Most people get hot and sweaty in summer due to the clothes they are wearing, not necessarily the heat. Most people choose the wrong fabrics in summer. Seasonally-appropriate fabrics such as cotton, linen and seersucker are better choices than man-made fibres because they allow the skin to breathe.

 

The Pit stop

In summer it is important to get the right deordorant. L’Oreal Men Expert’s Thermic Protect Deodorant is particularly handy in summer because it kicks in whenever you get hot – but how you apply them is crucial too. For antiperspirant to work it needs to be in contact with the skin, so it’s a good idea to remove all your armpit hair. Also after taking a shower, wait for your skin to dry before applying the antiperspirant.

 

Manscaping

Bacteria that causes smell thrive by living in your hair, so manscaping will not only help you smell better but you will feel fresher too. Use a body scrub twice a week to avoid the risk of ingrown hairs.

Stay away from woody and musky scents during summer. It’s better to go for citrus based scents such as the Azzaro Chrome and the Issey Miyake’s L’eau D’issey Pour Homme.
