Personal Hygiene Tips For Skin, Hair
 
1. Wash your hair regularly. Don’t forget to clean them, especially after swimming and exercise.

3. Detox your body, by consuming water which is important to keep your skin hydrated. Eat foods that naturally detox your skin.
 
4. Exfoliate your face and lips regularly and keep a lip balm or lip conditioner on you all the time to prevent drying ou of your lips.
 
5. Acne breakouts are very common during summers. If you face frequent acne breakouts, use a good anti-acne face wash, recommended by your trusted dermatologist only for cleansing.

7. Keep a good toner handy and use it post cleansing your face to remove excess oil from your face. This is especially important during summers, when our skin tends to be very oily.
