If you want to improve your health and beauty, losing weight and wearing makeup is just a start. It turns out that there was some truth in what your parents told you about picking scabs or biting your nails. Read on to find how changing hygiene habits can improve your well-being and attractiveness.
Insufficient hygiene practices will wreak havoc on your beauty. Daily dental and bathing practices are a must. Food particles left in your mouth will cause bad breathe and produce plaque formation around the gum area and in between the gaps of your teeth.
Promote good oral health by brushing and flossing after every meal. At the very minimum, you should brush your teeth twice a day. Buy low abrasion fluoride toothpaste. Using a gentle back and forth motion; brush the top, backside, and all areas around your teeth. Thoroughly rinse the toothbrush after brushing is complete.
Flossing is necessary to get the areas in between your teeth since most brushes cannot fit into the skinny gaps. Either use dental floss sticks or the string floss, but don’t overlook this important step. Food particles get stuck between your teeth and need to be removed to prevent gum disease, tooth decay, and foul breath.
Make regular visits to your dentist. Have your teeth cleaned at least twice a year and schedule a sitting to check for cavities or other necessary preventative treatment to maintain optimum gum health. If you’re suffering from gum disease, more frequent visits are necessary.
Daily bathing is essential to promote proper hygiene. Bathing is a ritual that is done mainly to remove dead skin, to feel clean, smell better, and even to relieve stress. However, the most important reason a person bathes is to reduce the harmful levels of germs on the body.
Dandruff can cause an untidy appearance. Washing your hair is necessary to remove dirt, sweat residue, and dead skin. This cleansing task should be performed at least twice a week with a gentle cleanser, and possibly more often, depending on your level of activity and exposure to the elements.
It’s important that you understand the dangers associated with infrequent cleanliness. Transmission of parasites can happen through contact with feces. Always wash your hands after using the bathroom, changing a diaper, or handling a pet.
Yes, it is possible to get a parasite from a cat or dog! Cat owners need to dispose of litter box remains, carefully. Apartment complex dwellers should carry rubber gloves to pick up dog feces from the yard. If you must travel with your pet in tow, take along sanitizing soap or hand wipes and use them often during pullovers at the rest stop.
Keep shorter nails rather than long because the fingers are a favorite hiding place for germs and shorter nails are easier to maintain. Carefully trim your nails at least once a week and use a nail trimmer to remove hangnails – never pull them off – because this can cause an infection at the root of the nail.
We have busy lives, and it’s easy to overlook important rituals such as going to the dentist or taking a regular shower. But when you make proper hygiene a priority, it makes a big impact on your continued health and physical beauty!
