Washing the body thoroughly is important. It’s not just a sign of cleanliness; it also keeps wicked germs away.
However, there are parts of our body as humans that we often ignore washing well enough. This sometimes isn’t deliberate, but out of plain forgetfulness. If you doubt me, read on, and see for yourself.
The back of the ears
The back of the ears are hidden, so it’s pretty easy to forget that part while you’re in the shower. Sometimes, you clean all others, and forget this one part. It’s not really your fault; it’s because of its location, but it’s important to give it attention because germs can build up there over time and cause you skin infection. If you have to set a reminder for it, do it so you remember more.
The corners of the nostrils
The nose has two breathing points called, nostrils. Almost behind them, you’ll find these corners that are easy to miss out during bath. In fact, I really didn’t think people could ignore that part too because I never do, but then, I went to an eatery once, and beheld a sorry sight of whitish substance around that area on a pretty young woman’s nose. It was very disturbing, but then, it occurred to me that people genuinely forget.
Okay, this has to be the most forgotten part of the body during shower. Trust me, I know because I once didn’t care about it, but then, I realized just how embarrassing it could be if someone got close enough to see it looking unclean. One clear sign of an unclean navel is a patch of dark substance that usually covers it. You scratch it off with your fingers, and it falls off.
Behind the knees
Behind the knees are the legs equivalent of behind the elbows on our hands. The elbows you can wash always because it’s in plain sight, however, behind the knees you tend to forget more because you don’t really see them.
