If you are one of those people who shower everyday, you shouldn't be!

According to two dermatologists, the real reason people are showering daily is because of societal norms and good advertising that started way back in the '20s and '30s. Turns out, Americans are pretty gullible when it comes to that sort of thing.

Showering too much can actually do more harm than good. Hot water can dry out and irritate skin, wash out all the good bacteria, and create cracks that leave you open to infection.

The dermatologists recommended showering every 48-72 hours. But, if you're one of those people who feels like you are just too dirty and smelly to avoid the daily shower, you can actually just clean the grossest parts of yourself with a washcloth, instead of full-on showering.

As a woman, I can tell you that showering is much more of a chore for the ladies than it is for the guys. That's because it's not just one quick wash and you're done. Nooooooooo - it's hair washing and shaving and the entire process afterwards, like moisturizing, blow-drying, etc. I found a funny post to back me up on Elite Daily. :)

Stay clean, friends!
