After a long tiring day facing the stress from the office to traffic and finally you home definitely, a warm bath will be top priority.
But, what if you were told that the very thing you thought was keeping your skin clean, soft, and supple was actually breeding bacteria.
Well I'm not talking about any other thing but your bath sponge. Before you start scrubbing, pause, take a look at your bath sponge and ask yourself, when was the last time I replaced my bath sponge?.
If you cannot remember, definitely its been a while since you did. The thing is your bath sponge(loofah) are not the shower savior they seem to be.
That's because d*ad skin cells get tangled in the nooks and crannies of your bath sponge after you use it to scrub your skin.
Regularly changing out your used bath sponge for a new one can keep bacteria , mold, and yeast at bay.
In the warm, moist environment of your bathroom, these organisms can grow quickly and according to resent research, it was stated that a wide range of bacterial species, and bacterial overgrowth literally happens overnight, which can spread to your skin, even more dangerous when you just shaved.
This can lead to rashes, infections due to the bacteria.
After using your bath sponge each day, wring it to get rid of excess water, spread out in open and a well-ventilated area to dry.
Dermatologists recommend that you throw out a natural loofah after three to four weeks and the plastic kind every two months, since it easily grows bacteria in its hooks and crannies, and by that time, it would have lost its exfoliating property.
