The changing face of beauty

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?

Re: The changing face of beauty

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 really like being clean.

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

I shower Monday to Friday after my swim, but not on the W/E unless I'm all hot and sweating. Hair is done during my shower to get the Chlorine out of it.

Oh good. I use all natural cleansing products for both my body and my hair and use coconut oil on both.

Re: The changing face of beauty

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 love the smell of coconut. I hate the taste. I use coconut body butter.
I also saw that less water is to be used in beauty products. That natural is the new trend. This should mean cheaper products.

Re: The changing face of beauty

I can remember sitting on the kitchen draining board for a wash ... I was quite a bit smaller then.
