Apart from getting really, really, ridiculously good looking, there are some responsibilities you need to take on when you start working out regularly. Namely, you need to make sure you keep yourself squeaky clean so that people can admire you without being dazzled by just how rank your BO is.
This doesn't mean avoiding hard work in the gym. You should kick your ass with hard work in the gym. It's just when it's time to join society, you need to remember some crucial hygiene facts.
Tip #1: Shower
You don't need a full lather every day. You can save that for two days out of the week if you want. But if you want to keep the body acne at bay, a quick rinse will do wonders for keeping the skin clear.
Tip #2: Wash Your Junk
Thought the lather doesn't need to be a full body thing every day, it is vital you always rub down your armpits, genitalia and butt crack. These are where the most odorous bacteria reside and they need to be flushed out every day if you want to smell clean.
Tip #3: Water
A daily rinse off alone won't keep the acne at bay. Drink water and drink lots of it. If your pee isn't clear, your body is dehydrated. Will this mean having to go to the bathroom once every 30 minutes? Yes. But it also means a much reduced chance of suffering back zits. Believe me. I've been there.
Tip #4: Floss
Another source of stink that you probably won't notice resides within the cracks of your teeth. Every day, you introduce bacteria into your mouth that gets stuck as food particles, eventually hardening and turning to plaque. It's these bacteria that can give you terrible breath no matter how often you brush. Make it a habit to floss at least once per day. Try it right before bed and you'll soon notice an absurd difference in your morning breath.
Tip #5: Deodorant
You need this and you need one that is an antiperspirant. Most major brands are but a lot of new age-y individuals go with options that aren't. Again, from experience, the new age-y stuff does nothing to mask the pungent aroma of armpit bacteria.
Tip #5: Cologne/Perfume
You don't need this. So long as your clothes are clean and your body well taken care of, you really won't give off much of a noticeable aroma. Plus, if you end up dousing yourself in a cheap brand, the smell will scare away others almost as quickly as the body odor. Save this stuff for special occasions.
