Cleanliness is more important than health - at least that’s what you would think from the way most people take their shower! Most of them love to get under the shower as often as possible. They seem to be very keen on keeping themselves clean as much as their cars. But is it healthy for our skin?
The short answer is no. Sweat and fat keep our skin soft and supple and help healthy bacteria and fungi to thrive. This naturally acidic protective coating also prevents toxic fungi from penetrating into our skin. So once again it all comes down to what skin type you have. Each skin type has its own needs, and each skin type can dry out if you don’t shower properly.
