1.) The concept of good hygiene is cultural, not biological.
2.). Our bodies have several self-cleaning mechanisms, one of which is the skin (with assistance from hair and hair follicles).
3.) The combination of frequent washing and synthetic products can disrupt the skin’s self-cleaning process.
4.) You might never guess that the people around you—the “normal” ones you don’t smell—don’t necessarily have the highly regimented daily personal care routine that is socially endorsed and touted as the only valid option.
5.) Worry and paranoia over the state of hygiene can cause stress, and stress can elicit foul body odor (an evolutionary throwback).
