Showering or bathing every day is a cultural phenomenon, which as it turns out is not only unnecessary, but can actually be harmful to your health.  Clearly, the industries that promote products used for bathing are invested in marketing, that makes you believe it is gross not to shower daily.

In truth, while a shower or bath has the appeal of being psychologically pleasing, making you feel more attractive to others and being relaxing, it actually puts you more at harm for drying out your skin and leaving you open to infections.

The VIDEO you are about to watch below from BuzzFeed, reports that studies have shown that one or two showers per week is enough with regular activity!  Science as well as dermatologists warn that bathing more than that (unless you are filthy) can cause health problems.

1. Dr. Ranella Hirsch, a dermatologist who was quoted in an article in “Essence” that showering daily DRIES OUT YOUR SKIN, hair and nails, which strips the skin of healthy bacteria that in turn weakens your immune system.

2. Unless you work out breaking a huge sweat daily, or have a job that is extremely physically demanding causing you to sweat for many hours, you can get by with using a cleaning wipe or washcloth to clean the areas of your body listed in the VIDEO below that require daily maintenance.  Daily use of soap, according to Dr. Casey Carlos in an article on “today.com”, strips the skin of valuable oils that will ultimately AGE YOUR SKIN PREMATURELY.

3. The BuzzFeed VIDEO you are about to watch, has interviewed two dermatologists, who explain that daily showering “Creates SMALL CRACKS IN THE SKIN” which WASH AWAY GOOD BACTERIA, leaving the body vulnerable to INFECTION.

The video goes on to discuss the UNNECESSARY WASTING OF WATER and AVOIDING VERY HOT WATER WHEN YOU DO SHOWER.  It is further recommended by “WebMD” that when you do shower, a maximum of 10 MINUTES should be spent SHOWERING to avoid losing the valuable oils in your skin.

When it comes to cleaning just about everyone loves learning new simple ways to get the same old things done. It can be fun and interesting to discover what nifty and quick solutions people have come up with to solve common problems. This video, from YouTube channel Outdoors and Gear Review highlights a helpful trick for dealing with a common and difficult problem you’re likely to encounter when tidying and cleaning your bathroom up; hard water deposits and stains.

Hard water can be a real pain in the neck and the nasty looking stains and blemishes that it leaves behind on bathroom and kitchen surfaces can be extremely hard to fully remove.  The ugly spots and stains are caused by water that contains large amounts of minerals such as limestone, calcium, and magnesium.

These metals and minerals are naturally occurring, most often in areas with low water tables and mountainous regions, and water that contains them is perfectly safe to use and drink. The biggest downside to it is the crusty, whitish colored mineral deposits and stubborn stains it leaves behind. Over time these gradually build up on stuff, especially faucets and shower heads.

Many people struggle to remove these stains and often think that they need strong, harsh chemical cleaners to get rid of them effectively. However, there’s a better and more affordable way to go about cleaning a shower head with crusted on mineral build up. All you need is apple cider vinegar, a Ziploc bag, and a rubber band.

Simply pour some apple cider vinegar into the plastic bag and place it over and on the shower head. Use a rubber band to secure it in place and then leave it on overnight. Remove the baggy the following day, wipe the shower head clean, and it should be restored to its former glory!

Check out the video for more information and to see just how shiny and spotless looking it turns out. This may be the fastest, easiest, and most natural way to clean hard water stains. It requires minimal effort or exertion on your part so try it the next time you’re stuck cleaning the house!

This Pup’s Human Starts Singing In The Shower. His Response Is Hilarious!

Singing in the shower is like singing in the rain. Lots of people enjoy belting out a tune or two to pass the time and think they sound better in the bathroom under a flowing cascade of water. Science has even proven that we do in fact sound noticeably better in the shower thanks to the acoustic effects of how they are constructed. The small ceramic spaces act like mini sound booths because ceramic absorbs practically no sound and instead causes it to bounce all around your shower. This amplifies your voice and makes it sound much louder, powerful, and therefore more pleasing.

The shower also makes dogs sound like better singers, and the adorable German Shepherd named Maximus in this video is no exception. He likes to join people whenever they sing and so his owner recorded a duet of them performing Eduard Khil’s “Trolololo” song.

At first it sounds like Maximus may be whining a little and saying “noooooo” but he is just warming up his vocals. After 28 seconds he begins to really join the song and howls along in unison. It sounds like the musical pair even manage to hit the same notes several times and they clearly are utilizing the acoustic properties of their bathroom properly.

The video all came together in the end and has other sweet elements besides perfect sound. Beautiful smart dog + classic song + ideal camera angle and lighting =’s a quality YouTube video clip.

How To Watch The Epic Leonid Meteor Showers Peak From November 16-21, 2016

g8998g99g898gg98g98g8image via – shutterstock.com

Look up at the sky this coming Wednesday and Thursday evening to make a wish upon a star and see the Leonid meteor shower in full effect! It officially peaks on the night of November 16th into the early morning hours of November 17th and if you’re patient and observant, then the spectacular sight of shooting stars streaking across the heavens will meet your gaze.

In years past the annual shower has been known to put on quite an impressive light show. Based on historical accounts, scientists have estimated that upwards of a hundred thousand meteors an hour blanketed the sky during meteor storms brought on by the Leonids. That’s a truly astronomically high number and what an unbelievable sight it must have been!

Since the thirteenth of November our planet has been moving through the debris trail left by the comet Tempel-Tuttle and on November 21st it will exit it. All of the shooting stars that you see and wish upon are really just tiny bits of rock and ice that fell off the comet and burn up as they enter the Earth’s atmosphere. This year NASA meteor scientist Bill Cooke is predicting that anywhere from 10-15 meteors per hour will zip through the night sky. While it won’t be a major outburst like in years past, the shower will nonetheless produce at least a few beautiful gems!

The best viewing times for the Leonids are from darkness onward through the early morning hours, with ideal viewing at around one or two am. They are also visible from both the Northern and Southern Hemispheres, so no matter where you live, you can simply tilt your head back and see them flash across the sky!

While it’s best to look in the direction where the meteors are coming from, which is the constellation Leo, the majority of us don’t know where or how to locate it. For those who are not familiar with the night sky, you can simply use your cell phone as a navigation tool with a special app that tells you exactly where things are out there in the universe. All you need to do is download it and then point your phone up at the sky. It will automatically chart, identify, and map out exactly what you’re looking at. There are several of these astronomy apps available, including SkySafari and Star Walk, both of which are rated well and easy to use.

For an optimal vantage point you’ll want to find a nice quiet and open spot away from any lights. The only real rule of star gazing is that the darker the skies, the better the viewing. However, since it was just a full supermoon and the brightest its been in years, the light from it will interfere with the shower. By Wednesday it’ll be in a waning gibbous phase, so while the moonlight will be bright, visible meteors are still expected. Also, make sure to check the local forecast and so long as the sky is clear you should be able to see some shooting stars!

All in all, this years Leonid meteor shower will give you a great opportunity to get outside and get some nice fresh air while doing a little bit of sky gazing. Gather up your loved ones, bundle up warmly, bring the dog along, and have a relaxing evening under the stars!

5 Reasons Why You Should Throw Out Your Loofah or Shower Pouf Immediately

shutterstock_233491570image via – shutterstock.com

Do you use a loofah or shower pouf when you bathe and clean yourself? If you answered yes, then you may want to throw it out as soon as possible!

Scientists have now confirmed what many of us already knew, or at least sensed, about the popular shower accessories; they’re filled with all sorts of nasty germs. A recent study published in the Journal of Clinical Microbiology found that mesh sponges and loofahs are the perfect breeding ground for bacteria. Most of us leave them in the shower after each use and so they end up sitting in the damp, warm bathroom, an area of our house which is already filled with a wide variety of gross germs.

In addition to that, all of the tiny holes, netting, and folds in loofahs and poufs act to help trap dead skin cells, mold, bacteria, yeast, germs, dirt, grime, and more within them. In a moist environment, which the shower is, all of this bacteria thrives and multiplies quickly. In particular, yeast and mold seem to be able to grow rapidly in shower poufs. When it comes time to use them, you end up rubbing and smearing all that disgusting stuff all over your body instead of cleaning yourself. You don’t even need to think about it to understand how truly gross that is!

In order to minimize your exposure to all of the above and to cut down on the associated risk of a possible skin infection, it’s recommended that you replace loofahs and shower poufs every three weeks. This way any mold or germs trapped in it won’t have long to grow and spread. The bottom line is the longer you wait to replace it, the more infested and dirty it will become.

Check out the accompanying video to learn more about this and some of the other health dangers that may be hiding in your shower and bathroom. The information covered in it is eye-opening and it may just convince you to throw more than your loofah or pouf out!
