Smell Good at the Gym
You know what really stinks? When you're working out at the gym and notice an extremely foul odor, only to discover it's coming from you. It goes without saying that you're not going to smell completely fresh when you're breaking a sweat. However, there are steps you can take to prevent reeking like a complete pig. For starters, bathe before going to the gym. Lather up with shower gel or soap. Wash under your arms and around other areas where odors might accumulate. Use a washcloth or loofah to ensure you are scrubbing away odor-causing bacteria. Once you're out of the shower, apply a quality deodorant/antiperspirant. You want a product that's going to ward off body odor, not just prevent perspiration. Always be sure to put it on prior to going to the gym. Some women also prefer to apply a light-scented body lotion before working out. Avoid wearing lotions that have strong fragrances as they'll come out more when you sweat. The last thing you want is to offend your fellow fitness fanatics by smelling like Pepe Le Pew's girlfriend.
