Four in every five women don’t shower every day

Are you one of them?

Four out of five women admit they don’t have daily showers and a third say they go for up to three days without washing, says a new survey.

Health researchers found just 21 per cent of women take the time to shower or bathe every day — and one in eight don’t brush their teeth before going to bed.

And two thirds can’t be bothered to take off make-up before sleeping.


Eighty-nine per cent of women claimed they would like to improve their body hygiene but blame evening and morning tiredness, according to a survey carried out by skincare range Flint Plus Flint.

Pollsters also found a third of the women who go to bed without removing their make-up said it was because they didn’t have the time.

Flint Plus Flint boss Maxine Flint said: “I understand the appeal of a lie-in but skipping a morning wash is both anti-social for the people around us and unhealthy.

“We are talking about routines that literally take minutes out of your day. It’s true that today’s pace of life is fast but surely as a nation we haven’t become too busy to wash.

“We were alarmed to hear about the number of women not looking after their skin by following basic skin care regimes.

“It is so important to clean your face daily and moisturise to slow down the ageing process.

“Furthermore, the majority of women know the importance of following a skin care routine but they still aren’t doing it.”
