10 Common Not-So-Healthy Shower Habits We’d All Better Forget About

Posted on

3. Not replacing your loofah regularly

It is a very well-known fact that mold loves warm and wet conditions and this is exactly what we have in the showers. Therefore, if you are using the same loofah for months and years, there is a very good chance that you are already sharing it with the mold. If you cannot see it, it doesn’t mean it’s not there. Wash your loofah very well after each use, hang it somewhere where it can air dry, and replace it once a month.

4. Using a soap dish

If you use bar soap, check where you put it after each use. Built-in soap dishes are not the best choice for the same reason as above — bacteria and fungi love it. A wire soap dish or one with spikes are much better options. Plus, your soap won’t get soggy, which is a huge bonus.

5. Using liquid scented soaps

Sure, it may smell very nice, but if you have sensitive skin, liquid scented soap might not be your friend. Some chemicals in the liquid soaps can cause irritation, especially the fragrances. If your skin is dry and sensitive, using the fragrance-free liquid soap can make a big difference. Another option is using bar soap with no fragrance, coloring, or other harmful ingredients.
