how to maintain personal hygiene

Hygiene is a set of practices performed to preserve health. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), “Hygiene refers to conditions and practices that help to maintain health and prevent the spread of diseases.

Many people equate hygiene with ‘cleanliness,’ but hygiene is a broad term. It includes such personal habit choices as how frequently to bathe, wash hands, trim fingernails, and change clothing. It also includes attention to keeping surfaces in the home and workplace, including bathroom facilities, clean and pathogen-free.

Some regular hygiene practices may be considered good habits by a society, while the neglect of hygiene can be considered disgusting, disrespectful, or threatening.

Medical hygiene at home
Medical hygiene pertains to the hygiene practices that prevents or minimizes disease and the spreading of disease in relation to administering medical care to those who are infected or who are more “at risk” of infection in the home. Across the world, governments are increasingly under pressure to fund the level of healthcare that people expect. Care of increasing numbers of patients in the community, including at home is one answer, but can be fatally undermined by inadequate infection control in the home. Increasingly, all of these “at-risk” groups are cared for at home by a carer who may be a household member who thus requires a good knowledge of hygiene. People with reduced immunity to infection, who are looked after at home, make up an increasing proportion of the population (currently up to 20%).The largest proportion are the elderly who have co-morbidities, which reduce their immunity to infection. It also includes the very young, patients discharged from hospital, taking immuno-suppressive drugs or using invasive systems, etc. For patients discharged from hospital, or being treated at home special “medical hygiene” (see above) procedures may need to be performed for them e.g. catheter or dressing replacement, which puts them at higher risk of infection.

Antiseptics may be applied to cuts, wounds abrasions of the skin to prevent the entry of harmful bacteria that can cause sepsis. Day-to-day hygiene practices, other than special medical hygiene procedures are no different for those at increased risk of infection than for other family members. The difference is that, if hygiene practices are not correctly carried out, the risk of infection is much greater.

4 Everyday Habits to Maintain Personal Hygiene

4 Everyday Habits To Maintain Personal Hygiene.
1. Brush your teeth twice everyday
This is the most ignored part of personal hygiene. Brushing every day is important to get rid of the plaque that gets collected on the teeth. That is why it is important to brush your teeth twice a day.
2. Take a Bath Everyday
Bathing or showering is very important for personal hygiene. Everyday we are exposed to all kinds of environments. Therefore, we are prone to suffer from their impacts if we don’t shower everyday. Another reason behind it is we all face sweating every now and then. If left to its fate the sweat becomes a breeding ground for harmful bacteria.
3. Cut your Nails Regularly
Shapely nails are very important to the personal hygiene. Therefore it is important that you keep them filed so that there is no room for germs. Germs often find shelter inside the unfiled nails.
4. Wash your Hands
Your hands are exposed to all kinds of activities and objectives everyday. Most of the times we forget about the importance of washing the hands. It is important to wash your hands before having a meal and right after it. Also don’t ever forget to wash your hands after answering the nature’s call.
So these are the 4 Everyday Habits to Maintain Personal Hygiene.
