Personal care tips for men

Everyone likes to smell fresh and good but this just doesn’t happen, you have to put in some work. Personal hygiene is very important, imagine making out with someone whose oral hygiene is wanting or haven’t showered in a long while. Well, that can be so disgusting a great turn off for anyone.

However, everybody has a particular body odours. Maintaining good hygiene helps by not compromising the natural odour produced by the body.

We all produce scents designed to attract a partner, these scents are chemical signals called pheromones. You aren’t aware that you can smell them, but they still influence whether or not you find someone attractive.

Good hygiene and your penis

You should wash your penis every day, whether you’re circumcised or uncircumcised.

If you’re uncircumcised, gently pull back your foreskin and use warm water to clean the head of your penis. You can use soap on the shaft of your penis, but it’s probably not a good idea to use soap to clean under your foreskin. It can upset the natural balance of bacteria and actually make you more likely to get fungal infections. If you do choose to wash the head of your penis with soap, use a gentle one without strong perfumes.

It is important to wash away smegma. This is a white or yellowish sticky substance made up of skin oil and shed skin cells. It’s perfectly natural, but it can build up under your foreskin and smell, irritate, and cause infection.
