Traveling is an experience that we share with others. And just like anything else that includes a lot of people, many things can ruin this experience.
You may get stuck behind a long TSA security line, have people yelling at you for no reason at the airport or get stuck with a seatmate who’s stressing you out with his fear of flying.
However, what if you were the one who’s causing trouble to other people? Believe me; sometimes without being aware of it, we end up making other people uncomfortable.
One of the most salient cases is when we have a bad body odor. This is something that we don’t pay much attention to, since usually when we smell bad, we are not able to pick the smell ourselves; but others, unfortunately, can.
The following list contains the reasons why you end up smelling bad when traveling.
You expend a lot of effort at the airport: walking and sometimes running to get your flight ticket or checking your bags, carrying your luggage -especially when they are heavy or you have lots of them- also waiting in long lines can get you exhausted.
Very often, you forget to drink water when you are at the airport due to all the things you need to do before getting on your seat, and this lack of water in your body is the main reason that leads to dehydration. What’s worse, when you get dehydrated you also get bad breath.
Therefore, make sure to always carry a water bottle in your hand so that you will not forget about drinking water. Also, avoid drinking coffee and other caffeinated drinks, coffee doesn’t substitute for water, on the contrary, it will make you even dehydrated and cause bad breath.
