10 Important Things You Should Keep In Mind When Having A Bath
1- Don't Shower Immediately After Exercising:
Working out rises body temperature, If you take a bath right after, you may catch a cold.
2- Don't Use Too Much Soap:
The excessive usage of soap will leave your skin dry and lifeless. Reserve it for the parts that really need it...
3- Hair Conditioning:
Chemicals in shampoo extract the natural oil of the hair. It's important to take proper care by moisturizing it with a good conditioner to have shiny hair and prevent split ends.
4- Don't Over-scrub:
Don't do it to hard or to often. Never more than once a week. It will ruin your skin and it can lead to skin infections.
5- Be Careful With The Loofah/Scrubber/Washcloth:
If the scrubber doesn't dry properly between uses, beware! While it's damp it breeds bacteria that can cause skin allergies, itching, or even a staphylococcus infection! Actually, a good soap and your hands are enough. If you MUST use it, always remember to rinse it and let it dry.
6- Don't Leave The Towel On:
Leaving the hair towel on for too long will dry your skin and cause hair loss.
7- Anti-Bacterial Soap And Deodorant:
Putting on deodorant immediately after having a bath may cause itching, flakiness and even dry skin because of the chemicals in it. And anti bacterial soap shouldn't be used for a bath.
8- Moisturize Right Away:
Don't wait for more than 3 minutes after coming out of the shower. It may lead to skin moisture loss, causing cracks that leave the body more exposed to bacteria and infections.
Never wax or shave before the bath. It increases the size of the pores, and leads to dull skin.
10- Using salt:
Put 1 to 2 mugs of salt in a bathtub full of warm water.
Lay down for 10 to 20 minutes.
Then rinse off the salt. No need to use soap after this, unless u feel that some part of your body really need to be cleaned with soap.
If showering, fill a bucket with warm water an 1 mug of salt.
After you finish washing with soap, poor the salt water over your body. You can use a plastic container or a saucepan. Then rinse the salt off.
