You may have seen those people walking around with those yellow eagle claws – those long, scraggly yellow-tinged fingernails. Usually those belong to hardcore smokers, but it can even happen to the casual smoker. In addition, smoking can dry out your hands, and leave a smell on your hands. Taking a note from the Forensic genius Locard and his famed principle (Locard’s Principle): Whenever two objects come into contact with one another, they always leave a trace on each other. Or something like that.

What that means is that every time you touch your clothes, you will be leaving a smell behind. Likewise, every time you reach out to shake someone’s hand, you will leave that scent on them – and not everyone will appreciate that.

Fortunately getting rid of the scent is not that hard. A simple thing to do is wash your hands afterwards. Depending on the smoke and the soap, this will either work or it won’t. If it does not, you might need to try a different type of soap, such as a granulated soap that will scrub off the skin cells. Another idea is to use a lemon to clean your hands. The natural acids work wonders. If you are at a restaurant that allows cigars, you can even ask for a lemon from your server.

Tip # 8: Don’t Forget Your Hair

Taking a shower is also a good idea after you smoke. Again, use a scrubbing soap – not only will it ensure you get rid of that smell, it exfoliates the skin as well. And do not forget that smoke collects in your hair (I remember seeing this crazy woman smoke one time, and watching the smoke gather around her head like a dragon).

I find using a “tar” shampoo like those people use for dandruff works best for me. I could not say why, but I assume it has something to do with . But what do I know?

Some people say hair spray helps out, but to me, it just blends in with the smell and creates some other type of smell.
