Since childhood, we are taught that drinking alcohol and using filthy words are bad habits. However, sometimes even routine everyday actions can have a bad impact on our health and body too. Moreover, those habits often disguise themselves as being healthy. For example, did you know that a relaxing bath with bubbles can be dangerous?
We got surprised at how seemingly harmless habits can affect our health negatively and we feel eager to share our discoveries with you.
11. Wearing nylon tights often
The frequent wearing of nylon tights and tight jeans can promote ingrown hairs on your legs and in the bikini zone. It all happens because the tight material prevents the hair from growing through the skin and instead it starts to grow inside it.
In order to avoid this, you need to regularly scrub and moisturize the skin, and wear cotton or bamboo fiber tights, instead of nylon ones. Cosmetic items sold in special shops can also help fight ingrown hairs.
10. Using a sponge for washing the dishes
Scientists calculated that 1 cubic cm of the dirtiest sponges contains about 50 billion microorganisms. They get on our hands and we then touch our bodies and faces, and as a result, provoke rashes and skin diseases.
Cleanse sponges with the help of boiling water or an alcohol solution. The best alternative is to buy an inexpensive jute sponge — it is 100% natural, decomposes fast, and lasts longer than an ordinary sponge.
