  • Every morning...

  • ...or every night.

  • Before going out.

  • Definitely after the big game.

  • For most people, showering is routine.

  • But for some, it's religion.

  • "When are you getting out?"

  • "I'm not! I'll see ya later, buddy!"

  • But if lots of showering makes you feel divine,

  • your body might be the real miracle worker.

  • This is 'What If,'

  • and here's what would happen if you didn't shower for a month.

  • The average human spends more than a year of their life in the shower.

  • And according to most dermatologists, that's way too much.

  • But how else are you supposed to keep looking and smelling your best?

  • While it's no secret that scrubbing removes dirt, sweat, and harmful bacteria;

  • it also strips away natural fats and lipids that hydrate your skin.

  • The more you shower, the less time your body has

  • to replenish this healthy layer of moisturizing bacteria.

  • So if you stop showering, will your body just clean itself?

  • Um...

  • it would be healthier...

  • for you...

  • ...but not for everyone else...

  • Once you give up showering,

  • you'll start to see a difference in as little as three days.

  • Your skin will be noticeably drier, and your hair greasier.

  • One of the first signs of "progress"

  • will be that your hair will stay in place when combed back,

  • no product needed!

  • After going 5 days without showering,

  • you should probably start warning people before you enter a room.

  • Then again, they'll smell you coming.

  • If you're doing this challenge without deodorant,

  • then put the savings towards a T-shirt budget.

  • Sweat stains will be so bad that

  • your shirts will beone wear and throw outitems.

  • After 10 days, you can throw your comb out too.

  • Your hair will be so greasy and matted

  • that you won't be able to run a brush through it;

  • Your scalp will be so itchy that any relief would be welcome,

  • but at the same time, any contact with your head

  • will no doubt show how bad your dandruff problem is.

  • By day 20, it's hard to believe you're human.

  • Friends and family no longer acknowledge your existence,

  • and you can barely stand your own smell, let alone your appearance.

  • Days and nights of scratching your dry, itchy skin

  • will be obvious from the festering sores on your body.

  • And if you thought you were past getting acne, congratulations, you're 13 again!

  • You're ready to give up, but just wait a little longer.

  • By the end of the month, after rinsing only with water,

  • the layer of healthy bacteria that your body produces will be completely restored.

  • The acne goes away on its own,

  • and your skin will probably start looking better

  • than it ever did when you were showering.

  • But will it have been worth it?

  • Probably not. You'll still smell terrible.

  • While sweat doesn't actually emit any odor,

  • it does produce fatty acids and proteins that your skin bacteria feed on;

  • and it's their metabolic process that gives off that nasty smell.

  • So yeah, keep using soap, keep showering,

  • but maybe dial back how often you do it.

  • Why dedicate a year of you life to standing in the shower,

  • when you can free up some of that time to watch more 'What If?'

Every morning...
