Showers. Some of us love taking showers. While others may not exactly like having to get up in the morning to take a shower before we start the day or coming home from a long day of work having to force yourself to shower off before hopping into bed. On lazy weekends when you feel too tired to get up from bed, the simple thought of breaking the daily routine and skipping showers occurs invariably. You canâ€™t deny that youâ€™ve gone a day or two without showering from sheer laziness. However, showers can be therapeutic. Itâ€™s a pleasant experience and a great way to unwind. After good night’s sleep or a long day at work, hopping in the shower can relieve your stress and a place where you can reflect on the day and of course, clean yourself to promote good hygiene and smell socially acceptable.
Our showers are more important than we know and can be taken for granted. Most of us use showers on a daily basis. Every day we are exposed to germs and bacteria, particularly in public places. Daily showering is necessary to avoid odours, infections and germs. No one wants the embarrassment of smelling bad due to lack of showering.
You should also know that showering doesnâ€™t just keep you fresh and smelling good, but it also helps to keep you fit and healthy. This may come as a surprise to many, but other than maintaining your personal hygiene, showering does have many benefits.
1. Reduces muscle tension
Just by simply taking a warm shower, it can help reduce tension on your muscles, especially overstretched muscles. It can help heal sore muscles by relaxing them and improving the flexibility and elasticity. Sore muscles can be healed especially when showering after exercising.
2. Improves blood circulation
Immersing yourself in a tub full of water increases blood circulation in the limbs and nourishes damaged cells. With an improvement in blood circulation, you can experience a decrease in blood pressure and an improvement in the functioning of the heart.
3. Boosts the immune system
Both hot and cold showers benefit the body. Studied have shown that taking cold showers regularly can stimulate the vascular and lymph system to produce more immune cells that fight infections. Strengthening your immune system by taking cold showers can also strengthen you mentally.
On the flip side, hot showers have numerous positive effects on your body. It helps with your complexion as it forces your pores to open up and the steam can cause you to sweat, which is a good way to detox by sweating out the unwanted substances from your body.
4. Induces sleep
Showering before bed can help induce sleep and improve the quality of sleep. In some, cases it has even cured insomnia for some people.
Showering can be further beneficial when you use certain showering products. From scrubs, washes, shampoos and conditioners, these products can provide you with a variety of different benefits. Soap is commonly used in showers on the body, however, its use should be avoided on the face to maintain a good complexion as it can dry out the skin.
