Health and Hygiene
Health and hygiene form an integral part of your life. If you don’t lead a hygienic life, you cannot expect to be healthy. Both complement each other. In order to look your best daily, it is important that you address needs of your personal hygiene.

Bathing twice a day is a good way of keeping your body free of dirt, grime and dust particles which you collect throughout the day. It is important to bathe after you return home after a strenuous day. This helps you to release your stress and relax. Similarly, before stirring out of your house in the morning, it is important to bathe as it will leave you fresh throughout the day. It is not only for maintaining your health & hygiene but you are able to live up to the hectic schedule of the day.
Your hair length should be just right for you to maintain it properly. If you have long hair and you are not being able to manage it, cut off the tresses to get a manageable and a tidy look. The hairstyle you choose should be done keeping in mind how much you can care for the same.
Dandruff is a common problem, which can be oily or dry. It results due to lack of health & hygiene of your hair. Make sure you wash your hair regularly. It is relaxing too. Use a mild or a strong shampoo depending on the type of your hair- oily or dry.
