Full body hygiene is very important not only for comfort, but also and most importantly – for health-related reasons. Neglecting hygiene leads to the formation of an environment conducive to microbial growth, which can eventually cause skin irritation and disorders. The elderly, bedridden patients and people with disabilities are at much greater risk. Therefore, specialist skincare products which are designed to meet the needs of demanding skin are the best solution in this case.
Why is skin hygiene so important?
A lot of people perform their daily hygiene routine almost subconsciously, without thinking about how crucial it is for their bodies. However, neglecting daily hygiene can make the skin deteriorate very quickly. Unpleasant symptoms such as dryness, roughness or irritation may occur, depending on the individual characteristics of the skin. This is because the body constantly secretes sweat and sebum and the skin works non-stop – a natural process of epidermal death takes place which can be disturbed by the body's general condition. At the same time, the body does not float in a vacuum, but exists in an environment that affects it. The temperature, humidity, long periods of time spent in bed, contact with pollutants – all of these factors have an impact on the function and appearance of the skin.
Furthermore, the condition of the skin is a reflection of what is happening to the body. If – despite proper care – its condition is unsatisfactory, it is a clear sign that something wrong may be taking place in the body. Perhaps the body needs additional hydration, supplementation or a consultation with a specialist? The condition of the skin can reflect a variety of internal diseases.
Daily skin cleansing helps prevent infections and the spread of pathogenic microorganisms such as viruses, bacteria and fungi. On the other hand, the condition of the skin is also affected by the body itself. Metabolic processes result in the formation of harmful by-products. They are removed from the body, e.g. with sweat through the skin, and create the perfect environment for bacteria to thrive. Following a daily hygiene routine is believed to prolong life and certainly protects against infections. Therefore, it is advisable to cleanse the skin with soap and water or, where this is not possible, to use specialist skincare products, such as Seni Care wash cream 3-in-1 or adult wet wipes.
Skin hygiene in bedridden patients and patients with disabilities or urinary incontinence
Healthy, physically fit people can use water and soap, shower gel or shampoo as part of their daily hygiene routine. It is much more difficult to maintain hygiene in patients with disabilities or bedridden patients who remain in bed at all times. Sometimes bedridden patients and patients with disabilities also struggle with urinary incontinence, which can increase the risk of chafes and bedsores. Therefore, when traditional skin cleansing is difficult or impossible, you should adopt other methods.
It is possible to follow a full body hygiene routine without using water thanks to a wide range of specialist skincare products. For a comprehensive daily hygiene routine, you can choose products such as Seni Care wash cream 3-in-1 or conditioning and washing body foam by the same brand. For occasional skin cleansing you can use Seni Care wet wipes.
