The 6 Best Hygiene Products To Add To Your Routine

No comments

My first and main priority when smoking cigars is not to have funky breath, a stuffy nose, and too awfully still, smell like cigars, the day after.  When it comes to smoking cigars, yes, we do say “Keep it Smokey,” but that’s in the figurative sense of meaning “Smoking Cigars.” As a cigar smoker, this should not compromise your hygiene. You still want to practice good health regimens and proper cigar etiquette. There are some really good products that you can add to your cigar smoking bag and pouches to promote a healthy cigar experience.

There are many healthy habits that you can do regularly to keep your hygiene, as a cigar smoker on point. And, it does not have to break the bank to do this nor do you have to have mainstream products:

  • Wash your hair as often as needed, to avoid build-up and to just overall cleanse your scalp.
  • Keep your hands washed and moisturized before and after having a cigar.
  • Brushing your teeth and using mouth wash, to keep freshness after having a cigar, is a must.
  • Chew sugar-free gum.
  • Cleanse your palate by drinking water infused with lemons and mint leaves, it helps with keeping you hydrated and moistens your throat.
  • Using Saline Nasal Spray

If you never heard of or considered using a saline nasal spray, cigar enthusiast, Marrisa (The Privy Leaf) suggested this because she had to establish a routine that worked best for her as a cigar smoker, to improve her smoke sessions and keeping hygiene always in mind.  What she discovered is using a non-medicated nasal moisturizing spray is great after an all-day smoke session. 

She adds that mouth discomfort and cigar breath doesn’t only come from bacteria build-up on the tongue, but it also comes from drying out your mouth, drying of your nasal passage, and mucus builds up during smoking.

A simple non-medicated nasal moisturizing spray clears out the tobacco soot, as well as the build-up. It moisturizes your nasal passage and helps with cigar breath.
