I see there is a move toward more environmentally-friendly products and packaging.
Meanwhile, the ‘cleansing reduction’ movement has spanned to showering and bathing less, as people realise that over-washing isn’t good for the planet or the skin.
I usually bath or shower every other day. I am sure as a child it was only twice a week???
Are any of you bathing or showering every day?
How often do you wash your hair?
You are all going to cringe but I usually bathe twice a day. Once in the morning and again before bedtime. My hair however only gets washed at most twice weekly. I paint my fingernails & toenails too; not that you asked.
I am not cringing, I am the same if it is hot. I do understand the latest advice though. I am agreeing that many chemicals used in soaps etc are not good for us really.
I sometimes paint my nails too - So there:lol:
When I was growing up I was only allowed a small bath a week , in and out a quick wash as there were 9 of us . When I was in lodgings at 16 I was allowed one small bath a week , when I look back I suppose I wasn’t really clean . Now I love my showers and baths and nice bubbles and perfumes .
I think people are definitely showering less and nothing to do with the environment. They simply focus on social media instead of hygiene.
I have to wash my hair every day. When I wake it’s all over the place as it’s naturally very wavy but I like it neat. I don’t feel ready to face the real world until I have washed and blown it dry and put my make up on. I used to also straighten my hair with tongs for about ten years but I’ve weaned myself off that.
If I was retired I wouldn’t care so much, would probably sit in a dressing gown with wild hair and drink tea all day - bliss!
Social media instead of hygiene ???
That might be true in the case of young children .
My grandson is loathe to leave his computer for anything M
Dirty little tyke!
I like to shower most days its makes you feel nice and fresh but an all over wash will do the same .
Not really into baths anymore.
