Jake Gyllenhaal is another star who has SOMETHING for showers or sitting in the bathtub. The actor in an interview with Vanity Fair stated that he does not like washing and does not do it too often, especially as our body cleans itself. Who is #teamjake?

At the end of July, there was a slight consternation on the network when Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher shared with the world the information that they only wash their children when dirt is visible on them. Are you jealous? Six-year-old Wyatt Isabelle and four-year-old Dimitri Portwood Kutcher have a stress-free dream childhood? The acting couple told about it in the podcast Armchair Expert. Children bathe when these, as mentioned, are visibly dirty. They don’t wash themselves too often. There are parts of the body that they wash more often (face, armpits, intimate organs), the rest they wash less often. They also take a shower after training.

A few days later, she made a similar confession Kristen Bell, an actress known, for example, from production Good place.

“I’m a huge fan of waiting for the stench. When you smell a characteristic smell, biology lets you know it’s time to clean up. It’s like a red flag, Bell said.

He also joined the group of opponents and opponents of frequent washing Jake Gyllenhaal, who believes that frequent showers or baths are not always “necessary”. Jake thinks we bathe too often. And he said about it on the occasion of an interview about Prada Luna Rossa Ocean for the said one Vanity Fair. While Jake cares about hygiene, he knows that living in society requires a fresh breath, a nice smell, so he does it. However, according to him, not taking a bath is not so bad that we overdo it with caring for our skin, which sometimes has the opposite effect, even harms us. According to the actor, washing is not as natural as it seems to us, it results rather from learned social behavior.

It is also worth noting that today, especially in the times of coronavirus, many people care about hygiene even more intensively, using strong cleansing agents. On the one hand, it makes sense, but on the other hand, there are also irritations of our skin, violation of the protective epidermis, dryness and irritation. In addition, we use a lot of water plus we harm the planet with chemicals … Besides, it is not only in pandemic times. I have friends who take a shower or bath in the morning and in the evening, plus during the day if they’ve been to the gym or it’s hot. That’s a lot. The question is, where is the golden mean and what is better for us, our body, the planet.
