This is a debate as old as time; bath or shower. While some might prefer starting the day with a hot, energizing shower, others enjoy winding down in a warm bath after a busy day of work. So when it comes to your personal hygiene, you have to pick a side! But what will it be?
Let’s put both to the test and see which one emerges victorious as your wash-up routine!
Bathing in the Luxury of Baths
No matter how many arguments ‘non-bathers’ make about the fact that baths are just a means of soaking in your own filth; they can’t deny the ultimate luxury of a good bath! Baths can be so versatile; you can have bubbles, bath bombs or even enjoy a glass of wine with your favorite book, all while shedding all your worries and the day’s stress!
In fact, according to a recent clinical study, baths proved more beneficial than showers for both, mental and physical health! As dermatologist Whitney Bowe, MD claims that baths can help lower the levels of cortisone, which subsequently prevents premature aging and acne growth. So, unless you’re rolling around in mud all day, taking a bath isn’t as unhygienic as #TeamShower would make it sound!
Shower Your Blessings!
While a relaxing bath is what you need at a day’s end; showers definitely take the lead when it comes to starting the day with a bam! And anyway, you can’t take baths in the morning, and be at work on time.
In comparison, you can take a shower anytime, anywhere! They’re quick, energizing and environmentally a better choice! As Grist calculated that a regular bath uses up 36 gallons of water and a quick shower can use up to 25 gallons of water (unless you do some soul searching and end up taking a 45-minute long shower!).
In fact, it seems that not only do showers help save water but they also help save the natural moisture of your skin as compared to baths. Because the amount of water that makes contact with your skin is less than the tub of water that just consumes you!
