SWEAT, BABY SWEAT
Real talk: everybody sweats. While some may have a tendency to perspire more than others due to things like diet, exercise, genetics and medical conditions-- body odor across the board is completely normal. You’re not alone, phew! Yes, you can take a sigh of relief.
Of course, it would be fantastic if we lived in a magical land where you could get rid of your body odor forever with just a stick of deodorant. Unfortunately, that’s not the world we live in. The good thing is that there are tons of ways to reduce the smell by using amazing products like Pit Kit.
But why do our pits even get smelly in the first place? Good question. Happy you asked.
Fun fact: your underarms are home to what are known as “apocrine sweat glands.” These special little sweat glands differ from the sweat glands that you find on bigger areas of your body. These apocrine glands produce sweat that contains a mix of proteins, lipids, and steroids. Quite the party, right?
The weird part is that these glands are odorless on their own. But once they are mixed with microflora (a fancy word for bacteria), that’s when you may start to notice a bit of a stink. Microflora is the true culprit behind underarm odor. Dun dun dun.
Another fun fact: since the skin has its own microbiome that varies by region, you may suspect a bit of a difference between each of your underarms’ bacterial system. This science might explain why you randomly sweat more out of one pit than the other.
When you try out new underarm products, your pits may seem to smell a bit funkier than usual. This is just because you’re experimenting and introducing new microflora to your underarms. Fear not-- this is only temporary.
Skin has a pH balance of approximately 5.5, so depending on which products you’re trying out, you may be disrupting your pH balance and letting other bacteria thrive.
The good news is that using Pit Kit daily can help stabilize your armpit pH and rebalance microflora. Not only will you notice your body odor begins to fade away completely, you’ll also start to have smoother and brighter underarms.
