What have you rubbed off in the bath? It's not necessary to say that the dirt can also rub off a lot of horniness. For northerners, do you like to take a dip in the big bath and rub your back? But do you know what the mud is?
In the freezing season, many people take the initiative to reduce the frequency of bathing because they are afraid of the cold, from daily washing in summer to once every three days, or even once a week. Because of the long interval between baths, I feel that there are many dirty things on my body every time. I need to wash them vigorously before I can clean them.
Some people think that besides rubbing off the dirty things, they can rub off the dead skin and exfoliate the skin, which is helpful for skin beauty. They should rub every day. What is the truth?
What did you rub off in the shower?
Dirt from needless to say, horniness can rub off a lot. However, it takes 28 days for keratinocytes to grow up and fall off. Excessive exfoliation and insufficient skin compensation are harmful.
The cuticle is the first line of defense on the skin surface. In addition to resisting the external microbial, mechanical, physical and chemical stimulation, it can also prevent the excessive loss of water through the skin. If the cuticle is completely lost, the loss of water through the skin will increase by at least 10 times.
Therefore, frequent bathing actually rubs off an important physiological defense line of our skin. In some people who have a history of skin allergy, this often leads to an increased risk of allergy.
In addition, vigorously scrubbing will rub off only a little sebum on the surface. The climate in most areas of China is affected by monsoon and relatively dry in winter. When the external humidity decreases, the hydration degree of the cuticle on the surface of our skin will also decrease, the sebum secretion will decrease, and the skin is prone to dry and desquamate. If it is excessively cleaned and vigorously scrubbed at this time, it will thoroughly rub off the relatively thin sebum layer, aggravate skin dryness, and even induce a series of dry skin lesions such as pruritus.
Is bathing good or bad in winter?
The metabolism of cutin is going on all the time. In the wet season of spring and summer, the sebum is secreted vigorously, and the cuticle has a high degree of hydration, so the cuticle will fall off less, which is not easy to be observed by the naked eye. In autumn and winter, it is easy to find that there are obvious desquamation on the skin surface or even on the clothes that are close to the body, which is the exfoliated keratinocytes.
So there's no need to worry too much about exfoliation in winter: it's easier to fall than in spring and summer. If you want the skin to be smooth and moist, you don't have to exfoliate. Excessive exfoliation will cause the water to evaporate faster through the skin. In terms of dry season in autumn and winter, softening it is the key point.
But in winter, it is necessary to worry about moisturizing.
In order to protect our last weak and pitiful sebum layer in the cold wind, we should pay attention to the following three points when bathing in winter:
Not only is it not advisable to wash it vigorously, but also the bath water should not be overheated
2 bath time should not be too long, the number of baths can be reduced to about two or three days.
After 3 bath, a large area of skin cream containing vitamin E, urea and other ingredients should be applied to achieve the purpose of moisturizing and softening cutin, making the skin delicate.
When can I rub it?
Perikeratosis is a very common chronic keratosis of hair follicle. You may not understand what it is, but if I say its common name: "chicken skin", I believe you have never heard of it.
It is prone to occur in the outside of the arms and the front of the legs of teenagers. It shows a small papule of the size of the tip of a needle. There is a hard horn plug in the middle of the papule. After removing the horn plug, you can see the small hair inside. Usually it doesn't hurt or itch, but it's not very good-looking. Winter is more serious than summer.
There are many prescriptions on the Internet for "cure chicken skin", but in fact, it is a self limiting disease, that is to say, even if it is not treated at all, it will gradually subside by itself, only very slowly.
Before it gradually subsides, there is no way to cure it in advance. If you think "chicken skin" is ugly, you can't bear it for a moment. The most practical way is to use a slightly hard bath rubbing tool like loofah in the bath, and gently rub parts, which can improve the situation.
The frequency can be adjusted according to your own situation, generally once a week is appropriate; do not use too much force each time, with the skin slightly red without pain; only rub the part, not the whole body; after bath, use 10-20% urea ointment or cod liver oil ointment to soften horniness and moisturize. It takes years until it heals itself.
When it comes to this, I think someone will jump out and say: 'I only take a bath once a month. It's not clean without rubbing. It's not sanitary!' however, Dr. Chen has seen through everything for several years since he worked. What's unhygienic is that he takes a bath once a month. It's not a matter of rubbing or not at all!
