Apparently, 80% of people wash their legs in the showerâand a surprising 20% do not. According to the data, this mean 164,000 people don’t believe in washing their legs. Many users argued that the soap and water from washing their upper body would run down their legs, cleaning them in turn.
Hello! I am a Dermatologist and author of #beyondsoapbook. It discusses the harmful effects of soap on the skin and how over cleanliness has lead to diseases like eczema, asthma and allergies. You don’t lather up if you are not dirty. So no leg washing unless they are dirty.— Dr.SandySkotnicki (@DrSkotnicki) May 11, 2019
Others were shocked to find that not everyone performed the seemingly innate task of washing their legs. However, a board-certified dermatologist added that not washing your legs might be beneficial to people with allergies, eczema, and asthma.
