Women are often inundated with advice about what they should do to maintain their health. One of the most common pieces of advice is that women should pay more attention to certain areas of their body, such as breast self-exams or monthly visits to the gyno. But which parts of your body should you be paying extra attention to? There are many factors that contribute to how healthy a person’s body will be on any given day, and it can often feel like there is not enough time in the day for all the tasks we have already committed ourselves to. So which areas should you focus on first? 

It’s important to take care of yourself, your body will thank you for it. Showering every day and keeping oneself clean may make one believe that all they need is regular hygiene but different areas of the body require special attention so check in with a doctor or dermatologist if necessary!

Here are areas of the body you should pay more attention to:


Did you know that the skin is the body’s largest organ and is your first line of defense against external dangers? So, whether you’re relaxing on the beach or working, your skin is always battling infections, UV rays from the sun, pollution, grime, and a variety of other potentially harmful chemicals. 

It’s also the first organ to be affected by stress. So, be sure to pay attention to areas of your skin that are prone to irritation or inflammation because these areas may need extra TLC later on down the road!

There are a number of ways to protect yourself from dangerous UV radiation, including wearing sunscreen and drinking lots of water. You can also avoid irritants that may cause skin problems by reading labels carefully before applying any chemicals or products to your skin.


Your feet are in your shoes for the bulk of the day, bearing your weight all day, and are frequently subjected to moisture, tension, and shoe bites. Stinky feet, itching, and infections can result from sweat and dampness. To avoid smelly feet, wear comfortable yet breathable shoes once a week to keep them clean, scrub them well once a week, and exfoliate them every now and then.


Nails are often neglected, which is a shame because they have a lot to do with your general well-being. They are, nevertheless, quite vital. Bacteria and other germs may hide in the tips of your fingers and enter your body because they create fissures there. Even neatly kept nails might include germs, so keep them clean and maintained at all times. Cleaning longer nails more thoroughly and frequently is recommended if you have them.


Your eyes, without a doubt, are the most sensitive part of your face. They must deal with an endless barrage of dust, smog, screen radiation, and other factors that cause eye strain. Taking care of your eyes is thus a necessary aspect of personal grooming.

Folds Of Skin

Areas, where skin scrapes against the skin and perspires, can become unpleasant if not properly cared for. The inner thighs, armpits, and under breasts are examples of this. Pay particular care to these regions while washing them, use a high-quality soap, and keep them clean and dry throughout the day to minimize sweat accumulation and fungal infections.


Hair may not be as important to your physical health as it is to your appearance and personality, but it is an important part of your beauty, and having nice hair can boost your self-esteem and confidence. They are also a reflection of your internal health; dull, damaged, or falling hair might sometimes be a sign of illness.

To maintain your hair, use a good shampoo. Always read the labels. Organic shampoo is best. Avoid over-styling and heat treatments, which can harm hair severely, and consume a protein-rich diet to keep your hair looking lovely and strong.


Lips have a thinner than normal skin covering. Melamine is absent from the lips, just like other parts of the skin. Lips, like the rest of the skin, require additional care and attention. Never bite your lips nor go to sleep with lipstick on your pucker. Make sure you have a natural lip balm on hand apply it on your lips as needed.


Excessive exposure to loud noises, such as those from a concert or club, can induce hearing loss. Reduce the amount of time you spend listening to music through headphones. To avoid infections and itching, keep your ears clean and dry as well.

Genital Areas

It’s important to take care of your intimate regions because they are also susceptible to a lot of moisture. This can lead not only to itching but also rashes and fungal infections if you don’t moisturize them properly and keep them dry!

At the end of the day, you should be paying attention to your body. It is important to take care of yourself so that you are at your best. If this sounds like something you need help with, don’t hesitate to give us a call today!
