You may think hygiene is common sense, but many people neglect this important step. Bathing daily is a must, particularly during your menstrual periods. Make sure to pay special attention to your underarms, bottom and feet. If a person looks good, but smells like a trash bin, most people won't want to be around her for long.
Brushing your teeth twice daily and flossing is also necessary to smell fresh and to maintain good oral health. Carry mints or gum in your purse or pocket for those times when you have eaten garlic or particularly strong-smelling foods such as onions.
Hygiene is important now and for the rest of your life. It doesn't matter if you are decked out in the most stylish clothes; if you have body odor, you may be avoided.
