When the weather turned cold, Uncle Tom began to miss the enjoyment of taking a bath in the bathhouse. After all, compared to the shower at home, Uncle Tom still prefers the former. However, what troubled Uncle Tom was that every time after taking a bath, the skin on his hands was dry and numb, and it was very uncomfortable to wrinkle. For example, the showering time at home is short, and Uncle Tom rarely has such a problem. As long as he takes a long bath in the bathhouse for a long time, such a problem is obvious.
Uncle Tom also felt some doubts in his heart. Why does it seem that only the skin of the hands and feet will have such fold changes, and other positions are not prone to wrinkles. What is the situation? I believe that in daily life, there are many This kind of situation has happened to everyone, and today we will briefly talk about why such changes occur in hands and feet after soaking in water for a long time.
Why are the hands and feet prone to wrinkle changes after being soaked in water for a long time ?
First of all, let’s explain that under normal circumstances, the whitening and wrinkling of hands and feet after soaking in water will not cause harm to our body. This is a normal physiological change and can be fully recovered after a period of time, so there is no need to worry about this problem. The reason why hands and feet are prone to wrinkles after prolonged soaking is mainly because the skin on the soles of the palms and feet is different from the skin on other parts of the body .
In daily life, our hands and feet turn white because the stratum corneum on the hands and feet swells and softens after being soaked in water for a long time . Because the stratum corneum swells in different proportions , there will be a bumpy feeling. The reason why this problem only occurs in the hands and feet is mainly because there is almost no fat on the palms and soles of the feet. Because the skin fat is thinner, the tension is poor and the skin cannot be taut and supported all the time, so it is easy to appear. A bumpy feel.
To sum up, whether it is the palm of the hand or the sole of the foot, it is normal for the folds to turn white after a long time of immersion. We don’t need to worry, it will slowly recover after leaving the water, which is basically good for our health. All are unaffected.
For example, the weather is getting colder now, and many people are beginning to choose to take a bath in the bathhouse, because the bathing time is too long, which leads to changes in the skin folds on their hands. It’s like taking a bath in a bathroom. It’s not good for too long. What should we pay attention to in our daily life ?
People who love to take a bath should take a bath in autumn and winter, what should they pay attention to ?
First of all, you should pay attention to the water temperature. Usually, the higher the water temperature, the shorter the bathing time, because common bathing may cause physical discomfort, and even produce fatigue and weakness. Under normal circumstances, choosing a water temperature of about 38 degrees is a temperature that can make people feel comfortable. Too high a temperature is dangerous for people with cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases. Usually , the water temperature of about 38 degrees can take a bath for about 25 minutes . If the water temperature reaches 40 degrees, it is recommended to take a bath for no more than ten minutes . The temperature of the water above 40 degrees is too high. People who are not in good health are not recommended to take a bath. A normal 42-degree bath for about four minutes is enough . You also need to pay attention to the amount of water your body enters when taking a bath. Usually, if the water exceeds the shoulders, the human body will be under too high pressure and will cause cardiopulmonary discomfort . Usually, it is a better choice to take a bath below the heart, mainly according to your own tolerance. Depending on your ability, if you feel unwell in the bath, stop taking a rest in time to avoid danger.
It is normal for skin folds on the fingers to appear in the bath, but it is necessary to pay attention to the pressure on the body when bathing for a long time, and those who are weak still need to control the time in time.
