8-Personal-Hygiene-Tips-To-Stay-Healthy*

Good personal hygiene is important for personal appearance and health, both for yourself and for others. When you are clean, other people will respect you more and are likely to want to be around you. It is also an important part of maintaining your own health. If you don’t wash regularly or wear clean clothes, it’s easy to catch a cold or other illness that can make your life unpleasant until the illness passes.

The tips follow below!

1. Trim your nails

It’s not really a secret that trimming your nails is a great way to avoid picking at them and ruining them, but it’s also important if you want to keep yourself healthy. Trimming your nails keeps bacteria from getting underneath and causing infection, which can lead to serious health problems like gangrene (which is when the flesh below your nail becomes necrotized). If you’re prone to biting or chewing on fingers or cuticles, try wearing rubber bands around each hand—this will help keep you from picking at those areas.

2. Shave carefully

It’s important to keep your skin smooth and free of hair. Shaving can cause infection, so be sure to follow these tips:

  •         Use a clean razor. If you use an old or dull one, it can cause nicks and cuts that allow bacteria to enter the bloodstream.
  •         Shave with the grain of the hair, not against it, as this may irritate your skin and cause ingrown hairs.
  •         Use shaving cream or gel before shaving so that your skin is properly lubricated for a closer shave without irritation or razor burn; apply after rinsing off any residue from prior applications so that no more than two layers of product are applied at once (this will help ensure proper lubrication).
  •         Wash with cold water after shaving if possible—hot water opens up pores and increases the risk for infection by opening them up even further; additionally, hot water dries out already-irritated skin which could exacerbate problems caused by shaving itself (such as ingrown hairs).

3. Keep a tidy home

Next, it’s important to keep your home tidy. The kitchen and bathroom should be cleaned daily, while the rest of the house can be tackled weekly or bi-weekly. Start with these two areas because they’re usually where dirt accumulates first.

If you find yourself having trouble staying on top of your cleaning schedule, ask a family member or friend for help—anyone who’s willing! If that doesn’t work for you, consider hiring a professional cleaner (it may cost more at first but will pay off over time).

4. Shower regularly

Showering regularly is important for your personal appearance and personal health. Showers can make you look and feel better, but they also improve your mood and overall health. You should shower daily to maintain good hygiene. However, if you’re busy or just don’t want to take a shower every day, try taking one every other day instead!

5. Wash your hands with soap and water often

This is one of the most important things you can do to prevent germs from spreading. It’s especially important after using the bathroom, before eating food, and after touching any surface that may have germs on it (like a doorknob or shopping cart). And because bacteria can also collect on soap, use better commercial soap dispensers!

6. Brush your teeth

 It’s not just about keeping them clean; brushing your teeth in the bathroom can also help prevent gum disease, which can lead to tooth loss. So brush up! It’s gross to think about, but bacteria loves to hang out on your tongue, so make sure you’re giving it a good scrubbing every so often. You can buy a tongue scraper or use a toothbrush with some soap added to it for extra cleaning power (don’t worry—it won’t taste like soap).

6. Wear clean clothes every day

It’s important to wear clean clothes every day — especially if you work in a public place like a restaurant or hospital. If you can’t wash your clothes every day, try to do so at least once every two days. This will help prevent bacteria from building up on your clothes and spreading around the home or workplace.

You can buy a tongue scraper or use a toothbrush with some soap added to it for extra cleaning power (don’t worry—it won’t taste like soap).

8. Don’t share towels

Don’t share towels or washcloths with other people. Germs can spread easily this way because towels and washcloths are usually used on more than one person in a day. Use separate towels for each person in the house so you don’t have to disinfect them after each use.

By taking a few simple steps, you can keep yourself healthy and save yourself from illness!
