Is It Worthless to Shower With Soap? One Dermatologist Says Yes

Is It Worthless to Shower With Soap? One Dermatologist Says Yes

Let’s hope none of your coworkers hear this and get inspired to try it out.

There’s a dermatologist at the University of Toronto named Sandy Skotnicki, and she’s currently working on a book that makes a pretty wild claim: You don’t need soap.

Quote, “If you go to work, dress in a long-sleeve shirt and pants, you’re in your office all day and you go home, there’s no reason for you to use soap. Even if you’ve been at the gym, you don’t necessarily need soap . . . water is more than enough to clean off.”

She says we’re not getting anywhere close to as dirty as we think we are.

And modern soaps are so filled with chemicals that they’re doing more damage to our skin than good. They’re just making us itchy and don’t even do a particularly good job at getting the bacteria off of us.

So should you EVER use soap? Sure, if you’re actually dirty . . . but if you’re showering with it daily, it’s really unnecessary.

Six Scientifically proven tricks to good job interviews/first dates

Six Scientifically proven tricks to good job interviews/first dates

We’ve got six job interview tricks for you that are all backed by science. And most of them seem like they’d probably work on a first date too . . .

1. Visualize a good interview. Studies have shown that athletes do better when they visualize themselves doing well. And it works with interviews too.

2. Stop saying you’re “nervous” beforehand, and start saying you’re “excited.” Anxiety and excitement are similar emotions. If you tell yourself out loud that you’re “excited” instead of “nervous,” it actually calms you down.

3. Have a ritual before each interview. It can be something small, like listening to the same song before you go in. Studies have shown that rituals can reduce your heart rate, help you concentrate, and make you feel more in control.

4. Start with small talk. Like the weather, or how crazy traffic was on your way over. Studies have found you’re more likely to get a job if you start out with some meaningless chitchat, because it builds trust.

5. Get ready to brag. Studies have found women tend to be more reluctant to do it than men. One trick is to pretend you’re bragging about a friend instead of yourself.

6. Don’t over-rehearse for it. You’ll sound scripted if you do. Plus, making a mistake isn’t always a bad thing. There’s something called the “pratfall effect,” where you actually seem MORE likeable if you make a mistake or trip over a word.

A Guy Quits His Job With a Resignation Letter Written on Toilet Paper

A Guy Quits His Job With a Resignation Letter Written on Toilet Paper

Now THIS is how you burn a bridge on the way out of a job.

A woman just posted a picture on Reddit of her husband’s resignation letter from his job. And it’s a unique one . . . because he wrote it on toilet paper.

And just to make sure his company understood that symbolism, he wrote, quote, “I have chosen this type of paper . . . as a symbol of how I feel this company has treated me and . . . where I feel this company is going.”

Men Are More Likely to Cry After a Bad Performance Review

Men Are More Likely to Cry After a Bad Performance Review

Want to make a grown man cry? Tell him he’s only so-so at his job.

According to a new study, men are more likely than women to cry after a performance review at work. 25% of men say they’ve cried after one, versus 18% of women.

Men are also more likely to storm out of their review and quit. 28% of men have quit after a bad review, versus 11% of women.

The study also found two-thirds of both employees and managers think formal performance reviews are outdated and a waste of time.

And 55% think all performance reviews should be eliminated.

Five Small Ways to Be Healthier This Year

Five Small Ways to Be Healthier This Year

If you’re trying to be healthier this year, here are five small changes that don’t require much effort.  But they can actually make a difference . . .

  1.   Start calling yourself a “runner.”  Or if you like tennis, start referring to yourself as a “tennis player.”  A study at Winona University in Minnesota found that giving yourself a label like that encourages you to do the activity more, regardless of what it is.
  2.   Make sure you get a good night’s sleep on Tuesdays.  A recent study found it’s the night we’re most LIKELY to get a good night’s sleep, because we’re less likely to drink or stay out late.  So try not to waste it.
  3.   Put a plant on your desk at work.  It makes you more productive, and it can increase job satisfaction by 20%.  So it’s an easy way to boost your MENTAL health.
  4.   Record yourself brushing your teeth.  If you do it every other day for about two weeks, your technique should get better.
  5.   Wash your reusable water bottle every day.  It seems like you shouldn’t have to since you’re only putting water in there.  But it can actually get pretty disgusting if you don’t.  Bacteria from your hands and mouth can get in there and then multiply.

So either toss it in the dishwasher every night, or let it soak in water that’s mixed with a little bit of vinegar or bleach.
