Many of us have been showering for years, but do not know that we are making some simplistic showering mistakes. Perhaps, after reading this, you would be conscious of these mistakes and try as much as possible to avoid them.
Spending forever in the shower
You do not need to spend more than 5 to 10 minutes to get your body cleaned up. However, when some people get into the bathroom, they take a lifetime there. You start wondering if they are giving birth.
You scrub your body too hard during bath
When certain individuals take their bath, they scrub their body to the extent that blood will be dripping out of their skin. Unfortunately, the skin is very sensitive and any harsh item used on it can cause bleeding. Try to be gentle while washing so that you won’t remove your skin’s protective layer.
You don’t rinse well enough
You find soap in the ears when they finish bathing. It is because they did not rinse off their body completely. Know that this soap leftover can lead to skin irritation and blocked pores. Henceforth, rinse your body fully even if you are rushing.
You tarry awhile to apply lotion
The best period to apply lotion is immediately after wiping your body dry. Do not wait to do other things before you use your moisturiser or whatever you use in moisturising your body.
Washing your hair daily
Avoid shampooing or washing your hair beyond two times a week to maintain its natural oil production. It is better.
Your bath water is too hot
Some persons due to the cold take their bath with very hot water. Doing this will only rid your skin of natural oil that usually helps keep it warm and moist.
