During the transition from preteen to teen years, the body begins to change
When it comes to teen hygiene here’s a rundown:
Habits Teens Must Embrace:
1. Taking Baths
Most preteens don’t bathe twice daily, and they don’t need to.
Once puberty hits, daily showering becomes essential.
I recommend that they use a mild soap and concentrate on the face, hands, feet, fingernails, underarms, groin and buttocks.
At around age 10, it makes sense for a teen to start washing his or her face twice a day.
Lots of kids don’t have any pimple problems at that age, but getting in the habit early is smart.
Males should wash their hair daily.
Females should have calendar days for
regular washing of their hair
4.Using deodorant or antiperspirant.
Every pre teen has always had plenty of working sweat glands.
When puberty hits, the glands become more active and the chemical composition of the sweat changes, causing it to smell stronger.
So before or just when it begins to get noticed, using deodorant or an antiperspirant should become part of daily teen hygiene.
I will be sharing subsequently on further steps to take when it comes to teens’ health,do keep tabs!
I love teens, I love teens health!
