Nine Personal Hygiene Habits to Teach Your Teenager 

If you are the mother of a busy teenager who is more interested in listening to their playlist than looking after their health and skin, you might want to intervene before it is too late. At the age of 12-13, it is time to talk to the kids about how their body is changing and how to look their best without a ton or makeup or hairspray. As a parent, you are likely to have little or no say in their fashion choices, but you can still teach your teenagers how to create a healthy personal hygiene routine that will stick with them for the rest of their lives. Below you can find ten habits you must encourage your teenagers to take on.

  1. Brushing Teeth in the Morning and At Night

Make sure that you check on your teen in the morning before they leave for school, or they can claim to be too busy to complete this two-minute job. Likewise, explain to them that all the bacteria they leave in their mouth and on their teeth will work against the enamel through the night, so they must brush before bed.
