While many of us are used to shower once, some of us even twice, a day, there are people out there that do tend to put off their hygiene. Whether its because they don’t like the process of showering, don’t have time or don’t feel like it, these people find it acceptable to put off a nice shampoo and conditioner.
Next time you’re hesitant on the shower, you might want to think twice. You may not realize it, but putting off a shower can have a seriously negative effect on your body.
Read on and discover what happens to your body when you put off showering for a couple of days.
Putting off showing for even just a day allows for the accumulation of bacteria and germs all over your skin. Humans carry nearly 1,000 bacteria on their bodies in general, so just imagine what happens when you don’t maintain your hygiene. I don’t think I even want to discuss the unsanitary result.
Going off what we mentioned before, the more bacteria and germs on your skin, the greater risk of getting an infection. Some bacteria is good for you, but too much and they’ll seep in your skin follicles and cause some infections you don’t even want to find out about.
Everyone likes their face to be crystal clear. I mean, the last thing we want is to be talking to a certain someone only to have them look at the blemishes on our skin. Well, one logical way to prevent breakouts is to shower and wash your face regularly. The more you put it off, the more you allow for dirt, oil, and sweat to get caught in your skin.
