Science of Taking Shower

Choose The Right Shower Water Temperature 

In general, during winter, a comfortable shower water temperature is around 37-38 degrees Celsius, providing warmth without drying out the skin. In summer, a cooler temperature around 33-35 degrees Celsius may be more refreshing. Don't choose extrem temperature! For your own sake.  Extremely cold water can be uncomfortable and may cause shock to the system, while extremely hot water can lead to skin irritation, dryness, or even burns. 

Appropriate Shower Duration

The appropriate shower duration can vary depending on individual habits and needs. However, as a general guideline, taking a shower for around 5 to 10 minutes is often considered sufficient to cleanse the body. Prolonged exposure to water and soaps can strip the skin of its natural oils, leading to dryness and potential irritation. Also, it would consume a significant amount of water and energy, contributing to environmental concerns. 

When Should You Not Take a Shower ?

You may want to avoid taking a shower in certain situations, such as when you are feeling unwell and have a fever, immediately after vigorous exercise or physical activity that has caused excessive sweating, or when the water supply is limited due to drought or other environmental concerns. Keep in mind, if you have any skin irritation or sunburn, it might be best to skip the shower to prevent further discomfort. Always consider your specific circumstances and health conditions when deciding whether to take a shower.
