10 Reasons You Shouldn’t Shower Every Day

A few years ago, I wrote a post about how I don’t shower every day, and how annoying it is to deal with people who think I should be showering every day. Apparently, that post was ahead of it’s time, because showering daily is a big topic of discussion at the moment. A few days ago, Buzzfeed wrote an article about how two dermatologists said we don’t need to shower every day. Yesterday, Naya Rivera went in a different direction, and made a comment that makes no sense about how showering every day is a “white people thing.”

So, what’s the verdict? You don’t need to shower every day. In fact, you shouldn’t shower every day because it’s not good for you. Personally, I’m thrilled to hear this. I don’t think there was ever a time in my life when I showered every single day. I just don’t have the time! My hair is very high-maintenance, and washing it every day would mean drying it every day, which would mean I would literally never be able to make it to anything. I try to shower (washing hair and all) only two to three times a week. The only time I do it more often than that is when I’m working out. If I’ve just hit the gym, I’ll jump in the shower to wash my body without getting my hair wet.

A lot of people find this “gross.” If you’re one of those people, keep reading, because I’m about to prove you wrong. If you’re not one of those people, keep reading, because I’m about to give you information you can shove in someone’s face when they raise their eyebrows at the fact that you didn’t shower that morning. Here are 10 reasons why you definitely shouldn’t shower every day: 

Do you shower every day? How often do you shower? Do you agree or disagree with me? Tell me in the comments.
