    It's actually fine to only shower once a week...

    During the pandemic, some of us may have been showering less (perhaps much less) even as we spent more time sanitizing surfaces (well, at first). As we recalibrate to the new normal, let’s take a look at our cleanliness routines and figure out what we actually need to do every day—and what we can skip.
    Shower as needed

    There’s no law of nature that says a person needs exactly one shower per day; how often you need to wash yourself depends on how sweaty, stinky, or dirty you are getting. If you do a sweaty workout twice a day, for example, you may prefer to shower twice a day. And the opposite is true: if your daily activities don’t leave you feeling particularly gross on a daily basis, you might rather shower once or twice a week. There’s no health-related reason to shower every day, so you can decide for yourself based on how dirty you feel.

    Oh no!

    Showering should be a daily activity.

    Love that cute little turtle!

    Washing more than once a fortnight will wash away the natural body oils you need to insure you are receiving all the nutrients you require. Not to mention it can lead to a waste of water, raise your electrical usage, adding to global warming and is probably systemically racist.

    Political tags - such as royalist, communist, democrat, populist, fascist, liberal, conservative, and so forth - are never basic criteria. The human race divides politically into those who want people to be controlled and those who have no such desire.

    Shower once of week?

    Yeah. Zoom calls would have to suffice, 6 days a week.

    The price of perfume and bath powders would surely increase.
