    Personal hygiene is so important not only not to be offensive to others, but to feel good about oneself. Who wants to be with a dirty smelly person? Another dirty smelly person...

    I believe everyone should feel clean

    and be clean. I love being squeaky clean even if my showers are a process. Also, most importantly aside of being "clean" is your skin routine. Did you know an oily face can still be dry? If you didn't then you might not be taking are of your skin very well. Instagram #PICRYRY

    Hour Shower

    A hour shower would be so nice! I just want to scrub all the dirt away. Do a nice oatmeal/avocado facial and just relax.

    When i smell bad i feel bad.

    When i smell another person it's just so freaking upsetting. Like how hard is it to bathe? Just wash. There's no reason for someone who's able to clean themselves to smell like the inside of an ***. That's mean but i'm just being honest. When i was a little bit younger i can...

    I would think some thing should be self evident

    like personal hygiene. I shouldn't have to tell a person not to stick a hot poker in their eye or that being clean is healthy. Geez

    This is 2014 and still in America

    and in other countries personal hygiene is not taken seriously. People take a shower and brush your teeth before leaving home, hotel, or other places.

    Take a shower, smelling

    wherever you go won't be good. It affects other people.. Plus, you're more likely to feel better about yourself if you have good hygiene.
