National Enquirer: Gwyneth has rancid B.O.

[quote]GWYNETH PALTROW may be the “World’s Most Beautiful Woman,” but she sure doesn’t smell like it! The Oscar winner had terrible body odor at New York’s Met Ball on May 6, an eyewitness told The ENQUIRER – but no one at the swanky red-carpet event had the guts to tell her. Poor Gwyneth looked picture-perfect, but it must have been the hot lights that caused her to be a little strong on the nose,” said a source, who got a little too close to the blonde beauty. “It was pretty pungent, and I don’t think she had a clue. I saw at least two people wave their hands in front of their noses after passing her.”

The article goes on to say GP doesn't trust antiperspirants because they contain aluminum (or, as she probably would say, "aluminium").

Exactly. And considering the "met ball" is the domain of hungry anorexic slags and catty, bitchy fags the vindictiveness is par for the course.

I'll never stop wearing antiperspirant and/or deodorant, because, guess what- it works. And I'm even more glad other people use it.

Until now, and except for the amusing reactions to her that I read here, I've always been indifferent to Paltrow, but not anymore-she really does think her shit doesn't stink.

There are many people who believe the aluminum in antiperspirants is unhealthy and potentially dangerous, especially because it's applied so close to the lymph nodes.

Deodorant, especially natural deodorants, are not viewed as being potentially dangerous.

I use alum and I have for years. Works great for me. YMMV but there are some great choices on the market now.

Baking soda mixed with water to make a paste, right under the arms. Used it for years with great results. Simple, inexpensive, and totally natural. Probably won't stop excessive sweating, but it kills all odors.

But you've got an unsightly pudding in your armpits, r31.

by Anonymousreply 3205/23/2013

I use Right Guard deodorant. The basic gel kind. I don't get particularly sweaty and this stuff works very well. No aluminum. I kind of think blocking up your sweat glands is unhealthy, but if the alternative is going around with huge pit stains, then I guess for some people it is worth the risk.

by Anonymousreply 3305/23/2013

No I don't r32. You don't use a ton of it and glump it on under there - I use barely a teaspoon and mix it with water so that its very thin (almost watery) and it dries easily and nearly clear.

Try it - if you have huge sweating issues it might not be enough to assist but for the average person it's great. Its supposed to be alkalizing too, which is healthy.

Of course it's not true, R68. It's a childish made-up attack. In every photo I've seen of Paltrow since she and Pitt ended, her hair has been clean and shiny and her skin looks great. No way her hygiene is bad; with long straight blond hair and a fair complexion, it would be obvious.

I think we all remember the Pitt days when they were into heroin chic with their dirty stringy hair.

by Anonymousreply 6905/23/2013

r69, it's not a matter of clean, shiny hair. It's a matter of being in a hot room w/o having worn deodorant. Many of my students (particularly the international ones) look spectacular and smell to high heaven.

by Anonymousreply 7005/23/2013

R70, part of that is due to diet. Frankly, I'm surprised any of your fair blond students would smell like that.

When your hygiene is good, even if you get hot and perspire it's not going to be the kind of odor the Enquirer described.

I'm a very fair, blue eyed blonde and am just like everybody else when it comes to perspiration. I have never heard skin color or hair color related to perspiration before. It's nuts. Also, I thought Batali and that REM guy were the item. I can't remember his name now. He's the famous one. I can see his little bald head - looks like a soulful Niles Crane - what's his name???

I know people are blaming vindictive Met workers, but I always wondered about her to begin with.

All you have to do is take one look at Chris Martin and you just know the both of them reek. Chris looks dirty, disheveled and stinky, so it would stand to reason that they are similar in their hygenic habits.

It would also make sense as to why people were avoiding her at the party. And if you read the article, it wasn't mean spirited. It actually made some excuses for her, like the room was hot, etc.

by Anonymousreply 7505/23/2013

[quote]I have never heard skin color or hair color related to perspiration before.

Even though you admit to being a blond, try to keep up, R73. The point about long straight blond hair was all about hygiene and showering, not perspiration. If you don't keep long straight blond hair clean (which means showering / shampooing), it shows real fast. On a purely visual basis, other hair types and colors can get by without shampooing a little longer.

As I see it, there's some hypocrisy about Gwyneth and her "healthy habits." First of all, does she still smoke? Yes, Gwyneth was and may still be a smoker. Nicotine. She also tokes a joint now and then. Marijuana.

She also drinks alcohol. Vodka. And wine. And sometimes high end imported beers. nd Soda. Yes. She drinks soda. She is not vegan. So she eats red meat. Probably the finest grass fed beef,but still.

And she definitely drinks coffee. High end specially brewed coffee, but all these things taken together contribute to bad breath and body odor.

So yo can't do things by halves. she is going to stop wearing deodorant, then she will have to change all her habits. or she will be stanky.

The other thing is, maybe that dress was stinky. Brand new fabric, couture, etc. sometimes there is definitely an odor to them. I think someone at the Met Gala was unnecessarily brutal to leak that. With all her nonsense, I like Gwyneth.

See? I knew it was fabric related as much as it was her. And I'm not so sure it was her. she wouldn't have to have BO. All she'd have to do is sweat, and trigger the chemicals in the fabric, especially in a hot, crowded situation.

Have none of you ever been to a summer wedding in a church or a house with no air conditioning? Ugh. Fabric and fabric sizing chemicals can be very offensive.

I think the entire National Enquirer expose is humiliating and terribly mean spirited. If you were in her position you'd feel horrible. Gwyneth needs to fire the stylist and really raise hell with the people at Valentino who dressed her. They are the ones who look like amateurs. She's a victim.

i'm a redhead - pale skin & freckles - and i sweat quite a bit - no problem with heat exchange!

but - my skin reacts badly to a lot of the chemicals in various deodorants - and even those stupid 'natural crystal' things - that apparently contain more aluminum than mass produced commercial deodorants. I end up with bad dermatitis - it isn't pretty!

I also hate the stink on a lot of the deodorants & anti perspirants on the market - cheap and nasty - and really strong! I don't wanna smell like that.

Used to use biotherm's deo stick - but then it bacme hard to get 'cos there was some chemical innit that wasn't approved of by the american FDA - and the roll-on just wasn't as good. Started using the arm & hammer baking soda stick available from drugstores in the united states when visiting (i'm in australia) and it was great - but you can't get em here...

eventually went back to some research i'd read about years ago in britain (where they know a thing or two about BO!). supposedly they found that if you gently wash under each armpit with soap and a facecloth for a minute each day for a week - then cut back to thirty seconds each after that - it evacuates the sweat glands and keeps 'em free of stale sweat an' BO.

Providing I do it gently (skin in my pits is sensentive and if i scub too hard it ends up chafed and sore) and with a good soap - ph balanced like sebamed - it seems to work fine. doesn't stop me from sweating that much - esp on humid summer days1 - but doesn't smell bad at all & i don't reek of chemicals or end up with dermatitis. only ever daub on deodorant now if it's expecially hot and i'm dressed up for a business event or something...

recommend the method - but obviously there'd be no profit in it for any industry much - so it isn't gonna attract any marketing or advertising bucks to promote it :(

Did you see the dress she wore to the event? It was a knit with long sleeves and the only open part was a small area at each shoulder. It would have been stiflingly hot and, unless it was a natural fiber, it would have gotten very stinky. My guess is that BO is not typical for her. If it were, she would know it by now and have a solution for it.
