Think showering is paleo? Think again before disturbing your horny layer

So I used to take 2 or 3 showers a day when I was swimming and working out twice a day. Turns out we could be disrupting our layer of skin which " disturbs microcolonies of skin flora and fauna, ".

Of course im not saying turn into a homeless person, but don't take that extra shower if you dont have to.

I'm wondering if maybe messing up these microcolonies could contribute to some skin conditions, as I have a couple?

If you have some skin conditions, they are more likely related to your gut microbiota. I have learned so much about my gut recently! So I would start with the insides first, and only once you know you took care of that issue, work on no shower stuff.

Just saying.
