What is your reasoning for only showering once a week?

I’ve seen posts where too many people admit to this. What are your reasons?

Same here. (Born in The Caribbean). We showered daily growing up and I shower daily now. I just don’t understand how people can just be ok with not showering.

Quoting Twinklesthecat: Lol I have 4 kids under six and I still find the time to shower twice a day even if it means bringing the two youngest to shower with me or getting up at 4am to shower and showering 12am at night.but I was born in the Caribbean and lived there till I was 8 and everyone showered daily because off how hot it is .

I bathe/shower 2x a week that is Dr recommended. If you feel you need to bathe more than that just wash under the arms & the nether regions. Anymore and really you dry your skin out which is why people tend to spend a lot for moisturizers. (Lotions, moisturizing soaps etc)

When I was younger and working, I showered every day. As I got older, and became diabetic, my skin is so dry. I only shower every two to three days in the winter. Also the only heat in my batheroom is a heat lamp, so I have a small heater and it takes quite a while to warm the bathroom enough to shower. In the summer I shower ever other day as I sweat more. I do take sponge baths each day.

I have to take a shower right before bed everynight. If I dont i feel off and cant comfortably go to sleep.

I couldnt shower only once a week. But my skin and hair are dry so I only shower M-W-F during the week. I will shower on T or Th if I have an important meeting or just feel gross in teh morning. On the weekends it depends on what we are doing if I shower one day, both days, or niether day.

How do you stand to smell yourself? Hygiene isn't to "impress" anyone. What's sad is these disgusting habits are being taught to children.

Quoting Anonymous 5: I shower about once a week when my DH is gone at work for a few weeks. He's not here and I have no one to impress.

There are people who do this but showering too much removes the natural oils on your skin and hair which makes your skin and scalp dry out
