Body hygiene – the shower

Recommend to others!


1. Overview


Each person washes his body every day without thinking. The shower can be in terms of hygiene and skin care one of the most important things people can do for them.

Each day, the body organs perform their functions. When they perform their normal activity, they secrete substances such as sweat and sebum that deposit on the skin.

With showers or baths, these deposits are cleaned and removed. Depending on the area of the body, the amount of discharge varies resulting that some areas should be washed several times a day (the hands, for example). The body wash will remove dust and dirt accumulated during the day.

2. The perfect moment to take a shower

The perfect moment to take a shower doesn’t exist; it is an individual choice. Those who wash their body once a day can choose the moment according to their needs and comfort. However, it is advisable to take a shower immediately after an activity that involves any kind of dirt.


3. Correct methods for body wash

The main role of the shower is to clean and refresh the body. The body wash will be made very simple: first, the whole body will be completely wet, will apply shower gel or soap on your hands and it will cover the body, including the areas behind the ear, skin folds, between toes and other areas where the moisture that may develop fungal infections may stagnate.


4. What is more recommended a hot or a cold shower?

It is not recommended to use too hot water for the skin as this can aggravate some skin diseases such as allergies, the skin becoming more sensitive. Always wash the body with warm water or at room temperature.


5. Showering is better than taking a bath in the tub?

No, both have the same function. Bath in a tub involves using smaller amounts of water. A person can take a shower when is more relaxed or when he has muscle pains because water jets can relieve discomfort.

Washing body in the tub is more relaxing and allows the use of aromatherapy products. For people who suffer from certain diseases (eczema, atopic dermatitis), baths are more recommended (therapeutic purposes).


6. What to do after shower?

Immediately after washing the body, is the best time to moisturize the skin. Because skin is a bit wet after a bath, the moisturizer will be better absorbed.

It will use an antifungal powder on skin folds especially in summer, to prevent fungal infections. The hair will be buffered gently with a towel and will be combed with your fingers to prevent hair breakage.


7. What happens if I won’t wash my body properly?

A number of problems can occur due to lack of hygiene, especially for people living in tropical countries. Those who do not wash their body properly may develop fungal infections like candida. If the skin is not cleaned properly during summer, it is prone to bacterial infections such as folliculitis and impetigo.

Improper hair and scalp washing can lead to various infections of the scalp, severe dandruff or even lice. In addition, the shower helps eliminate odor that can be embarrassing in most of the situations. A clean body is an integral part of a healthy lifestyle.
