Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher showed up on the Armchair Expert Podcast with Dax Shepard and Monica Padman and turned heads when they started talking about showering habits.
“I can’t believe I am in the minority here of washing my whole body in the shower. Who taught you to not wash?” Padman asked, to which Kunis replied, “I didn’t have hot water growing up as a child, so I didn’t shower much anyway.”
“But when I had children, I also didn’t wash them every day,” the Kunis actress continued. “I wasn’t that parent that bathed my newborns — ever.”
Kutcher added, “Now, here’s the thing: If you can see the dirt on them, clean them. Otherwise, there’s no point.”
Bathing babies too much with soap “can dry out his or her skin,” according to the Mayo Clinic.
The American Academy of Dermatology Association say on their website that kids ages 6 to 11 “may not need a daily bath,” but should at least wash once or twice a week.
