Did you know the average woman showers for nine and a half minutes a day? That means she showers for over 60 hours a year, and who knows how many hours in her lifetime? You could probably shower with your eyes closed at this point (but don’t—that’s very dangerous) because you have your routine mapped out to the millisecond. You scrub down here, rinse over there, put your leg up here to shave that area without getting a cut, and keep your products in strategic areas, based on when you’ll need them. But is it possible that you’re doing this very basic, daily activity incorrectly? Don’t worry, you probably smell fine and have legs as smooth as a baby’s bottom (on the days you feel like shaving) but you could still be making mistakes. Here are ways you’re probably showering wrong.
Holding onto disposable razors
While you may be able to use a dry disposable razor a couple of times, say on your armpits or for a quick run over your knees, you should not reuse a disposable razor you’ve brought into the shower. It collects moisture in your shower and can rust. If you cut your skin and the rust gets in, that could cause an infection.
