There are only so few things that feel better than taking a nice shower after a workout or a long day. However, there is the possibility you’re going about it the wrong way. Thus, here are four ways to shower properly:
The truth is you don’t need to shower everyday, although it may seem like you do. Your body can and will actually survive if you take a shower every other day. Besides, showering every day denies you of the essential oils in your skin and hair, so then your body has to create more to make up.
Honey is good:
For those who are balling on a budget or have delicate skin or are looking for something natural to use on their skin, try honey, really. You should be able to find this at a local store or at the market. Get some raw honey, as it serves as a natural humectant and exfoliant and has natural antibacterial qualities.
Don’t forget your feet:
Simply soaking your feet in soapy solution doesn’t count as washing your feet. If you really want to get rid of the dirt, stink and germs or fungus, then get a wash cloth or sponge and scrub your toes, the sole of your feel and the heel too.
Don’t step out of the shower wet:
This may seem like a contradiction but right after a shower, before you get out, make sure you turn on that fan or AC to full blast. It has both hair and skin benefits. Also, in the heat, it stops you from sweating the moment you’re done with your shower and getting smelly all over again
