As it turns out, we’ve been cleaning our body parts the wrong way. We have found methods to clean parts of your body the right way.
Using your nails or any other pointy thing to clean out your ear wax is an absolute no-no. Instead, apply a few drops of baby oil or glycerin to soften the wax. After 1-2 days, gently pour in warm water using an eyedropper or rubber bulb syringe. Turn your head to the other side to let the water out. Wipe it with a towel and repeat the process as necessary. You can also use a swab to clean the outer area of your ear.
Your belly button is supposed to be cleaned once a week and in a specific manner. Dip a cotton swab in some rubbing alcohol and use it to clean the insides. Repeat until the swab comes out clean. Follow up with a fresh swab to get rid of the rubbing alcohol. Avoid using body lotion.
Scalp buildup can be caused by dead cells or even excess use of hair products. To clean it, rinse your hair completely before using shampoo. Then, mix water in with your shampoo and apply it to your scalp area. If you use conditioner, put it on the ends of the hair only.
Your tongue needs to be cleaned just as often as your teeth. Place a scraper at the back of your tongue and slowly bring it forward with a little pressure. If you feel like gagging, avoid it by adjusting the placement of the tongue scrapper as often as needed.
Foaming soaps and washes actually make your skin dry, so avoid them. Use a mild cleanser along with lukewarm water to wash your face. Let it sit on the face for 60-90 seconds before washing it off.
