Bathing Tips: Use It in Daily Bath
The things that you do everyday -shaving, shampooing, clipping your nails, washing and drying your hair. Personal grooming, for most people, is a series of well-entrenched habits. Have you ever considered whether you are making the most out of these daily rituals? Would you be willing to change your routine, if doing so made your skin, hair, and nails look more attractive and make you better-looking?
Most adults, who are over thirty, commit one big mistake when it comes to washing and that is they do too much of it like a shower in the morning, another after the gym, maybe even one before bedtime. The average woman spends twelve minutes in the shower. That's too long. For your skin's benefit you should cut down your time under the shower to five minutes.
The term "over-washed skin" is used to describe a large subset of people with dry skin whose problem comes from spending too much time under the shower.
Americans, especially, are personal hygiene maniacs -they are petrified about the thought of missing a daily bath, revolted by the thought of anything but a well-scrubbed, antiseptic body. Too much washing results not just in cleanliness but also in itching, irritated skin, particularly in the winter months.
Below are bathing tips that you can benefit from:
- You should not use a wash cloth on delicate areas, especially in the mucous membranes.
- You should use medium-warm water in the shower. The cooler the better, but not too cold.
- You should use Dove Unscented or Basis for Sensitive Skin on your body and either a soap free cleanser or nothing at all on mucous membranes, if you have normal skin.
- You should use then use a deodorant soap such as Dial, Safeguard, or Lever 2000 on any part of your body that tends to be oily - usually the back or chest, if you have oily skin.
- You should skin a shower as often as you can. This may not seem like appealing advice but the more time you have in between the showers, the better. Skip a shower for a whole day once or twice a week, especially in the winter. Allow your skin to produce and maintain its natural oils.
