Teach you how to take a bath properly

Bathing is not as simple as washing with water as you think. If you don’t pay attention to some details, bathing can also wash out diseases.

I. don’t take a bath after getting up

Taking a bath after getting up early can stimulate the brain and ensure that the spirit of the day is uplifted. However, if you take a bath without breakfast, you are prone to dizziness and even hypoglycemic shock. If the water temperature is too high, the blood vessels will expand, and there will be insufficient blood supply to the brain and collapse.

correct practice: get up early and take a bath half an hour after breakfast.

2. Don’t take a bath before going to bed

Hot water will rapidly raise the body temperature and inhibit the secretion of melatonin in the brain. If you go to bed immediately after washing, it will be difficult to sleep.

correct practice: it is best to take a bath 2 hours before going to bed. If you can only take a bath before going to bed, you can cold compress your forehead with a wet towel for 5 minutes after taking a bath.

3. Don’t rub hard.

The cuticle and lipid membrane on the skin surface together constitute the barrier protective layer of the skin, which can not only protect the body from external damage, but also prevent the loss of nutrients in the body, especially moisture. Rubbing hard with a bath towel will destroy this protective film. If you can hear the squeaking sound when rubbing your skin with your fingers after washing, it means that you have washed too much.

correct practice: it is recommended to take a bath frequently, instead of “saving up and rubbing hard”. You can use a soft sponge dipped in bath gel to gently scrub, and only use bath towels on elbow, knee and other parts with thick cuticle.

IV. shower gel should not be too much

The shower gel is crowded a lot at a time. Shower Gel generally contains lauramide propyl betaine, which can stimulate some chemicals to quickly penetrate into the skin. If shower gel is used excessively for a long time, these chemicals will be absorbed excessively by the body, combine with calcium and iron, remain in the subcutaneous tissue, and cause dryness and allergic dermatitis. In addition, there is an antioxidant BHT in the bath liquid. When this substance meets lauramide propyl betaine, it will also become extremely active.

correct practice: it is recommended to choose shower gel with no fragrance and simple function as much as possible. It is enough to use a dollar coin each time. If you are not dirty, it is better to use clean water only. After washing, you’d better apply moisturizing lotion to your whole body.

v. warm up before washing

In autumn and winter, if you enter the bathroom with air conditioning, the huge temperature difference will increase the burden on blood vessels and hearts, which is very dangerous for the elderly and people with cardiovascular diseases. If coupled with poor ventilation conditions, it will cause dizziness, chest tightness, shortness of breath, dyspnea and other symptoms.

correct practice: it is not advisable to take a bath immediately after returning from the outdoors. In cold weather, you should warm up for 5 minutes before washing, such as standing in place, twisting your waist, rubbing your feet, and massaging Yongquan acupoints.
