ToiletSeva’s easy guide to everyday personal hygiene for teenagers

There are several reasons why it's essential for teenagers to take special care of their everyday hygiene. During puberty, teenagers experience a lot of physical changes, such as increased sweating and oil production, which can lead to acne and body odor. Proper personal hygiene practices, such as regular bathing and grooming, can help prevent these issues.

ToiletSeva App understands that the importance of toilet hygiene during this time is of utmost importance and is therefore on the journey, to make proper public toilet hygiene a more achievable task. With the ToiletSeva app, you can now have the convenience of locating all the nearest toilets accessible to you, at a touch of a button! With added options for viewing the ratings and reviews of past users, the ToiletSeva app helps empower teenagers and young adults to make the best choices for maintaining their everyday hygiene.

It's important to remember that good personal hygiene is a lifelong habit, and the earlier it's developed the better!

Below are a few simple tips for everyday hygiene that every teenager should include in their daily routine:

Skin Care:

Since teenagers are more prone to acne and breakouts, having a thorough skincare regime can be quite important. Here are a few simple steps one could inculcate:

  • Cleanse the skin twice a day with a mild, non-irritating cleanser, followed by a non-greasy moisturizer. This will help to remove dirt, oil, and makeup that can clog pores and lead to acne.
  • Avoid touching the face with dirty hands. This can transfer bacteria and oil to the face, which can lead to breakouts.
  • Avoid picking or squeezing pimples. This can lead to scarring and can spread bacteria to other areas of the face.

Fun Fact: Every 28 days, your skin renews itself by getting rid of old skin cells and replacing them with fresh ones. To maintain this process, you must safeguard your skin and practice excellent skin care practices!

Oral hygiene tips:

  • Brush teeth twice a day with fluoride toothpaste: Brush for two minutes each time, using a soft-bristled brush and make sure to follow that up with flossing.

    Fun Fact: Did you know that we are not meant to rinse the toothpaste after brushing? The fluoride residue in the toothpaste is meant to create a protective layer over your teeth protecting them from cavities.

  • Most teenagers at this time tend to get their braces, during which it is quite important to follow rigorous and thorough oral care. As one tends to be more vulnerable to cavities and gum disease during this period, maintaining good oral hygiene in accordance with your orthodontist is of utmost importance.

By following these oral hygiene tips, teenagers can help maintain a healthy mouth, prevent tooth decay and gum disease and ensure a healthy smile.

Menstrual Hygiene tips for young girls:

In order to maintain everyday hygiene during menstruation make sure to

  • Wash your hands before and after dealing with menstrual products.
  • Make sure to bathe at least once a day and keep the vaginal area clean with warm water and mild soap.
  • Change pads, tampons, menstrual cups, or whatever products you are using, regularly, at least every 4-8 hours, or more often if needed.
  • Wear breathable underwear and clothing to help keep the area dry.
  • Keep a backup of menstrual products with you in case of unexpected bleeding.

Fact: According to a survey, a whopping 74.6% of women find it uncomfortable to change their sanitary pads in a public restroom due to the poor state of public toilet hygiene, and 88.3% think that dirty toilets may be the cause of recurring urinary tract infections.

The ToiletSeva app empathizes with the importance of toilet hygiene in India, or lack thereof. Hence we are on a mission to help young girls during this crucial time of the month to make sure they have access to clean hygienic toilets, especially during emergencies. The app lets you browse through the amenities provided by the washroom, in order to make sure it is accommodating for your menstrual personal hygiene needs, thereby making long travels more convenient during that time of the month.

Inculcating the Importance of toilet hygiene:

Improper toilet hygiene can make us vulnerable to a whole new host of bacteria thereby affecting our health and making us susceptible to diseases. For this, proper toilet hygiene habits should be inculcated from a young age.

To achieve good toilet personal hygiene, teenagers can:

  • Wash their hands thoroughly with soap and warm water before and after using the toilet.
  • Use a separate towel or washcloth for drying their hands and body.
  • Avoid bringing belongings such as your phone into the washroom, as these tend to accumulate a lot of bacteria over time.
  • Close the lid of the toilet before flushing it to avoid the dispersion of germs and bacteria into the air.

    Fun Gross Fact: Flushing the toilet with the lid open can cause germs to spread as far as 6 feet!

  • Properly dispose of used hygiene products such as sanitary napkins and tampons.

With the ToiletSeva app, it is now easier than ever for teenagers to maintain good public toilet hygiene. Due to the helpful option to preview the list of amenities available beforehand, it can be quite convenient to make sure whether essential amenities like soap, toilet paper, dustbins, etc, would or would not be available within an available washroom.
