3 Top Hygiene Practices For Men

Man washing his face with water in the bathroom.

As the saying goes…”The way to a girl's heart is by keeping good personal hygiene.” Just kidding. We all know that’s not a real saying, but it really should be. Because trust us when we say personal hygiene and a solid grooming routine is one big green flag to all the girls out there. If you think your routine needs a little updating or you just don’t know where to begin, let us help you out. Here's the basic steps to staying clean and fresh all day long, and keeping the ladies headed your way. 


1. Make time in your schedule 

It sounds a little obvious, but if you don’t carve out an exact time to perform your hygiene and grooming routine both day and night it probably won’t happen, or at least not consistently. Make self-care a priority. Whether that’s waking up a little earlier before work, or shutting off the video games a little sooner before bed. Good hygiene comes with consistency, and we really hope you're performing it every day. For your grooming routine, it changes from man to man. Some prefer to shave everyday or every other day and so on. So first decide that, then make sure you add that to your schedule as well. 


2. More is NOT Better 

In the world of grooming, hygiene, and skincare more is not always better, especially if you're crunched for time. If you use the right products, you’ll end up with less steps. Find shortcuts and products that maybe combine two steps. Take the time to explore what works best for you now, and your future self will thank you. And if you need some inspiration on where to start for your skincare routine specifically, might we recommend Insanely Clean? Only two steps, quick, simple, and made for men. 


3. Look, feel, and smell handsome 

Now in case some guys out there need a little more of specific direction in terms of what steps they should take in their hygiene routine, this list is for you: 

  1. Brush Teeth 
  2. Grooming Routine (to each their own with this step) 
  3. Cleanser 
  4. Moisturizer 
  5. Deodorant
  6. Cologne 

This is your starting point, and at no means should you stop here. But before getting into the deep world of men’s hygiene and grooming, we recommend starting with the basics. If you smell your best, and feel your best, you will also look your best. So start with these steps and you'll be on your way to greeting every girl you meet with a giant green flag.
