Now that I'm retired, I don't shower every day unless I'm planning to go outside. But I try to shower at least every other day.

Fuck no. In the wintertime, when it is very cold here, I shower every other day. Showering every day in 10 degree weather is terrifically bad for the skin, ladies. I would think you queens would know that.

R5 Never heard of that. I know some people smell good even without showering for 5 days, by the way. I don't see what's so disgusting about abstaining from showering for extended periods as long as you don't stink and you're not filthy.

That's tragic thing about winter, R5. I usually shower more than once a day around this time, just to warm up, and my skin is a wreck for it.

Yes. Because if I don't, I'm gross.
Same with my hair... I can't even go outside until I wash it. I wake up with serious bed-head. There is no way I could possibly skip a day.

R5, why not just use some of the lotions from Kiehls on your skin after you shower? Whether or not one showers one HAS to moisturize during the cold weather.

The question is sort of clear.
If you were just going to lounge around the house all day. If you were not going to have quests over. If there no plans whatsoever to leave the comfort of your home.
Would you go without a shower?
If you're not going anywhere or going to receive callers, who gives a fuck if you have bedhead? Or a little ripe under your sack?

Every work day. If I'm not seeing anybody or doing anything on the weekend I might skip a Saturday or a Sunday if I haven't sweated heavily. Ball caps handle the hair. I'd say I shower most days, weekends included but I don't have a mental breakdown if I skip one.

I shower each day Monday through Friday and again on Saturday if I go to the gym. However, if I don't go to the gym on Saturday and I'm planning to stay in the house and not go anywhere on Saturday, then sometimes I don't shower.
On Sunday, I'm back at the gym, so I shower, But if I don't leave the house on Sunday, I sometimes don't shower.
But who's going to know? I live alone.

As Mary Jo Shively said to Suzanne Sugarbaker on 'Designing Women' when Mary Jo admitted she didn't shower that particular day, and Suzanne commented with disapproval, "Suzanne, I took care of things."

No, more like every third day. A side benefit is I think the musky odor that builds up is sexy. No, I don't think or expect anyone else to agree, but I have seen others talk about how they like letting that "man smell" build up too.

In the warmer months, usually more than once a day. During the winter, I will sometimes skip a day if I'm staying home and don't have plans to meet anyone.
I once went 4 days without a shower because I had a back injury. I felt so disgusting on the last day that even though it was difficult, I took a shower anyway.

So almost before you're dry from the last shower, you're taking (yet) another? Fucking hell, that scarcely leaves any time in the day for anything else.

For all of the water freaks - how long do you spend in each of your multiple daily showers?

If I'm not leaving the house and I'm just lounging around and not doing anything that's making me sweat, then I don't shower that day (unless I feel like it). However, I do wash my face.
I'm lazy, so showering is a chore for me.

If you're American, were you taught as a child that resources, including water, are finite, or at least scarce? Did you always turn off the lights, radio, TV, etc. before leaving the house? As a student I worked for an exchange program in Ireland, and many of the Americans were known to take 45-minute showers.

Washing my hair, not every day. Usually actual shampoo on my hair every third day, and just rinsing it with water one day in between.

The bigger question for DL'ers is this:
Are you a person who showers or bathes...and do you shower before leaving the house, or are you still doing the bath the night before as if you're a kid?
I don't understand how people can bathe the night before....every person I've worked with that did that stank, and thought they didn't. Bacteria grows overnight, and it's bacteria that gives you body odor.

My showers are not long ones. It doesn't take long to scub the dirt away. Three showers are necessary for me. I never go to bed without showering. I never go to work without showering. I never exercize without showering after. I'm sure I'm not alone.

R33/R52. You're a bit obsessive. I doubt there is much 'dirt to scrub away' at bedtime after showering in the morning and after excercizing, in which those first two showers are entirely understandable.

Every other. I don't sweat like some people. I wash my face and (especially) my hands several times a day, though.
I shave in the shower. I look good with bedhead and scruff. I don't wear cologne or deodorant, either. Little is as unpleasant to me as a perfumed poodle of a man.
Anyone who's ever commented on how I smell has told me how much they like it. I think I lucked out, pheromone-wise. I had a boyfriend who'd've liked for me not to shower ever. The most I'd go was three days, and if he was good, I'd let him lick my balls just before I took a shower.

I remember that weird hairdresser who used to be on What Not to Wear who suggested not washing your hair but once a year. It was like a religion to him--a greasy hair religion. Luckily, his weirdo advice never caught on with the public and he was dropped from the show.

My "program" is to shower every other day to save water (I live in southern California where the water bill can go sky high if you don't watch it) and sponge/washcloth at the sink from the waist up on "off" days as well as splash with soap and water the body parts "in need" (need one mention the ass?) from the waist down in the tub. So I guess that would leave my hair getting a quick shampoo every other day unless I do it in the sink if it needs it. I suppose someone will find fault with this regimen, but it works for me. To brush my teeth I put a small gob on for lowers, do that, then a small gob for the uppers, do that, use Listerine (especially with the flu going around), floss, then use the water pik.
