Beautiful Tips for Facial Hygiene
To make cream of roses
Take one pound of oil of sweet almonds, one ounce of spermaceti, one ounce of white wax, one pint of rose water, and two drachms of Malta rose or nerolet essence. Put the oil, spermaceti, and wax, into a well-glazed pipkin, over a clear fire, and when melted, pour in the rose water by degrees, and keep heating, till the compound becomes like pomatum. Now add the essence, and then put the cream into small pots or jars, which must be well covered with pieces of bladder, and soft skin leather.
Common almond paste
To make this paste, take six pounds of fresh al mounds, which blanch and beat in a stone mortar, with a sufficient quantity of rose water. Now add a pound of finely drained honey, and mix the whole well together. This paste, which is exceedingly good for the hands, is to be put into small pots for sale. If this paste gets dry, rub it up on a marble slab with rose water. To prevent this dryness, put about half a teaspoonful of this water on the top of each pot, before tying up.
Sweat and Body Odor
Perspiration, or sweat, comes from sweat glands that you've always had in your body. But thanks to puberty, these glands not only become more active than before, they also begin to secrete different chemicals into the sweat that has a stronger smelling odor. You might notice this odor under your arms in your armpits. Your feet and genitals might also have new smells.
Body hair in new places is something you can count on - again; it's hormones in action. You may want to start shaving some places where body hair grows, but whether you do is up to you. Some guys who grow facial hair like to let it develop into a mustache and beard. Some girls may decide to leave the hair on their legs and under their arms as is. It's all up to you and what you feel comfortable with.
Brush your tongue
After brushing your teeth and gums 2-3 times daily, rinse out your mouth and spit. With the remaining toothpaste in your mouth and brush, brush your tongue. Place brush on the back of your tongue and scrape forward. "Scrape" as much of your tongue as you can to significantly reduce, but maybe not eliminate, bad breath. If you have morning breath, do this prior to bed. If this doesn't help, there might be other undiagnosed problems. Do this even if you think your breath doesn't smell as prevention. Flossing also reduces oral bacteria and removes solid food particles to freshen breath. Research the newly discovered link between oral plaque buildup and clogged arteries.
Wash your hands after using the bathroom
Yes, you might think, "My genitals are clean so I don't have to wash my hands." Wash your hands anyway. If you want others to wash their hands after toileting, then you should wash yours. Some people do not even wash after defecating. This spreads foul germs on door handles and elsewhere.
Whenever possible, wash your hands and use a towel to dry them- use the towel to open the door to avoid more germs. Don't set your purse on the floor or counter in a public restroom- you'll transport germs around with you all day! Use a clean piece of toilet paper to flush, as you don't know what was on the last person's hand!
