Celebrities like Jake Gyllenhaal, Taylor Swift, Ashton Kutcher, and Mila Kunis have openly acknowledged that they have not taken showers in the recent past.
According to reports, the lead actor of "Brokeback Mountain" has expressed his belief that bathing is "less necessary", while the pop singer behind "Shake It Off" shared that she does not wash her legs.
Kutcher and Kunis are of the opinion that there is no purpose in showering unless they feel unclean.
Now, a TikTok user's showering habits have gained popularity on the app.
Allison, a TikToker, revealed that she was taken aback to learn that some individuals take a shower every day, as she herself only showers twice a week.
To her followers, Allison admitted that she had come to the realization that she is, in fact, unhygienic.
Allison explained that the reason for her lack of daily showers is because, unlike most girls who claim to wash their hair twice a week, she takes that statement literally and doesn't shower every day.
Allison confessed that she showers only once or twice per week and even admitted to going as long as five days without taking a shower.
She confirms, "Whenever I take a shower, I make sure to wash my hair."
"What's the point of taking a shower if I'm not going to wash my hair?" she questions. "However, I don't want to wash my hair on a daily basis."
"I've had to change my statement to 'I wash my hair twice a week,' even though I only shower twice a week," she explains.
Allison's admission, which has garnered 7.3 million views, has created a divide among social media users, with some questioning why she limits her showers to only twice a week.
A user exclaims, "There's no way you just shared this information about yourself!"
Another person recommends, "Hey, use a shower cap, girl!"
The person remarks, "Honestly, I won't even get into my bed unless I've showered and changed into fresh clothes."
A fourth person chimes in, "It's crazy that some of you agree with showering just once or twice a week."
"There's no way I could go a whole week without showering," comments another person. "I understand skipping a day or two, but a full week? No thanks."
On the other hand, some individuals are showing support for Allison and applauding her for speaking out about the issue.
A person states, "I can totally relate. Showering can be exhausting."
Another person expresses, "I'm sorry, but I'm glad someone finally said it."
"I've been in that situation and I do the same thing. If I'm not dirty, I don't shower. Only when my hair is dirty do I take a shower," confesses a third person.
One person confesses, "I agree. Showering can feel like a real chore."
A fifth person writes, "Thank you for bringing this up. Showering can be so exhausting! I don't understand how some people manage to do it so often."
Allison subsequently uploaded a follow-up video in response to the feedback she had received.
She informs her followers that this is a widespread issue that is often underestimated.
"I understand that there might be individuals who don't bathe regularly and have body odor, but I personally don't have an unpleasant odor, and I don't feel the need to wash my hair every time I take a shower," she stated.
In addition, she acknowledges that she purchased a shower cap after it was recommended in the comments.
WebMD states that there is no universal answer to how frequently one should take a shower per week.
"Many doctors say a daily shower is fine for most people," WebMD says.
"But for many people, two to three times a week is enough and maybe even better to maintain good health."
"It depends on your lifestyle."
