Part 1 of 4: Maintaining Hygiene

  1. 1
    Wash your entire body. Pay special attention to the area behind your ears, the back of your neck and sweaty spots, such as your armpits and your inner thighs.

    Scrub your body with soap and a washcloth or loofah sponge. If you have sensitive skin, avoid soaps with heavy perfumes or antibacterial ingredients.
    • If you're a female, gently scrub the area under your breasts; this area tends to get sweaty and smelly. Also, wash your vaginal area thoroughly.
    • Scrub your anus. If you have any fecal residue around your anus, it can make you smell bad.

    Wash your hair regularly. This will help it to stay looking good. Massage your shampoo and conditioner into your scalp, and rinse it off with clean water.

    Clean your feet so that they don't become smelly. Be sure to scrub between your toes. When you're done with your shower, dry your feet thoroughly with a towel.[1]

Part 2 of 4: Keeping Your Clothes and Shoes Smelling Fresh

    Use a good laundry detergent. Your detergent doesn't have to be expensive, and it doesn't have to be loaded with strong fragrances. It does need to get rid of hidden odors within your clothes.
  2. Smell Good All Day Long Step 5 Version 2.jpg
    Change your underpants often. Always change into clean underwear after a shower.
    • If you're smelling not so good "down there," then change your underwear at lunch or after you get home from school or work.
    • If you're a female and you're menstruating, change your underwear often and also change your pad or tampon every few hours to keep yourself smelling fresh.

    Avoid wearing your clothes for 2 or more days in a row. The odor from dirty clothes will keep you from smelling good.

    Keep your shoes smelling clean.
    • Never put dirty feet into clean shoes. The biggest key to keeping shoes smelling fresh is to always clean your feet and wear clean socks.
    • Alternate your shoes on different days. Wear one pair one day and another pair the next day to give your other shoes time to air out.
    • Take your shoes off as soon as you get home. Doing this gives your shoes a chance to dry and prevents bacteria from growing inside moist leather or fabric.

Part 3 of 4: Ensuring Good Smelling Breath

  1. Smell Good All Day Long Step 8.jpg
    Brush your teeth twice a day. In the morning and at night before you go to bed are good times to brush your teeth. To keep your mouth even cleaner and fresher, brush your teeth after every meal. Also, thoroughly brush your tongue to remove any film or residual odors that can cause your breath to stink.
  2. Smell Good All Day Long Step 9.jpg
    Use dental floss. Dental floss cleans the areas between your teeth that can harbor bits of food and bacteria that cause hidden odors.[2]
  3. Smell Good All Day Long Step 10.jpg
    Gargle mouthwash that doesn't contain alcohol. Alcohol will get rid of bad breath in the short term but will ultimately make it worse.
  4. Smell Good All Day Long Step 11.jpg
    Use a mint, or a spray of breath freshener if your breath becomes smelly.

Part 4 of 4: Using Products That Make Your Body Smell Good

  1. Smell Good All Day Long Step 12.jpg
    Apply deodorant and antiperspirant. If you have hyperhidrosis (excessive armpit sweating)[3], use a deodorant like Driclor or Certain Dry..
  2. Smell Good All Day Long Step 13.jpg
    Put talcum powder into your shoes. You can also use special inner soles in your shoes that can be taken out and washed when they become smelly.
  3. Smell Good All Day Long Step 14.jpg
    Spray on your favorite scent. Splash your cologne all over yourself. If it's perfume, spray it on the pulse points on your neck, behind your ears and on your wrists. You can also spray perfume on your clothes. Just make sure that you don't overdo it so that you're the only thing that people can smell in a room.
  4. Smell Good All Day Long Step 15.jpg
    Avoid feminine deodorant spray. These sprays can irritate your vagina and upset your vagina's self-cleaning mechanisms.
  5. Smell Good All Day Long Step 16.jpg
    Keep a beauty kit with you at all times. These must-haves will save you from sweat and odor when you're on the go:
    • Wet wipes – use this to wipe up any grease or odor from your body
    • Powder – apply on hair (blondes) or body to feel refreshed and absorb sweat
    • Cologne – baby colognes works best to cover up any smell
    • Mints – have no time for brushing? Suck on some mints to avoid bad breath
    • Hairbrush and hair serum – for that bad hair day to go away
    • Oil blotting paper – to wipe off any shine from your face
    • Hair deodorizer - spray it on your hair to cover up the hideous smell of sweat
    • Extra shirt - in case you really get smelly
    • Deodorant - make sure it is small so you can freshen you anywhere
    • Extra feminine products - keep a pad or tampon discreetly stored in your kit
  6. 6
    Excuse yourself and go to the nearest bathroom to freshen up. Go alone so that you can attend to your body without drawing a lot of attention.
  7. 7
    Use an emollient with a pleasant scent. Before going out in public, apply on your skin a cream or a body lotion that has a good scent, such as aloe vera, peaches, lilac, ozone, fresh linen, etc. Re-apply if needed (for example, after washing your hands or face during the day).
