How can I control body odor naturally?

Dr. Mehmet Oz, MD
Cardiology (Cardiovascular Disease)
On it’s own, sweat doesn’t smell bad, but once it hits the air and is exposed to bacteria, it begins to break down and emit odor. Apple cider (or white) vinegar is said to lower the pH level of the skin, creating an environment where bacteria cannot thrive. Splash this vinegar under your arms when you get out of the shower.
