It sounds a little backwards but you should be applying under arm antiperspirants before you go to bed instead of in the morning before starting the day. A study for that women who do this have been shown to sweat less than those who use the products first thing in the morning. Researchers believe applying antiperspirant at night allows the aluminum chloride to have more time and block the sweat glands from releasing sweat better. If antiperspirants are not your thing (some research suggests aluminum chloride may be linked to breast cancer), you can try to kill the bacteria that causes sweat to smell by rubbing lemon juice under your arm.  Studies suggest this can change the pH of skin so that some odor-causing bacteria that prefer alkaline environments don’t survive.
