3 Hygienic habits you need to have

How to stay clean and healthy

Your thoughts (64)

To stay healthy you need to have good hygiene. This means taking care of yourself to avoid falling ill.

Below are some of habits to help keep you healthy.

Bath regularly
Especially if you have been outside all day. This will keep bacteria and germs off your body. If you can, take your bath twice a day (Morning and night). When bathing wash under your armpit. This is to help deal with smell that comes from sweating in that area.
When on your period it is important you take your bath at least twice a day. Try to take a warm bath, it will relax your muscle especially if you are having cramps. Do not wash your vagina with soap. Water alone is fine.

Brush daily
Make it a habit to brush your teeth at least once a day. But If you can, brush before going to bed at night.
Brushing regularly reduces the amount of bacteria or germs in the mouth. Brushing helps fight the germs that cause tooth decay, gum diseases or holes in our teeth. The fact is the bacteria that cause gum disease can also go straight to the heart and cause a problem. We don’t want that to happen to us.

Wash your hands
Before eating wash your hands. After using the toilet wash your hands. If you return home from a day outside wash your hands. Washing your hands regularly will help prevent the spread of bacteria or even viruses that can make you sick.

Girl, practice these habits and stay healthy.

Hey bosede1! Since you are not ready for a relationship yet, the best thing to do is just to keep being friends until you are sure that you are ready. Do not force a relationship to happen or to work too. We hope this helps

Hey Springster! Yes, it is possible for your breasts to be swollen and painful without being pregnant. This can be as a result of your period coming or even your ovulation. However, if you are having sex, we advise that you talk to a trusted adult and go for a test. We hope this helps

Hey JC! Thanks for the comment. It is perfectly normal for you to feel itchy when you sweat. What you need to do is to bath and change to clean clothes as soon as you can. Always bath at least twice a day and then use deodorants in your armpits or back (depending on where you sweat more). Also, wash your bras/underwear very often and always change into clean clothes. We hope this helps

Thanks big sis for the reply.

Hey Zina! Thanks for the comment. This is a personal decision for you both but what that boy needs now is encouragement and support from you. He says he does not want to date so you should respect his decision. Just be there for him and be a good friend to him too. We hope this helps

Hi big sister am new here. I actually have a problem that I have been experiencing. I am 15 years old and ever since I started seeing my period when I was 12 I have been seeing some whitish vaginal discharge coming out.. At that time I thought it was normal but am starting to think otherwise. I have taken some medication in the past but it seems to always come back. Sometimes the vaginal fluid is colouress but slightly thick other times it's whitish. Please help me with some useful advice

Hey Rubyrubs! Thanks for the comment. Vaginal discharge is not bad neither is it a sickness. It is PERFECTLY NORMAL. There are times in your menstrual cycle that you are meant to be dry but your pant is not always meant to be dry. There are different types of discharge that are normal for girls; White - this is common at the beginning & end of your cycle. Clear & stretchy - this is also called "fertile" discharge and it indicates that you are ovulating. Clear & watery - this does not come at a particular time. It can show up at any time in your cycle. These discharge occur at different times in a girl's menstrual cycle and they do not show at the same time. We hope this helps.

Hey pope! Thanks for the comment. Bath at least 2 times daily, use an antiperspirant or scented powder in your armpits. You should also take a clean cotton handkerchief around to clean up whenever you start to sweat. We hope this helps

I change my boxer short everyday and make sure I wash them before taking my bath in the morning☺ I also make sure I got a handkerchief with me,though I have two handerchiefs, one for my face and one for other parts of my body. I did it to avoid bacteria attack or germs☺ I don't shake hands always because most people get their hands infected and they don't care😎

I love this. But, my question is most of the time one gets tired whenever one returns from work and after taking dinner, straight to bed. Does it have any implications?
