It is of prime importance for women to keep themselves clean and sanitized. A clean body will keep you healthy and make you confident and presentable. Here are some easy and inexpensive ways to keep yourself clean:
Hair should be washed at least a couple of times in the week with shampoo and conditioner to get rid of dirt, germs and excess oil in the scalp. However one should not overdo it by washing the hair daily as this would make the scalp devoid of the essential oils and nutrients it produces. Too much washing can make your hair dry and brittle.
Using olive or coconut oil for the hair mixed with lemon is an excellent homemade remedy for women who suffer from seborrheic dermatitis commonly known as dandruff. Massaging the right oils onto your scalp will reduce in itching and flaking of the scalp, making it healthy and lustrous. Homemade concoctions for the hair are better than the ubiquitous, chemically loaded anti-dandruff shampoos of the market.
Keeping your teeth clean white and germ-free is also an essential part of personal hygiene. When you smile, you certainly do not want to flash stained teeth and gums. For this, it’s imperative to brush and floss your teeth twice a day. If you want sparkling white teeth, you can use a homemade paste of baking soda, and hydrogen peroxide.
Bad breath can be a real turn off. It is undeniably, a significant facet of hygiene.
It’s important to scrub and clean your tongue with your toothbrush or a tongue scraper to get rid of stinking breath.
Ears need to be cleaned softly with cotton buds. Wax is produced in the ears to protect against bacteria and dirt. However, too much cleaning can cause pain and in extreme cases even hearing loss.
Extreme heat can cause excessive sweating which brings along with it a smelly body, rashes, red and itchy skin. An excellent way to cool down your body is to consume foods which have high water content such as melons, cucumbers, grapes, and other fresh fruits. Consumption of eight to ten glasses of water will help to beat the heat and cut down on that dehydrated feeling.
To keep your body smelling fresh and pleasant all day, bathing with soap is not sufficient. Using deodorants available in spray and roll on variants is crucial. Sweaty underarms? Use Sirona underarm sweat pads. Some people like to make their deodorants at home. Rubbing some coconut oil in the armpits can also help in removing bacteria.
Your skin needs to be smooth, glowing and wrinkle-free. For this, the application of sunscreen is a must. For skin that feels too dry and dehydrated, good quality creams and lotions will help.
In the process of keeping yourself clean do not forget your feet. Feet have sweat glands that can stink badly. They should be washed and dried and kept bacteria free.
For women, dark circles under the eyes look very ungainly. For this, your beauty sleep and proper hydration is a must. There are several DIY remedies to remove dark circles.
