A dermatologist has explained the three body parts most people aren’t washing properly, and the dangers of not doing so.

Lindsey Zubritsky, who calls shares content on TikTok under the name ‘Dermguru’ says neglecting these three body parts can lead to complications.

The first body part she targets is behind the ears. She says if you rub behind your ears and feel anything or smell an odour, you’re not washing there enough. This can lead to skin irritation including “flaking and dandruff”.

“Showering you really need to get under those nails with a scrub brush to get rid of the dirt, debris and build up.”

Zubritsky warns that failing to wash these three body parts enough can lead to skin irritations across your body including “folliculitis and mrsa” [a type of bacteria].

For those now urgently rethinking their shower routine, Zubritsky has shared a subsequent video explaining what an “everything” shower should look like.

She says you should start by washing your hair including shampoo and conditioner although she recommends not leaving the conditioner in until the end of the shower as it can lead to “clogged pores” and “back and chest acne.”

Next, Zubritsky recommends exfoliating your body which should be done before shaving to “reduce the risk of irritation and razor bumps.” She also recommends using a shaving gel.

After all of this she says you can rinse everything off.

Surprisingly, Zubritsky doesn’t recommend the use of loofas.

To finish up, Zubritsky suggests a double face cleanse, and once you step out, she recommends wrapping your hair up in a “microfibre towel” and then moisturise.
