Something smells bad at Gold’s Gym and it’s not the towel hamper: it’s the gym’s policy. Shawn Morales, an actor and model, was recently ejected from an L.A.-area Gold’s Gym because of his apparently unbearably offensive body odor. He tweeted: “2day I was told by an employee at @GoldsGym that they are going to REVOKE my membership because “10 members have complained about my BO”…?” More
Topic: body odor
It’s summertime, the temps are hot and the humidity is soaring, so you know what that means: There’s a very good chance that you smell. Women don’t just perspire, we sweat. And we have body odor, too. So aside from slathering on the deodorants and antiperspirants this summer (which we still have health debates over), there are some simple and natural things you can do to smell better. Take a look (your friends may just thank you): More
I once worked for a woman who had such horrible body odor, it made me gag every time she called me into her office. As much as I tried to linger at the door, she always wanted me to come in and sit down. I would reluctantly oblige, but not before taking a deep breath and trying to only breathe through my mouth for fear that my nose hairs would singe. Anyone who’s ever been around someone like that knows how truly unpleasant it can be. I mean, do they not know how bad they smell? Not always according to a new study, but for those who do, there could be a solution (thank God). More

B.O. can be the pits. But that doesn’t stop some of us from being wary about the chemicals and possible health risks associated with antiperspirants and deodorants.
Slathering our armpits with these gels and roll-ons means putting aluminum chlorohdrate or aluminum zirconium into our bodies. And while they may keep you dry and stink-free, the problem with these ingredients is that the health consequences are still widely unknown. In addition to possible irritants and allergens, health experts have warned us about the possible connection to breast cancer.

During the wickedly humid of summer, going without a really good deodorant or antiperspirant can be uncomfortable. Not to mention smelly and embarrassing. Real Simple tested more than 60 sticks to find which were the best. We’ve taken their results … More
