how to keep yourself smelling fresh

The way you smell not only contributes to your aesthetics but also your self-esteem. When you smell great, you will feel more confident and able to put yourself out there. You will feel cleaner, fresher, and ready to face the day’s potential challenges.

Thankfully, there are lots of things you can do to keep yourself smelling great, including maintaining great personal hygiene and using beauty products to enhance your natural odour. 

Below are some great ways to stay fresh all day.

Practice good personal hygiene

Your personal hygiene makes a significant difference in your body odour and overall scent. To stay smelling clean and delicious, you’ll need to maintain an effective personal hygiene routine.

Washing daily, whether in the shower or bath, is key for keeping your body clean and removing excess sweat and dirt. You don’t necessarily need to wash your hair every day, as allowing your natural oils to soak your hair is beneficial for its growth and health. However, washing your hair every other day or a few times a week will help with keeping it smelling clean and looking shiny.

Make sure to your soap when washing your body and pay attention to all of the creases and crevices that are easy to miss. It’s in these unnoticeable areas that bacteria and dirt like to build-up!

Get yourself some fresh-smelling perfume

Perfume is a great way to keep yourself smelling great. You can choose your favourite perfumes to customise your personal scent, whether you love classic vanilla, floral aromas, or traditional fresh linen spray.

Perfume is easily transportable, so you can keep a bottle in your work bag or take it with you to social events. You can then apply a spray or two when you’re feeling sweaty or want to freshen yourself up during the day or night.

Wash Your Clothes After Every Use

We’re all conscious of our energy and water bills nowadays, and as tempting as it might be to avoid doing the laundry for as long as possible, doing so might not be great for your personal hygiene. If you’re concerned about your energy and water expenses but want to stay fresh and clean, consider using an ‘eco’ setting on your washing machine.

Ideally, you should wash your underwear, socks, and shirts after every use, as these clothing items tend to get sweaty and dirty very quickly. You can get away with washing trousers, jackets, and accessories less regularly and may only need to wash them when they’re visibly dirty or smelly.

Add fresh-smelling laundry detergent and fabric softener to your wash loads to ensure your clothes come out smelling great. Doing so will also improve the scent in your home.

If you have sensitive skin, make sure to use appropriate products when washing your laundry. Non-bio versions of detergents and fabric softeners are often the best choices if you have particularly sensitive skin or are allergic to traditional laundry products.
