Ever since the Coronavirus pandemic started and lockdowns were implemented, many people decided to take a break from their personal hygiene as well since they had to take a break from going to social gatherings. And their attitude is that since they don’t need to go to social gatherings, then why bother washing up at all?
Then again, there are many people who have not changed their cleanliness habits either which means they go the other way. There are people that shower daily and that is because they just cannot stand feeling so dirty. However, showering daily, especially if you use soap is not recommended either.
The thing is, your skin has good bacteria in addition to bad bacteria. But the good bacteria help manage the bad bacteria which is you need those healthy microbes. Showering daily by using soap and water will disrupt that which can make you susceptible to superbugs which is the last thing you want. Yes, that is right, you could end up with infections that are not easy to fight off. That is why you do not want to wash your body with soap and water daily.
However, with that being said, there are three body parts that do need washing daily because they can become riddled with bad bacteria otherwise. How do you know if those areas of your body that require frequent washing are getting out of hand? They smell, and they smell terrible.
