Even though most people shower once – if not twice – a day, our bodies are actually designed to be washed just once or twice each week.

Researchers admit that this is unusual and understand that people shower each day mostly for “aesthetic reasons.”

But, they have also found that the more you bathe, the weaker your skin gets, which leaves you at a higher risk of an infection.

If you want to maximize your good health, shower once or twice a week, use very little soap, and wash your hands regularly.
