Personal hygiene is an important step in a person's daily routine. There are so many products out there it can be overwhelming to figure out which ones are the best for your needs. Here are six of the best products to use to improve your hygiene.
1. Sensitivity Toothpaste
People's teeth are exposed to all kinds of acids, sugars and potential irritants. Because of this, many people will experience tooth sensitivity in their lifetimes. When this occurs, people want to find the best toothpaste for sensitive teeth they can.
Toothpaste formulated for sensitive teeth is able to ease some of the discomfort or pain people experience when they eat or drink hot or cold things or when they floss and brush. Good sensitivity toothpaste avoids whitening products that can weaken teeth.
2. A Shower Scrubber
A shower scrubber is a great way to both decrease your use of disposable hygiene products and improve your hygiene. Most shower scrubbers come in the form of plastic, fiber or silicone bristles. You use it in the same way you would a loofah, but unlike a loofah, these brushes can usually be cleaned and don't need to be replaced as regularly.
Loofahs tend to retain moisture and collect bacteria and dirt more easily than brushes and can't be cleaned, so they need to be replaced monthly at most.
3. Dry Shampoo
The healthiest thing you can do for your hair is to not wash it every single day. However, many people feel that their hair begins to look too oily the longer they go without washing it. A good in-between protection for your hair to keep it from looking greasy is to invest in a good dry shampoo.
Dry shampoos are applied to the scalp as a spray or powder and absorb the excess oil there so your hair isn't weighed down by grease between washes. It's also a useful product to pack when you're traveling.
4. Hand Sanitizer
Hand sanitizer is a useful product to have when you're on the go. You can pick up germs on your hands from most surfaces, and in some places it can be difficult or impossible to get to a bathroom with proper sinks and soap, so having hand sanitizer with you can be advantageous.
You can use hand sanitizer as often as you think you need to, but certain formulas can dry out your skin due to the high alcohol content necessary for hand sanitizer to work properly. You can look for hand sanitizers that are formulated with various moisturizing agents, such as glycerin and natural oils, to protect your skin.
5. A Suitable Facial Cleanser
Skincare is a booming industry with many products available for all kinds of different skin types and needs. Facial cleansers should be used by almost everyone. These cleansers differ from shampoos and body soaps in that they're formulated for a wider array of needs, including sensitive, oily, normal and combination skin, rosacea, acne and makeup removal.
There are many different types of facial cleansers to choose from including balms, foaming cleansers, powders and clay cleansers.
6. Nail Clippers And Files
While nail art is incredibly popular, not everyone thinks to take care of their nails as well as they do other parts of their bodies. You should invest in high-quality clippers for your fingernails and toenails, as well as nail files.
Learn the best method for clipping your nails. For example, you should always cut your toenails in a straight line to mitigate the risk of ingrown toenails. Carefully clip any hangnails you notice but avoid clipping your cuticles, as that can increase your risk of infection. After clipping, you should file your nails so they're not jagged or uneven.
Determining the types of products and the brands that work best for your body and face may take some trial and error. You may find that some products irritate your skin or that they simply don't work for you.
