I am back again with some personal hygiene tips that I feel are necessary to re-iterate though you may have heard them before. If you haven’t, try to consider them and apply them to your daily routine. It is important to do certain things right that’ll pay off in the long run, as we know, the easy way is not always the best way. Remember, your habit becomes your lifestyle so pick good habits. Here we go;

Vagina Hygiene

  • Get screened for STI’s; you can learn more about them on my BellaNaija Article here

Skin Hygiene 

  • Wash your feet; it smells if you don’t
  • Exfoliate your skin, lemon, honey and sugar are excellent natural and cheap exfoliants
  • Use shaving cream and don’t shave close to avoid ingrown hair

Oral Hygiene

  • Floss every day; your gums will thank you
  • Brush twice a day; your 50-year-old self will thank you when you still have your teeth
  • Visit your dentist at least once a year; you’d be surprised how much you needed the visit
  • Brush your tongue; it inhabits a surprising amount of germs that cause mouth odour


  • Wash your towels and beddings once a week
  • Clean your earrings
  • Baby wipes are great for removing makeup and down below after a poop (seriously) wipe from front to back
  • Use disinfectant to clean your phone screen and workspaces
