Hot water can be very hazardous for your health. Since mental health issues caused by hot water are still a debate we would like to focus on physical health issues.
What we mean by hot water is the temperature above 40°C (104°F). According to our research and interviews with dermatologists when you exceed 40°C (104°F), it is very harmful to your skin, hair, and heart.
According to Dr. Emily McKenzie, a dermatologist at the University of Utah, when you use hot water in the shower, a significant amount of oil and moisture is removed from your skin, which causes your skin to dry. The longer you stay in the shower, your skin is affected negatively. Therefore, taking short showers has a great benefit for your skin.
University of Pittsburgh Medical Center states that having short showers also helps your hair stay strong and shiny. The longer you stay in the shower and the hotter water you use, the more your hair weakens.
Hot water can dilate our blood vessels which causes our blood pressure to drop. When our blood pressure drops, our heart needs to work more to pump enough blood into our body. Therefore, this can cause some heart-related diseases in the future.
That's why we need to take lukewarm showers to prevent these health issues in the future.
