We've heard over and over how important washing our hands is so we probably start to think that scrubbing our entire body over and over to keep away the germs is necessary right now too. That's actually wrong, in fact excessive showering or bathing can actually do more harm than good. The three areas, according to one doctor, you really only need to wash with soap are your armpits, groin and feet. The rest of your body is good with a simple rinse of water. Sandy Skotnicki, an assistant professor of dermatology at the University of Toronto, stated that scrubbing your body head to toe with soap and water can lead to problems like eczema and other skin conditions. Instead it's better to just focus on those three areas previously mentioned. The article posted from BestLife at msn.com goes into more detail as to why you should focus on those three areas instead of scrubbing your whole body with soap all the time which you can read here. I'm grateful I don't have any skin sensitivity issues right now because I'm not sure I could skip washing my whole body. It would just feel weird, especially because I go to the gym almost every day!
