A human gives beauty tips
by Nathan'ette Burdine: March 16, 2017  Updated-March 19, 2017

I’m just a human who’s going to give you some simple tips on what you need to do in order to smell good.

But before I do that, let me tell you where I got the idea from to share my human knowledge on smelling good.

I got this idea to share my humanly knowledge about ways to clean up the body from an article I saw on The Huffington Post.

The article was written by PureWow and it is titled “8 Secrets of Women Who Always Smell Good.” The article begins with, “You know that friend who always smells amazing no matter what time of day it is?”

According to PureWow, if you want to smell like a star then you need to start using and storing your perfume like a star.

PureWow says it’s all about where you keep your perfume, when you spray it on, and how you spray it on.

A person would read PureWow’s article and say to him or herself, “Mmm, this is some good stuff.”

However, where PureWow lost me on their beauty secrets was when they gave the advice for folks to spray the sweet smelling stuff on their skin after work.

This is the advice PureWow gives, “For any life moments that fall outside of your regular nine-to-five (like when you’re going to dinner straight from the office), keep a travel-size sample or rollerball of perfume in your purse for a quick refresh.”

Anybody who just moves around all day, whether at work or at home, knows that spraying the sweet smelling stuff on top of funk doesn’t help.

And yes folks, whether you work in the air condition or not, spraying the sweet smelling stuff on your skin that has been exposed to all types of smells, like bathroom smells, won’t make you smell good if you have a date after work.

So, here’s my humanly advice on what you need to do in order to smell good. You need to make sure everything around you, a part of you, and on you is clean from your car, your house, your body, to your clothes.

If any one of these things are dirty, that funk will get on you. Next, while bathing, make sure you have three different bath towels. You need one for your body, another for your face, and one for your front and back.

Folks, never, never, never, ever use the same towel that you use for your body or the towel you use for your front and back to wash your face. That’s just nasty. Plus, make sure you use soap and not just water when you’re washing your body.

A shower is the best way to clean your body because the water runs off and doesn’t stay as it does in a bath. So, take showers, at least three times a day. And oh yeah, make sure you put on deodorant and lotion. You don’t want to be musky and ashy after taking a shower.

Also, you need to wash your hair. This one is tricky because washing your hair too much can leave you without any hair. So, if your hair is oily, wash it every day. Otherwise, wash it at least two to three times a week.

Then there’s your mouth. You need to brush, floss, and use Listerine at least twice a day. And get a waterpik to go in between those hard to reach places and make sure you visit a dentist at least twice a year. The dental hygienist can get any extra tartar and plaque off of your teeth.

Here’s some extra stuff. Make sure you wipe yourself real good after using the bathroom and wash your hands with soap and water. Having a nasty, front and or back is a guarantee that you will be funky. So wipe yourself thoroughly and wash your hands thoroughly with soap and water. And if you need some special wipes to clean yourself, then use them.

Finally, don’t ever, ever, ever spray on any perfume after you leave work. This here is similar to folks getting up in the morning and spraying on perfume or cologne before they go out. It stinks like hell. So, don’t do that.

Remember, always schedule your appointments a head of time so you can make it home in time to clean your behind.
