Showering and Bathroom Habits: Tips & Tricks
1. You need to wash your hands before touching anything else!
2. Always use soap or shampoo when washing up.
Don’t just rinse off with water like some people do. Your body needs to be clean first! (And don’t forget to dry yourself!)
3. If you’re going to use a towel, make sure it’s long enough so you have plenty of room to move around in.
A short one might not cover all your parts, especially if you’ve got a big hairy body!
4. Use a spray bottle instead of using hot water.
Hot water can cause burns on your skin! Spray bottles are much safer.
5. Make sure your hair is completely out of the way before putting on clothes!
Hair gets caught in things and can cause rashes later!
6. When brushing your teeth, try to keep them away from your face!
Some people get allergic reactions to toothpaste or even worse, they can choke on their own saliva when brushing their teeth! Soap won’t hurt you if you brush too hard though.
7. When applying deodorant, make sure you don’t get it on your clothes or even on your hair!
Deodorant and antiperspirant (which is kind of like a stronger version of the same thing) will stain clothing if you get it on them. It might even hurt skin if you get it in a scrape! And don’t worry about getting it in your hair. It washes out eventually.
8. Don’t forget to use a clean washcloth every day!
9. When you’re in the shower or bath, try not to share the showerheads or faucets with other people unless you are all washing the same area of your body!
Otherwise, germs and bacteria will spread! It’s very unsanitary and you can catch all kinds of disgusting diseases that way!
10. Don’t eat while bathing or showering. You might accidentally swallow some water and choke on it. Or you could slip and fall in the tub if you’re eating, which would be a waste of a perfectly good sandwich! Also, don’t drink the bathwater.
It probably has all sorts of weird chemicals in it that are bad for your body (and taste pretty yucky too!)
If you follow these steps, you are well on your way to having cleanliness and also staying sanitary!
It’s important to shower every day! If you don’t your skin gets dry and itchy. Not to mention you can get a rash if you don’t take a bath regularly. You might even start to smell if you don’t wash regularly. You also risk getting sick if you don’t wash.
No one wants to sit next to the smelly kid at school or have their kids smell your kid. So please give it a try for your benefit and everyone else’s!
Even if you don’t go around other people, it’s a good idea to shower everyday. Your skin will start to smell and look really bad if you don’t take care of it. Also, showers help get rid of dirt and oils that can clog your pores. If you leave these on your skin for too long, they can cause acne. To prevent this, just clean your skin gently with soap or facial cleanser.
Then rinse it off well and dry off right away.
1. Don’t take forever in the shower!
It wastes water and makes you pruney. You only need to be in long enough to clean yourself.
2. Don’t use super hot or super cold water.
A comfortable temperature is best for your skin and will get you out of the shower faster. (Of course, you don’t want it to be too hot or you might get a burn!)
3. If you have time after your shower, apply some body lotion to your skin.
It will keep it soft and moisturized.
Without these tips, your skin might start to look dry or flaky or even start cracking. Gross!
Some people have the impression that they are going to smell better if they use super hot water to shower in. This isn’t true! In fact, you are more likely get a burn if you do this. As for smelling better, remember that the smell of your soap or body wash is going to linger on you long after you are done showering. If you’re using a scented product, make sure it’s one that smells good to you.
Otherwise, you might as well be bathing in garlic sauce!
A few words about bathtubs: These can collect mold and mildew if they aren’t cleaned out regularly. Don’t use your tub if you notice black spots forming on the interior sides!
If you have a bathtub that has started growing bacteria, you can pour diluted bleach on the sides of the tub in order to kill any mold or mildew that might be living there. Remember: never mix bleach and ammonia because the resulting chemical reaction could cause serious injury!
There are some people who are “bath haters.” Some of these people will go to great lengths to convince you that bathing is a bad thing. These people are idiots. They talk about how dirty they are on the outside but don’t realize that THEY ARE GETTING DIRTY ON THE INSIDE BY NOT WASHING OFF THE GRIME AND DEBRIS THAT COLLECTS ON THEIR SKIN DURING A NORMAL DAY! These are the same people who think that deodorant is “icky” and encourages more sweating.
These morons will be the ones who die young of a disease that can be cured by a shot or a pill. If you’re one of these people, please, for the love of god, GET OVER YOURSELF AND TAKE A DAMN SHOWER!
I’m sure you know what a bathtub is, but do you know how to take one?
The steps are simple and listed below!
How To Take A Bath
1. Fill the bathtub with warm water.
2. Add bath salt, but not too much!
3. Get in and relax!
4. Make sure to stay in bath for at least 12 minutes.
The bath is a great way to relax and unwind after a long day. Just make sure that you don’t have too much fun in there (unless you are married). It’s also great to read in, though you might want to take a book that does not have a cover that will get water damaged.
The next thing we need to cover is shaving and grooming, which I will keep brief since it is a personal matter. In fact, some of the things that I’m going to mention may even be too basic for you to even bother with. That’s fine!
When it comes to shaving, remember the following tips:
1. Use a new blade every time.
Don’t try to reuse one.
2. Make sure the blade is sharp by testing it on your arm before you use it on your face.
If it feels smooth, then it’s ready to go. If it feels rough, then throw it away and use a new blade.
3. Always shave in the direction that the hair grows.
4. Always rinse the blade often and thoroughly.
5. Always use a fresh towel to wipe off the shaving cream.
Don’t re-use a towel that has had shaving cream on it.
Your face is going to be one of the first places that will show signs of aging. To prevent wrinkles, you should absolutely never go to sleep with your make up on! Girls, this means your foundation and eyeliner too.
The second thing that everyone needs to do is keep your face cleanly shaven at all times. If you can grow a full on mountain man beard and still be able to see your face, then more power to you, but the rest of us need to keep our faces cleanly shaven.
Shaving cream is necessary to prevent razor burn and cuts. While these things may seem manly, they aren’t. They are annoying and painful. With the right tools and preparation, shaving should be quick and easy.
It’s also a good idea to have a small strop to keep your blade on. This will help you get the most out of your blade.
After you are done, make sure to close the blade inside the toothpaste-like tube that it came in. This will keep the blade from getting dull and it also helps to dry the blade. The last thing that you want is to leave a blade lying around all willy-nilly and allow it to get wet. A dull blade is much more dangerous than a sharp one since it takes more effort to use.
We’ll talk about what to do AFTER you shave another time, because if I start talking about what to do AFTER you shave, well, this post is going to turn into a novel.
Baths, Showers, and Other Water Related Activities
Ah, the age old debate of whether to bath or to shower. There are many schools of thought on this subject, some of which are as follows:
1. Bathe every other day.
This allows your skin to keep its natural oils. If you must shower, make sure that you use a soap that will not strip your skin of its oils.
2. Bathe every day.
This will keep you clean and kill the bacteria that grows on your skin.
3. Shower once a day.
Take an actual bath every other day as well. Use a soap on the days that you shower that will prevent your skin from losing its natural oils while keeping it clean.
4. Only take baths.
In general, only bath when you need to or feel that you must, but take actual baths rather than showers since they are more relaxing. Showering is more for cleansing than anything else.
5. Shower twice a day.
This is a good way to start off the day followed by a bath at night. Start the day with a nice warm shower to wake you up and prepare you for your day. Then, end your day with a nice warm shower to relax you before bedtime. On Saturday or Sunday, take a long luxurious bubble bath as well.
