A quick buffing with a cloth will do the trick. If you’re particularly meticulous and want to take your helmet even further, you can use a light coat of clear sealer on the inside and outside of the helmet.

This will help protect your helmet against bacteria and other germs that could be lurking inside your helmet. If you’re particularly concerned about the condition of your helmet, you can also invest in a helmet cover to protect your helmet’s finish against potential damage.
