People think they’re showering for hygiene or to be cleaner, but bacteriologically, that’s not the case.
Most experts seem to agree that over-bathing can actually open you up to more problems - things like cracked skin that allows germs to get in, the stripping away of healthy oils and the washing away of good bacteria.
Dr C Brandon Mitchell, assistant professor of dermatology at George Washington University, believes that from a purely health-based point of view, showering once or twice a week is sufficient.
Your body is naturally a well-oiled machine. A daily shower isn’t necessary.
If you want to keep odour away, however, then you might want to do it a little more often than that.
