Menopausal Sweat & Odor Explained

Menopausal Sweat & Odor Explained

Women’s bodies are ever-changing, yet some of the most significant — and honestly, aggravating — changes occur during menopause. Between the ages of 45 and 55, menopause starts to take effect. Throughout this time you can expect to experience hormonal fluctuations which lead to hot flashes, excess sweating, and oftentimes new (read: unpleasant) body odors. 

Needless to say, menopause — and all of the shifts that come with it — often gets a bad rep. 

It doesn’t have to be awful, though! Proper education can prepare you for this era, helping you to understand why your body is changing and giving you the resources to power through (and thrive!) with confidence! 

Why Do You Smell Worse During Menopause?

Hot flashes and night sweats are two of the most common menopausal traits. When your body heats up, it in turn produces more sweat, so it makes sense that hot flashes trigger excess perspiration. Additionally, major hormonal shifts during this time affect your sweat — specifically when it comes to estrogen and testosterone. As estrogen levels drop down testosterone naturally increases, which attracts more bacteria. Combined, these two phenomena create an environment where odor-causing bacteria flourishes, resulting in funkier-smelling sweat 🫠

The Importance of High-Quality Deodorant

We know that these changes are downright annoying, but there are ways to combat the stench as well as that uncomfortable damp feeling. The most effective approach? Using a high-quality deodorant! Some formulations will only mask the odor, which helps in the short term but can actually make things more unpleasant in the long term… 

To ensure you’re completely getting rid of the funk, you’ll want to opt for a powerfully clean deodorant, like Curie’s Deodorant Sticks and Sprays! Our formulas are infused with probiotics that completely neutralize odors and rebalance the skin’s microbiome. Just a swipe or spritz keeps that stench-causing bacteria and you dry throughout the day!
