Before writing today’s article, Dr. Clove heard people say:
Isn’t it just a bath? No one won’t.
Yes, everyone takes a bath.
However, as we have already solved the problem of food and clothing and are running on the road to a well-off society, we naturally have a higher pursuit-to take a healthy bath.
So, is it good for how to take a bath?
To achieve this small goal, we must start by avoiding the four most common mistakes.
Error 1: Rub hard,
Rubbing and rubbing mud are the things many people must do when taking a bath, and they feel especially cool.
However, you always rub so hard, does your skin really not turn red or even feel painful?
In fact, there is a layer of [protective barrier] on the surface of our skin, which can prevent dust, bacteria, etc. from entering the body and also play a role in moisturizing.
However, the mud rubbed down during bathing is mainly skin debris, dust, sweat and other substances that fall off. Proper rubbing is good, but if rubbing too much, such as rubbing the skin red and painful, it may damage the protective barrier of the skin itself, causing the skin to become sensitive and easy to dry and itch.
Therefore, it is good to be properly clean when taking a bath. You don’t have to exert much effort or rub something out every time to be content.
If you must rub your bath, your back and your back, don’t rub it every day, just don’t rub it more than twice a week.
After all, you can’t expect to rub… just rub yourself thin?
Error 2: Strong Cleaning
Many people feel that the weather is hot and they sweat all the time, and their bodies are especially dirty. They must use strong decontamination shower gel or soap.
In fact, unless you roll in the mud every day, there is no need to wash so deeply.
The reason, as Dr. Clove said earlier, washing too hard will damage the [skin barrier], leading to dryness and itching.
So, how to choose cleaning products? Dermatologists have written a “Guide to Skin Cleaning in China”, and we can’t be wrong if we follow suit.
A good cleaner has several characteristics:
Good appearance, good smell, convenient to use. It can soften skin, smear it evenly, without dragging feeling. It can quickly remove all kinds of dirt and is easy to rinse. After use, it can maintain or approach the normal skin pH value (4.5 ~ 6.5, weak acidity), with less damage to skin barrier and little influence on local flora. After use, the skin is not dry and keeps luster and lubrication.
Can’t remember? Dr. Clove sent you a simplified version, just three:
The average person can use neutral cleaning products instead of strong alkaline and strong decontamination products.
Regular shower gel or soap can be used, but it doesn’t matter whether there are other specific functions.
If you feel dry after taking a bath, remember to apply moisturizing cream or body milk, especially for the middle-aged and elderly.
Error 3: Too Long
There are always some people [as deep as the sea when they enter the bathroom] who never seem to want to come out.
Therefore, you will feel chest tightness when washing. The reason is basically that the room is sealed and airtight, resulting in lack of oxygen and insufficient blood supply.
The solution is very simple, don’t take too long to take a bath, at least you should come out when you feel uncomfortable.
In fact, theoretically speaking, 10-15 minutes of shower is generally enough, even if it is a bath, it is best not to exceed 20 minutes.
If the time were longer, I’m afraid the water heater would not allow it either.
Error 4: Do not bathe during menstruation
All the above mentioned are [over-bathing], but sometimes, instead, they wash less.
For example, during the menstrual period when the big aunt visited, many women neither washed their hair nor bathed.
In fact, although menstrual women will be a little more vulnerable than usual, it is still no problem to wash their hair and take a bath, but it is generally not recommended to take a bath or shower.
After all, menstruation also loves beauty. How can she insist on not washing for so many days?
As for many people who say that their big aunt will have a headache when she comes to take a bath and wash her hair, this situation does exist. However, most of this headache is related to changes in body hormone levels. Whether you wash or not, the probability of headache is there, no more, no less.
If you are still worried about the impact of bathing on your body, you can wash it with warm water. After washing, you should keep warm and dry it in time.
In a word, when the big aunt comes, she should pay more attention to hygiene and cleaning. She should wash it if she wants, but don’t let herself go moldy.
