So, just as there are rules of conduct, there are rules of ethics, so there are rules of personal hygiene. The rules of personal hygiene that should be followed and practiced by each individual, help to strengthen and maintain their health.
What is personal hygiene?
For centuries, people have valued and interpreted the habits of life according to the time and type of social regime in which they find themselves. Since ancient times, the Egyptian, Roman, and Greek communities have maintained and been familiar with certain rules of personal hygiene, and have generally been associated with bathing, hand washing, and hair. Personal hygiene is one of the ways we can all maintain good health. We need to pay attention to the body odors that our body emits, which can tell us a lot about the health of our body. If proper personal hygiene is maintained and at the same time maintained at an adequate level, it is possible to maintain almost perfect control of bacteria. Bacteria generally tend to coexist with humans all over the skin. So periodic washing of the places that are in greater contact with the external environment, with the places that most often become a source of odors or other infections, are the ways we can protect the skin, and also get rid of all the bacteria that generally inhabit our skin. Thus, periodic washing of the whole body is essential and fundamental in maintaining optimal health. It is good to pay special attention to the hands, as well as to areas where there is a large amount of hair or where there is generally intense sweating. Additionally, another extremely important for the maintenance of personal hygiene are the anal and genital area, which are necessary for good health care and protection from getting infections.
The body and the places that produce the greatest amount of sweat
The area that has the highest production of sweat is the armpits, so it is recommended to wash with plenty of soap and water. Additionally in hygiene and prevention of unpleasant odor from them is the use of deodorants. Changing and changing clothes periodically is also a habit that will help maintain a healthy and normal body odor. Constantly changing, washing clothes and storing clothes in a clean environment. However, excessive washing should not be excessive, as this can cause loss of oily skin which acts as a protection, as well as lead to the elimination of all microbes that are on the skin as well as in the mucosa. If this happens, the skin will result in injuries and infections.
