For many people, showering is the most sacred part of their day. If you're like many millennials, and you're sharing one bathroom with at least two (or more) roommates, it may feel like the only time you actually get to yourself is under that blessed showerhead. Besides, is there anything better in life than standing in your own personalized steam room? Well, as it turns out, your steam room might not be doing you any favors. In fact, there's apparently a whole slew of things you're doing wrong in the shower.
Yes, showering is trickier business than you might think. If you're taking a hot, 12-minute shower, you might be doing something wrong. If you've got a fancy new six-bladed razor, it may not be as good for your body as you think. Seriously, there's a whole world of moisturizing and skin-pampering that you're probably missing out on by making these shower "mistakes."
The good news? These "mistakes" can easily be corrected without having to run to the store to spend your whole paycheck on fancy products and lotions. With a few simple tweaks in your usual shower habits, you might just unlock the key to soft skin, luscious hair, and, at the very least, a cheaper water bill to pay.
Here are eight "mistakes" you've probably been making in the shower your entire life.
