your exercise

Sweating is an inevitable part of running which will result in bad body odor. Whether you are a distance runner or a casual jogger, smelling good is something that can add a boost to your exercise. After all, no one wants to worry about body odour after the high that accompanies a great feeling run.

Also, in case you thought you could only sweat in summer that is not true. With the onset of winter come the heavy layers of clothing which result in even more body odour.

While sweating is your body’s natural way of regulating temperature, it is the body odour that accompanies it which can be embarrassing when interacting with fellow runners. It is bacteria that are present on sweaty skin that reacts with sweat and causes body odour.

Daniel Vaz, Marathon Coach for NIVEA Men, has some hygiene tips for you to follow when you step out for a run:

Take a pre-run warm shower. It not only warms up the muscles, but it will also clean your skin off sweat. Applying soap between your toes will ensure that those areas that are potential sites for fungal infections such as Athlete’s foot are cleansed.

Always prefer to take a warm water bath before going out for running. Pixabay

Wear clean running apparel that is preferably made of fabric that wicks away sweat, breathes, and keeps you dry.

The maximum odor comes out from the underarms when bacteria mixes with the sweat. Use a deodorant or preferably a Roll-On directly on underarm skin, so as to control body odour right at its source.

Use face wash on your face and neck post-run and follow that up with splashing an alcohol-based sanitizer (preferably carried in your belt bag) on your hands, armpits, and neck.

Instead of looking for strong fragrance deodorants, look out for deodorants with long-lasting body odor control. What I personally recommend is, using deodorants or roll-ons that contain specially formulated Silver-Ions Technology that would effectively reduce odour-causing bacteria up to 99 percent. It’s your best bet against odour, especially during long runs. (IANS)
