Personal hygiene: Grooming from head to toe

Personal hygiene: Grooming from head to toe

Taking a shower, shaving in the morning, brushing your teeth or trimming the nails are cleaning rituals in which we invest our time. And also a good deal of money that we spend on personal care products. Personal hygiene is a crucial aspect in terms of cleanliness. It particularly serves an end in itself in the social setting, for it is not just the clothes that hold sway over the first impression that the others have of us, but personal hygiene influences our appearance as well, and therefore the effect on others. It is simultaneously conducive to our health and protects us against illnesses. In this way, it fulfils several functions alike and can be classified into diverse categories ranging from head to toe.


What does personal hygiene mean?

When we talk about personal hygiene, we refer to the cleansing of skin, teeth and skin appendages, including toenails and fingernails as well as hair. Skincare begins with the shower and the application of shower and washing gels or oils and ends with the moisturising of the body and face after the shower. Dental care refers to all of oral hygiene, which, along with brushing the teeth, also includes the use of dental floss and mouthwash. Nail care, on the contrary, is simply achieved by cutting and filing the nails. This is supplemented in the form of foot and hand creams as well as decorative cosmetics, if it comes to painting nails. The use of deodorants and other fragrances affecting body odour and makeup is also a part of personal hygiene. And the removal of body hair or the trimming of beard hair is a form of personal hygiene as well, just like washing the hair and scalp as well as cutting and colouring one’s hair is.


Increasing number of superbly designed products for body care

Increasing number of superbly designed products for body care

Apart from fast-moving consumer goods, well-designed products that make care treatment in the field of body care more effective are especially popular. It is about precision and saving time. By virtue of the annually rising investments in the field of beauty care, companies feel called upon to develop new products constantly, which can impress with their design and which can elicit an optimal experience upon use. Starting from sonic electric toothbrushes for optimised dental cleaning, to electrically operated safety and electric razors with a special blade protection for hair removal for men as well as the epilator and laser devices for hair removal for women right up to massage devices for the face and body for better circulation. The variety is immense, and it is becoming increasingly difficult to decide upon a product. Too many grooming products are counterproductive anyway, say the experts. In their opinion, the daily shower is far too much already. This is why it is all the more important to concentrate on the most essential products for daily personal hygiene.

It is for this reason that we introduce to you a few design products for the most essential areas of personal hygiene below.
