There are certain hygiene habit we do, that do more harm than good. Here are some tips on what not to do.
Not sharing food. Sharing saliva among healthy friends and family members—and thus introducing their microbes into your own microbiol may actually help your immune system. So feel free to share your food.
Showering Daily. Hot showers strip protective oils from your skin, so you should always keep them short as you can. So make that shower short. Showering every day strips away the necessary oils in your skin and hair, which makes your body produce more to compensate. You might also want to consider a dry shampoo for no-shower days. You can make your own by grinding together 1 cup of oatmeal with 1 cup of baking soda. Sprinkle it on your roots, wait a few minutes and then comb it out.
Remove ear wax. Like many processes in the body, earwax production is a self-cleaning, protective mechanism that you shouldn’t interfere with in most cases. So ditch that Q-tip.
Shampoo your hair often. Shampoo strips away the good and the bad, potentially leaving your hair drier and more vulnerable to damage. Go as long as you can between shampooing your hair, even if that means more ponytail days.
Refrigerating fruits and vegetables. Researchers found that eating non-refrigerated fruits and vegetables actually boosts your immune system and increases the nutrient content of the food.
