GROSS or GOOD? Quitting Bathing Becomes Latest Trend

The Guardian claims a growing number of people around the world have decided to quit bathing!

Many believe that common skin problems are caused by modern soaps and skincare products. They have decided to let bacteria clean them naturally instead.

Cambridge, Massachusetts resident David Whitlock says he has not bathed or showered in 15 years. “It was kind of strange for the first few months, but after that, I stopped missing it. If I get a specific part of my body dirty, then I’ll wash that specific part.”

Lifestyle guru Sarah Ballantyne says she is comfortable living a ‘stone age’ lifestyle. “I use coconut oil to shave and that’s it. Over time, my skin has adjusted. I don’t smell.”

It is not known for certain whether over-washing with soaps and other products actually causes negative effects.

I couldn’t imagine not taking a shower every day. I also have to wash my hair every day otherwise it’s not good news. What about YOU?? Let me know how you feel in the comments below!
