While it could be said that men don’t have a strict self-care routine compared to women, it doesn’t mean it is not important. Maintaining your body and keeping it healthy and strong doesn’t always have to do with exercise and a good diet. Your day-to-day actions can really affect your body and outward appearance as well. To ensure you are giving off the right sense of professionalism or cleanliness that you want to be known for, keeping up with your personal hygiene could be the key.
Personal hygiene doesn’t just mean bathing either. There is more that goes into that men can do to keep themselves put together and keep their bodies healthy. In the end, while personal hygiene can affect your looks, it can also affect the health of your body and mind even more. It could be beneficial to get into a routine and practice hygienic tips daily.
Washing Your Face
A lot of time this is done in the shower with the same soap that you use to clean the rest of your body. While this does technically clean your face, you may want to look into something a bit more specific to face wash as it can help keep your skin from drying out or being too oily. Once you have that wash, you can wash your face two times a day. When you shower and before bed can be good times.
If you feel as if your face is a little dull and you aren’t glowing like you want to be, you could test out some exfoliators and moisturizers. The exfoliant will help get all the dead skin cells off and the moisturizer will help keep your skin dewy and healing.
Washing your face doesn’t need to take more than just a few minutes. With those few minutes, you could see a huge difference in your skin and face.
Shaving Your Body
Whether you just shave your face or you shave everywhere, it can be important to do it right so you are not leaving your skin bumpy and red. When you shave, you will want to make sure your skin is warmed up and wet. You may even want to exfoliate the area beforehand so you can get all the dead skin cells off so you are not shaving more than you have to or creating red bumps afterward.
After that, you can of course shave with shaving cream or a lather and when you are done, a nice aftershave or moisturizer could be appropriate. Every couple of weeks, make sure to switch out your blades. This will keep them sharp and help you from hurting yourself.
Stoping Body Odor
By showering, using deodorant, or using cologne you can fight against being the smelly one in your friend group. We all have our own smell and after a few days, or even after a night of sleep, that odor can become very obvious to the ones around us. It can be unwanted and repellent to some.
By keeping up with your cleanliness, you can in turn be more professional, be invited to more events, and have more friends to make. It can make a huge difference in your physical and mental health as you may feel more inclined to go out and you won’t feel as sluggish.
Staying clean can also help in the dating world and help raise testosterone levels as you are able to go out and have your fun. Being clean on the outside can help you stay healthy on the inside.
A lot of these could be things you already know to do, but cleanliness is nothing to laugh about or forget. Keeping up your personal hygiene can truly help your well-being and keep yourself healthy.
