You’re probably wondering what could possibly go wrong during a shower, right? The thing is, when you shower, you place your entire body under water and use different types of soaps and scrubs that might actually be damaging your skin. Since showering is something that is considered to be extremely simple and personal, we are rarely taught which things may be harmful and which habits are good to have.
I found a few mistakes many people make on daily basis and want to share them with you.
1. Washing your face
It seems to be very convenient to wash your face when you are in the shower, but it’s really not good for your face. Most people shower under hot water and it’s usually a much higher temperature than the water you’d use to wash your face. The facial skin is very sensitive so it’s better to use lukewarm water so as not to harm your face.
2. Not washing your feet
It probably seems that washing the feet is totally unnecessary because you are standing right in the water during the shower. The problem with this misconception is that wet doesn’t automatically mean clean. Our feet get into contact with all sort of stuff when we walk and they sweat too. They do a big job for us so bend down and give them a good wash — they deserve it.
