I would like to know of any references in general Buddhist texts that cover maintaining the body's appearance, health, exercise and cleanliness for lay people.

See I know someone who puts too little effort into maintaining their body but if I could point this out to them then I think they would maintain their body because it is part of the training.

I don't know any answers to this, but I would also be interested. I would imagine the Tantric paths would put more emphasis on this kind of thing... but I could be wrong.
