Good Grooming Habits for Commuters You Must Take Note Of

Whether it is the rainy season or the sizzling summer, commuting may be a pain. As a matter of fact, commuting in major cities is difficult for a number of reasons, including the increased chance of being attacked by pickpockets and other criminals as well as the slower speeds and increased pollution.


Even going on an errand as simple as a trip to the supermarket might be difficult. It's a drag on your normal appearance and hygiene, and not only because you'll be exhausted all the time.


This is especially true in the Philippines, where you need a specific set of skills just to go to your workplace or destination. You'll need your wits about you as you try to make your way from A to B in the face of obstacles like traffic and bad weather.


And since we know how easy it is to lose track of your own style when you're concentrating so hard on getting from point A to point B, we devise handy grooming habits for our fellow commuters who use public transportation on a daily basis.



Good Grooming Habits for Commuters

If you're a regular commuter, here are some handy tips that are worth taking note of to keep yourself and your belongings still on point on the road. In this piece, we'll go over some of the things you can do to maintain your good grooming habits when staying in your house and lot Philippines is not possible.



A. Personal Hygiene Hacks for Commuters

Remember that effective grooming begins with basic personal hygiene, and do these tasks before heading out the door.



Take a morning shower.

Cold showers in the morning are not only pleasant, but also energetic, especially if you take them first thing. Aside from cleaning the body of dirt and bacteria, it also has the added benefits of increasing blood flow, releasing stress-reducing hormones, and bolstering the immune system.


Keep in mind that a chilly shower may not be to everyone's liking. If you don't like taking showers in freezing water, you can always settle for a warm one.


Apply a shampoo that treats dandruff

If you're a commuter, this is one of the most crucial hair care techniques you can follow. You may use an anti-dandruff or dry shampoo even if you don't currently have dandruff. In this manner, your scalp won't react negatively to the stresses of commuting and city living.


Apply some hair conditioner

When used alone, shampoo may leave hair dry and brittle from stripping away natural oils and grime. The smoothness and softness of your hair can last throughout the day if you apply some good conditioner after you wash it.



Make sure your hair is dry before you leave.

After taking a bath first thing in the morning, you should dry your locks before heading out of your home to avoid dirt sticking to your wet hair.


Use a comb with broad teeth to remove knots

Choose a wide-toothed comb or brush that can pass through your hair without tugging or damaging the roots. It's best to begin brushing from the ends and work your way up.



Don't let your hair fall to your face.

Keep your hair in place so you always look neat. Although serums are specifically designed to tame unruly hair, make sure to use them sparingly to avoid making your hair seem oily or heavy.


Keep your hands off your hair

Touching your hair, although seemingly innocuous, may actually generate excess oil due to the transfer of your body's natural oils.


Put your long hair up, or in a braid

Tie up your long hair to keep it out of your eyes and of your fellow commuters. You may get away with just a low ponytail, a French braid, or a Dutch braid. These easy hairdos can keep you looking polished all the way to the workplace, even after a long journey.


Always bring clips and bobby pins

When you're in the open air, bobby pins are a must-have accessory for keeping your short hair in place. Bring some along in your bag, coin purse, or locker room, so you can keep your hair from flying everywhere.



B. Dressing Points for Your Daily Commute

Dressing right is crucial when commuting. Follow these tips:



Put on something neat and cozy.

Wearing clean, comfortable clothing might help you relax throughout your journey. Layer up during the colder days and go light in the summer.


T-shirts or button downs

When moving quickly between vehicles, a t-shirt or work clothes is one of the most convenient shirts to wear. However, button-down shirts are a better option for the always chic and fans of smart casuals.


Comfortable bottoms and skirts

Denim jeans and leggings are no-brainer for commuters. Pants and slacks might also be appropriate for the office. It goes without saying that skirts are acceptable work attire for women who want a more feminine look.


Running shoes or flat shoes

Running shoes are the ideal footwear for commuting since they are so soft and cushioned on the feet. You can also choose something comfortable to stroll in, such as sandals, ballerina flats, loafers, or slip-ons.



Avoid Strong Perfumes

It's OK to care about your own hygiene, but don't put the needs of other passengers at risk. Choose a scent with a low concentration so that it doesn't overwhelm other passengers on crowded public transportation. Use a dab of perfume on your wrists and neck for a light fragrance that lasts all day.



C. Commuters' Practical Makeup Tips

You don't have to include wearing makeup as part of your standard of personal hygiene, but you should if it makes you feel good and you have the time. You may use it to make your features stand out more and get a more put-together, expert look.



Opt for lighter and more natural look makeup

To prevent your makeup from smudging while you perspire and create sebum, choose a lightweight, oil-free foundation and neutral eyeshadow colors. You may also use a BB cream that has enough SPF to shield your skin from the sun and achieve a dewy and not greasy finish.


You may practice your contouring techniques later when you arrive in the office. Just make sure to set your makeup with a translucent powder, focusing on the T-zone area.


It's always a challenge to be a commuter in the Philippines, especially with the current public transportation status in the country, adding up the hot and humid weather. Thankfully, there are now jeepney modernization program and various transportation infrastructure projects to improve the daily life of commuters in the future.
