I've been showering almost every day for a very long time now and I haven't noticed any change in my skin's health. Just saying.

Can't really compare until you've tried not bathing for a while :P

Aye. I used to think my friends' not washing their hair was nasty, but now I do it and actually get more compliments on how nice my hair is. I'd try not showering, but at the end of a day I'm literally covered in filth. So, I take as little shower as possible.

Yeah, I've heard that hair sans shampoo (after a few months) is actually really really good...

I shower once a day. Twice if I did some strenuous activity or if I had a pretty uhh... riveting bathroom experience.

Isn't it supposed to be better if you don't use soap and just wash with water? Like after so long you body returns to its natural ways - which can't smell too bad thanks to evolution, or else pre-soap people would have never found mates.

It could very well make the people around him sick! :P Last year in my college dorm there were a few people who rarely showered. The entire hall started smelling like their BO. It was painful.

Being around people that do not bathe is very unpleasant.

I know a girl who showers every other day and doesn't wash her hair for like five days even though her hair is really greasy. It's gross.

The skin health claim relates to how dry your skin is - the more exposure to water in general, the drier your skin gets. (but this doesn't mean don't shower after chlorine exposure, that's one case where you definitely want to shower and use lotion afterwards - my brother brought lotion to school during the swimming unit and all the guys shared with him!)

But... People tend to like being around you more if you shower/bathe. In the case of your friend, this means GIRLS. If he's interested.

Yuck.

I shower twice a day, you can tell which people don't shower because they just look greasy and horrid.

Or have dermatitis like me and ruins their hair image because of it. :<

I don't ever bathe.

I shower :D

up until recently, on a nightly basis or else I'd feel god awful about myself. But more recently I noticed I have better hair days if I skip a shower every here and there. But I do shower every day for the most part.

Showering too often is bad for your skin, so I try to shower four days a week, sometimes 1-2 more if gym days fall on a non-shower day, so every other day, with two one right after the other.

I shower every day In the morning and after practice. If I don't, my hair is just long enough that it will start to clump together and look messy/greasy.

Going more than a day or two without showering is disgusting IMO. I wish your friend the best of luck on his long, dirty, and smelly journey.

The amount people think they need to bathe is absolutely ridiculous. Until the soap opera commercials (which is where the term comes from btw) in the 50's it was considered narcissistic to bathe more than once a week.

Also, if you're out camping for any length of time, you're better off not bathing as it will help keep bugs away.

I bathe once a day, sometimes I skip if I'm clean enough.

I can't believe people shower twice a day on average. Ridiculous.

Glad I didn't live before the '50s then. People [bleep]ing stink if they haven't bathed in the past 48 hours, easily. I think some people just don't realize how bad they smell.

...anyone else notice how bad Gamestops smell of B.O.? Or maybe that's just the one I visit but... yeah.

I'd rather not sleep in layers of dried sweat after practices and games :P

Not gonna lie. I picked my name for a reason. If we were in a bus together I would probably offend many of your nostrils, but my female-comrade finds my bird-cage scent attractive so I'm not complaining. I just don't know - it's the one niche in my life where I feel no shame nor empathy towards any of the people I may have hurt. I'm proud of who I am.
