The 3 Dirtiest Body Parts People Forget To Wash Properly

It is easy to say that we wash every inch of our bodies and are perfectly clean when we step out of the shower, which isn't always the case. Unfortunately, there are parts of our bodies that we aren’t cleaning, according to a new study by researchers at George Washington University. The ‘Grandmother Hypothesis’ is a study focusing on the idea that there are three body parts our grandmother would insist on us scrubbing. The first of these parts is behind the ears, as anywhere with a crease or fold can lead to a build-up of bodily fluids and dead skin cells. A build-up of dirt or dead skin can lead to an inflammatory skin condition known as seborrheic dermatitis, which can cause your skin to flake. “Letting the water get it” isn’t sufficient for in-between your toes as your feet sweat and when not washed, this can lead to a build-up of bacteria. Lastly, wash your belly button as, as well as being moist, it has folds and creases, which can become a breeding ground for dead skin cells and bacteria.
