Tips for Smelling Good on the Road

When you are spending a lot of time on the road, it is very difficult to stay fresh and clean. There are many reasons for this. You may be taking a long train ride or flight. You may run out of hygiene products. You could be sweating a lot when it’s hot. Wherever you are going, smelling good is one of the most important things you should do. It isn’t easy. But there are plenty of ways to keep yourself smelling good and staying fresh. Below are some tips for smelling good on the road.

Always Have a Change of Clothes

Whether you’re going on a flight abroad or taking a day trip you should always bring a change of clothes. This is especially true for underwear and undershirts. You can also put some baking soda in your luggage to absorb smells from dirty clothing. Are you going on a hike? Bring a change of clothes. What about spending a day in the city? You should be able to switch into night clothing. Wherever you are going, you will be glad to have a change of clothes. It will help you smell good, but more importantly it will help you feel good.

Wear Deodorant

This may sound obvious, but you should wear deodorant every day. Even if you don’t plan on getting sweaty, you should be prepared should you do. You might not expect a spontaneous hike or a bike ride. You should wear deodorant to protect against smells. You will also sweat out of your armpits less if you wear deodorant. Wherever you are and whatever you are doing, be sure to bring with you a few travel deodorants with you. It’s the best way to protect against smelling even if you are sweaty.

Wear a Fragrance

Another thing you can do is wear a fragrance. Fragrances are designed to mix with your pheromones to provide a pleasant smell. Of course, it won’t help if you already smell bad but when you are going out for a night on the town wearing a fragrance will help you smell fresh. When you don’t know where to spray cologne, you should squirt once on your chest and spray some on your hands to apply to your neck. This will enable the fragrance to mix with your natural scent and help you stay smelling good in situations when you’re dancing all night or going on a date in a foreign place.

Keep Dental Hygiene in Mind

Beyond smelling bad after sweating, one of the most crucial parts of smelling good on the road is your mouth. Taking care of your dental hygiene is pivotal. People will notice and remember when you have bad breath. It isn’t always easy to remember to floss on the road, but you should. Flossing and brushing your teeth multiple times a day will help you feel fresh and keep your breath smelling good. This is especially pertinent if you are eating delicious foreign foods that are spicy or funky. Don’t forget about dental hygiene when you’re traveling!

Treat Yourself To a Hotel with a Nice Shower

When you are spending a lot of time on the road, your accommodations will vary. You might not always be staying in nice hotels, but occasionally it will really help you to book one with a nice shower. You will spend more time grooming when you have a lovely shower with hot water and a bathroom to fresh up in. If the shower isn’t great and the water is cold, you might rush to clean up. When you are feeling tired, worn down, and unkempt, book a hotel with a great shower and plenty of hot running water.

Life on the road is exciting. It’s easy to get swept up in it and forget about the basic things in life. One thing you should never forget is hygiene. Instead of leaning into filth like a lot of backpackers do, take care of yourself. You will feel better, smell better, and look better. You will be more approachable and less grumpy. No one likes feeling sweaty and gross. If you make the proper preparations, you can avoid smelling bad on the road at every step of the way. It makes traveling much more enjoyable!
