There has been a stereotype of girls taking extra care of their looks and ways, while men are shown to be reckless at their personal hygiene and cleanliness.
To some extent, this is true. Guys are lazy and whiny enough to even get that stinky sock into the washing machine and clean it. They can be a sloth enough to just make-do with the perfume, on the body that hasn’t touched water for bath for 3 days.
And here, I am not rolling every one of you into this pin-pointing storm, but there are still many.

Believe me, these are not an overwhelming set of things, just simple approaches. These are easily doable. They can even help you change your outlook on things as well.
Let’s dive in, pronto!
Oral care includes both tongue and teeth
You meet someone with a wide but pale grin. This is the first impression, and you are unlikely to make an impactful move further. You might have heard that first impression is the last impression.
Nonetheless, you can save face by preventing any possibility. Brush your teeth properly, without ignoring a spot. Floss them carefully, as food can often get stuck in those crevices.
Tongue, usually ignored part in oral hygiene, determines how your words smell to someone. And definitely, you wouldn’t want it to smell of onion from the pizza you had last night. So, afford a tongue-cleaner and 2 minutes to get that white layer off the tongue.
Your hair is not to be ignored
Of course, they might not be long, and little mess or frizz won’t be noticeable but, it can seriously impair your hair growth as well as scalp.
Improper cleaning of head can give you hair loss problems, dandruff, lice and so forth. Further, if you have got Rapunzel hair, then it is a no-brainer to wash them clean.
Irrespective of the length of your scalp hair, pick a good shampoo and conditioner, and use them. You will feel handsome from inside.
Deodorant is not enough, go shower!
Getting late for class, last minute to reach the office, and you just are out of the bed like an ape, with a hurry brush, hurry dressing, hurry combing, and other hurries.
And of course, there was not a minute to take a shower. Why do deodorants exist? – “To hush up the smell from body”!
No, be 30 minutes earlier, and chivalric enough to bear the cold shower. You will feel fresh and productive throughout the day.
You don’t need to bathe every day, alternate days can do the job!
