It is believed that a person spends an average of 1.5 years in the shower during his lifetime. A long shower gives us time to ourselves. Six months spent washing yourself – this once again shows how important it is for us to be clean. Just like our shower room. However, there are some things that most of us overlook.
The next time you take a shower, keep the following in mind to get the most out of it.
- Take a shower after your workout
Sweat smells bad because our skin has bacteria when we exercise. In order to avoid skin allergies and rashes, it is necessary to clean these microorganisms from the skin. So take a shower as soon as possible after your workout.
- Do not get a pedicure after shaving
We usually shave our legs first and then get a pedicure. This exercise will hurt the small scratches on the legs.
- Take a contrast shower
When you’re almost done showering, turn the shower all the way down. Shower pressure can even out the pressure on your body and help strengthen your frame. However, showering before bed sometimes doesn’t match our sleep cycle.
- Bathe every day
Showering and washing your hair every day can dry out your skin and thin your hair. Do not rub yourself daily to avoid flaky skin and scalp.
- Do not wrap the towel around your hair.
Wet hair breaks and falls easily. Moisture does not make hair look clean and fresh.
- Clean your shower head regularly
The shower head is something we almost never clean. Scrape the build-up from the shower head for a healthy and hygienic shower.
- Keep your soap dry
Soap should be dry to prevent bacteria and other bacteria from forming on the soap. While the soap dish is still wet, the cake of soap melts and prevents dirty water from flowing out.
- Don’t leave your razor in the shower
If you use a razor in the bathroom, be sure to grab it before you leave. Moisture makes the blade unusable.
- Change/wash towels regularly
Change or wash your towels regularly to prevent bacteria from growing on them. Do not expose the towel to the air every day, keep it wet.
- Cleaning the bathroom
Clean the tub immediately after showering. This will help keep it clean for later use, whether it’s for someone else or yourself. In addition, it stops the formation of E. coli in the bathroom.
- Don’t leave your sponge wet
Be sure to put the sponge in a clean, dry place after showering. Otherwise, a wet net can become a breeding ground for bacteria.
- Wash your feet thoroughly
Most people neglect washing their feet as much as they think about washing their bodies. But careless washing can lead to ingrown toenails.
So you can see that regular showering can help us lead a better lifestyle. So swim properly and follow the rules of hygiene!
