Congratulations.


You're doing it wrong.



Not only are you stripping your skin of necessary natural oils and therefore drying it out, but you're also killing the good bacteria living on your skins surface. And you really think that you're getting clean? You're just moving around the bad bacteria from one place to another. Enjoy having bad skin.

I work out 1-2 a day. I shower daily as a public service.

A sponge bath is just as effective without harming your skin. Wet washcloth to the necessary regions.

I refuse to go to bed covered in horse hair, it could literally kill my dh. I will shower twice a day.

I enjoy showering, and my skin is just fine, but thank you.

I shower every other day.  If I shower every single day I get itchy.

I shower daily because I work out daily and am really sweaty afterwards.  I don't see the difference between having a sponge bath vs hopping in the shower quickly.  I have awesome skin, no worries there.  Whatever works for you.
