Cardi B has publicly expressed confusion after several celebrities in recent times said they don't take showers every day. The 28-year-old rapper took to Twitter to share, “Wassup with people saying they don’t shower? It’s giving itchy.” Cardi’s tweet came after a number of Hollywood personalities proudly revealed that they don't believe in bathing regularly.

The latest celebrity to make such a claim was Jake Gyllenhaal. The 40-year-old actor recently told Vanity Fair, “More and more I find bathing to be less necessary, at times. I do believe, because Elvis Costello is wonderful, that good manners and bad breath get you nowhere. So I do that. But I do also think that there’s a whole world of not bathing that is also really helpful for skin maintenance, and we naturally clean ourselves.”

Before him, Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard had admitted that they only bathe their children after they start stinking. Bell said on ‘The View’: “I’m a big fan of waiting for the stink. Once you catch a whiff, that’s biology’s way of letting you know you need to clean it up,” before adding, “There’s a red flag. Honestly, it’s just bacteria; once you get bacteria you gotta be like, ‘Get in the tub or the shower.'”

The 46-year-old Shepard explained how this bizarre custom began in their family. He mentioned, “We bathed our children every single night prior to bed as their routine, then somehow they just started going to sleep on their own without their routine and we had to start saying [to each other] like, ‘Hey, when was the last time you bathed them?’”

Bell also agreed with Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher’s family bathing tradition. The 41-year-old actress stated, “So I don’t hate what they’re doing. I wait for the stink.” Kunis and Kutcher had confessed on Dax Shepard and Monica Padman’s ‘Armchair Expert’ podcast that they shower their kids when they see “dirt on them.” Kunis explained, “I didn't have hot water growing up as a child, so I didn't shower much anyway. But when I had children, I also didn't wash them every day. I wasn't that parent that bathed my newborns — ever.”

Her 43-year-old actor husband stated, “Now, here's the thing: If you can see the dirt on them, clean them. Otherwise, there's no point,” before adding that he “washes my armpits and my crotch daily, and nothing else ever. I got a bar of Lever 2000 that delivers every time. Nothing else.” Kutcher also said that he does “have a tendency to throw some water on my face after a workout to get all the salts out...I do wash my face twice a day.”

Meanwhile, several people on the internet connected themselves to Cardi’s confusion as a user tweeted, “White peoples believe in the trickle down effect so the soap just does it’s thing in their minds.” The second wrote, “This IS IS The WORST discussion about showering i've seen. You should /and need to shower every day and that's It!!! Specially chikdren.(not only when they smell bad). We ARE human beings not Animals. Even Animals ARE more clean than some humans. #showerfun.”



 

 



 

“Right. I can't even imagine without showering once a day .no matter what American dermatologists said "we don't need to shower everyday,our skin is natural microbiome" pls even if you don't want use soup or shampoo,y'all should pour your whole body with water once a day,” a person noted and another one added: “Ew... in my country we shower at least 3 times a day.”
