A Few Ways To Stay Fresh When Working Out

Do you smell a little funkier after a hard work out in the gym? Are noticing a different scent after you’ve put in a few miles on the treadmill or even after a hike with yourself or friends? We all have had that moment where we questioned, is it me? Or is it the person next to me?

Well, there is a solution to this problem! If you didn’t know moisture-wicking fabrics are great for staying drier while you sweat because synthetic fibers tend to trap odor-causing bacteria that leave your sports bras and tees causing more funk to appear in overdrive. To reduce that feeling and smell here a few remedies (that work) to staying fresher while you burn off the fat!

  1. Athlea’s Unstinkable Collection or Lululemon’s Sliverescent Collection which both feature silver infused threads that help reduce odor-causing bacteria. 

 

  1. Molly’s Suds All Sport Laundry Wash is a detergent formulated for athletic wear (nontoxic) to fight odors while preserving SPF and water repellency. 

Last tip? Try sprinkling baby powder on sweaty spots after you work out—it’ll absorb some of the moisture.
