There is one universal truth when it comes to dating that all men should be familiar with: a woman tends to really like when you smell good. Of course, this isn’t always as easy as it sounds. You might work at a job that requires manual labor outside, work construction, or work in a warehouse, and it can be tough to “freshen” up when it comes time for your social obligations.
However, there are ways that you can smell good every day, no matter what the situation. The right scent can help attract the right potential partners and might send the right message in your next professional interview, as well. Here are some tips for you to smell as amazing as possible, as often as possible.
Changing Your Diet Up
Many people don’t realize that your diet has a lot to do with the way you smell. We all might have body odor, but there are certain foods that can actually make it so that your friend and family comment about the way that you smell.
You should already be eating fruits and vegetables, but you might want to eat more after realizing that these foods can actually improve your smell. You might want to eat more protein, as well, as a general rule. If you drink more water, there’s also a good chance that this will help. After all, if you have a healthy metabolism, you are probably giving off better-smelling body oils.
Keeping Clothes Clean
There are younger professionals that might not have time to always do laundry, and might resort to the “sniff test” when it comes to their clothes. This might be a huge mistake, as it doesn’t take into account your body odor, as well. You should always be making sure that your clothes are as clean as possible.
This also means keeping your car clean. For example, if you smoke in your car, the odor will make its way to your clothes. Similarly, if your car is not in order and has plenty of odors of its own; these odors might migrate to your clothes. It’s simple: keep clean clothes, keep a clean car, and there’s a good chance that you will smell better everywhere that you go.
Choose Your Scents
We are constantly using products that change the way that we smell, but we might not be thinking about them as much as we should. What bar soap or body wash are you using? What does it smell like? If you are using cheap soap or body wash, does it smell “cheap”? Would you consider investing in better soap in order to smell better?
In addition, you should be making sure that you are showering every day. Your scent will clearly not improve if you are not even washing your body every day. You should choose your shampoos and conditioners carefully, because there are many people that might smell these scents when they work with you professionally, or see you personally.
Of course, there are other ways to go. There are men that choose to improve their skin’s scent through moisturizers and lotions, so that is always an additional option. Some young professionals also choose to exfoliate fairly often to improve their body odor, as well, but others might consider that an unnecessary expense.
Ultimately, you should find out a budget for smelling better, and realize that some small changes in terms of deodorant and cologne choice might change the way that you feel. No matter what you do – make sure that you are wearing the cleanest clothes that you can, and cleaning your body properly every day.
