11 Little Hygiene Rules All Men Should Live By

Guys, here’s how to look and smell your best with a few simple grooming tweaks.

Reduce foot odor


Scrub your feet every day, and make sure to dry them completely (don’t forget between your toes!) as soon as you hop out of the shower. Before you slip on socks, apply antiperspirant to your feet to keep odors at bay.

Prevent a dull razor


Oxidation can dull your blades, but mineral oil will stop the process to keep them sharper longer. After shaving, soak your razor for a few minutes in a shallow dish of mineral oil, then use rubbing alcohol to clean the blades. These 10 products for men will help you look and feel more polished.

If you don’t have time for a full shower, you can still leave the house feeling clean. Add 4 tablespoons of baking soda to a sink full of water, then use a washcloth or sponge to rub yourself down with the solution.

Don’t be afraid of body grooming


If the hair on your head has started thinning, you might find that the hair on your nose, back, and ears is growing in full force. Clean up your look by trimming, plucking, or waxing any unwanted hair.
