“Who does not wash, this one lives long”? This assumption is apparently made by Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher, who recently confessed that they only wash their children when they get dirty. The network has raged, and yet … the acting couple know what they are doing!
“I only wash my children when they get dirty”
Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher they met on the set of the series “Pink 70s”. A few years later they became a couple, and in 2015 they said the sacramental “yes”. The marriage has two children: at the moment their daughter Wyatt is 7 and their son Dimitri is 5. Although the couple does not reveal many aspects of their family life in the media, in the latest “Armchair Expert” podcast they admitted to their unusual approach to the hygiene of their children.
It turns out that Kunis and Kutcher wash their children sporadically, only when they really get dirty:
We bathe them only when they are dirty. Washing more often does not make any sense. The soap deprives the skin of natural oils. I am not one of the mothers who bathe their newborns all the time. I believe this shouldn’t be done every day – the actress confessed.
The principle of “frequent washing shortens life” is also adhered to by the head of the family. Ashton Kutcher announced that he himself washes only his armpits, crotch and face every day. Kunis added that when she was a child, bathing in warm water was a luxury for her. The fans were surprised. The frequency of washing children of the acting couple raised a lot of controversy, and some Internet users did not spare unpleasant comments.
How often do you bathe your baby?
What is it like with the hygiene of young children? It turns out that Mila and Ashton are not wrong. Experts at the American Academy of Dermatology recommend bathing the little ones no more than twice a week. Frequent washing can affect the lipid barrier of delicate skin and cause allergies, rashes and excessive dryness. Also, the use of too many washing products may not be advisable at all – specialists sometimes say that even hot water alone is enough. Of course, we are talking about a comprehensive bath – Mr. Kutcher is right, especially taking care of “sensitive” places that sweat quickly and are subject to other soiling. The same applies to children – the diaper area, the face, the skin behind the ears, armpits and neck require frequent daily hygiene.
