How To Maintain Personal Hygiene

0

We often love to stay with people who smell good and feels like running away from those who stinks. Check out the following ideas to smell fresh all day long.

  • Take a bath at least once every single day. Use a loafah or a sponge to scrub your body to eliminate dead cells.
  • Wash your face early in the morning when you wake up and just before you go to bed to remove makeup with an oil-based or water-based cleanser depending upon your skin type.
  • After a shower wear a natural deodorant to keep sweat and odour under control. In case you don’t wear deodorant wash your underarms with soap and water frequently or just wipe away the sweat with a tissue every time you use a washroom.
  • Wash your hair with mild shampoo every 2-3 days to keep your scalp clean and free from fungal infections.
  • Comb your hair 2 times a day. This improves blood circulation to the scalp and helps to get healthy glowing hair.
  • Change your clothes every day and wash thoroughly with detergent and water. Allow the wet clothes to sundry.
  • Do not share your personal belongings such as towel, brush, comb, handkerchief etc with others.
  • Brush your teeth twice a day. Flossing is very important to maintain clean teeth and gums.
  • Change your toothbrush every 6 months
  • Use a tongue cleaner after you brush to remove the leftover food particles in your mouth as it can cause bad breath.
  • Make an appointment with the dentist every 6 months to assess oral health.
  • Women should change their sanitary napkins every 6 hours to prevent infections as well as leakage.
  • Wash your intimate areas every time after you pee.
  • Cut your nails to avoid dirt getting stuck in your nail bed causing infections.
  • Always wear socks while wearing shoes to prevent odour.
  • Wash your hands after you use the toilet, before and after eating food, after playing with your pet dog etc
  • Keep an alcohol-based sanitizer liquid handy in case if you are not able to use soap and water.
  • Make sure you use a tissue paper or a  handkerchief while coughing or sneezing. This prevents the spread of infections.
  • Wear a mask before going near a patient with highly infectious diseases such as tuberculosis.
  • Be extra cautious while preparing or handling foods to prevent contamination with microbes.
  • Wash your bed sheets and pillow covers at least once in two weeks.
  • A good night sleep of 6-8 hours is important to relax your mind and body. This strengthens the immune system and keeps it fully functional at all times.
  • Wipe your entire house especially the corners with a strong disinfectant once a week to prevent germ buildup.
  • Do not allow stagnant water to get collected in or around your place. This creates a playground for insects especially mosquitoes to lay eggs and spread infections.
  • Regular maintenance of household septic tanks is necessary to prevent contamination and infections.

Make Personal Hygiene your top most priority rather than a choice!!
