Personal Hygiene

We don’t have to break our banks in order to look well groomed. First impressions last forever – and our physical appearance is usually 80% of the first impression. A little effort goes a long way. Maintaining basic hygiene is also important for medical reasons in a hot and humid country like Bangladesh. Things we tend to ignore can be very off putting. Half the battle is won if we make sure our nails are filed, clothes are ironed, shoes are clean and polished, and breath smells fresh. We all know these things, but a little reminder does not hurt!

The Department of Health in Bangladesh has enlisted seven important verticals of personal health which include:

  • Washing your body at least once a day
  • Brushing your teeth at least once a day
  • Washing your hair with soap/shampoo once a week
  • Washing your hands with a soap after visiting the washroom
  • Washing your hands before and after eating food
  • Covering your mouth with your hand while sneezing, coughing or yawning
  • Drying wash clothes in the sun to kill germs and get rid of the odour

This is a very basic list we should follow in order to look presentable and combat bacterial and fungal infection caused by dirt and perspiration. Let’s promise to stick to the basics and watch how your personal hygiene boosts your confidence!
