Working out is always a good idea. It keeps you healthy, puts your mind at ease and gives you the boost you need to go out and seize the day.
The combination of sweat, endorphins and a generous dose of Vitamin D might seem like it’s all you need to get the most out of your workout – but alas, that combination might result in an unpleasant release of body odour that might not be the best boost for those around you.
Here are some tips that you should follow to keep your body odour in check before, during and after a hardcore workout sesh:
Shower before you workout
BO is often caused by built-up bacteria, so the first course of action will be to eliminate them.
Removing the remnants of the day before will ensure that you’re not starting your workout with already-present bacteria on your skin – and that it doesn’t pile on to the sweat you produced during your workout.
Use a gentle, pH-balanced body wash to cleanse your skin of excess oils before you smash that workout!
Wear breathable workout attire
While wearing form-fitted clothes are often a great choice from a fitness perspective, they trap bacteria from sweat a lot easier and in turn, produce bad odour a lot quicker.
It is a good idea to invest in sportswear that is loose and breezy to ensure proper ventilation and minimize unwanted bacteria build-up.
Look out for attire that’s made out of cotton, tencel, spandex or polypropylene as those are the best materials to workout in. Another outfit-related tip is to make sure your workout shoes are properly aired out post-workout. Putting them in the sunlight is a good way to kill bacteria and keep your shoes smell-free.
Apply an anti-perspirant
Working out with friends but don’t want them to faint when you lift your arms up? Anti-perspirants are your best bet.
Anti-perspirants work better than deodorants because they not only keep your odour in check but keep your sweat in control as well. Opt for one that provides long-lasting protection such as the new Adidas UEFA Champions Edition 48H Anti-Perspirant Deodorant Spray.
The new Adidas UEFA Champions Edition line provides an immediate cooling sensation with a focus-enabling fresh scent to keep your workout stink-free. It’s also formulated with 0% alcohol to keep skin irritations at bay.
Shower after you workout
This one is a no-brainer – to get rid of all the grime from your gritty workout, it’s imperative to take a good shower. Your grooming kit should consist of a shower gel that not only does the basics of cleansing your body, but hydrates it as well to replenish the water loss from your skin.
The Adidas UEFA Champions Edition 2-in-1 Body and Hair Shower Gel is a great option as it helps you to cool off and recover after a workout without stripping your skin of moisture. The product is also dermatologically tested and suitable for active skin.
Spritz a scent
After getting a good wash and smelling fine, it’s important to keep yourself smelling good for as long as you can. It’s a good idea to apply deodorant after shower to keep your underarms fresh.
The Adidas UEFA Champions Edition 48H Deodorant Body Spray is formulated with a fresh aromatic masculine scent to keep unwanted odour at bay. To take your freshness to the next level, apply a couple of spritzes of quality perfume such as the all-new Adidas UEFA Champions Edition Intense Eau de Parfum. 2X more concentrated than regular Eau de Toilette with a signature uplifting fragrance of warm vanilla, smoked patchouli and intense moss leaves, it is sure to elevate your scent game.
Your social game matters as much as your performance on the pitch. Following the tips above will leave you feeling confident enough to keep your game – without worrying too much if your teammates are about to drop dead because of your body odour.
All it takes is a bit of effort on your part, and a whole lot of help from the Adidas UEFA Champions Edition line of fragrance and body care products to keep you feeling your best before, during and after your workouts.
