The cold sets in little by little, and the desire to spend more time under a hot shower also. If some need it to wake up in the morning, others prefer this moment of relaxation in the evening after a day’s work. But a few more minutes spent in the shower have a huge impact on our water consumption. Questioned by Sanex, the number 1 brand recommended by dermatologists, Dr Marie-Estelle Roux, specialized in aesthetic and medical dermatology, revealed the optimal duration of a shower to take care of the planet. Verdict? 5 minutes a day should be enough to wash and rinse.
Choose eco-friendly cleaners
Dr. Marie-Estelle Roux also recommends limiting your consumption of cleaning products: “Use a minimum of cleaning product, for example for a shower gel, a small amount of product in the palm of your hand is enough”, she says. To go even further, the solid cosmetics are a very good alternative to conventional products. “Solid forms generally require fewer preservatives and less packaging. Regarding washing, the solid forms are often soap-free and with a less acidic pH than the liquid forms and are therefore less aggressive to the skin,” she concludes.
