Dear valued visitors,
We write to share with you the findings from the recent survey conducted by CloveTWO.com and Kosmo newspapers on the above issue:-
According to a recent survey conducted by CloveTWO.com and Kosmo! newspaper, only 44% shower right before going to bed.
Still, while showering before bedtime is important, it's absolutely crucial that antibacterial soap/shower gel – such as Lifebuoy's antibacterial soap - is used.
When showering, extra attention should be given to areas of the body where most people neglect, such as the back, behind ones ears and ankles, and between the toes – all bacteria-prone spots.
And why is it important to shower just right before bedtime? Well, simply because everyone, whatever their age, are constantly exposed to bacteria; at school, in the garden, at the office etc.
Then of course there's the little forgotten fact that the bed itself makes for the perfect breeding ground for all sorts of microorganisms. Dead skin cells, perspiration, the body's natural oils etc all contribute to making your bed the ideal harborage for bacteria, dust mites, and bed bugs. All these could lead to a wide range of health problems.
Since the findings on Malaysian is not very encouraging, therefore we should not disappointed with the fact, but we must view it positively. Therefore, it suggests that there is a lot of rooms for improvement. It is wise to adopt such healthy habit, rather than spending good time for other no healthy habit, because we are the ones going to benefit from having such good habit. Start it Today.
Showering in the morning, before the activities of the day, is also recommended. It freshens up the body, removing the build-up of bacteria during the night, and of course, perks you up to start the day.
For those with sensitive skin who are prone to skin irritation that leads to scratching, showering twice a day - in the morning and night - is absolutely vital.
To help us and other Malaysians know more about Malaysians' hygiene practices and how it affects our health, please do continue to support our Hygiene Awareness Poll and vote for Question 3 on CloveTWO.com.
Trust the above find you well and see you online again and again.
