    OP it is probably THE most disgusting thing one can do in terms of cleanliness. Better change that bad habit.



    I totally get what you mean, but this is excessive and does harm your skin. Avoid showering more than twice a day.

    getting under the shower stream 4 times harms you?? ok
    Constantly washing off bacteria will lower your resistances to germs and illnesses, so yes, it's harming you.

    i didn't say i'm using soap, in the morning and evening i literally stand under water (not even on powerful or hot). i wash my hair once a week as well. and i haven't been ill since i was about 11, mostly just tired or the odd cold so it's clearly not doing too much harm.

    If it's working for you, then that's fine.

    I only ever wash my hair twice a week, it never really gets greasy and looks worse if I wash it every other day etc
    You wee frizz-munchkin

    Daren't say how often I wash mine :innocent:

    I shower every day. I'd feel really unfresh if I only washed my body twice a week :erm:
    Know what you mean but sometimes I'm so inactive I barely notice if I go a couple days without washing (granted this has a lot to do with the fact I tend to manage body temperature pretty closely given associated dysregulation in my condition + profuse sweating if I remotely overheat)

    I absolutely cannot stand going to bed all clammy! Hence, all this business

    It can.
    It's unnecessary because you're effectively washing away essential and protective oils and drying out your skin which could lead to all kinds of irritation and skin conditions.

    Twice a day is a completely unnecessary waste of water and energy, unless you have some kind of physical problem.

    Twice a week is more in line with older social norms, but probably isn't that socially acceptable today.
    In the day of my parents they said people would have a bath [showering was not 'invented' then] every Friday. It was normal, but people kept clean in other ways. Now days people shower more than twice a day, this is not ideal as the natural body oils are destroyed which are compulsory to keep skin moist.

    Don't worry dude. It's not healthy to have a shower/bath everyday and wastes water. If you know that you're not going to be seeing anyone then don't feel like you need to have a full body wash. Washing your face and brushing your teeth are fine for this. I'd say try to have one every other day and also when you're going out or seeing someone.

    a recent scientific enquiry into underarm flora revealed that our modern anti-perspirants remove "good" bacteria and allow immigrant opportunistic harmful bacteria to invade our nooks and crannies :eek:
