This Is How Often You Should Be Showering - According To Science

According to a recent study published in ‘Time’, showering too often is bad for your skin. Here’s the ideal shower frequency.

Let’s hope that your deodorant is efficient, cause according to Dr. Elaine Larson the ideal shower frequency is... twice a week. ‘I think showering is mostly for aesthetic reasons. People think they’re showering for hygiene or to be cleaner, but bacteriologically, that’s not the case,’ says the Colombia University professor.

Certain body parts require more hygiene

The human body generates bacteria that are good for our skin. Showering too often disrupts the bacteria population and can strip your skin of its natural oils. ‘Your body is naturally a well-oiled machine. A daily shower isn’t necessary,' adds Dr. C. Brandon Mitchell. However, you should still practice proper hygiene. If you shower twice a week only, your face, your intimate body parts and your hands need more regular care.
