    To be fair, unless you work at a coal mine there's absolutely no reason to take three baths a day.
    I like taking them, I enjoy taking baths. Well technically it's not a 'bath'...I'm talking about showers. I take one in the morning to wake me up, one at about 4 to feel clean, then 1 at night to put me to sleep. On fridays I have actual baths with bubbles and candels I like water and baths. I might go take a bubble bath right now actually....

    No wonder why you complain about dry skin
    Only on my face, but then I do have dry skin naturally anyway. Who cares when you have access to moisturiser

    Showering more than twice a day does more harm than good if you live a regular lifestyle. You rid your body of natural oils which leads to dry brittle skin.
    I would suggest you shower once every morning on regular days, but if you go on a day trip or are pretty active, showering a second time when you get home is standard too.
    It's not possible.I can't do it. I have tried but it doesn't work. I feel dirty.

    Actually I'm so used to talking showers 2-3 times a day I forget it may not be the 'norm'. But tbf 2 is pretty normal to me. It's really not that excessive, I mean if I took 6 a day then I clearly have problems. 3 isn't bad!

    It's really not! I don't think it is. It's always been normal to me, my mum showers twice a day. Only my brother showers every few days which I find repulsive...

    It should be with that much bathing. That is mad excessive.

    Do you sleep in a pool of vaseline post your 30minute pre-bed moisturising ritual?

    You're not supposed to shower everyday let alone twice a day.

    Oh and @ OP.

    When you get desperate enough. Like me. Standards just go out the window one by one. At the moment my only standard is that she is a nice person. Open minded. And not massively fat. Oh and obviously hygienic. but really that's not asking for much. I ignore pretty much everything else.

    One.

    Maybe a brief cold second shower if I have been sweating a lot later in the day but not normally.

    Really isn't safe or recommended to take a shower twice a day everyday.


    It can cause a lot of damage to the hair. That's ridiculous and just compulsive.

    Don't doubt yourself. If man were to accept what they had, we as a species wouldn't be where we are today. Don't feel disheartened aiming at the high end of the market and not succeeding. Keep hammering at it, you'll find a lovely guy

    Its normal to you, but I can assure you its not the standard norm.
    If its not hurting you, drying out your skin, fine. But you really must admit that 3 bath's a day is a lot.

    Still, with the frigid freezing weather in the long run it can cause itchy, parched skin, or aggravated conditions like dermatitis and eczema. It also gets rid of good bacteria and increase risk of infection.

    That's ridiculous and compulsive, you should wash every 2-3 days tops.
