do you shower daily? (be honest!)

obviously if you have a very newborn or you're ill then maybe a might miss a day, but generally speaking do you shower (or bath) every day? I do, but sometimes I might shower in the morning one day but then not shower next until the next evening, if I have a gym session or exercise class planned. I do wear deodorant and clean clothes daily but too many showers irritate my skin and are just a faff. grim, or not grim?

Yes I do, I get smelly if I don't. I have got quite a keen sense of smell too so really notice if I get a bit stinky.

What's with the shower threads at the moment?

Shower as much or as little as you like.

I shower every day because I have to wash my hair every day. The only time I wouldn't shower is if I felt unwell and didn't plan on leaving the house.

Oh and no, I don't think your grim.

Every single morning, and occasionally when I come home from work.

I shower everyday.

I cannot get dressed if i havent showered first. If im running late, i still have to shower.

No I don't shower everyday as I have dry skin which gets very dry and painful especially with central heating on.
I don't think it is necessary even if my skin were better to shower daily unless you have a very physical job/hobby.

No. I shower every 2-4 days. My hair can't stand being washed too often. Also, I'm not a particularly smelly or sweaty person. I wear deodorant or course. I don't even wash my face every day as I find that everyday washing makes it go very dry, then oil overload and then mega spots.

If I'm on a workout binge, I'll shower after a workout (but might wear my polka dot shower cap so I don't have to wash my hair).

TinyTear Thu 28-Nov-13 11:37:57

shower every morning but sometimes only wash my hair 5 or 6 times a week skipping one day

Nope. Every other day here. A good wash on the "off" days though.

I shower every night before bed, I cannot sleep if I don't and then most mornings too.

I wash my hair only when it needs it though, otherwise I would get though too much hair dye to keep up my bright colour

burberree Thu 28-Nov-13 11:40:16

no I don't shower everyday - so many threads on this lately - then of course you get those clean freaks who will come on and tell you how they shower three times a day and wipe with femfresh inbetween times.....
freaky i tell you!

FoxMulder Thu 28-Nov-13 11:41:07

Twice. Once in the morning and once after work. Sleeping makes me sweaty. Work makes me sweaty too. Only once a day at the weekends though!

FoxMulder Thu 28-Nov-13 11:42:20

I'm really not a clean freak, I just stink after a while smile

MrsMoon76 Thu 28-Nov-13 11:45:34

I shower most days, usually in the evening as I hate going to bed if I am not clean, however I wash my hair every second day.

I really shouldn't shower every day as I have very dry skin that actually started to thin a couple of years ago shock It was awful and I did cut back then under doctor's orders. I think its worse in winter tbh with central heating. If I am at the gym I shower there and don't bother in the evening.

I love showers (though the hot water damages my skin)

Saminthemiddle Thu 28-Nov-13 11:46:53

I shower every morning without fail, it wakes me up too.

MrsMoon76 Thu 28-Nov-13 11:47:16

BTW my DH wouldn't shower for a week if he could get away with it (he doesn't) but we have compromised on every second day - annoying thing is that he just doesn't smell at all.

spiderlight Thu 28-Nov-13 11:50:50

Every morning without fail! I ccan't function without my morning shower.

Nancy66 Thu 28-Nov-13 11:51:50

nearly always. Only time I wouldn't would be if I had weekend to myself with no kids and then I just stay in my pyjamas the whole time. Bliss. Only happens about once a year though.

eurochick Thu 28-Nov-13 11:52:48

Every morning without fail and again later if I have been to the gym or am going out.

HesterShaw Thu 28-Nov-13 11:56:24

Euro you are discusting! You should shower after lunch too wink

FeisMom Thu 28-Nov-13 12:00:06

Yes every morning without fail, I feel sweaty and crusty if I don't. I wash my hair every other day.

In the summer or on heavy period days I shower or bathe in the evening before bed too.

JRmumma Thu 28-Nov-13 12:00:35

Mrsmoon by dh is the same! Its so annoying that he doesn't smell!

I shower or bath every other day and wash in between at the sink, hands, face feet, pits and bits. My skin is super dry. Do shower more in the height of summer though, although try to only have a quick hose down to remove sweat rather than a full scrub so my skin doesn't dry out too much.

ouryve Thu 28-Nov-13 12:02:08

No. I shower or bathe 4 or 5 times a week, unless it's very hot or I'm having a run of hot flushes. I don't wash m hair every day, or else it ends up like wire wool.
