How To Manage Personal Hygiene
This is the best way to get rid of any dirt, sweat, and/or germs that your body may have accumulated throughout the day, and prevents hygiene-related diseases. As a plus, showering daily helps you feel, look, and smell your best throughout the day. Use a hand towel to gently scrub your entire body, removing dead skin cells and dirt. Remember to replace these items regularly as they can easily harbor bacteria. If you don't want to wash your hair every day, then invest in a shower cap and wash your body with soap and water. If you don't have time to shower, then use a hand towel to rinse your face and underarms at the end of the day.
Wash Your Face Daily
Remember that the skin on your face is more sensitive than on other parts of your body. You can either use your face cleanser in the shower or wash your face separately at the sink.
Brush your teeth every morning and evening.
Regular tooth-brushing helps prevent gum disease, which has been linked to other illnesses elsewhere in the body like heart disease, stroke, and diabetes. It is especially important to brush teeth after eating sweets or acidic foods that cause tooth erosion. Floss your teeth every night to prevent the gum disease gingivitis.
Antiperspirant helps control excessive sweat, while deodorant covers up unpleasant body odor caused by sweat. Consider using a natural, aluminum-free deodorant to reduce potential health risks associated with conventional deodorants. If you don't wear deodorant, then rinse your underarms with soap and water throughout the day to remove unpleasant odor.
Wash your clothes after wearing them.
In general, shirts should be washed after every use, while pants and shorts can be worn a few times before they require washing. Use your best judgment to determine how often to wash your clothes.
Clip your fingernails and toenails regularly.
Not only will this keep your hands and feet looking their best, it will prevent hangnails, breakage, and other potential damage to your nails. Short nails can't trap dirt under them the way long nails do. How often you clip your fingernails will depend on your personal desired length. To decide, take into account what you use your hands for on a daily basis. Use an orange stick to remove dirt from underneath the fingernails to prevent bacterial infections.
