Are you using this type of bath sponge every time you wash your body? Dermatologists recommend you to throw it away right now, because can be very harmful for your health.
J. Matthew Knight from Knight Dermatology Foundation says that after using the shower sponge, a layer of skin remains attached to it, entering its inner layers. When you leave the sponge in the bath after use, moisture remains locked inside it, causing microbes to proliferate, causing mold and fungi.
Everything happens in a few hours. In addition, if you use the sponge after you’ve shaved with a blade, you can get sick quickly with microscopic organisms that enter into the skin, through small cuts. If you prefer to wash with this sponge, clean it very very well after every wash and let it dry out of the bath. Replace this bath sponge every few months.
