Every girl or girl strives to maintain personal hygiene. However, some don't know where to start. After reading this article, you will learn how to maintain good hygiene and take care of yourself.
Step 1. Take a shower every day
A shower or bath is essential to keep it clean and smell good, so wash yourself thoroughly every day, even when you don't feel like it. Remember to thoroughly wash your feet and armpits.
Step 2. Consider removing hair from your legs, face, underarms, pubis, arms, or any other part of your body if you think it will be more hygienic
Body hair is not yet a sign of lack of hygiene: men have it, and at the same time, many of them are all right with hygiene! You don't need to shave to maintain good hygiene. Shaving body hair is a highly personal matter; shave off the parts you deem necessary and when you deem necessary. Use shaving cream or soap - never try to shave dry, as this can lead to skin irritation, scratches and red bumps that you don't want. Also, instead of shaving, you can use wax, hair removal cream, epilator, pluck hairs or remove them with a thread. Step 3. Monitor your oral hygiene.
Brush your teeth, use dental floss and mouthwash, and keep your breath fresh. Visit your dentist regularly.
Step 4. Consider using a deodorant or antiperspirant every day
Good smell in itself does not mean good hygiene, but bad smell is a sure sign of lack of hygiene. If you rinse sweat from your body in time before it dries up and smells unpleasant from you, it is quite hygienic. However, it is very practical to use an antiperspirant, since you don't sweat with it. If you wish, you can also use perfume in any form for a pleasant aroma - perfume, toilet or perfume water, scented lotion or body spray. However, if the fragrances are causing you asthma or allergies, do not use them.
Step 5. Wear clean clothes
What's the point of being clean and then putting on dirty clothes? You will smell unpleasant and look unkempt.
Step 6. Wash your hair when you see it necessary
Do not wash your hair every day, as frequent washing will strip your hair and scalp of the natural oils (sebum) it needs to stay hydrated. Use a shampoo that's right for your hair type and never forget about conditioner. You can straighten or curl your hair if you want, but this is already a matter of style, not cleanliness.
Step 7. Trim your nails to prevent dirt from accumulating underneath
Do not bite, lick, or pick your nails. Nail polish is optional - apply it if you like, but try to do it no more than twice a month. Otherwise, the nails may turn yellow and weaken, and this is neither hygienic nor attractive.
Step 8. Take care of your face
A gentle cleanser and water, as well as the obligatory make-up remover before bed, are sufficient for basic facial hygiene. If you want your skin to be not only clean, but also beautiful, you can do the following:
- Use a cleanser that's right for your skin type. Apply a small amount of cleanser to wet hands and scrub to lather. Use a product that is gentle on the skin, as harsh products often dry out the skin and cause it to produce more sebum to help compensate for this dryness. Your job is to remove excess sebum and keep your skin hydrated. Don't use soap - it's too harsh on your face and isn't easy to wash off.
- Using your fingertips, massage the cleanser all over your face to remove dirt and grease. This will take approximately 30 seconds. First concentrate on the hairline, then pay special attention to the "T-zone" (forehead and nose area), then massage the area around the mouth and chin, then the cheeks. Clean your neck in a vertical upward motion. There are also sebaceous glands behind the ears, so you shouldn't neglect this area, even if it seems to you that this is an extra effort. When you are fifty, you will be glad that from your youth you have properly cared for your skin and helped it look great in maturity. Rinse your face with warm water and pat dry with a soft towel.
- A moisturizer is a very healthy thing. You've just washed away the dirt and grease, and now the moisturizer will help retain moisture in the upper layers of the skin, making you look younger and fresher. Moreover, it is pleasant to feel on the skin.
Step 9. Develop healthy habits
Wash your hands before eating. Don't pick your nose. Keep your piercings clean when wearing earrings or piercings. Do not peel off any healing wounds or abrasions. Wash your hands after using the toilet every time. Be sure to cover your mouth when you cough and only sneeze into a tissue or handkerchief. Never spit. Keep intimate areas clean. If your clothes get dirty, change your clothes.
- Always shower after your workout! Nobody likes the smell of sweat.
- Always brush your teeth and comb your hair at least twice a day. You don't want to look sloppy!
- Rinse the conditioner off your hair thoroughly. If you don't do this, your hair will become greasy and leave traces of conditioner on it.
- Carry sugar-free gum or mints with you and chew as needed, especially after meals. Research shows that sugar-free gum produces saliva that cleans your teeth, resulting in fresher breath, hydrated mouth, and cleaner teeth.
- Don't wear a sweaty bra: change it as soon as possible.
- Change your underwear daily.
- Remember to trim your toenails regularly. This maintains their hygiene and prevents the formation of fungus, as the toes are always damp with sweat.
- Separate dirty from clean clothes. Always dress clean after a shower! This will make you look and feel cleaner.
- If you don't have the time or opportunity to wash your clothes, wipe them with a tumble dryer to freshen them up for a moment.
