How to enhance your hygiene and prevent body infections

Hello friends, we are treating personal cleanliness and ways it can be improved in our everyday activities.

Hygiene deals with personal and professional care practices to most aspects of living. Regular hygiene practices maybe considered good habits by a society while the neglect of hygiene can be considered disgusting, disrespectful or even threatening. Good hygiene includes washing of the person’s body, hair, hands, as well as brushing and flossing teeth, caring for gums, and keep the feet clean. Hygiene is more than simply being clean. Practicing personal hygiene helps to live a healthy lifestyle.

It helps to prevent people from catching or spreading forms of disease or illness. Caring for your appearance and body smells is important to a person’s self-esteem and confidence. In addition, body hygiene enables one to be better equipped to fight any sort of diseases or illnesses.



Many diseases and conditions can be prevented or controlled through appropriate personal hygiene and by frequently washing part of the body with soap and clean water. Good body washing practices can prevent the spread of hygiene related disease. Measures to be taken for the skin include:

Shower Daily

This is the best way to get rid of any dirt, sweat, or gems your body may have accumulated throughout the day. Showering daily helps you feel good, look, and smell your best throughout the day. Use sponge or hand towel to gently scrub your entire body especially under armpit, back of the ear, fingernails, areas around the nose, removing dead skin cells and dirt. Most importantly these items (sponge and hand towels) should be replaced regularly because they harbor bacteria.

Wear Deodorant

Antiperspirant helps control excessive sweat while deodorant covers up unpleasant body odor caused by sweat. Consider using a natural, aluminum-free deodorant to reduce potential health risk associated with conventional deodorant.

Wash Your Clothes after Wearing Them

In general, shirts and underpants should be washed after every use while shorts and trousers can be worn a few times before they require washing. Wearing dirty or unwashed clothes can predispose you to boil. Endeavour to remove any stain on your clothe before wearing them.

Clip Your Fingernails and Toenails Regularly

Not only will this keep your hands and feet looking their best, it will prevent breakage and other potential damage to your nails. Short nails cannot trap gems the way long nails do. Short nails are probably the best option however if you prefer longer nails, endeavour to always remove dirt from them to prevent bacterial infection.

Wash Your Hands with Soap And Water Regularly

This is one of the most important ways of avoiding getting sick and spreading gems to others. Wash your hands after using the rest room, before, during, and after preparing food, before eating food, before and after caring for someone who is sick, after blowing your nose, coughing or sneezing. In addition, consider keeping hand sanitizer with you at all times,.


Many diseases and conditions can be prevented or controlled through appropriate personal hygiene and frequently washing the face with soap and clean water. Facial hygiene practices include not only washing the face but also properly caring for teeth, mouth, eyes, and ears.


This is the practice of keeping the mouth, teeth, and gums clean and healthy to prevent diseases. Dental hygiene and oral health are often taken for granted but they are essential part of everyday life. Proper tooth brushing with the right amount of toothpaste is critically important to good dental hygiene. Tooth decay is a common problem for people of all ages. For children, untreated cavities can cause pain and poor appearance.

Healthy body and long life always guaranteed….
