Taking a shower every day is bad for you. Or is this just a unfounded myth? Today we will try to examine this issue as objectively as possible without bringing too much grist to our own mill.
Our skin is a delicate organ
The skin is the largest vital organ of our body and the one that is most in contact with the outside world. This is precisely why, for hygienic reasons or just to freshen up, we try to wash our hands and face several times a day, and many people choose to take at least one shower or bath every day. Is this wise, or may it be dangerous for the health of our skin?
It is not the shower or water in itself that can cause problems, as much as the products that we use to wash ourselves when we are under the shower. Most of them contain derivatives of petroleum, parabens (preservatives) and various chemical substances that can irritate and dry out the skin, depriving it of its natural protective layer of oils.
So what can we do to maintain the habit of showering every day without having unwanted and unpleasant problems that can affect the health of our skin?
