Our expert says:
Nelly, I hear your distress, and I am pretty certain that you do not smell unpleasant or in any way other people notice or bother about.
All people tend to smell differently from other people, and some people smells we like, others we dont - it varies greatly. If one washes regularly, even without using deodorants or perfumes, most people tend not to have any noticeable smell ( unless one gets far closer than anybody ought to do at work ! )
Absolutely EVERYTHING one hears or reads about "detox" is cynical rubbish - NONE of the products or processes advetised or sold "detox" anyone in any way, and unless one has been specifically poisoned by a particular poison, and needs treatment monitored by a specialist doctor, nobody alive ever needs to be "detoxed" - he normal, usual body produces no toxins needing to be removed, and one's body manages just fine without interference.
So the problem here, and I do hear how distressed you are, is almost certain to be related to a lack of confidence and self-esteem on your side, and some inaccurate but convincing assumptions, both that the others in the office in some way find you offensive, and that this must in some way be related to smelling.
Once you start convincing yourself that you're smelly, you will feel less confident, of course, and more likely to notice anything the others do which you can convince yourself supports your theory. If friends and family don't notice anything unpleasant about you and the way you smell, you don't smell. There are many reasons why other people might fiddle with or rub their faces. If they really found you were reeking as badly as you imagine, believe me, they would have told you long before now.
So consider seeing a counsellor to work on your self-confidence, which will help anyway, and the counsellor can also confirm that you have no secretly nasty odour such as you believe might be the case.
