We all know that personal hygiene is extremely important, but there might be a few of those body parts that you tend to miss! So here is the ultimate guide for a few of those difficult to clean body parts. Over time, earbuds or Q tips have become the go-to ear cleaner.
But these tiny cotton swabs are actually quite dangerous to put inside your ear as they are so small that they could rupture your eardrum or even cause infections! Instead, use a wet washcloth wrapped around your finger to gently clean the inside of your ear.
Always remember to clean behind your ears as well! We’re sure you’re brushing your teeth properly but did you know the taste buds on your tongue can also absorb food and accumulate bacteria and be a huge cause for bad breath? To make sure you’re cleaning it correctly use a soft toothbrush or the tongue scraper on the back of the toothbrush to gently scrape away at the surface and clean of any buildup.
Whether you keep your nails short or prefer them long so you can flaunt some nail art, the skin under your nails is a breeding ground for dirt and bacteria! The best way to clean them is to use a soft nail brush while in the shower or while washing your hands to wipe away all that gunk in an instant! The belly button is one of the most overlooked parts of the body when it comes to personal hygiene, but did you know that research shows there can be upto 60 types of bacteria hiding out in there! To clean it, use a Q-tip soaked in a little soap and water and gently wipe over your belly button to get rid of all the dirt. Then you can go over it with a wet washcloth.
Your vagina is one of the more personal regions when it comes to talking about personal hygiene. But it’s definitely one that should be paid a lot of attention to! The inside is actually self cleaning so there’s no need to get in there with soaps and washes. But, make sure to wash yourself on the outside with a mild, unscented soap, especially when you have your period! It’s also really important to wipe from the front to back after using the toilet so you always push bacteria away from your vagina and never towards it.
Our feet collect so much dirt and dust from walking on the street. Which is why its incredibly important not just to wash your feet but to focus on the skin between your toes as well. If not cleaned properly these areas might build up bacteria and might be the reason your feet don’t exactly smell like a bed of roses! Don’t forget to dry it thoroughly afterwards as well, because excess moisture can cause infections too! We hope these personal hygiene tips have you feeling squeaky clean from head to toe!
