If you’re tanned or sunburned, you may stink more than usual. Because your body uses the mineral zinc to repair sun-damaged skin AND reduce body odor. This means a lot of us are low on zinc in the summer when our body is using more of it to save our skin. So load up on zinc-rich foods, like oysters, lobster, shrimp, crab, lean beef and dark meat chicken. Vegetarian? Try lentils, sesame seeds, and cashews. Just 30 milligrams of zinc a day can inhibit the growth of stinky bacteria on the skin. And you’ll get plenty from 2 oysters, or 3 shrimp.
