8 Disgusting things that may happen if you do not bath and shower regularly
Many times, due to things beyond our control (mostly laziness), we skip our shower or bath and only do with a quick wash on the personal areas and lots of deodorant. You think that you will have a proper bath and shower when you come back or even the next day. But ultimately, laziness and procrastination causes you to skip that shower entirely.
The thing is, how long are you ready to stay dirty? And also there are things that can happen to you if you do not take bath regularly or skip it for 4-5 days on a trot. Want to know what kind of things? Here are 8 things that are yucky and disgusting and may happen to your body if you do not take baths.
1 Toenails will become bad
Our feet are well-known for having bad smells and other similar odors. They are mostly encased in closed shoes, wrapped up in socks and what not. Sweat builds up and causes damage to the feet, but the most disgusting culprit are the toenails. It stores all the filth and everything and you can get diseases like the athlete’s foot and also crack your skin if you do not take care and wash your feet regularly.
2 You can get allergies
Our skin is a nice tropic motel for bacteria and viruses. There are thousands and millions of different types of bacteria on our skin and that’s the reason we need to wash it regularly. The number and strength of these bacteria keeps increasing every time you skip shower or bath and they can infect your skin, your eyes, nose, causes various allergies and even stomach bugs.
3 Obviously you will look filthy
The body responds to days and days of not cleaning yourself and you start to not only smell, but also look filthy. The hair start to harden and skin begins to get thick, due to build-up of dirt and grime and what not. Environment and pollution plays a role in making you look like a Neanderthal and to avoid such look, please take showers and baths regularly.
4 More dirty fingernails
Like with nails of feet, the fingernails of our hands are also very good place to harbor germs and bacteria. We use our hands to do almost everything, from picking up dirty stuff to eating with them. You pick your nose and teeth, clean your ears and even wipe your eyes, transporting germs everywhere. So, keep the nails short and clean your hands after getting them dirty.
5 Dirt in the bellybutton
The belly-button or the navel is one place that collects so much muck that you can suffer from a condition known as omphalitis or navel stone. If you do not shower regularly and clean your navel, it collects sebum and keratin, which are natural secretions from the body. Mix those with the muck and everything, and you get a hardened black gooey mass in your navel, full of bacteria. Trust us, it will look gross. So bath regularly and clean your belly button.
6 You hair will be messed
The hair will become dirtier and dirtier thanks to all the dirt and smoke it collects during the day, if you do not shower. Though, it is not advisable to wash your hair every day, doing it 3-4 times a week is recommended. It will also get greasier as it secretes natural oils and mix that with the dirt and you will have some messy hair. Therefore be sane and take baths and wash your hair with shampoo every now and then.
7 Skin becomes more dry and scaly
If you do not wash your face, do not remove makeup and moisturize, the face will become full of dead skin cells. The layers of dead skin cells, dirt and oil will make the face look like something out of a horror movie. You will develop acne, face will become dry and it may produce more oil to fight the condition. Not good news for you girls.
8 And no big deal, but you will stink a lot
The biggest and the most obvious side-effect to not taking baths regularly is that you STINK. Everyone in 5 meters radius of you, will come to know that you do not shower regularly and though it might not result in you losing friends and family, it may decrease your social life drastically. Sweat, perspiration and build up of fungi and germs will cause people to head in opposite direction. So, please be a genuinely good and clean person and don’t skip showers. If necessary, take 2 showers a day, one in morning and one at night.
