I always believed that showering everyday was good for you and your body, but science may think differently. Some researchers believe that over-showering can damage the human microbiome, which is a collection of bacteria, viruses, and other microbes that live in and on our bodies. Showering too often disrupts our microbial ecosystems and can cause disease. According to Seventeen, James Hamblin gave up daily showering all together to see if it was a necessary. Hamblin claims that he was smelly at first but after a while he just smelled like a person. I’m not so sure about stopping showering completely, I personally like smelling fresh and clean. But showering less could be a positive lifestyle change; save time, money and water. Think about it.
