Shed problems

Haku
Hi ya’ll! My nearly 8 month old beardie, Haku, has been doing great since I got him a little over a month ago. However, I’m running into a constant problem. He will not stop shedding!
He’s been back to back shedding for nearly a month now. Started with his head, which went fine. His legs, which were fine for the most part (there’s still a part of his thigh on the back legs that has yet to come off) now his tail and back are shedding! I mist him several times a day with a mister, and bathe him almost every day while softly rubbing him with a soft sponge. The temps in his enclosure are all up to date, 93f and ~30 humidity on the hot side and 72f and ~25 humidity on the cold side. The humidity varies, but never does above 50 (except temporarily when I mist him)
He’s not a big fan of drinking water, but he gets his hydration through the green juice we make him (he won’t take leafy greens), the daily mistings, and from baths.
What should I do? Is there not enough humidity? Should I put a humidifier in my room? Am I doing something wrong?

He's growing, they shed almost constantly until they reach full size. Let him do his thing. Also don't bath him so often, it can cause problems. Also if he don't get a chance to dry completely it could cause bacteria to grow under his scales.

You want humidity that's what helps the shed -- blaze pretty much shedded all summer

I am new and looking for a teen beardie. I have been doing a lot of research for about 2 years.
I'm new here but not new to dragons or snakes. Over the 7 years. I opened my heart and home to neglected. unwanted dras and snakes, some critical conditions. Then nursing them back to health and their final family home. I regularly help my reptiles vet with emergency appointments and I also provide the care in my little quenteen,
