An Ultimate Guide To Men’s Intimate Hygiene

During the last few years, grooming products have claimed about 46% of the Indian Markets which shows how men are slowly getting accustomed to grooming which they once levelled as, ‘Kya Ladkiyon Ki Tarah Makeup Kar Raha Hai.’ However, the community of men is still getting used to the term ‘intimate hygiene and grooming’.

Intimate Hygiene for men has always been an unexplored arena, however now with various companies coming up with interesting products which help men to understand more about it. Just by using condoms while being intimate is not what hygiene is about, there is more to this. So, let’s talk about this and a few tips that will help you groom your intimate areas.

1. Cleaning Your Shaft

If you are just cleaning your shaft from the outside and think that you are rocking your intimate hygiene then you have got the wrong idea. When you masturbate or pee, the left-overs of your pee, sperms, or seminal fluids remain inside the skinny covering of your penis which is the main reason for the bacterial attacks and foul smell. This might hinder your intimate moments with your partner as well. Due to this hindrance, your mood will be 'Mogambo Khush Nahi Hua'.

Penis Not getting cleaned regularly

While showering hold your shaft and fold back the foreskin of your penis and apply the foam of the intimate wash that you prefer with your thumb thoroughly and then rinse off with water. It is advisable not to use soap or Dettol as their PH is comparatively higher than intimate washes.

As funny as it may sound, the majority of men do not clean their butt hole properly during the shower. Cleaning it once after you are done pooping is not enough and also major problems appear during winter when temperature drops and people use tissues instead of water. The left-over faeces invite several bacteria and viruses to a grand feast and you often find your butt itchy all through the day. Bacteria will be like 'Ab Tera Kya Hoga Kaalia?'.

3. Trim it Down, Clean it up

If all you see during the shower is a dense bush of hairs, how will you know if it is being properly cleaned or not? Trim down a bit of that pubic hair so that your private areas get the freshness they deserve. Also, the pubic hairs accumulate dirt and sweat which causes itching and contributes to a foul smell. On a lighter note, even your pubic hair due to itchiness might be yelling at you 'Itna Kaise Seh Lete Ho? Humse Toh Naa Ho Paayega'.

Men Trimming his body hair

We recommend you use a full body trimmer and clean up as much as you can. Try to avoid shaving as the skin down there is pretty sensitive and you probably won’t like a cut down there. While trimming your balls, grip them properly and then trim as trimming them while they are hanging will be difficult and you may cut your loose skin. If you are too afraid of trimmers down there, you can use thin scissors too.

What major people do is after they trim, they just let it be. This is not right. After trimming wash your genitals with cold water so that the pores are all closed. Take a towel and dry your genitals. After drying apply aloe vera gel which is a brilliant moisturizer and if you have mistakenly cut your skin while trimming, aloe vera gel forms a protective layer over it and prevents it from bacterial attacks. Bacteria telling you politely 'Humse Bachna Hai Toh Aloe Vera Laga Lo'.

Also, it is not possible to always clean up your intimate areas with water and moisturize it again whenever you sweat, especially after a tiring day at work. To deal with this problem, you might use intimate wipes during the night before sleeping to give a touch of refreshment to your intimate area.

5. Swapping Towels and Underwears

Swap the towel you use at least once a week otherwise the foul smell of the towel will be your body odour. Also, all the dirt and bacteria that have accumulated on your towel will come back to your body and private parts. In cases of underwear, swap them every day. Wearing the same underwear covered in sweat and dirt is not only gross but also very much unhygienic. People near you would be wondering 'Itni Badboo Mujhe Aaj Tak Nahi Mehsoos Hui'.

Unless you follow this step, no matter how tough is your intimate care routine, your privates will always itch and emit a foul smell. Also, remember not to wear underwear just coming out of the shower. Dry it completely, and then wear; and if you sweat profusely, then try to buy cotton ones as they are good with sweat control.
