This Happens To Your Body When You Don't Shower!

Since we have been young, we've been instructed to take a bath each day and keep our bodies cleansed. This is not because we have to understand some customs or listen to our parents. Having our bodies clean has a scientific reason.

The importance of taking a bath every day is scientifically proven. So if you've been caught up with work or it's too cold outside to take a bath, here are your reasons for jumping into a quick shower.

1. Bad bacteria

The upper layer of skin on your body contains good and bad bacteria. The good bacteria produces natural moisturizers and protects your body from bad bacteria. If you don't shower, the bad bacteria forms a layer over the good bacteria and doesn't allow it to function. As a result, there would be an accumulation of bad bacteria over your skin that spreads germs and skin-relate diseases.

2. Infections on the skin.

If the bad bacteria stays on your skin for too long, it may cause infections as well.

3. Dirt and sweat

Even if it is the peak of winter, our body sweats without realizing it. This sweat might evaporate or gets absorbed in your clothing, but the germs secreted along with the sweat stay on your skin.

4. Flaky skin

Accumulation of dirt and germs due to skipping bath can also lead to flaky or scaly skin.

5. Body odor

Bacteria and sweat accumulated on the skin causing breakdown of chemical compounds which release a foul smell called as body odor.
