When talk­ing about pre­vent­ing body odor, tal­cum pow­der is prob­a­bly not the first thing that comes to mind. In­stead, we tend to think about de­odor­ants or body sprays. Well, con­trary to pop­u­lar be­lief, tal­cum pow­der can work won­ders in this depart­ment. While it does not stop sweat­ing as well as an an­tiper­spi­rant does, it is def­i­nitely a great aid against sweat. Why? Be­cause tal­cum pow­der is re­ally ab­sorbent. It is an as­trin­gent pow­der that causes body tis­sues to squeeze and cre­ates a dry sur­face. And not only does it ab­sorb mois­ture, it also re­duces fric­tion, thus min­i­miz­ing sweat pro­duc­tion. This is es­pe­cially good for those who ex­er­cise reg­u­larly, as ap­ply­ing tal­cum pow­der to sweaty ar­eas like the thighs can pre­vent chaf­ing, while for nether re­gions—par­tic­u­larly the crotch area—it pro­vides a cool and dry­ing sen­sa­tion. Just make sure you’re not wet when you ap­ply the tal­cum pow­der. Fur­ther­more, tal­cum pow­der is also a great so­lu­tion to heal cracked heels, or even as a dry sham­poo for greasy hair. Fi­nally, the fra­grance in most tal­cum pow­ders also works won­der­fully well to mask body odor.
