Have you ever wondered what would happen if you didn’t shower? We tell you what happens to your body if you stop showering.
According to the World Health Organization (WHO), it is recommended to take a daily bath, preferably with lukewarm water, and for no more than five minutes.
In ancient times, people didn’t know the importance of bathing, so people only bathed two to four times a month.
What would happen if you never took a shower?
Bathing every day is essential, not only to avoid bad smells, but also to get rid of the bacteria and dirt that build up on your skin, but what happens if you don’t?
A few days after you bathe, a layer of fat, dead cells, sweat, and good bacteria builds up to protect the skin from infection and keep it hydrated.
After two weeks of not showering, a person’s body odor can become strong, pungent and unbearable as bacteria, sweat and dirt accumulate on all parts of the body.
At this point, the dust and dirt that has accumulated on the skin can cause unbearable itching. This is risky because scratching can cause the wound to become infected from dirt that builds up on the skin.
Also, as sweat accumulates in certain parts of the body (such as the armpits, groin, or between the toes), fungus and bacteria can grow and seep into the bloodstream, causing ringworm or scabies.
Now you know, if you stop showering, not only will you smell bad and no one will want to be near you, but you can also get deadly infections and even diseases like ringworm or scabies.
