Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher See No Point in Bathing Their Kids Unless They Look Dirty and It Actually Makes Sense
Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis are household names by now and they are a great example of what we refer to as “couple goals.” Recently, they were guests on Dax Shepard’s podcast, Armchair Expert and there they revealed that they don’t bathe their kids very often. We wanted to delve a bit deeper into it and find out exactly why showering daily is not a part of their routine.
Bright Side couldn’t help but turn our “curiosity buttons” ON and we want to share our newest findings with you!
How it all started
Ashton and Mila first met while filming for the popular series, That ’70s Show — he was 19 years old and she was just 14 years old. It took more than a decade for them to get together and finally be a couple, even if Mila later admitted that she’d always had a crush on Ashton. The couple got married in 2015 and, today, they are the lucky parents of daughter Wyatt and son Dimitri.
Mila and Ashton don’t shower every day
Mila Kunis admitted she doesn’t wash her body with soap every day, she only focuses on the vitals. Because she didn’t have hot water growing up as a child, she didn’t really shower much anyway. “I wasn’t that parent that bathed my newborns, ever,” the actress added.
Ashton couldn’t agree more with his wife, explaining that if you can see the dirt on your kids, clean them. “Otherwise there’s no point.”
How often should we actually shower?
Approximately two-thirds of Americans shower daily, while in Australia more than 80% of people do so. In China, about 50% of people report bathing only twice a week. Our practice of showering might be more about daily habits than health.
According to some dermatologists, we should shower every other day or 2 to 3 times a week. Some people take a shower in the morning, one after going to the gym, and another one before going to bed. Personal hygiene is important. It’s a sign of respect toward the people around us, and most importantly, toward ourselves. But bathing too often may lead to dry/flaky skin, brittle hair, and itching.
In the winter, our skin might be drier than usual and, in this case, showering too often might bring some negatives. In the summer, a daily shower may not be negative for our bodies.
How often do you shower? Do you shower more often in the summer than in the winter? Do you agree that you shouldn’t bathe your kids unless they’re visibly dirty?
