Among the Celts it is believed the hands, feet and nails were kept very well-groomed. In one source, a warrior is spoken of disapprovingly as having ‘ragged nails’ and ‘unclean feet’, which was considered shameful.
They apparently washed their hands and feet with soap in the morning and bathed with it in the evening even as frequently as every day. After bathing they would apply oil and scented herbs to the skin and comb them into the hair.
Warriors (and possibly others) also were known to “manscape”, often shaving or perhaps using lye to depilitate their entire bodies except for their mustaches and head hair. These were grown very long, rinsed with lime water and dressed with lime-based pomade which turned them very white.
For war they would paint themselves head to foot with woad occasionally incorporating symbols in the overall presentation to provide a awe-inducing visual for the enemy.
