Taking a shower or a bath is an everyday thing and how much do we pay attention to doing it the right way? Shampoo, soaps, and water – that’s all we need to complete a shower. But there are things you still don’t know. Here are few bath habits that are ruining your health. Scroll down to know.
- Taking Hot Shower:
Taking hot shower can dry out your skin and at the same time will relax your muscles instead of energizing them. A lukewarm shower is recommended before sleep. But in the morning, choose cold shower. It will also help your skin to hold the moisture and will give you a boost of energy.
- Rubbing Yourself Dry With Towel:
Do you rub yourself dry with your towel? It damages your skin to a great degree. Neither air drying is good for your skin. Rather opt for a soft towel to pat your skin dry.
- Do You Clean Your Feet Daily?
If you are skipping your feet while you take a shower, then it is time for you to pay attention to them. If you think the soapy water can clean your feet when you take a bath, then you’re wrong. You need to scrub your feet daily in order to get a smooth feel.
- Forget To Moisturize?
We often forget to moisturize our skin after a shower. But our skin is delicate and needs moisture to stay supple and healthy. Apply moisturizer to your skin right after your come out of the shower. Don’t delay as it will take the moistness away from your skin.
- Not Showering After Work Out:
If you are in a habit of not taking a shower after your workout sessions, then you must start this now. Not only that you smell gross after work out but it also generates bacteria that are harmful to your skin. So, make sure you take a shower after exercise.
- Doing Shampoo Every Day:
Some of us are so obsessed with cleanliness that we tend to shampoo our hair every day. But it is quite damaging to our hair as shampoos have a lot of chemicals. Avoid using shampoo on a daily basis.
- Wrapping Hair In A towel:
Do you come out of your bathroom wrapping your hair with a towel? Stop doing it. If you are having a lot of hair fall, then it might be the reason. Wrapping hair with a towel creates a lot of strain and wet hair is weak to put up with it.
