Getting at least 8 hours a sleep for someone is vital. Sleep helps restore your body inside and out so don’t skimp on it!

Look after your teeth and gums
Get a new brush every three months and brush your teeth after meals. Floss too, for maximum oral health. If your lips are dry, use chapstick, being careful to choose one with beeswax or shea/coconut butter.
Wash your hands
Every time you think you might need to, wash them. It can prevent bad germs, also be sure to avoid touching your face or you will get pimples.
If you are on your period keep in mind you should change your tampon/pad every couple of hours to avoid leaking and smelling. If you need help remembering, put an alert on your phone.
Do not smoke

You can get medical help if you want to quit or try by yourself, smoking less and less. Stay away from other drugs too non-prescribed medication, alcohol, excessive caffeine and others. Even if someone tells you that they’re not bad for you, they sure can’t do any good.
Drink plenty of water
Keep some water with you at all times and drink to keep healthy. Water is good to every part of you and most people don’t drink enough.
Take a shower or bath
Use shower gel or soap of any smell to wash yourself e.g. strawberry soap, chocolate soap, orange soap. Be sure to wash everywhere with your hands or a washcloth or a shower sponge.
Wash your hair
Choose a shampoo and conditioner combo that you like and that suits your hair type get advice from others if you are unsure. When washing your hair, massage it for a couple of minutes, then rinse well so that the soap doesn’t get stuck in your hair and harden. Be sure to get in the scalp. If you have dandruff, use a dandruff-fighting shampoo. Avoid heat styling tools or, if you must, put heat protector in your hair.
Put body lotion on
Put it everywhere after you bathe, to moisturize. Avoid your face, that gets done later.
Wash your face
Wash your face at least twice a day and consider providing a facial routine for yourself. Search for products that suit your skin type and consider getting help from someone when choosing a face wash. Use cold or warm water to wash the product off and apply a facial moisturizer adequate to your needs. If you have oily skin, you still need to moisturize, only with a lighter formula. If you have eczema, then make to sure to use a eczema fighting face wash if possible.
Remove body hair, if you want to
If you have any unwanted body hair, get rid of it in any way you prefer. Shaving is a cheaper and easier option, but be careful not to cut yourself. Waxing or sugaring make sure you stay hairless longer. Remember: never shave the unwanted hair on your face!
