These are all habits when bathing is close and familiar, but everyone knows the harm behind it.
Bathing is something we still do daily, but everyone must have had the habit of washing their face while bathing, bathing cotton is used forever .
However, these harmless things are the cause of your skin degradation!
Many people have a habit of taking advantage of showering, washing their face or gargling, and brushing their teeth. But according to Matthew Gebert - a technician at Fierer University of Colorado, the shower is a "common house" of microorganisms, pathogens, mold in the toilet.
According to experts, there are many pathogenic bacteria found on the shower. Specifically, NTM (Nontuberculous Mycobacteria) is commonly found in soil and water that affect the immune system, or Legionella pneumophila bacteria - which can cause pneumonia.
And these bacteria will invade the respiratory system when you "open your mouth" to bathe with a shower. That's why you should abandon this habit from today.
In addition, the flow of water pressure from the shower is quite high, and the water temperature is also quite hot - so the spray of water directly on the face can damage, dry the face.
It seems that many people believe that washing their feet will not be necessary because you are standing right under the water and taking a bath. However, having your feet wet when bathing doesn't mean they are washed.
Remember that our feet are exposed to billions of surfaces and they contain lots of bacteria and sweat. So, don't forget to wash your feet, even your legs!
The use of bathing cotton is to scrub, to remove dead skin, but sadly, many people only know how to use it but forget to replace it, clean the cotton bath regularly,
According to Dr. J. Matthew Knight, from Knight's Dermatology Institute (New York, USA), this seemingly harmless object is a true bacterium.
When you scrub, the dead heap is partially followed by water down the drain, but most will stay at the bath. Along with the wet environment, this will be the birthplace of bacteria.
And the next shower, these dirty things will quickly penetrate the skin causing back acne, redness, or worse they will go deep into the skin wounds, which can lead to skin infections. Therefore, experts recommend that you wash the bath cotton thoroughly after bathing, sun exposure, change it once a month, or best . not to use it.
Fragrant soap will definitely like it, but for those with sensitive skin - they can be harmful to you.
Most fragrances are found in soap, shower gel are synthetic fragrances . all these chemicals can cause skin irritation, skin allergies, skin itching, dermatitis . for users. So if your skin is dry and sensitive, it is best to choose a product with little / no fragrance, no color.
Also, if you use cake soap, you should also pay attention to the soap tray. You need to avoid allowing the tray to collect water - because that's where bacteria grow.
A bad habit of many people is to use a razor until it is completely blunt, can not be used to replace it.
But the truth is that if the razor is not sharp enough, they won't do a good job of cutting off the extra hair that even creates a scratch on the skin. At the same time, the repeated use also increases the amount of bacteria on the razor - which makes the day 1 skin worse.
Besides, after using the razor, you should not leave the bathroom area. The reason is because of the wet environment, many bacteria multiply. Therefore, according to experts, it is recommended to clean the razor after use, leave it in a dry place and change the razor blade about 1-2 times / month depending on the frequency of use.
