Good personal hygiene practice is the first step to a better health. Daily habits such as bathing, flossing, brushing and washing your hands may look boring and monotonous, but they come under very important personal hygiene. They help you feel good and keep you free from viruses, bacteria and illnesses.
- Cleansing tips
Your natural body oils and discharge are a good form of the protection against infections. Excessive washing, or harsh soaps and cleaners may strip away your skin protective barrier and leave you more and more vulnerable to the infections causing discomfort and odor.
So, remember to practice cleansing properly. Use gentle soaps and body washers with simple ingredients to cleanse your skin and protect it from side effects of commercial skincare products. if possible, use natural remedies to cleanse your body. For instance, you can wash face with honey, especially dry skin. As honey includes natural anti-bacterium properties so that it aids in cleansing your body skin while moisturizing the skin effectively.
- Cleanse your ear
Beside nail hygiene, mouth hygiene tips, I would like to remind you to take care of your ear hygiene. Do it after you have a bath. Use cotton buds to cleanse your ears gently as it helps avoid irritation to ear skin and protect your ears against ear infections and other problems.
Remember to cleanse your ears regularly but do not “dig” something too deeply inside the inner ears as it may affect your ear functioning related to deafness.
It is very important please take note some people are quick to perceive odour from ears people like me and it can turn someone off the smell of accumulated wax.
- Women tips
As a woman, you are programmed to care for necessary menstrual needs on your own, especially cleaning reproductive tract before, during and after menstruation.
You may feel unclean during and after your menstruation, so you turn to many douches for cleaning. According to experts, douching forces bacteria as well as debris up into reproductive tract. As a result, it can lead to a more painful condition, called pelvic inflammation. On another hand, some products you use during menses can cause irritation leading to infection, such as tampons or scented pads.
It is possible for you to double up your pad if you are on heavy flow so as to save you from looking dirty, And please after mensuration please try using pant liners it’s cool it saves your pant from smell of discharge.
- Clothing tips
Choose clothing you wear that allow air flow and secretions can evaporate. As there is no air flow to your skin, fungi and bacteria can grow in the dark folds and moist. Related to women’s disease, this condition can be a cause of vaginal yeast. Instead of wearing tight clothing, choose more comfortable materials and wear cotton underpants with cotton crotches. Avoid wearing leather pants, wet bathing suits or tight spandex through the day or for long period of time. In addition, change clothes after exercising, working out or joining strenuous activities that make you sweat a lot.
- Oral hygiene
With a fresh breath, you may often want to whisper sweet sonnets into your beloved’s ear, yet if you have any problem with your breath and smell in the mouth, you will never be confident to get closer to someone. As a young lady or an adult, take care about your breath and oral health.
You don’t need to invest in an electric toothbrush. Bye a normal one and practice your dental health care routine daily.
Floss everyday (dental floss help remove food debris) and I know it might be quite expensive but you should have a dental floss In fact, flossing is very important, but few people do it regularly. But it is really worth for freshening your breath, preventing gum disease and saving you from dental problems like dental caries
Also, remember to brush your tongue (most important because if not brushed properly oral malodor will take place). Give it a good scrub when you are brushing your teeth. However if your gag flex is sensitive, you want to try other tips. For instance, exhale through the mouth when you brush. Next, brush perpendicular to side to side of your tongue rather than forth and back.
