Should you shower every day? How often should you shower?
Myth: Showering every day dries out the skin and damages it.
Fact: When done right, it does the opposite. Water is the moisturizer. Lotions and creams don't introduce moisture to the skin. They lock in the moisture already present in the skin and make it stay longer.
The human body is a manifestation of the five elements - earth, water, fire, air and ether. The control for these five elements is at your fingertips. I mean literally at your fingertips. The "HOW OF IT" is not taught in schools, and we won't get too deep into the subject now. Instead, we will use the logic of this science to make your natural deodorant perform better and improve your quality of life.
What is a shower?
A shower is water in continuous motion. A constant flow from a higher point to a lower end.
Showering has a purpose.
The purpose of a daily shower is not to wash off the dirt on the skin. Showering every day is not a cleaning ritual. When water is allowed to continuously flow at a particular temperature from the crown of the head to the heel, it creates a positive effect. One of them is regulating body temperature. The water temperature for showering should be 5°C to 8°C below room temperature.
Complex emotions like anger, agitation, stress and anxiety raise body temperature. As a result, the body produces sweat to cool itself down. Hence many people sweat profusely even when they wear an aluminum-based antiperspirant. Stressed about an important presentation at work? Start your day with a proper shower.
The best natural antiperspirant and moisturizer is water. Start and end your day with a shower, wear Super Deodorant once and continue to be super.
Here is how to shower properly,
Step 1: First things first. Showers should be short. Imagine a youth dormitory lineup for urgency.
Step 2: Get naked. Start your shower at a lukewarm temperature. Take it down a notch below room temperature.
Step 3: Let the water flow from the crown of your head to your heel. Massage yourself gently from head to toe in a gentle sweeping motion for a couple of minutes. You don't need soap or shampoo twice a day.
Step 4: Crank the temperature lever to the coldest setting and finish off the shower. You will hate this at first, but you will start loving the process when you see visible changes with time. This step is crucial for locking in moisture and keeping your skin supple and well-protected. Do not skip this step.
Step 5: Quickly towel dry and lock in the moisture with body oil or body butter. This window is short so be quick and moisturize within 3 to 5 minutes.
