Hygiene is something everyone needs to master in their everyday life. I think it is more than just showering, brushing your teeth and putting on deodorant.
When you stay fresh it gives you a sharper look and helps you feel good all day.
One thing with us men is that we always find ourselves worrying about sweat, odor, our breath, skin, hair and even nails.
Here are a few helpful tips to help you keep up with your hygiene from head to toes:
Start off with the right shampoo and conditioner.
Once you know your hair type you should find a well-known brand of shampoo and conditioner and match it with your hair type.
There are so many shampoos and conditioners out there for all kinds of hair so that won’t be a problem for you.
If you have curly, straight, wavy, thick and thin hair there is a shampoo for you. Depending on your hair type you can wash your hair every day, keep it clean and adding a conditioner will keep it remain soft and shiny.
You are going to be talking to a lot of people throughout your day. Keeping your mouth fresh is a major plus in staying fresh.
Brushing your teeth is an essential part of your daily routine in life, and your teeth should be brushed as soon as you wake up in the morning before you have breakfast. After you have your breakfast or morning coffee brush them again and floss (if you have time) before you leave for work.
Your teeth should be flossed at least once a day to keep your teeth and gums fresh, little flossing can lead to many gum diseases. For those out there running on a tight schedule, there are little tools out there that make brushing and flossing something you can do on the go.
This is a little on the go toothbrush that gives you fresh breath if you’re in a hurry.
The bottom end is pointy and can be used to get things out from in between your teeth if needed. This is a quick alternative to actually brushing your teeth, that you can carry around since it’s tiny and convenient.
Mouthwash is also something overlooked by many people but can be super useful after brushing your teeth. You don’t have to do it after every time you brush but once or twice (day and night) should be good. Mouthwash has many benefits, which include, freshens breath, prevents plaque build-up and fights against tooth decay and gingivitis.
When brushing make sure you brush your tongue as far as you can, build up on tongues gives you bad breath and looks pretty nasty.
Make sure to shower everyday.
Some say not to shower everyday but just imagine going through a whole day moving around, working, being outside and just laying in your clean sheets.
Get a body soap or body wash that comes with microbeads to better exfoliate the dirt off your skin.
Microbeads help go deeper into your skin and get you clean.
Make sure that your bar soap or body wash is moisturizing. Exfoliating causes the skin to get a little dry so bar soap and body wash that come with moisturizer help hydrate the skin after getting it all cleaned up.
Dry skin looks flaky so anything to give it some moisture helps. Scrub those armpits because leftover deodorant can cause foul odor as well. Make sure to wash everything thoroughly, from head to toe.
After your shower, moisturize, it doesn’t have to be every time but every now and then moisturize after your shower because that’s when your pores are the most open and exposed and will absorb the moisture. Moisturizing your skin makes it soft to the touch. Drying in between your toes prevents smelly feet.
Your body is not the only thing that needs to be washed. To prevent acne and oil buildup of the skin wash your face at least twice a day. If you tend to have oily skin make sure to keep your skin clean.
Oil and dirt clog the pores which cause acne to start popping up.
Use a face wash that exfoliates well, these tend to come with microbeads as well.
This will help clean out your pores and keep your face fresh.
After this, don’t forget to moisturize! Everyone has this mentality where moisturizer will cause acne or breakouts, that’s a myth! Moisturizing helps replenish the skin of some of the oils you removed from it while washing. If you don’t moisturize the skin will work extra hard on producing the oils it needs, therefore it will become oilier.
Don’t forget to use face lotion, hand or body lotion won’t do as well on your face.
Cologne is a tricky thing to touch upon because all men’s cologne tends to have a strong scent. Whichever cologne you pick to wear, go easy on it. A little goes a long way, two to three sprays will keep you smelling nice throughout the day. Not too strong but just the right amount.
Nails should be kept short, finger and toenails.
Toenails especially cause long toenails to cause foot odor. Manicures and pedicures are not something just for women, men can do them too. Every now and then a mani-pedi can be good to keep the hands and feet looking polished. Pedicures help keep your heels smooth from callus, giving you soft, good looking feet.
Manicures help reduce the amount of dead skin around your fingers and give your nails a better shape. Try not to bite the side of your fingers and fingernails.
Hand Sanitizer is a tiny, useful thing to keep on you at all times. We touch things all day long and we don’t know where things have been. They could be infested with germs or just straight up dirty so if you don’t have a bathroom nearby where you could wash your hands, just put on a little hand sanitizer.
Hygiene is more than just a shower and clean teeth. It is important part of our lives that everyone should take more time doing. Take these tips to make sure you stay fresh all day long no matter the weather.
