Womens' biggest hygiene and grooming turn offs revealed
If your grooming routine is little more than the holy trinity – shit, shower, shave – don’t expect much action this summer.
In a new survey conducted by ShowersToYou, nearly 800 single women were quizzed on their biggest hygiene and grooming turn-offs. And while some of their listed annoyances are universal, it seems the opposite sex knows when you cut corners (rather than fingernails) in the bathroom.
Topping the list with a whopping 98 per cent of respondents was bad breath. Which, considering the fact that nobody wants to touch tongues with a troll, makes total sense. Long fingernails closely followed at 87 per cent with greasy hands in third – something to take into account at your next BBQ.
Don’t think a cheap squirt of anything will suffice, either. Seventy five per cent of women listed the smell of cheap cologne as a major turn-off, so go light and fresh on your preferred summer fragrance.
Stenches lingered on the study like, well, a bad smell; respondents listed body odour of allvarieties as a major gripe, so ensure everywhere (and we mean everywhere) gets a good soak on the daily, lest you fall foul of the 74 per cent of women who pinpointed smelly knackers.
And, although warmer weather seems like a good excuse for a cigarette (spoiler: it isn’t), 68 per cent of women listed stale smoke as one of their biggest pet peeves. It's not big, it's not clever and it's not attractive, either.
