These 8 bathing habits are harmful to health
The core tip: taking a bath is the most common little thing in life, basically as common as three meals a day.
But some wrong bathing habits may affect health.
If the wrong bathing sequence is most likely to affect blood pressure, taking a bath to get up will cause dizziness, and a bath before going to bed will cause insomnia.
Taking a bath is the most common daily life, basically as common as three meals a day.
But in fact, taking a bath is not just as simple as turning on the shower.
Lack of common sense or small casual mistakes can affect health.
Wrong order of bathing: Most likely to affect blood pressure Last year, an article published by the Japanese “Modern Journal” pointed out that the number of deaths in Japan due to unscientific bathing orders is as high as 1.
As soon as this article was published, it caused a heated discussion. Is the bathing sequence really such a big effect?
Regarding this issue, Professor Tang Chenglin of the College of Traditional Chinese Medicine of Chongqing Medical University said in an interview with reporters that improper bathing sequence does have a risk of death, but the chance of death is very small.
Professor Wang Huiwu, the former director of the Department of Traditional Chinese Medicine of the Second Affiliated Hospital of Chongqing Medical University, said in an interview with reporters that the order of bathing may be affected, but it is not the main problem. The time of bathing, water temperature and frequency of bathing are the main problems.
The continuous bathing at high water temperature in winter caused surface capillaries to expand, leading to a sudden drop in blood pressure, poor blood supply to the brain, poor blood supply to the heart, and finally syncope.
The temperature of the water in the bath should be controlled below 45 ° C.
Get up and take a bath: Dizziness. Taking a bath after getting up early can promote brain excitement and ensure one day’s mental stimulation. However, if you wash without breakfast, dizziness or hypoglycemic shock can easily occur.
If the temperature of the water is too high, the blood vessels will dilate, and there will be insufficient blood supply to the brain and collapse.
Get up early to bathe half an hour after breakfast.
Take a shower before going to bed: Insomnia hot water fully raises the body temperature quickly and inhibits the secretion of melatonin in the brain. If you go to bed immediately after washing, it will be difficult to fall asleep.
It is best to bathe 2 hours before bedtime. If you can only take a shower before bedtime, you can cold compress your forehead with a wet towel after bathing for 5 minutes.
Take a bath after a full meal: It affects digestion and you cannot take a bath on an empty stomach.
Immediately after eating, a large amount of blood gathers in the stomach, and then bathing, the blood vessels in the body will expand, and blood flow to the skin and muscles will increase, which will affect digestion.
In addition, it is not advisable to take a bath after drinking, otherwise it will cause blood pressure drop, dizziness, weakness, and even heart disease or stroke.
It is recommended to arrange a bath after meals 1?
Inadequate preparation before washing: Cardiovascular disease risk is large in autumn and winter. If you bring air-conditioning into the bathroom, a huge temperature difference will increase blood vessels and heart burden, which is very dangerous for the elderly and people with cardiovascular disease.
If coupled with poor ventilation, it will cause dizziness, chest tightness, shortness of breath, and difficulty breathing.
Therefore, it is not advisable to take a bath immediately after returning from the outdoors, and to warm up for 5 minutes before washing in cold weather, such as stepping on the spot, twisting the waist, rubbing feet, massaging Yongquan and so on.
The picture is clean and rubbing hard: the cuticle of the skin that damages the cuticle of the skin, the lipid film together constitutes the protective layer of the skin, but it cannot protect the body from damage, and avoid the loss of nutrients, especially water in the body.
Rubbing hard with a towel will destroy this protective film.
If you can hear the creaking sound when rubbing your skin with your fingers after washing, it means that the scrubbing is too much.
It is recommended to take a regular bath instead of “stretching and rubbing hard”. You can use a soft sponge dipped in shower gel to scrub gently. Use only a thick towel on the elbow to apply a thick cuticle.
The shower gel is squeezed a lot at a time: Dermatitis shower gels generally contain laurylamide to stir betaine, which can stimulate certain chemicals to penetrate into the skin quickly.
If the bath gel is used excessively for a long time, these chemicals are excessively absorbed by the body, which will combine with calcium and iron and remain in the subcutaneous tissue, causing dryness, allergic dermatitis, etc.
In addition, there is an antioxidant, BHT, in the body wash. When this substance encounters laurylpropyl betaine, it will become extremely active.
It is recommended to choose a shower gel that has no fragrance and is simple in function. Use a dollar-sized coin every time. If the body is not dirty, it is better to use only water.
Take a bath too long: The more you wash, the more tired you will be at 15 minutes each time.
After washing for a long time, I will feel weak.
Fatigue is related to the concentration of lactic acid in the blood.
Some studies have shown that the lactic acid concentration in the blood hardly changes after taking a bath for 5 minutes after fluorescent exercise; while washing for 10 minutes, the lactic acid concentration will decrease by 7?
8 mg; wash 30?
In 60 minutes, the lactic acid concentration has basically returned to the level before fatigue.
For ordinary office workers or light laborers, taking a bath for 15 minutes can restore the normal level of lactic acid in the body. Otherwise, if the time is long, the physical strength will be consumed, and fatigue will be restored.
Bathing is small and health is big.
Maybe for the very healthy people, the above problems have little effect, but in any case, pay more attention to your health, and your health will be more protected.
