The answer to the question, how often should I wash modern man, it seems obvious not for everyone.
Some believe that the habit to wash every day, but not once — not the result of manifest necessity, but rather a tribute to social pressure.”The idea of daily water treatments only caught on in the last 50-60 years, with the spread of bath & shower in separate apartments. Moreover, under some social pressure, and not on the basis of objective need. Everyone wants to smell nice, but the odor can only come from the sweat glands in the armpits and groin area. This is not all the body,” says Professor of dermatology Stephen shumack. He believes that it makes sense to walk in shower as needed, not on a schedule.
Shumack also warned that a daily hot shower can do more harm than good: “Too frequent washing dries the skin — wash away the natural fats produced by the body to protect the epidermis. Skin cells become more susceptible to bacteria and viruses. Occurs itching, flaking, which then, without proper care, grow into autoimmune diseases like eczema”.
From too frequent of water treatment and suffer hair becoming more weak and dry.Signs of the times
While experts argue, how often should bathe themselves the bath of the traditions of inevitable change. It is actually in our eyes but not always obvious because anyone, hand on heart, there is time to think about it?
For example, researchers from Manchester, Edinburgh, Lancaster and Southampton universities surveyed more than 1,800 people and found that only one in 10 takes a bath every day, others prefer a long shower. 90 percent of our contemporaries either do not lovers to soak, or consider the bathtub as the opportunity to relax, unwind, and not as a cleansing procedure.
Well, the skanks are only 29 percent of citizens: the fashion for the active rubbing is gradually eroding.
Depending on the type of skin doctors can advise to take a shower less often or more often. But if asked to name a kind of universal “right” number of water treatments in a week?
Professor of Virology John Oxford, for example, believes that “if a person regularly washes hands and intimate areas, he doesn’t need a daily shower is enough to hold water procedures in a day”.
Professor Shumak even more liberal: as a wash, in his opinion, should, to the extent necessary, that at everyone, don’t just lather daily in the shower without special needs.
Of course, in different countries, their traditions of cleanliness. For example, 29 per cent of Australians are washed twice a day, and another nine percent are not too lazy to run to the shower and the third time in a day. In China half the population washes only twice a week.
In Sweden, more than half of women don’t take daily showers. In the UK every day, “clean feathers” almost three-quarters of citizens.
In General, experts believe that we’re all going to hypercatabolism.
Dr. Alison brown from the University of Manchester believes that if the idea of daily washing will continue its triumphant March around the world, the effects on ecosystems will be very noticeable and not a positive one.
