We got used to hear that sport is a health preserver and the positive impact of physical activities on health is proven by thousands of people all across the world. That is why nowadays different sport activities become more and more popular. Along with traditional sport disciplines like running, swimming or wrestling, modern ones like crossminton, sandboarding or even underwater cycling appear and attract people from all over the world. Women start to go to a gym as often as men and do not only cardio, but also strength exercises. It is easy to observe people who are running in the morning before going to work or doing yoga in parks.
All of this confirms that more and more people choose to be active and to follow a healthy lifestyle. But it is important to remember that healthy lifestyle means much more than just physical activities. It also includes proper nutrition and balanced diet, healthy sleep and, what is very important, proper hygiene. Staying clean and fresh should be part of every person’s life.
People who practice sport, experience sweating as a natural process of physical effort. It is often accompanied by unpleasant smell in gym changing rooms, a kit bag or sports equipment. And one shouldn’t worry as it is absolutely normal thing to sweat during exercises. However, there are ways to avoid unpleasant situations. Everyone should take shower immediately after each practice or competition. Use your own bottled soap and towel and don’t share them with others, let alone other toiletries. Studies have shown that transmission of infectious diseases can occur when these items are shared with other athletes. If you will not take shower immediately after a training, unpleasant smell might be easily noticed by your environment and make you feel uncomfortable. What is more, lack of hygiene causes infections, inflammations and other health problems, which could result in serious illness. To control sweating and body odour, one should always use special antiperspirants. They should be used not only when training, but also on daily basis, because antiperspirants reduce bacteria that cause body odour and prevent the sweat from reaching skin surface. Being fresh ensures the feeling of comfort and self – confidence.
It is also necessary to remember about adequate intimate hygiene. Taking proper care of intimate areas is crucial especially for women, regardless of their age or nationality. Doctors suggest to use special intimate wash instead of soap to clean the intimate areas – wash is very gentle and protects against intimate infections and bad smell.
