Ever since we were little children our parents and teachers have told us over and over again to practice proper hygiene, and they were right in doing so. Personal hygiene is so important that ignoring it can result to various health problems. Now, if you don’t know where to start, let me help you.
I can’t force you to take a shower especially if you’re the type of person who is used to go on for days without a bath. But let me remind you that regular cleansing is important if you want to stay healthy. Taking a bath allows you to get rid of skin germs that might cause you unwanted disease. It also allows you to well, look like a real human being.
Taking care of your skin is also very important especially since it is the visible part of your body. Avoid leaving it dry-looking by applying a good amount of lotion after every bath. Don’t hesitate to use perfume too especially if you have body odor. Also, keep your skin protected from the sun too by using protective covering whenever you go outside.
Brushing your teeth regularly is also a way of improving your personal hygiene – your oral hygiene to be specific. Make it a habit of brushing after every meal or before you start and end your day. It will not only keep your teeth look white as snow, it will also keep your breath fresh round the clock.
Long fingernails are favorite hideouts of dirt and bacteria. If you can manage it, have both your fingernails and toenails trimmed at least twice a month. You should also take note that fingernails grow twice as fast as toenails especially during the summer. Also, make sure you wash your hands thoroughly before using them to put food in your mouth.
Proper hygiene helps you stay healthy and fresh but it doesn’t just end there. By practicing it you can be sure to attract friends, clients or even a lifetime partner. You may react and say that it’s so simple but keep in mind that the basic or the simple things in life are always the most effective.
