Unfortunately, it’s pretty clear that things start to get gnarly after just two days of skipping your shower.

The person to be cleansed must wash his clothes, shave off all his hair and bathe with water; then he will be ceremonially clean. After this he may come into the camp, but he must stay outside his tent for seven days. On the seventh day he must shave off all his hair; he must shave his head, his beard, his eyebrows and the rest of his hair. He must wash his clothes and bathe himself with water, and he will be clean. (Leviticus 14:8-9)
God, the Living God is very practical.

(higherperspectives.com)—Many of us have had that one friend or roommate that just didn’t think it was necessary to take showers or maintain their personal hygiene. After a while, it gets pretty gross.
You start to emit foul-smelling body odors, your hair becomes super greasy, and sometimes your skin will start breaking out simply because of all of the filth accumulating on your epidermis.
I personally shower about every other day, although I used to be an avid every-morning showerer. Unfortunately, it’s pretty clear that things start to get gnarly after just two days of skipping your shower.
A lot of people like to start their day with a shower. It wakes you up and gets you off to a fresh, clean start. Starting every day off with a shower is a good habit to get into.
This can not be said for babies, however. Their skin is very sensitive and does not function the same as ours just yet. They should only be bathed one to two times per week.
Washing your hair is another story. Most people benefit from only washing their hair about twice per week, so you don’t make it too dry and delicate. Letting your natural oils take over once in awhile is good for the hair.
The body is constantly creating new bacteria that lives on the skin. At any given time, there is about 1,000 different kinds of bacteria, and about 40 types of fungus, living on the skin. This might sound gross at first, but these bacteria are good for us and make sure we’re healthy.
