What does your religion say about personal hygiene? 

*This can also can be if you can or can't cut your hair*

In Islam

After using the restroom we are to wash not just use paper

We are to shower AT LEAST once a week, and after intercourse or wet dreams, if there is a smell you are to shower and cleanse yourself from the smell.

We are to remove our down stairs hair, as well as armpit hair, and arms and leg hair

We should take care of our skin and make sure it is clean and smelling nice NO BO

We rinse out our mouths after every meal, and 5 times a day before prayer, if possible we are to brush our teeth before every prayer

We are to keep our finger nails trimmed and clean

We are to keep our hair smelling and looking nice and well groomed.

Well, you already know sister, lol!
Cleanliness is very important in Islam. For your body and home.

I am not Palestinian (although I married into the culture). I am human. I
believe in human rights for everyone. Some people may think that this
is not "our" fight, but it is to me, because no matter their religion or cultural background, they are our brothers and sisters in humanity.  I will protest right along side everyone in Palestine. I may not be able to change the world, but I can
die trying.

What an interesting question!

I have no answer as I am agnostic.

 Nothing.  There are obviously rituals in certain religions that focus on certain hygiene, but people of any religion can be super clean or super dirty.

What religion are those people that smell like nasty arm pits when you cross paths with them at the store? Seriously I have to hold my breath when they walk past me. Is this a religion they're into or it's just them?

Nothing!  There was the Law in Old Testament (Judaism) but I'm a Christian and am no longer under the Law.  There were no new rules instituted regarding hygiene.
