But is taking long showers good for you?

Well according to the researchers at Yale University, people who take a long-hot shower may do so to subconsciously ward off feelings of loneliness or social isolation. It could be seen as a time of relaxation when having cold or mild warm water showered from above, it seems proven as physically you are enjoying the sensation. But it is also constituting longer water exposure that can lead to dry skin and hair. A longer shower also “gives the water a chance to allow any cleansers to be more damaging.”
