Surprise! Welcome To Postpartum Body Odor (And Tips For Knocking It Out)

by Sarah Thomas

Bringing a new life into the world is truly a remarkable experience, but let's be real, postpartum recovery can be a real stinker (pun intended!).

But fear not, my fellow new moms, I have some tips to help you combat that pesky postpartum body odor.

Make Time For Showers

First things first, let's talk about the importance of regular showers. Yes, I know how hard it can be to find the time and energy to shower when you're taking care of a newborn around the clock, but trust me, it's worth it.

Not only will it help you feel refreshed and rejuvenated, but it'll also help to wash away any sweat and bacteria that may be lingering on your skin.

You can get one step ahead of odor by lathering up with Lume Acidified Body Wash. Not only does it smell fantastic, but it is clinically proven to control odor for 24 hours. Our body wash is truly skin safe to use anywhere on your body, at any point during your postpartum journey.

Choose A Good Deodorant

Next up, deodorant. A good deodorant can be a lifesaver when it comes to controlling body odor. Just make sure to choose a product that you're comfortable using if you are breastfeeding.

Lume Whole Body Deodorant was invented by an OB/GYN whose goal was to provide a solution for ALL body odor for women in all stages of their life. Lume Whole Body Deodorant is formulated with skin safe ingredients, so you can use it anywhere you want to control odor, and know that it is also safe to use if you are nursing.

Dress For Success

Let’s make one thing clear: getting overheated is common - it goes hand in hand with postpartum. Those hormones took a plunge as soon as you delivered your baby and that fluctuation can create some heat, so breathable clothing is a must have.

I know you might be tempted to rock that cute, but super tight, postpartum dress, but you'll be much more comfortable in clothing made from breathable materials like cotton and cotton blends, linen, or bamboo.

Drink Lots of Water

Staying hydrated is also key, especially if you choose to breastfeed. It seemed like every time I sat down to nurse my babies, I was instantly parched and had to have a full water bottle placed within arm’s distance.

You lose water when you nurse, and more water when you sweat - both of which you will be doing a lot. Not only will drinking water replenish what your body is losing, but it will also keep your skin healthy and glowing.

Buy Yourself A Little More Time

Need a touch up? Lume Acidified Deodorant Wipes to the rescue. Maybe you don’t have time for a full shower today, but you can touch up with a Lume wipe and stretch that odor free interval between showers.

These are no ordinary baby wipes (no shade on ordinary baby wipes which are a godsend for cleaning up a baby’s bottom); our deodorant wipes are clinically proven to control odor for 24 hours because they are powered by Mandelic Acid - like our deodorant.

Don’t Forget To Give Yourself Some Love

Rest assured, you will feel normal again, our bodies have a wonderful ability to adapt, adjust, and heal. Give yourself some love today, during your pregnancy you nurtured an entirely new human being within your body - you have done amazing, miraculous, and wonderful things!

So there you have it, folks. Some simple tips to help you combat postpartum body odor. Just remember, you're not alone in this stinky situation, and with a little bit of effort, you can get back to feeling fresh and confident again.
