Generally, people must bathe using soap every day to make it cleaner and more smellier.
But it turns out, according to research, bathing with soap every day is not good for your body.
According to Dr. James Hamblin, there is no point in showering with soap and other additives.
In his book “Clean: The New Science of Skin”, Dr. James says cleaning agents can affect the balance of the natural microbiome.
Simply put, smearing our bodies with soap can confuse our body’s natural response to dirt.
Because of this, Dr. Hamblin decided to leave soap behind when taking a shower.
However, Dr. Hamblin abandoned using soap when bathing gradually or little by little.
“My skin gradually became less oily, I no longer had any eczema patches.
I don’t smell like pine or lavender,
but I also don’t smell like the onions in my underarms that used to be smeared with deodorant, “explains Dr. Hamblin.
Even so, Dr. Hamblin didn’t ask everyone not to shower at all.
Dr. Hamblin still believes that bathing is a very important ritual.
Dr. James Hamblin is not the only health expert to warn against scrubbing your body with soap products every day when you shower.
Researchers have also shown that scrubbing your body with soap every day can exfoliate your skin.
Even the Harvard Health website advises against showering every day.
While there is no ideal frequency, experts suggest that several baths per week are sufficient for most people.
