Showering too much???

i really didn't even thing this was an issue but apparently i shower too much.
i usually shower in the morning because it helps me feel better in the morning along with waking me up, but then i also shower when i get home or before i go to bed because i feel sweaty and dirty after work and being on the bus.
I've even sometimes showered 3 times during the when i told someone at work about this they told me im damaging skin oils or something i thought it was bs but then my dad told me and i saw it on the internet
so now im kind of nervous if this could lead to problems in the future???

im even sometime as bad as i wont go on my lap top or play my 360 bc i havent shower and i feel as im dirty when in the back of my mind i know that washing my hands is just as fine and showering except im not washing my whole body.

I don't think it's bad for you, just a waste of time. You must have OCD or something, if you think you need to shower that much.

It's not bad, but I think you could be drying out your skin. You're losing a lot of water when you shower, especially when it's a hot shower.

I shower twice a day regularly. 3 times if I go to the gym/work on the car in the afternoon, or before going partying or something.

I shower 3 times a day, morning, after I workout and before I go to bed. And Girl is right, if you shower too much and use too much soap it will dry out your skin. I had this issue a couple years ago and my doctor told me to start using unscented and very mild soap which has worked out great.

In actuality, because of the abundance of water in the lower mainland (possibly B.C.?) water leaks from underground carrying tubes is the #1 water "loss".

it sounds like ur leaning a bit towards being germaphobic or whatnot by the sounds of u saying u want to shower before playing ur 360?

I shower twice a day but i only wash my hair with shampoo at night time (get out all the wax and siht) and in the morning i just soak it ..

And

Yes, apparently washing your hair to much dmg's it same as wearing a hats to much and geling/waxing ur hair... (heard this from a friend who is a hair stylist)
Your really only suppose to wash your hair every few days.. (if u look at girls, u can tell sometimes they dont wash there hair everyday .. duno if there lazy or because it dmgs it lol )

It depends on what you mean by too much. Showering with the scrubbing and hot chlorinated water damages your skin so more showering is worse, but too little showering is unsanitary.

If you sweat a lot I would say it is justified. Sweating being one the body's methods of getting rid of waste. More of a side effect then its primary function. You could still get by without it, but I am sure if your are feeling dirty on a normal day that this might be too much. That is why it is ok during summer. On cool days when you are inactive you could probably skip a day. You could probably go more, but your social life might be hindered
