Kids, you might wanna show mummy and daddy this article the next time they try and tell you to take a shower for the 7th time in one night!

Your go-to line, should you have any issues from haters trying to usher you along to the shower, is to tell them that you're just looking after your microbiome and if they fire back a look that says "I should know this but I have no idea what you're saying" then count that as victory and continue on your way!

Now, what are microbes you ask? Ohhhhhh just a little thing that'll help you live and keep your immune system and heart functioning correctly! For every shower you take the more it strips your skin of the good microbes that are just simply doing their job and keeping you healthy. The main production line for bad odour is located under the old armpits and groin, soooooo just give them a wee bathe and you're good to go!

We are, in no way, trying to tell you to pull out the shower because you've committed to doing your best to keeping the microbes alive, however that's a tad foolish. Instead, live in the satisfaction that should you decide to skip a shower because you're not feeling up to it, just know that your microbes are thanking you!
