Did you know, that while we pamper ourselves under the shower we could be doing more harm than good, this is what I have recently found out !
We should not spend more than 10 mins., in the shower even though we are really happy and enjoying the experience, 10 mins., is more than enough for a complete hygiene, 5 mins., is sufficient for the skin to take in the necessary humidity it needs.
Don’t be taken in by the fabulous warm temperatures, this will only produce a weakness in your skin and invite saggy skin to appear, our skin contains fat protectors (lipids) which avoid germs and protect us from the cold, these can vanish with the continual use of very hot water. It is better to use warm water to avoid the skin from becoming to dry.
Don’t over do the great gel and shampoo we can buy today, to think we have a better result if we apply more, we do not become even cleaner, in fact the more we use the more long-term damage we do to our skin.
