Wash Your Face After Traveling
If you wear makeup every day before leaving the house, make sure you immediately wash your face upon arrival at home instead of waiting until bedtime.
Thick makeup will cover the pores of your face and cause acne. Plus dust and pollution stick to your skin when you are out.
Reduce Lighting in the Bedroom
The pineal gland in your body creates melatonin when the atmosphere around you is dark so you can sleep soundly.
But the bright lights in your bedroom can make the production of melatonin distracted and you can wake up in the middle of your night’s sleep.
As a result, melatonin production immediately slumps down and makes it difficult for you to continue sleeping.
Consider buying a light sleeper or an alarm clock illuminated with a red light, which is less disruptive to melatonin production than blue or white light.

Diligently Drinking Clean and Healthy Water
Drinking water is one of the most important needs of your body. The reason, most of the human body contains water.
In addition, the body needs water in the process of digestion, circulation, absorption, maintaining body temperature, channeling nutrients to all parts of the body, removing metabolic waste substances, and saliva production.

Dispose Of The Trash Right In Place According To The Type Of Garbage
This behavior is the most difficult behavior applied in the family environment, the community as well as school. This waste problem is a complicated problem because it involves the awareness of not littering.
The waste we produce must be borne out by others because of our inability to secure our personal trash. Behavior consuming littering has damaged our environment.
Therefore, the behavior of clean living will run well and correctly if every individual has the awareness to dispose of waste in place according to its kind.
Do Not Smoke
Smoking in the house was not only dangerous for the smokers themselves but also all the people who live in the house.
A study found smoking in the home will leave toxic substances in home furnishings, carpets, curtains, even the walls of the house.
A chemist, doctor Eunha Hoh reveals, cigarette smoke contains thousands of chemicals that can stay on a surface. Of the thousands of chemicals, many are toxic and carcinogenic.
According to scientists, the longer an environment is exposed to chemicals, it can turn chemical compounds into harmful.
If exposed for years, it can increase the risk of cancer, asthma attacks, lung problems, throat and eye irritation.
Cigarette smoke can indeed be absorbed into all the porous surfaces. The toxic substances from cigarette smoke will then settle long in all contaminated household furniture.
“We are really surprised by how strong the contamination at home is, even after a few months people stop smoking indoors,” said an environmental health scientist, doctor Penelope Quintana.
Smoking in the house will certainly endanger the health of children who often play on the couch or carpet in their homes.
Researchers call these children as third smokers or those who do not smoke, are not exposed to cigarette smoke directly, but exposed to toxic substances from cigarette smoke that has settled in the furniture.
Another study shows, parents who smoke in the garden or yard also can still harm children. Researchers also remind people to be careful if buying a former home smokers.
A psychologist from San Diego State University, USA Serikan, Georg Matt even said that the house is a tobacco smoke pollution storehouse. Georg has spent 20 years researching the effects of secondhand smoke on a third person.
