Let’s face it; no-one likes to walk around smelling of bodily odors! Nor do they want to smell like they have been at work all day long! If you’re conscious about what you smell like during the day, today’s blog post is for you.
You will doubtless know there are plenty of products out there that men around the world can use to smell great and feel fresh all day long. The trouble is; how do you know if any of them are any good?
Keep reading to learn more about the secret strategies that men use to smell great! Here is what you need to know:
Have a shower in the morning
When you first wake up in the morning, the first thing you should do is have a shower. Some fellas prefer to skip that step and just bathe in the evening. But, when you’re heading off to work, you want to make sure that your body feels (and smells) fresh ready for the day’s proceedings.
If you’re a bath kind of guy, you could still have your evening baths but make sure you shower in the morning before going out.
Use a decent shower gel
As part of your washing ritual, you will no doubt use some kind of soap product. I recommend using a good quality shower gel. By that, I mean one infused with natural scents that you can still smell on your body hours after you’ve showered.
There’s no point me suggesting any products in particular, because the ones available to you will vary depending on where you live in the world. Instead, you’ll have to use some trial and error to find one that works well for you.
Buy the smallest quantity of shower gel you can buy to test the product out. That way, if you don’t like it, you won’t have spent a fortune getting it!
Use roll-on deodorant
The problem with the spray variety is that it can leave white marks or stains on your shirt and armpits. Especially if you apply too much! It’s much better to use a roll-on deodorant. They’re also more greener for the environment too.
You can also keep some in your desk drawer at work for those hot summer days!
Can’t resist the urge to smoke? Use an e-cigarette
When you use an electronic cigarette, you don’t have to worry about smelling of tobacco wherever you go.
The scent is rather off-putting for many people, and isn’t a good idea if you have kids or work with them during the day. E-cigarettes don’t use tobacco, and only emit vapor when the user exhales.
Spray some aftershave on your body
Another way to ensure that you smell fragrant when you’re at work or elsewhere during the day is to use aftershave. You might also know this as cologne or Eau de Toilette. In general, the more you spend on your favorite fragrance, the better it will be. Cheaper ones don’t tend to last as long, and so you’ll end up using more of it.
The one you use is, of course, down to personal preference. I suggest spraying some different “tester” products on cardboard to find out which one suits you the best.
Brush your teeth
Last, but not least, avoid bad breath by brushing your teeth every day! I recommend using toothpaste that has mint in it so that your breath is always clean and fresh.
Oh, and make sure you use a good quality toothbrush. Dentists recommend that you use electric ones as they do a better job at cleaning between your teeth, so I’m told.
