  • The hair on the back of your head (Not really)
  • Cleaning the ear properly
  • Massage your arms, hands & feet with a good lotion (plus vaseline)
  • Deodorant & Cologne is a must
  • Dandruff is a Mess
  • No bad breath
  • Smelly Feet – An Impression Killer
  • Body Hair Care

  • Learn to Look into the Mirror

And thats pretty much it. Gentlemen! Above is the list of personal hygiene tips for guys. Let’s get straight into the list and discuss each of these hygiene essentials. Shall we?

1: Ball Powder is a Must

Ball Powder is a Must

Your Balls stink and the reason is very clear.

You are wearing super tight underwear (which you should never wear) and even if that’s, not the case, still, your balls can sweat a lot.

Chances are that you’ve to spend a lot of time outside, working and doing whatever you do all day. That suffocation combined with the weather conditions can end up the sweat glands releasing sweat which then result in the smell.

Eating Junk food can also be the reason behind smelly balls.

Alright, so whatever the reason might be, First of all, I would recommend you to fix your diet not just to prevent the smell, but in general. Processed food can be addictive and can lead to many health conditions. And guess what? It can take away your sexiness and handsomeness as well.

That said, let’s talk about the solution of the smelly balls problem. Shall we?

You need to get yourself a Good quality Ball Powder. These are the powders that are specially designed, keeping in mind the crotch area. All you need to do is to wash your balls properly, apply some lotion and then throw on some ball powder.

This powder will absorb all the sweat, preventing the bad odor and that sticky feeling which may lead to spoiling your confidence.

Yeah! The first step in being confident is to feel your best. And you just can’t feel you’re best with a lot of sweat and stink down there. You need to feel super clean in order to perform and look your best!

2: Hair on the Back of your Head (Not really)

Next in the list of Personal Hygiene Tips for Guys/Men’s Hygiene Essentials is, “Hair on the back of your head”.

Your friends told me that you have a great hairstyle. Plus you have this habit of changing hairstyles often in order to improve your looks with the passage of time.

However! There is this one thing that bothers me a lot. It’s the hair on the back of your head. Nah! I am not talking about the hair that is literally there on the back of your head, but those that lay around outside the boundary.

We all get this hair when we skip our haircuts. Every guy should get his hair managed every 3 weeks. And when you exceed this time, you start getting some unwanted hair.

And one of these unwanted hair includes the hair that appears on the sides of the back of your head, mostly where the hair on the back of your head meets your neck.

Trust me, they look so bad and I am 100% sure that this hair ruins your Fresh, Neat, and Confident appearance. So what you need to do about them? It’s pretty simple. All you need to do is to:

Let’s Fix this Problem

  • Get yourself a trimmer, Hold a mirror in one hand of yours, and use the other to cut this hair down
  • Never miss your haircut days

I will always choose the second option because your barber knows how to make you look good. He will manage this hair better than you. But if you are out of town and you do not trust any other barber with your hair then you can go with the first option as well. However, make sure that you are taking your time while doing this job. After all, you don’t want to ruin your entire look by ruining the hair on the actual back of your head. Do you?

3: Cleaning the Ear Properly

Your ear needs to be clean!

Yeah, I know that you use the Q-tip to clear that ear wax often. But let me tell you another very effective way to get rid of this wax. May I?

Just Dip the Q-Tip inside some Olive Oil. Now You need to gently move the Q-tip in your Ear in the form of circles. It will not only remove all that crusted wax laying around in your ear but will also kind of nourish your ear. (In case of any kind of irritation, wash the ear immediately and stop doing this Olive Oil + Q-Tip method).

That said, have you ever thought about all those flakes, white substance, and dirt that is accumulated in your ear?

I am talking about the tracks around “Fossa Triangularis”, “Anthelix”, and “Scapha”. In non-biological words, these are the parts of your external ear that you can easily see in the mirror.

Alright, do one thing. Just dip some cotton in the water and move in throughout the external ear (not the ear canal). And then see for yourself all the yellowish material and dirt coming out. Thats exactly what I am talking about.

We focus on cleaning out the ear canal only and leave the external ear untouched. And same is the case with the back of your ear as well. Guys! I want you to clean these areas of your ear as well, on the regular basis. Because at the end of the day, you don’t want people to notice the dirt around these areas. Do you?

4: Massage your arms, hands, and feet as well

Massage your arms, hands, and feet as well

Next in the list of Personal Hygiene Tips for Guys/Men’s Hygiene Essentials to look clean & Confident is, “Massage your arms, hands, and feet as well”.

Guys! How many times do I need to tell you that it’s not just your face that needs all the care & attention?

Look, what If I told you that having clean-looking hands & feet can really set you apart? And guess what? They really do put you in a unique spot.

But what can you do to make sure that your arms, hands and feet look good?

Don’t worry brother! I’ve got you covered. I’ve done my research and after going through multiple solutions, I’ve found one that is easy to implement and the best part is, it really works!

All you need to do is to add this special massage into your nighttime routine. The Ingredients:

  • You need to have a Vaseline Petroleum Jelly
  • Some Moisturising Lotion

And thats it. After washing your feet, arms, and hands properly, you wanna put the mixture of Vaseline and the Lotion on each of the mentioned areas. And then gently massage, going into the fingers and covering the nails as well.

Massaging your arms, hands, and feet, with this mixture for about 5-6 minutes every day can do wonders for your skin. Results include excessive glow, and for sure better-looking hands, nails, arms, and feet as well.

And if you can add the Pumice stone in this equation (to clear out the dry skin from your heels) then things can get even spicier.

5: Deodorant + Cologne is a Must

Alright! So Let’s talk about Jimmy for a second. Shall we?

He is the guy who is famous for being the best smelling guy in the class. How are you going to define him, if you ever have to?

  • Best smelling Guy
  • It’s nice to be around him (No homo)
  • He smells Neat and Looks Confident as well

And thats exactly what I am talking about. Wearing Good cologne changes your personality and attraction level both at the same time. You can go from a 6/10 to 9/10 just by picking up the right fragrance for yourself.

Hey! In case you are searching for articles to help you out in choosing the right fragrance (for you). Guess what? Look no further because your boy has got you covered!

Checkout: The Only 15 Fragrance Tips a Guy Would Ever Need!

And same is the case with a Deodorant as well. I recommend all of you guys apply deodorant at the night before going to bed. This way it will have enough time to sort of soak in and be the most effective.

A man that smells nice is definitely more attractive, handsome, and neat (plus confident) as compared to the rest of the dudes out there.

6: Dandruff is a Mess

Next in the list of Personal Hygiene Tips for Guys/Men’s Hygiene Essentials to look clean & Confident is, “Dandruff is a Mess – Take care of it”.

Hey! Look at me. Do you want your shirt to have those ugly white flakes? I am sure that your answer to this question is a Big No.

Imagine taking a shower, taking care of your skincare routine, and making sure that your hair looks good too. And dressing your best as well. The Chances are that you have this extraordinary meeting and you don’t want to ruin your impression.

What if I told you that this dandruff that is falling off of your hair can ruin everything that you’ve done so far?

Yes. Trust me. Dandruff not only ruins your impression but kills your confidence as well. Below are a couple of tips that I’ve found. These will definitely help you out in getting rid of this dandruff problem.

Let’s Fix the Dandruff!

  • Get yourself a Dandruff Shampoo and apply it twice or thrice a week. Use a Good quality conditioner as well.
  • Do not forget to massage your head with Coconut Oil 2 times a week. It will nourish your Scalp and fill the health needs it.
  • Eat foods like Salmon, Peanut Butter, Eggs, etc
  • Tea Tree Oil can do the wonders for you. Just get a shampoo with tea tree oil in it.
  • Apply Hair Masks as they do really help (once a week). Combine Egg, Yogurt, and Sunflower oil. Apply this mixture to your head and let it sit there for about 25 minutes. Wash your head afterward.

I recommend you to follow this for at least 2 months and then compare the before and after. In case you are seeing the results then congratulations but if due to some reason you are unable to get this problem fixed then it’s probably the right time to consult a doctor. He will better guide you about your problem and the medications prescribed to you will for sure help you get rid of this problem of yours.

7: No Bad breath

No Bad breath

Next in the list of Personal Hygiene Tips for Guys/Men’s Hygiene Essentials to look clean & Confident is, “Heres How to Fix the Bad Breath”.

The number #1 reason you are unable to give your best given that you are super handsome & confident as well, is your bad breath. This problem of yours is messing up with your impression. And this needs to be fixed ASAP.

Following is an Easy Step-by-Step Guide to help you get rid of the problem of Stinky Breath.

  • Make sure that you are brushing your teeth twice a day (2 minutes each)
  • Do not forget to floss your teeth as well. Food particles decay, causing all the smell that is coming out from your mouth
  • Brush your tongue as well. It could be the reason behind your bad breath
  • And last but not the least, eat sugarless gum as it ensures that your mouth isn’t dry. A dry mouth equals bad breath.

I would recommend you to chew on cardamom. It kills all the smell and gives you a fresh breath which isn’t repellent at all.

8: Smelly Feet – Let’s Fix this

And How can I forget about the Smelly Feet?

OMG! Just look at yourself for a moment. I mean, you are really killing it with your looks. But I know about a thing related to you, that can kill your impression, confidence and this handsome ora of yours, in seconds!

I am talking about the smelly feet. Your brother told me about it. Look, first of all, relax. It happens to the best of us. The only problem with you is that you’ve done nothing yet to get rid of this problem. Don’t worry! Your brother has got you covered once again. Below are a few solutions that will definitely come in handy.

  • Make sure that you are wearing socks that are made from Cotton. Some wools and athletic socks are made with the material that has the ability to absorb sweat. Go for those
  • Buy shoes that are made for your feet. You don’t need to buy shoes that are too tight
  • Do not wear the same shoe every day
  • Avoid wearing shoes that are made from the plastic
  • Wash your feet with antibacterial soap and dry your Feet properly in between the toes
  • Cut your toenails weekly and do not forget to use a Foot file to remove all that hard skin where bacteria can easily start to live
  • Dry your shoes in the sun after taking them out

And thats pretty much. This is all that I’ve found after my research. I am sure that by using these tips your smelly feet problem will get solved pretty much a lot.

9: Body Hair Care

Next in the list of Personal Hygiene Tips for Guys/Men’s Hygiene Essentials to look clean & Confident is, “Body Hair Care”.

Guys! your personal hygiene care isn’t personal anymore. By taking care of these hygiene elements of yours, you somehow are affecting your external appearance as well.

Like for instance take the example of body hair. Yeah, it looks good to a certain limit but when it exceeds more than that, then you start to notice an increase in the roughness.

Some people prefer this roughness and call it natural while others (including me) consider this not-so-neat.

So what to do with your body hair?

In my opinion,

  • Chest hair should be trimmed. Remember, I am not saying that you need to shave it. Trimming it would be a better option.
  • Back Hair needs to go. Just shave it
  • The same is the case with your Pubic hair. Shave them as well
  • Underarms Hair? Needs to go!
  • I would rather not trim or shave my Arm/Leg hair. But it’s totally up to you. Trim it, shave it or leave them as it is. Up to your personal preferences.

That said, once you are done cleaning the hair, make sure to apply a good quality body wash and apply a moisturizer as well. It will make sure that your skin stays even and looks good throughout.

10: What about your Nose and Ear Hair? (Cheek Hair?)

What about your Nose and Ear Hair (Cheek Hair)

Ahh.. These are the little details that we all choose to ignore. Guess what? these are the things that have the potential to separate you from the other typical dudes out there.

Alright, so what about the Nose Hair?

Nose Hair needs to be cleaned. You don’t want to be like that one dude who has his nose hair hanging around. They make you look like a creep. So Don’t. Just don’t ignore them.

There is this special tool called a nose hair trimmer which you can get from the store nearby. This can be used to trim down the nose hair. You can also use the same tool to clean your ear hair but make sure that you are doing it in front of the mirror, so you don’t end up hurting yourself.

Let’s talk about the Cheek Hair Now. Shall we?

So Cheek hair needs to be cleaned because it can ruin the entire look of your face. Like, Imagine having a sexy look on your face but these cheek hair hanging around along with that. They add that roughness which can decrease your facial appearance.

All you need is a regular trimmer to remove this hair. And thats pretty much it. Do wash your face and moisturize your skin, after you are done taking care of the unwanted hair.

11: Learn to Look into the Mirror

Next in the list of Personal Hygiene Tips for Guys/Men’s Hygiene Essentials to look clean & Confident is, “Learn to Look into the Mirror”.

So Yes. Guys! I know that even today, looking into the mirror carefully and taking care of yourself has been limited to the girls only.

Men who take care of themselves and make sure that they are looking sleek are labeled as gay which in my opinion is a good example of, “smashing one’s opinion on someone’s personality”.

Guess what? I am talking to you, my handsome young man. I want you to not listen to anyone! All you need to do is to stay focused and keep doing what you are doing.

Do you want to look into the mirror in order to make sure that you look great today? Just do it!

Do you want to take care of yourself to make sure that you look the best? Who’s stopping you? Just go for it!

And thats exactly what I want you to understand, realize and promote as well. That said, let’s get to the actual point.

Why looking into the Mirror?

And Yes, do make sure that the mirror isn’t too foggy. You don’t want to let your problems get away just because of the unclear mirror.

See for yourself what’s wrong going on. Chances are that you have these eye boogers that for sure are damaging your looks

Maybe it is because of these dry patches, that your face isn’t a 9/10 when it for sure has the potential to cross even the mark of 10/10! (With the continuous care and by following a strict regimen).

Hey! Why is your skin lifeless? Ahh.. Have you heard about the exfoliation?

Oh, come on! You need to exfoliate 2 times a week to make sure that the old skin goes and the new one comes (Young & Fresh).

And what about those Frown lines? You are the reason behind these. Your habit of sitting and thinking about useless things for a super long time. Your stress has caused this mess.

But not anymore. This is the time to fix all these problems.

Let’s Fix all the problems

  • Learn to be happy
  • Sleep on time (7 hours of sleep is a must)
  • Drink Enough Water
  • Exfoliate your Skin
  • Learn to appreciate what you have been given by the God

And with all that being said, I would recommend you to thank God for what you’ve been given. And take care of it as well.

Following is a list of recommended articles to help you with that:


And last but not the least, Probably one of the most important ones in the list of Personal Hygiene Tips for Guys/Men’s Hygiene Essentials to look clean & Confident is, “Take care of your BACKNE”.

What is BACKNE?

“Back acne is the result of an accumulation of dead skin cells and oil [sebum] within the pores in the skin, combined with an overgrowth of a common skin bacteria, Cutibacterium acnes, which triggers an inflammatory response,” says Kara Shah, MD, a board-certified general and pediatric dermatologist with Kenwood Dermatology in Cincinnati.

source: everydayhealth.com

One of the main causes of BACKNE includes you wearing tight clothing. Maybe you are carrying this backpack a lot lately and the pressure from that backpack has been the reason for the acne on your back.

Or maybe you are wearing the same clothes for like 4-5 days straight. Chances are that your clothes are not getting washed properly.

Maybe you have taken these medications lately for whatever problem of yours, and these medications have done something with your body’s functions resulting in the BACKNE. A Lot of sweat and stress combined can also act as a trigger here.

Below are a few solutions that will help you get rid of the BACKNE:

Tips to get rid of BACKNE!

  • Use a good quality Shower gel and take a shower every day.
  • Do not forget to moisturize your back with a good quality moisturizer
  • Your diet is going to play a significant role in your recovery. Eat Fruits & Vegetables. A healthy diet and lean protein will definitely help you out a lot.
  • Do not forget to use a gentle scrub to moisturize the skin on the back
  • And wear clothes are that are not tight. Loose-fitting clothes will make sure that the air passes through and keeps your skin not-so-packed
  • Apply creams or lotions that contain Tea-Tree Oil. This can really do wonders.

And thats pretty much it that you can do at your home to cure your BACKNE. That said, if you’ve tried all of what I’ve mentioned above but still you are unable to get rid of your BACKNE then I would suggest you consult a doctor.

He will better decide what is the reason behind this problem of yours. And once the reason is identified, the problem can be treated very easily with the help of medication and some lifestyle changes.
