How many showers per day?
Eh? Its only January, my birthday’s not till summer!
More than one a day seems a lot to me, excluding after exercise. I’m a one a day, in the morning, type. If I’m not at work, and planning exercise, I leave it until after that.
If I’m away paddling/walking/biking I’m quite happy to go days without if in the proper wilds, with the occasional use of a stream and a very cold damp cloth!Posted 6 months agomattyfezMember
Excessive showering is actually bad for your hair and skin, as you are constantly bombarding yourself with cleaning products, stripping your skin and hair of natural oils.
Twice a day sounds excessive to me unless you’ve been heavily exercising or are physically soiled.Posted 6 months agoedhornbySubscriber
One a day for me too: usual routine is post bike-commute in work but sometimes I’ll have a Friday after work one if the commuting kit is minging, just a quick rinse.
A flannel in the evening when you wash yourself in the shape of the cross would be ok (unless groin armpit face are the areas OP s missus went to the GP)Posted 6 months agocheers_driveMember
Once a day with an addition after exercise if the two can’t be intergrated (eg get up, exercise, shower – that’s it for the day). Only exception if ‘dirty work’ necessitated another.
This, with shampooing every other day. If early start I’ll shower evening before unless it’s a hot night.Posted 6 months agowobbliscottMember
It’s not the showering that is the problem, it’s the chemical infested soap products we use when in the shower. I too suffer from skin irritations if I shower every day, so if I do shower I’ll try not to use any soap. If I’ve had a session in the gym there is no need for soap – a shower is fine as you’re washing your sweat off you. Post exercise smell comes from bacteria in your sweat so if you wash it off in a shower then you won’t smell afterwards. If I’ve been out on the bike I’ll shower with soap because I’m usually pretty mucky afterwards.Posted 6 months agoPeterPoddyMember
Not showing before bed if you share a bed is descusting
Not as bad as your spelling.
Any why is it?
I used to shower before bed but the was when I used to start work at 7am 6 days a week, and I preferred 10 minutes extra sleep. Now just once a day in the morning, even though I cycle to work (It’s only a 7 mile round trip)Posted 6 months ago
Very very occasionally I skip a day. I felt like crap the other week and just slobbed around all day. Couldn’t be arsed.spekkieMember
I’m a clean freak by comparison to you lot! 2 every day without fail and sometimes 3 or 4!
Shower every morning as soon as I get up, even if I’m going cycling. Shower again after riding and then have another one before bed. If I don’t shower before bed I sleep badly and wake early, feeling mingy.
Also, I would shower before getting dressed up and going out for the evening and shower again when I get home before bed, especially in the old days when people smoked in pubs and clubs.
In my defense, I have perfected the “Turbo-Shower” whereby I can wash my hair and body all over in 3 or 4 mins.Posted 6 months agohairyscarySubscriber
On a normal working day I will shower before work and that will be it for the day. If I had a physical job it would be twice a day…….when I was an aircraft fitter I would end up dripping with sweat just cracking off a set of nuts!Posted 6 months ago
If I’m doing any form of exercise I will shower immediately afterwards…….see above.HounsMember
Those oddballs that shower before bed but not in the morning…. Doesn’t it wake you up at night? Don’t you feel manky in the morning? Surely a shower in the morning wakes you up and makes you feel fresh for the day? If I don’t shower in the morning I feel grimy and sluggishPosted 6 months ago
