Controlling that teengage body odor

Filed under:

If you have a 10 year-old that is about to start maturing physically, you may notice that along with that comes...body odor. Kids that aren't even teenagers (by description) yet may start seeking out colognes and perfumes to mask that bodacious smell. Sorry if that word dates my thinking, but you have to start somewhere.

What can your budding teen do to keep that odor under control and out of the noses of others?. Try these tips:
  • Always, always shower daily with soap and water.
  • Don't forget to wear clean clothes and underwear every day, and change socks frequently. If you've been sweating, change into clean, dry clothes. For those of you playing sports, this is a MUST
  • Wear all-cotton t-shirts, underwear and socks, which absorb sweat better. Ditch silk and polyester if possible (for now)
  • Use deodorant, but unless you have to, I'd advise against anti-perspirant. Sweat was meant to leave the body, not stay in!
