4 Reasons Why Men Should Not Always Bath With Hot Water
Warm showers can help to relieve tension and relax stiff muscles. A good soak in warm water, whether it’s a bath or a shower, can open up our skin’s pores. Furthermore, if the water is clean, it can wash away some of the dirt and toxins from our skin. As a result, your skin will be fresher and cleaner.
Did you know that taking a hot bath every day has some health implications? Health professionals have specifically advised men not to bathe in hot water all of the time. Here are a few examples of health issues:
1. It can cause dry skin
Bathing in hot water should be avoided if you have sensitive skin because it might cause rashes and other allergies. It is crucial to avoid extremely hot baths and showers since dry skin is the most prevalent cause of itchy, irritated skin. Extremely dry skin can lead to more significant issues such as skin irritation and potentially exacerbate eczema.
2. It has an effect on fertility.
Taking a hot water bath for more than 30 minutes according to medical experts, can impair one’s ability to reproduce. Constant exposure to’ moist heat,’ on the other hand, can harm your fertility. For men who have already been diagnosed with reproductive issues, excessive exposure to warm water can exacerbate the problem.
Men who avoided taking hot baths or showers saw an increase in the generation of healthy sperm with a high motility rate in their sperm, according to studies. Their sperm count increased by a whopping 49%.
3. It can cause skin to age faster.
Everyone wants younger-looking skin, but hot water showers can make your skin wrinkled and haggard far too quickly. Hot water depletes the natural oils in the skin, leaving it dry and irritated. To keep us safe from the elements, our skin is made up of unique proteins and lipids that form a protective barrier and lock in moisture.
4. It has the ability to cause hair loss.
Splashing your head with hot water can damage your hair’s roots, resulting in significant hair loss. Hot water is unnatural and may damage hair follicles. Anything above 37 degrees Celsius is considered above body temperature and thus abnormal. It has the potential to irritate and dry out the scalp. It’s possible that it causes inflammation, which causes hair miniaturization, which causes hair thinning and loss.
