Personal hygiene is a critical element to protect ourselves from catching viruses and infections. The primary step of personal hygiene begins with frequent hand washing. Hand washing offers many health benefits to the skin and body. We use our hands to perform almost every task of our daily life, from eating, working to cleaning. Our hands are more exposed to catch influenza viruses present on various surfaces around our workplaces, public areas, and home. Handwashing can prevent the spread of influenza viruses right away and protect us from infections and diseases. Moreover, the health benefits of handwashing is not only limited to your personal hygiene. It keeps the environment clean and also saves others from germs and infections. Although, it is essential to keep your hands clean throughout the day, still you must maintain a routine to wash your hands in the following critical times:
- Before touching or eating food
- After eating the food
- After you have used toilet
- When you have sneezed or coughed into your hands
- After touching garbage
- After a prolonged use of certain objects exposed to harbor bacteria
- After you have visited public places
The simple act of handwashing can protect us from several virus-related diseases, including diarrhea, respiratory infections, corona, and influenza viruses. However, frequent handwashing can also lead to dryness, sensitivity, and skin damage. It is equally important to take care of your skin's health, along with maintaining good personal hygiene.

Tea tree essential is an incredible essential oil that is widely used for a variety of beauty care purposes. It is derived from Melaleuca alternifolia tree, which originated from the coastal regions of Australia. Native Australians had been using tea tree plants for medicinal and healing purposes for thousands of years. They would use the crushed leaves of tea tree plants for the preparation of antiseptic medicines and also inhaled their scent to soothe cold and cough symptoms. However, the health-boosting benefits of tea tree plants were not exploited for commercial purposes until the eighteenth century. In recent decades, tea tree essential oil is an active ingredient in many shampoos, lotions, personal hygiene products, and air-fresheners. It exhibits cleansing, purifying, and clarifying properties that make it soothing for a number of skin conditions.
In its chemical composition, tea tree essential oil contains many health-boosting natural compounds. It contains a-pinene, p-cymene, cineole, limonene, terpinene, linalool, and myrcene compounds.

They had named aloe vera plant as 'the Plant of Eternity and' the Plant of Immortality.' They would use aloe vera juice to address topical skincare concerns, soothe sunburns, and to magnify beauty. Because of its cleansing and purifying properties, aloe vera gel was a part of their regular cosmetic applications. They even used aloe vera juice in the embalming practices to prevent the body from decomposing.
