Personal hygiene (Clothes)
Cloth is what we wear to cover our nakedness.
TYPES OF CLOTHES
Jacket ans coats
Trousers and shorts
Skirts and dresses
The reasons why we wear clothes include the following:
1 To cover our nakedness. Clothes are worn to cover our body, so that we don’t go about naked.
2 To keep our body warm. Clothes keep our body warm when we put them on. When the weather is cold, it is the clothe we wear that helps to prevent us from feeling too cold.
3 To protect our body from injuries. Clothes help to protect our body from injuries. Any harmful thing that touches us will often make contact with our clothes first. This, therefore, prevents us from being injured as much as we would have been if we didn’t wear clothes.
4 To make us look attractive. It is very fashionable to wear clothes. When we put on clothes, we tend to look attractive or more handsome/beautiful.
