A lot has been spoken on the precious body part, 'belly'. From reducing belly fat to the transformation of belly during pregnancy, much has been discussed regarding bellies. But the general show stealer, the belly button has been ignored strangely over the years. To an extent that most of us have been cleaning it the wrong way for years.
Well sure according to surveys women prefer men with larger bellies, but it would be better if the belly button is as clean as possible!
"Health providers have removed 'growths' from belly buttons that turned out to be a mix of bacteria, dirt, sweat, soap, lotions, and lint. Talk about an embarrassing doctor's visit-they go in for what they think is skin cancer and find out it's just years of dirt."
...the average navel is swarming with 67 different species of bacteria. Eww!
Simply showering will remove some germs, lint, etc. There's no extra cosmetic or soap required. Showering keeps it pretty clean and infection-free. Digging in once a week with a cotton swab that has soap and water or rubbing alcohol on it works wonders as well.
Again, no creams, no oils, no lotions. A soapy washcloth once a week will do the job in the perfect way.
Visit your primary care doctor or dermatologist immediately. They'll dig in with the proper process and equipment.
Just a bit of showering and your belly button is good to flaunt!
