These body parts you rarely wash have a lot of bacteria

Some people think that if they stand in the shower and the water is pouring on their feet, it is enough to wash their feet.

Feet should be washed daily with warm water and shower gel [Life Hacker]

Daily baths of the whole body do not necessarily have to be good for us and are not advisable, only some parts of the body require daily washing, and the rest should be washed several times a week.

Researchers emphasise that not everyone needs to wash their hair every day, for example. The frequency of washing your hair depends on its type.

Of course, if you have thin, delicate hair that also gets greasy quickly, you can wash it every day. In the case of dry and curly hair, it is better to wash it less often so that it does not dry out even more.

Bright Side suggests that a daily hot shower is not necessary. Although it is incredibly relaxing after a hard day, too frequent hot baths can cause irritation and dry skin. In this case, it is better to shower only three times a week.

Among the parts of the body that are often overlooked when washing are the feet. Some people think that if they stand in the shower and the water is pouring on their feet, it is enough to wash their feet. However, this belief is wrong.

Feet should be washed daily with warm water and shower gel. It is not only a matter of hygiene but also care. Ensuring that your feet are clean helps prevent cracked heels and calluses.

Another often neglected part of the body is the tongue. Even if you brush your teeth and gums thoroughly twice a day, you may forget to clean your tongue. Meanwhile, the tongue has many protrusions where bacteria can accumulate and cause bad breath.

So feet and tongue need to be washed every day. No excuses here.
