I shower every day, brush my teeth once a day, and wash my hair every 2 days.
I also tend to put lotion on if I notice any dry areas on my skin. My face around my mouth and nose tend to get dry along with parts of my forearm, the area between my thumb and index, as well as my heels. So in these areas I tend to put lotion but I don't have to do it too often. I usually do it if it's dry to the point where it's obvious (white, flaky).

I shave every day pretty much and use the facial scrubber + cooling gel which I got from P&G from the freebies thread in VOT.

Don't trim pits or pubes but I am considering trimming my pits just for the "clean" look.

I think over the years I've developed certain habits for maintaining a clean and fresh look while minimizing any possibility of odours.

I put on anti-perspirant every day.
I never wear the same shirt two days in a row but if I didn't sweat in them then I may wear the same one again on the third or 4th day after, though in the summer I wouldn't do this for t-shirts.

I have 3 pairs of shoes and always alternate. I guess that's why my shoes never smell.

For socks I wear ankle low-cut ones, usually the ones with the thicker soles and heels, and I try to keep white ones white so if I know I'm going to be walking around in an area with no carpet I will wear grey/black ones instead if possible. The dirtiest my white socks have gotten is the typical grayish tinge that occurs after repeated washings.

Change my underwear every day.

I don't know why but I am sort of a stickler for (own) cleanliness, though I certainly don't bother about other people's hygiene as long as it doesn't affect me or physically bother me (like if there's an odour).

My gf is a clean girl and while I wouldn't mind if she doesn't shave her pits (she's from China but she shaves her areas ) it doesn't hurt that she cares about how she presents herself.
Lol you think you go over and above the average because you brush your teeth once a day and change your underwear every day?? I would hope that is the absolute minimum that the average person would do... personally I brush twice a day and floss every day and would brush a third time if I could find a way to do it at the office without being a huge dork...

You're right about the underwear part but I'm referring to everything else I do as a whole. I can't comment on gong 'over and above the average' as I didn't really say that but like I said I tend to try to aim for the clean look.

For anyone wanting to trim your pubes etc, buy the Phillips Male Body Groom PRO. It's much better than the regular Body Groom. Somehow it's engineered to cut hair in a way that it doesn't really itch at all when it starts growing back. Amazing. Fortunately, I don't have much body hair to begin with.

i ask cause i was out with a girl today and she says i was the first guy shes ever seen who shaves/trims armpits...wich kinda blew me away seeing as how i know dozens of guys who do this....so it got me thinking...

so, how many of you guys do grooming on yourselves?
i liek to think i take care of my appearance, my gf shapes my eyebrows every now and then but i just take care of the middle ahah, clean shaven most of the time, i dont trip my armpits thats weird and my pubes i only trim when im single lol and im lazy to style my hair, didnt like spending 20mins for just my hair so i get it cut short

I just pluck in between my eyebrows so I don't get a unibrow goin. I also use this facial wash since I've heard so much about it but tbh I don't notice a difference. After showing I will moisturise my face because it always gets mad flaky afterwards. Right now the one I'm using is a sunscreen as well.

Can anyone recommend a facial moisturiser without SPF that is water based and good for sensitive skin? Every one I've tried my forehead always gets oily as hell.

forgot about this thread

anyways, the girl who currently waxes my chest and back is moving away next month, so ive got a month to find a new person to do it. anyone know anyone? prefferably someone who can do it from their house, and in the burnaby/portmoody/vancouver area? i ask if it can be done from their house because im usually not free to have it done till around 8-9pm...so its just easier and more conveniant.

PS

for anyone whos interested, as some of you have gf's, tons of women sign up for this thing called a luxebox, wich is every 4 months you get a box mailed to your house of high end samples of cosmetic shit and etc..

well, the guys version is now out, its called Home page its 100$ a year, i got my first box in september, gotta say...the shit it came with was pretty cool....id go out and buy the stuff now if i could find it in stores...id rather not buy it from their website though cause you so know they mark that shit up lol
