Why showering too much is dangerous for you

Maybe you should shower twice a week only

The microorganisms range depending on age, lifestyle, gender, skin area, stress or environment.

Skin protection

Some of the bacteria found on skin is actually more helpful.

They protect the skin.

"These microorganisms have been with us since birth and are transmitted by the mother, the family and the environment. As long as the skin is healthy, these microorganisms do not disturb, do not make you ill, and, as new research has shown, are extremely useful for several reasons. They form the acid mantle with the help of secretions from skin glands and produce metabolic products that have a beneficial effect on the skin," experts explain.

Especially with too hot showers with alkaline soaps, wrong care products with many colors and fragrances or too strong scrubs can damage the skin by displacing the good bacteria.

In addition, the skin also loses its oils and this helps the penetration of pathogenic germs.

Experts encourage you to shower with water that isn't too hot, and avoid soaps with harsh anti-bacterial elements.

The more showers you take with such, the more frequently damage takes place and the less time your skin has to repair itself through natural oil production.
