    I understand what they are trying to say. I know that these authors have done their research, and know what they are talking about. However, my lifestyle calls for more frequent showering. I have anywhere from 1-4 hours of dance practice every night Monday-Thursday. I leave the class sweaty and tired, and I feel like I need a refreshing shower, not just baby wipes. This would be excellent advice otherwise.

    There should be a less than 1 week option, maybe 1 every 2 weeks.

    our kids grew up on a ranch ,took a bath if they got filthy dirty,never sick. there cousins lived in the city bathed once sometimes twice a day if they got a speck of dirt on them, they were sick all the time, no immune system

    Everyone must live in the US, they don't care about water consumption, do research, grow a heart, don't take shit for granted, because I guarantee if you're in a "zombie apocalypse" you won't be taken showers everyday.

    Man with EXCELLENT hygiene but very poor aim!
    That you pee all around and over you doesn't mean everyone does :-)

    As a truck driver I can't shower every day. I do use baby wipes daily on critical body areas, and shower once a week. My teenaged girls agree that I don't smell bad, and believe me , they'd let me know if I did!

    I am 33 and have been a twice a week or so bather for most of my life (more when I am truly dirty) and simply wipe down areas of concern (groin, pits) with a clean rag and warm water inbetween showers. I have near perfect skin and no abnormal oder about me. I live in the Deep South and have a manual job and that still doesn't make me gross. I will point out that if you convert to a less showering schedule, your skin will be very gross until it adjusts, but it should level out.

    This doctor has been lied too! You poop, pee, and walk everyday, that's enough to shower at least once daily like I do because I am normal! When you pee(men only) it goes everywhere, arms, legs, FACE. My personal input but nobody ever said I smelled like crap, my momma taught me good hygiene.

    My sons just stayed 3 days with my in-laws and they (my in-laws) were displeased, to say the least, that my sons do not shower every day. I decided to research the issue and am relieved to find that I am NOT a horrible mother. If my child is not smelly or dirty, he doesn't need to shower every day. Amen!

    The Author has obviously never lived in humid, Dusty, tropical parts of West Africa . Maybe this is a 1st world analysis ... Lool.

    At 65 my skin is very different from when I was 30. Body wipes are a godsend for the necessary cleanliness without drying my skin further, especially here in Arizona. Using pH balanced skin products without other additives also helped.

    Thank you for the information.

    Hot humid climates necessitates bathing at least TWICE DAILY if only because it makes you feel more comfortable and alive...!!!
