“There’s a lot more than what meets the eye.”
This quote pretty much sums up the importance of good hygiene. It’s a lot more than just looking presentable. Maintaining good hygiene is key to having a healthy life. One that is free from sickness and other ailments. It’s importance has multiplied manifolds since the COVID 19 pandemic, where taking care of your personal hygiene is at the forefront of keeping oneself safe from catching the deadly virus. Also, not only does keeping clean help you boost your immunity, but also makes you feel fresh and energised.
So here are a few simple yet effective ways to maintain good hygiene. They’re quick and easy, taking little of your time, but give lasting results, helping you leave a good impression on whoever you meet.
Take care of your oral hygiene
I think it goes without saying that bad breath can be an instant turn off, which is why maintaining good dental hygiene is of utmost importance. Brushing twice a day can help to remove bits and pieces from the mouth which can otherwise cause tooth decay, cavity and bad breath. Another important tip for good dental hygiene is flossing daily. If you’re someone who has a history of cavities and gum related issues, regular visits to the dentist are recommended to have a better plan of action to keep your dental hygiene intact.
Wash your face
Some people consider washing the face using just water to be enough. However, it doesn’t do a good enough job of removing makeup, dirt and sweat, resulting in acne, blackheads and whiteheads. Hence, it’s important to incorporate a face cleanser in your everyday routine. However, it’s important to note here that several face cleansers can aggravate the acne situation, hence choosing one that is gentle and suits your skin type is imperative. The Leovard Multicleanser is a gentle yet effective face wash that helps to remove any accumulated dirt and debris while also gently exfoliating the skin, giving you a fresh and radiant glow, each time.
Take regular showers
Regularly bathing is a great way to keep bacterial and viral infections at bay as they help to wash away dirt, grime and sweat. It also helps to instantly make you feel fresher and more energized, ready to take on the day as opposed to going to work without a shower and feeling lethargic the whole time. It also helps to combat body odour, especially during the extremely hot summer days, where showering twice a day is recommended. Use a gentle shower gel that doesn’t strip the body of its natural oils, making it dry and flaky.
Trim your nails
Chipped nails can really make one look unkempt and untidy, which is why taking care of your nails and hands is extremely important. Make sure to regularly trim your nails and keep a clipper and file on you at all times. The Leovard nail care kit is a perfect travel companion in this regard, consisting of all the tools you may need for a quick manicure. It comes in a small case that can easily fit in your purse or backpack, ensuring that you always look presentable.
Pay attention to your hair
Having your hair styled sleek and smooth exudes a sense of confidence and power. However, that’s only possible to achieve if one takes care of their hair by having a hair care routine in place. Regularly oiling the hair using good quality natural oils, like the Leovard Oil Fusion, a blend of eleven natural oils, helps to nourish the hair, making it stronger and less prone to breakage, making it easier to style. Another pro tip to always looking your best is to have a travel size brush or comb, like the Leovard comb, on you at all times. It helps to tame any flyaways without causing frizz or breakage, making you look spik and span in a jiffy.
Keep your environment clean
While the basis of good hygiene starts from your own self, keeping your surroundings clean and tidy is a part of maintaining good hygiene. Because no matter how much you look after your own body, your health, both mentally and physically will be affected negatively due to a polluted environment. So try to regularly disinfect your house, wash your beddings and prepare your food in a neat nod tidy kitchen space. Let fresh air enter the house to keep it from becoming damp and mouldy.
To sum up, living a life that is free of illnesses and disease requires one to be mindful of their hygiene. Taking proactive steps to keep yourself and your environment clean will enable you to create a life that is a true joy to live.
