Some people believe that men should not spend as much time in front of the mirror as women do. And I agree with that to some extent. But I don’t think that men should look and smell like the last surviving savage if they want to be successful.
Every successful man has to look good. The key to that “alpha male” level of attractiveness is a clean body.
A clean body is the barrier of entry to building successful careers, relationships, or communications. Without it, expensive clothes won’t make you more attractive at any age.
Imagine how it feels like when you feel young and attractive while being in your 30's or 40's or even 50's. Wouldn’t you enjoy living that quality of life?
To achieve that you’d need to take better care of your body and practice good hygiene.
Let me show you how by sharing the male hygiene tips below.
Male hygiene tips
1. Keep your hair neat
Here are some hair hygiene tips to keep you ahead:
- Wash your hair with natural products. Use natural shampoo and natural conditioners.
- Don't wash your hair every day if it's not necessary. If your hair looks fresh after one day of shampooing, try going out without it. Shampooing your hair too often may weaken it. Washing your hair 3-4 times a week should be fine for most people.
- Choose a style that compliments your face.
2. Wash your face
Wash your face one time before you go to bed at night and another time upon awakening in the morning.
During the day, wash it every time you feel it got sweaty or dirty.
The main goal is to keep your face clean and fresh.
3. Maintain a good oral hygiene
Before teeth brushing, floss to remove the stuck food between the teeth. After that, brush to remove the plaque settled on the front, in the back, in between the teeth.
Next, clean up the white coating off the surface of your tongue. Use a tongue scraper or the bristles of the toothbrush to do the job. This refreshes your breath.
Keeping the oral routine in this order, makes your mouth feel so much cleaner.
4. Shower often
Shower or takes bathes to wash the sweat and odors off the body.
If you wonder how often should you shower, the answer is that it depends on your circumstances. It depends on how physically active are you. It depends on whether you live in a warm or cold area. Or it depends on how fast your body gets smelly.
The main goal is to maintain your body clean and free of odors.
If you are man enough, give a try to the "contrast showers" or "James Bond showers". This means that, after washing your body, you alternate between warm and cold water for 10 seconds each. This is a good healthy procedure. But get slowly into the habit to not get sick. Don't rush!
5. Groom yourself
Maintain yourself well-groomed.
This extends the cleanliness of your body and improves your self-confidence.
Wear clean clothes that fit you well. Maintain a neat physical appearance. Choose clothing colors that fit the same color pallet.
6. Clip your nails
Keep your nails short and clean.
Use a nail clipper to cut them off. The best moment to do that is after taking a shower when your nails are soft and easy to cut.
7. Trim the armpit hair
Shave the armpit hair. This reduces the smell of sweat and also it looks more attractive.
8. Trim the pubic hair
Trimming your pubic hair is a personal preference.
If you live in a warm area or you are physically active during the day, the hair in the pubic area increases the temperature down there even more what promotes sweating and smelling bad.
If this is the case, keep the pubic hair short.
9. Keep your underwear clean
Change your underwear once per day or two.
If you do some athletic activity, wear tight underwear to prevent your genitals from jumping from one leg to another.
For the rest of the day and, especially, during the night, wear loose underwear made from cotton.
10. Clean the earwax
If you don't clean your ears, the earwax builds up, which is unhygienic and it looks embarrassing.
Clean the wax from the ear after showering when it melts down.
Use a towel to clean the inside part of the ear. After that, use a cotton stick to clean the wax from the top of the ear canal. Don't go too deep as this may push the ear deeper into the ear canal and block it. If that happens, you'll need the help of a doctor to unblock the ear canal.
Use the above male hygiene tips on a daily or weekly and the cleanliness of your body will be always top-notch. You'll feel cleaner, safer, and more attractive.
