Personal Hygiene Care for Your Child’s Health

Personal Hygiene Care for Your Child’s Health

Every child has a hobby of getting dirty. Playing
around with friends under the heat of the sun or
climbing trees. Whatever activity there is, it is
always proper to maintain personal hygiene care for
the sake of your child’s health. Make your child
realize that being hygienic is as important as making
friends. In addition, being clean can make him feel
more positive about himself.

You need not to wear designer clothes just to look
good. Even your home wear can make you already feel
good just by being hygienic about yourself from top to
toe. You, as a parent, have to explain things clearly
to your child so that as early as possible, he can
learn important tasks to stay hygienic.


Our bodies are surrounded by hair. No matter how thin
or how thick it is, it’s still considered as hair.
Hair follicles produce oil that keeps hair smooth.
Your scalp has sweat glands and dead skin cells. If
combined, sweat, oil and dead cells can turn your hair
greasy and will look dirty not unless you wash it
regularly. To keep your child’s hair clean, you must:

• shampoo regularly (choose a brand that wouldn’t harm
your child’s hair and scalp)

• massage the scalp well to help remove unwanted dead
cells, grease, etc.

• rinse well with clear, clean water

• if your daughter has long hair, apply conditioner to
make it smoother but otherwise, conditioners aren’t
really necessary.

• when combing, use a wide toothed comb especially for
wet hair.


Change your child’s clothes everyday. It is optional
though, to change more than once a day. This only
happens when your child sweats a lot after playing
under the heat of the sun. Immediately change your
child’s clothes to prevent the build-up of
microorganisms that produces body odor.


Advice your child to wash his or her feet well while
taking a bath or right before bedtime. Dry them
thoroughly with clean sheets of towel. If you’re going
swimming and will wash up in public areas, it is also
good that you advice to wash his entire body together
with his feet thoroughly. This will protect him from
acquiring infections or other people’s skin problems
that he came in contact with while swimming in the
public pool.


Spending a lot of time with your child’s feet is as
important as your child’s shoes. A human’s feet is
considered as the area of body where sweat glands have
the largest accumulation. Once your child’s feet
sweats, it goes to the shoes and stick to it, thus,
cultivating bacteria that may cause foot diseases. As
soon as your child comes home from school, let him
take off his shoes. Teach him how to keep his shoes
clean by washing, brushing or polishing it.

Perfume and deodorants

“Smell nice” products can be used to accentuate your
child’s proper grooming. If your child is old enough
to create body odor, it’s time to start buying him
deodorants to keep his armpit from smelling like

Even if he is still young, it is good that you teach
him the different aspects on how to be more conscious
about his body. Being clean can attract a lot of
friends and people. Personal hygiene can definitely
improve your child’s health and other people’s
impression about him.
