Riding under the scorching sun with a full-size jacket and other gears make us all sweat like a pig. Not to mention, motorcycle tourers are the real road trippers who face direct sun, mud, the gush of winds and bad roads, to go places.
But being so much physically active, it becomes very hard to take care of yourself especially when we men, are not used to investing loads of time and money on personal care.
However, with these grooming essentials (easy to pack & carry) you will definitely feel fresh and confident, before or after those exhausting hours on the bike. The best part is, it hassle free to use and the results are very rewarding.
1. Face Wash
This one is no brainer and is actually the most common beauty product, guys use. And if you wear a half face helmet, face wash becomes even more important to keep as your daily use product.

These are life savers if you have ridden to a place with very less or no water. All you need to do is spray it over your hair and you are done. It’s real quick and easy. PS: Do not fall for the myth that wearing helmet causes hair loss. That is not true at all.

Bikers can get very sweaty under that jacket and tight pants resulting into a bad body odour. This can get very embarrassing if you going to meet someone special and can’t afford to give out a bad impression about your hygiene. Also, don’t get confuse between a perfume and deodorant. Deodorants are way more effective in fighting body odour than less lasting perfumes.

And looking good is not an offence anyway, is it boys?
