Best ways to improve male hygiene 

Gentlemen, let’s face it – sometimes personal hygiene can take a backseat in our busy lives. However, staying fresh and clean doesn’t have to be a Herculean task. All it takes is a bit of effort and a few little things done consistently.

Enhancing your male hygiene and self-care routine can have significant impacts on your life. From feeling and looking better to being happier in yourself, improving your hygiene has a lot to offer.

Here’s how you can look after yourself every day.


Regular showering

The foundation of good hygiene starts with regular showers. Daily washes help eliminate sweat, bacteria and odours that can accumulate throughout the day. Use a mild soap and pay special attention to areas prone to bacterial growth, such as the underarms, groin and feet.

Grooming practices

Facial and body hair can trap bacteria and cause unpleasant odours if not properly maintained. Regular grooming, including shaving or trimming facial hair, and keeping body hair in check, can significantly contribute to improved hygiene. Invest in quality grooming tools and products to keep yourself looking polished and clean.

Oral care

Fresh breath and a healthy smile are personal hygiene essentials. Brush your teeth at least twice a day, use a water or dental flosser regularly and consider using mouthwash to combat bacteria and prevent bad breath. Regular dental check-ups are also crucial for maintaining optimal oral health.

Deodorant and antiperspirant

Using deodorant or antiperspirant is a simple yet effective way to combat body odour. Make sure you choose sprays or roll-ons that work for your skin because some can be irritating. Apply them after showering, paying close attention to areas prone to sweating.

Clean clothing

Wearing clean clothes is a fundamental aspect of good hygiene. Change your underwear and socks daily, and don’t forget to wash them all regularly. Avoid wearing damp or dirty clothes, as they can contribute to bacterial growth and unpleasant odours.

Foot care

Feet are often overlooked in hygiene routines, but they need attention. Wash your feet thoroughly, especially between the toes, and keep your toenails trimmed. Choose moisture-wicking socks and breathable shoes to prevent fungal infections and nasty odours.

Hand hygiene

Washing your hands is crucial to prevent the spread of gems to other parts of your body and other people. This should be done before meals and every time after using the restroom – yes, even if you just had wee, lads! Carrying a small bottle of hand sanitiser for situations where soap and water aren’t available is always a good idea.
