Taking a hot shower is one of the tricks to overcome insomnia. There are many studies that proved this, including a research published in US National Library of Medicine that mentioned that taking a hot shower is considerably effective in treating insomnia.
Furthermore, a hot shower is also reliable to mitigate excess oil on the skin, ease blood circulation, elevate the mood, and decrease stress. That’s why a hot shower is very recommended to be taken in the afternoon or at night before bed.

Is It True That You Shouldn’t take Hot Shower Every Day?
It needs to be acknowledged that taking a hot shower every day may bring negative impacts, one of which is making the skin dry. This is because hot water can reduce the natural moisture in the skin, which causes dryness in the skin.
Furthermore, hot showers can also make the skin more sensitive and easily itchy. This is still relevant to the natural oils in the skin, which function to balance skin moisture and prevent bacteria that cause skin problems.
Things to keep in mind to take daily warm bath
However, there are several tricks that you can do so you can take hot showers more often without worrying about the bad impacts, such as:
- Make sure the temperature of the water is not too hot. According to Sejal Shah, MD, a dermatologist from New York, USA, the water temperature for showers should be below 40°C.
- If you want to soak in hot water, it’s recommended to add several drops of essential oils, such as olive oil, virgin coconut oil, or others.
- Avoid rubbing your body but just pat it dry. Make sure you use a soft and clean towel.
- Don’t forget to use moisturizer after the shower or bath. This is to recover the natural moisture of your skin.
