How to Maintain Basic Hygiene While Traveling

alt While traveling for work or on a holiday, you do not want any health issues to hamper your trip.

In order to ensure a smooth, fun filled trip there are a few basic hygiene tips that travelers must follow.

1. Toilets

Choosing the right washrooms while you’re on a trip is one of the most crucial choices you would be making. Urinals are the easiest point of contact for any kind of infection. Hence finding a clean and dry washroom should be your primary concern.

2. Tissue and Toilet Paper

Equip yourself with ample tissues and toilet paper if you’re especially visiting rural areas that might not have such facilities. Wash your hands thoroughly with soap and clean your hands immediately after you’ve used a washroom to avoid getting infected.

3. Sanitizer

One of the must-haves on any work or leisure trip is a bottle of sanitizer. Sanitizing your hands after you’ve used a washroom or finished a meal at a restaurant is of utmost importance. It gets rid of the germs that might cause infections and, hence, should be on top priority.

4. Food

Always ensure that you consume meals that are cooked well, not too oily and contain fresh produce. Sometimes you tend to get carried away with the variety of local food available and want to try everything ignoring the hygiene aspects of it.

5. Drinking Water

The water you drink can cause major infection, especially during the monsoons, since contamination is the highest during this season. Hence, drinking bottled water is your safest bet to avoid the contraction of any disease.

6. Maintain Cleanliness

Being clean and tidy with respect to your clothes is very essential. Taking a shower at least twice a day and wearing clothes appropriate to the weather can help you maintain good hygiene. Using clean towels and napkins while you’re on the go also contributes to your hygiene level.

7. Body Odour

Heat, sweat, humidity can lead to an unpleasant body odour that can cause embarrassment. Use your daily roll-on stick and also spray a strong deodorant to stay away from that stink.

8. Antiseptic Liquids

Your handbag must include an antiseptic liquid, a mosquito repellant, and moisturizer especially if you’re camping or living in a remote area where these items wouldn’t be available in case you need it.

Maintaining personal hygiene is of utmost importance while you’re on a holiday for work or otherwise. It helps you to combat infections and enjoy your vacation the way you wish to.
