    Sometimes I don’t shower if I know I’m going to be sitting around all day. Like today, haven’t showered. I brush my teeth in the morning. I also don’t shower on days that I have a migraine because the sound bothers me.

    Wow, based on this thread…i feel like i should start showering more often lol. Honestly, I skip showering daily a few times a week out of laziness. It’s a habit im trying to break bc my hair looks best when I shower daily

    I do occasionally skip on the weekends, but always shower daily Monday – Friday.

    @highschoolhoneys:  If I showered daily, my hair and skin would completely dry out – especially in the winter. In the summer I’ll usually shower every day unless i spend the day in ac and don’t get too hot n sweaty. Though summer is very brief in upstate ny, so I typically shower every other day (and don’t always wash my hair), unless I go to the gym or am particularly active in a day, in which I’d shower as soon as I get home. Ick. I don’t ever skip brushing my teeth though, and I’m ocd about washing my hands all the time. And I always have clean underwear/clothes on…lol

    I shower every other day – plus every day that I go to the gym.  Unless it’s summer. Then I shower every day – I get too sweaty.  But in the winter time I find there is no need to shower every day. I don’t smell! Honest!

    This is so interesting I never knew ppl voluntarily skipped showers but, everybody does it some more than others. When I have a lazy day and don’t plan on leaving the house or if I’m going through a drive through and of course when I’m sick.  I sweat,drool all types of stuff at not and unless I change my sheets everyday I feel like being clean getting into two day old sheets no bueno. For everyone who has sensitive skin that drys very easily do you guys use lotions,balms or butter to keep ur skin hydrated along with exfoliating?

    @highschoolhoneys:  This thread has totally opened my eyes to a whole new world.. I thought it was just a given that everyone showers at least once a day!

    Who knew! haha

    i’m a night shower-er, but I must do it daily.  My bed is pristine and I will not climb in if I am not clean!  I have eczema and have been told by a couple doctors that sometimes skipping showers may help my skin but I’ve found that showering more often means moisturizing more often, which generally yields nicer skin for me.  However, I rarely shower more than once a day.

    I shower everyday. I cannot imagine putting on clean clothes & going to work having not showered.

    I skip showers if I am sick or I am in a rush.

    I have not showered today because I took a long bath last night. I am feeling so lazy and tired just now, but I know I need to get off my ass and shower tonight. I will shower at night and the next morning if I am having my period or if I made love the night before. I don’t need to smell like sex or blood in public. Ewwwww! 

    I hate smelling dirty people, so I try not to be like them!

    I think americans are way too obsessed with perfect cleanliness, and so many seem to have the need to eraticate any smell that might be perceived as natural. in the winter, I skip showering every other day (if it’s also a day I did not work out) because I honestly don’t feel like it’s necessary, it’s hard on my skin, and I don’t like wasting water. I do wear deodorant and clean clothes on those days, I’m not a total hippie!

    I typically skip showers on my break days from my workout routine, but I work out on average 5 times a week, so I guess I tend to skip up to 2 days a week. I also tend to skip more on weekend days when I don’t have plans and just bumming around at home.
