You have the need to hop into a warm shower for several reasons. Firstly, a shower helps you wash away the stresses that accumulated over the day if you take your showers at night. Or, if you take your showers in the morning, then you would want to freshen up and get the jolt to start your day. Secondly, it is obvious that you take a shower to clean yourself up. And you scrub yourself quite well as you wash your hair, your armpits, your private areas, as well as your arms, torso, legs, and feet.
You want to really scrub up your feet and armpits well considering they attract the most bacteria. That is the reason that they smell bad. When it comes to cleaning your private area, you do so delicately. The point is that you want to scrub yourself to the point you are squeaky clean. You then come out of the shower feeling fresh. However, are you really as clean as you feel? Chances are you are not because you likely forget to scrub up one body part that is just as dirty and bacteria-ridden as the parts of your body you scrub up the most. What part of your body do you and everyone else neglect to wash? That would be your belly button. Your naval area is never scrubbed. And it is time that you start cleaning out your navel area.
Your Navel Area Is Full Of Plenty Of Bacteria Because It Never Becomes Washed
You will want to start washing your belly button because due to the fact it is never washed, you have over 60 types of bacteria that are thriving there. Not to mention, you also have plenty of residue of body lotion, soap, sweat, and dirt accumulating there. Your belly button is absolutely filthy. Yes, it is gross and nasty, but it is also dangerous if you do not clean out your belly button because you could get infections and at the very least, it may become inflamed. That is not something you want to face.
If you have never faced inflammation in your belly button then you are fortunate. However, now that you have this knowledge, you are going to want to make sure that you begin cleaning out your naval area on a regular basis. Not only will the gross factor of it disappear, but you will also reduce your chances of ending up with infections. You are probably thinking about how it is possible to wash your belly button since the area can be just as sensitive as your privates, but not in the same way. That is easy to do.
How Do You Wash Your Navel Area?
You cannot just go into the shower and put soap on your finger and scrub the area. That would be too uncomfortable and you could end up dealing with some pain later on. When you are ready to take your shower, take a cotton swab and insert it into rubbing alcohol. Then you can carefully rub the inside of your navel cavity and be sure to go into every crevice so you clean it well. You will find that if you just use one swab, it will get dirty fast to the point that you cannot keep using it. You may need to use a few swabs in order to clean your navel cavity completely.
However, once you see that the swabs are coming back clean, then your belly button is clean. Then you will want to take a fresh swab to put into water so you can use it to rub away the rubbing alcohol to prevent it from drying your skin. After you are done with your shower, dry yourself well, and take a clean cloth and gently dry your navel cavity. Don’t put the lotion in it or else it will cause an accumulation of debris and bacteria again.
You don’t need to wash your belly button daily but two to three times a week is good enough. If you are keeping your belly button clean regularly then you will be one of the few that has the cleanest navel cavities around. And you don’t have to worry about infections or inflammation either.
