Personal Hygiene

Why is personal hygiene important?

Dental

Dental hygiene involves more than just having white teeth. A good dental hygiene routine can help prevent issues such as gum disease gum disease and cavities. It can also prevent bad breath.

Hand washing

Regular hand washing is one of the best ways to avoid spreading communicable diseases.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)Trusted Source recommend washing the hands at certain times:

  • before, during, and after preparing food
  • before eating food
  • before and after looking after anyone who is vomiting or has diarrhea
  • before and after treating a cut or wound
  • after going to the bathroom
  • after changing diapers or cleaning up a child who has used the toilet
  • after blowing the nose, coughing, or sneezing
  • after touching garbage or dirty surfaces or objects
  • after handling pets or pet-related items, such as food

Nails

Fingernails may harbor dirt and germs, contributing to the spread of bacteria. It is easier for dirt and germs to collect under longer nails, so keeping them short can help reduce the risk of spreading infections.
