Don’t let body odor take over.
Let’s be honest, you might get a little smellier during puberty, but we can fix that. Body odor (commonly referred to as B.O.) is nothing to be embarrassed about, and it’s easy to fight. Apocrine glands, primarily responsible for the reactions that cause body odor, only begin developing as your body goes through puberty.
Body odor isn’t just sweat—most body odor is caused by the reaction of bacteria breaking down the proteins apocrine sweat releases. Try washing once daily with Safeguard Body Wash or Bar Soap to fight off the bacteria that lead to body odor, keeping them away longer than other antibacterial soap.
The teenage years can be challenging for your kids, as well as for parents. Learning to talk openly about the changes they can prepare for may help make the transition into adulthood a little smoother.
