Personal Hygiene in your nation

Postby Krjder » Tue Dec 31, 2013 9:50 am

So, as the thread name states, personal hygiene in your nation? Do your people smell of poo or shampoo.? Do they shave or are they gorillas? Please tell.

As for my beloved Krïdans they take hygiene very seriously. All genders shave their legs, arms, armpits, pubes, backs and chests. Krïdans brush their teeth extensively to leave pearl white teeth. Showers are taken every morning and a bath every night. Krïdans keep the soles of their feet pink and tender, including men/boys. They cut and file their nails. Much moisturiser is applied to all parts of the body.

Our nation is a nation of hygiene lovers, they shave and shower regularly and appreciate dressing up or being smart when the time is called for. However on backwoods' camps with our countries scout organisation, we allow dirtiness as it is good for the soul.

As our king is the Chief Scout and is scouting mad!!!

Particular social hygiene norms in Cottesmore include shaving for both genders (though the moustache is coming back into fashion for men lately), daily showers, clean teeth (this also comes as a result of the National Dental Service) and clean, short hair. Most people follow these norms, others not.

Shaving? What are we pansies! We are real men!

Atelians dont shave only trim their hair and facial hair. They trim and clean their nails, and they clean their teeth after every meal, and take baths every Saturday.

It varies. People in the cities and southern/western regions tend to be considerably cleaner than those in the sparsely populated north.

One shower or bath per day using shower gel, brush teeth twice, copious amounts of water applied to face at regular intervals and deodrant to everywhere else.
Men often have facial hair, mainly moustaches. But most men have short cut hair.

Thats how things are in Ragnarum. Most people go by that.

For men the only thing allowed to be shaved completely here are the pubes. You can trim your facial hair and armpit hair though.
Men's hair must always be short. It's a culture thing but the gov enforces this so the population masses are happy with this.

Women are allowed to shave as much as they want, except for their hair, there is a limit on how short it can be.

We bathe/shower everyday but you can't bathe/shower more than 3 times a day, even thought we don't go checking and the law doesn't care about it if you bathe/shower 4 times a day once for example. All our water is treated, clean and cheap and we don't want our people to go wasting it unnecessarily.

The government distributes cheap soap for free and there are public showers that are free too so even if you are a hobo you can be clean.
Basic and cheap toothpaste & toothbrush is also free.

P.S.: Things are free but you can't take like 300 for yourself.

In Ekoridge hygine is important, but is still only a minor part of everyday life. Baths or showers are usually once daily, or sometimes twice daily in the higher-class. Ointments, balms, moisturizers, etc. are used sparingly, if at all considering that most areas of the nation are hot and humid. Having dandruff and/or a foul smell are the most important qualities to avoid. Acne is often seen as simply a coming of adulthood, but after puberty most citizens are prone to use treatment to control it. Ek'keans are avid users of hair conditioner, it is one of the most profitable fields (also very competitive) aside from tourism and electronics. It its an unspoken social rule that one should not wear the same garment for a time totaling over 8 hours without washing it. Women will never be seen using glitter, fake eyelashes, other similar products are considered ridiculous by a extremely high percentage of the population. Soft makeup is sometimes applied, anything more is left for use on formal occasions, nothing overdone, always subtle. For men, facial hair is very common, and they take pride in a well groomed beard, goatee, etc. Overall, hair tends to be on the long side for most citizens and it is quite uncommon to straighten or specially treat hair. (as compared to other nations)

Postby Serretes » Tue Dec 31, 2013 11:47 am

In Serretes, hair is for the most part shaved off. Only hair that is almost always left alone is hair and beards for men. Moisturizer is never used, and skin is tough to prevent injuries. Beards are kept braided and cleaned nightly, and long hair is popular for all but the military. Lamb fat is occasionally applied to the face to prevent wind chafing. Women leave there skin soft, but men keep it hard to proven thorns and blisters and the like.

We like to keep our manes and coats clean. We shower and brush.
Or, if you are not a pony, you keep your hair and mostly non-hairy skin clean. Female humans usually keep their legs un-hairy.

Personal hygiene is moderately important in Carolina. People brush their teeth and shower daily but they aren't afraid of rolling down their sleeves and getting in the mud. Along the dirt roads of the backcountry, one can often see groups of people with pheasants, ducks or rabbits in one hand and shotguns in the other. The sheer stench takes a few minutes to get out of the nose but don't worry, they'll be showered in time to chop that stuff up for supper. People usually wash their hands for about 20 seconds and use basic shampoo, deodorant and body wash in their showers.

Most YellowApplans bathe (preferably by showering) at least once per 16-kilosecond cycle; not doing so is considered unsanitary, and an unsanitary state in such an enclosed environment typical of a YellowApplan city or settlement introduces greater risk for biological pathogens and the spread thereof.

In addition, YellowApplans tend to keep body hair shaved or at least closely trimmed (in the case of humans and other non-furred YellowApplans) and fur short and close-shaved (in the case of furred species). Laser hair removal treatments are commonplace. Head hair is often kept relatively short for both males and females of the relevant species.

Dental hygiene is typically maintained via tooth brushing and the use of antiseptic mouthwashes; each is generally used 1-2 times per 16-kilosecond cycle. Fingernails and toenails for relevant species are kept short.

Mama says we need to keep clean to stay healthy.

[Mama adds: My Children live in very densely populated spaces, dormitories with shared playing, eating, and sleeping quarters. Needless to say, communicable diseases are a recurring problem--my Children's medical science is thousands of years in advance of most xeno cultures, but they still haven't cured the common cold.

Knowing how germs and viruses spread though, I impress on my Children from an early age the importance of good hygiene as a way to stop the spread of disease. Their personal hygiene is actually a lot more meticulous than most xenos, which is one of the reasons they're not fond of most of you--apparently you smell rather bad to them.]

Personal hygiene is one of the few things normal Frenks adhere to in a religious fashion. In a culture that promotes beauty and the physical body, it only makes sense. It's not uncommon for one to shower at least three times a day. Public restrooms often have shower pods installed, as a matter of fact. Showers often have built-in perfumes and whatnot, keeping a light, sweet smell to us. Teeth are kept white and breath kept fresh with advanced mouthwashing solutions, nails are usually kept short for both genders, but it's common for both to paint them.

Keeping yourself hairless is important, as well. Both women and men are known to keep their bodies free from any hair, with the hair on the head being an exception. Men, due to historical friendliness, have been known to keep beards and mustaches, though, they're usually expected to turn their hair into an exotic fashion statement. We don't shave, we usually have highly advanced laser removal techniques, that last quite a bit and are quite thorough in their job.

In short, you won't come across a cleaner people.
