Hygiene?

Recommended Posts

@theone: It can be also a cultural thing. And individual. Obviously, I'm talking from the perspective of twenty-something Finnish woman, so I wouldn't know anything about people in other countries. But I worked at a nursing home last summer, and there the people only got to shower once a week, and seemed either happy with it, resigned to it or completely indifferent about it (most of them did suffer from different stages of dementia, so...)

Wow... interesting speak about different countries' hygiene. I shower once a day, and the max I can go without showering is 2 days. I have to use lots of shampoo and conditioner whenever I shower because my hair is so long. I don't shower/wash as much in winter because my hands are prone to cracking (the skin) and it gets painful and bloody. I guess all that means is that in winter, I don't wash my hands as often as I should. I don't like using special soap on my face, because it isn't great, and I can't use it on my eyes, and I don't want to get eye soap, so I just rinse my face really, really well.

In the morning, I brush my teeth right away cuz dirty teeth are just . . . *shudder*

 

For some reason I cannot stand showers and I only take them when my parents hunt me down and force me to.

 

I try to change my clothes twice a day and always wash my hands after I sneeze, cough or blow my nose.

Quite hygienic thing,to wash your hands like that Indra,but with one consequence.Your hands might get cracked.\ at one point.Mine got that way,but after a while,my skin got used to it,and now the hand skin is softer that usual.I usually wash my hands after I do something,even if I just take a pen in the hands for two seconds.And after I use the task bar,I tend to wash my hands in the end,always.

Hmm.. I shower in the night just before sleeping as I have a hectic morning.. Which of course ends up being a lo~ong and luxurious bath.. I shampoo every alternate day like my hair specialist suggested. And of course I use Dove as thats the only thing that goes well with me. Also, I brush twice a day and floss every morning. This in winter season.

 

Summer is much the same except that I bathe twice a day. Sometimes even three times ^^; Its pretty hot and humid out here in the summer (India T^T)

@Mae, I never thought about it (the bidet) before but now that you mentioned it I must agree, once again. Only the older public bathrooms don't have it in every stall but many newer ones have their own water pipes so it's made possible in every stall. I've seen this mostly in restaurants' bathrooms.

 

Even though it's made easy to take care of your personal hygiene (at least here in Finland) according to some polls every second person (men and women) don't wash their hands after using the toilet.

 

For me it's always been obvious to wash hands and at school and at work we also use hand desinfection. I've thought it's more like a "guy thing" but apparently women do this, too. What do you think of this or have you ever seen anyone not washing hands after?

@Leelah: No, and I hope I never do. I always thought that guys did the "Oh, I don't wash my hands" thing too, but that's interesting.

 

I really hate using hand sanitizers, because they've got a high alcohol content. They burn my hands, and it makes 'em smell funny. Ewww...

 

Okay, here's a little fun fact:

A public desk (like a secretary's desk) has as many germs on it as a public toilet. Gross... So I guess I should start washing my hands even after I come home from school, because we have a rotary system, which = public desks. Bleh.

@theone

 

Lol I won't argue with that.. When I was a kid my hair so perfectly straight but now its all frizzy and had all possible hair problems.. That's why the hair specialist comes into the picture xD

@klaus: My hands soft? No way, they're about as rough as sandpaper. That's the result of building things in my free time.

 

But you could say that I overdo things like that. I brush my teeth for five minutes instead of two, and I have ridiculously clean, white teeth because of it.

@Leelah: Women, too? Eww. I've never come across this.

 

When were these polls conducted? Because I heard that many cleaners reported an increase in the usage of soap in mens' rooms after the whole swine flu thing (when there was this whole public awareness campaign for washing your hands). XD

@theone: I'm not sure whether your last post was in response to mine, but the campaign I was referring to was not about a particular brand (and I don't remember any brand names being mentioned), it was about stopping influenza (it didn't mention swine flu, but I don't remember anything of the sort before swine flu, so...)

One thing which I know is that we must keep ourselves clean.And there are many ways of doing this.Which are yours,since mine are showers and using high-quality cleaning products,from Avon,or Dove,it depends.What combination do you use?Baths and same,products?Or weekly sauna and other stuff?

@Mae, it was before the swine flu (umm, what flu?!) so it might have got better after it.

 

I actually didn't even remember this flu at all even though it was to kill most of the population on Earth (yeah, like it happened?) And there was supposed to be two waves of it this year but I never heard of it.. weird :lol: I'm still bitter because I was forced to take the injection because I'm going to be a physiotherapist this December.

@klaus: just having regular bath and clean out my body. I'm not used to go to salons or spas, so here i am. I used some random soap to wash hands, and shower creams, sunsilk shampoos, and etc. Not quite high in quality, but it feels good on me.

-hygiene is important to us, especially for our health. When we're not being clean, we could get some viruses that will cause you troubles.

@klaus: well, i'd try to.

Nail cuts: i'm actually cut mine very regulary. I always keep them short and clean. I do that because i don't like to write and find out that your nails are piercing your fingers each other. They also told me that nails contain some parasites, too

@klaus: hmmm, but even so, most of my friends have their nails pointed out, they're so long! They said that having long nails is a good thing, though by helping them scratch their back, and dig their food off. Interesting, but i already used to have my nails all cut neatly.

 

nails and hygiene when eating: what do you think if that's matter? I mean, don't we already have our spoons and forks? Plus chopsticks. Maybe we could use them, but we also usually don't use spoons for eating your snacks, huh?
