Is It Worthless to Shower With Soap? One Dermatologist Says Yes

Is It Worthless to Shower With Soap? One Dermatologist Says Yes

Let’s hope none of your coworkers hear this and get inspired to try it out.

There’s a dermatologist at the University of Toronto named Sandy Skotnicki, and she’s currently working on a book that makes a pretty wild claim: You don’t need soap.

Quote, “If you go to work, dress in a long-sleeve shirt and pants, you’re in your office all day and you go home, there’s no reason for you to use soap. Even if you’ve been at the gym, you don’t necessarily need soap . . . water is more than enough to clean off.”

She says we’re not getting anywhere close to as dirty as we think we are.

And modern soaps are so filled with chemicals that they’re doing more damage to our skin than good. They’re just making us itchy and don’t even do a particularly good job at getting the bacteria off of us.

So should you EVER use soap? Sure, if you’re actually dirty . . . but if you’re showering with it daily, it’s really unnecessary.

You didn’t realize it, but apparently you needed to have a thesaurus next to you when you filled out your online dating profile.

A new study found the words that help you get your profile noticed and the ones that are killing you.

The best way for a man to describe himself is . . . “physically fit.” That leads to a 95% increase in views, although if your pictures don’t quite back up that description, it probably won’t lead to dates.

Other good words for men to use are perceptive . . . spontaneous . . . outgoing . . . and optimistic. The three worst ways a man can describe himself are quiet . . . spiritual . . . and respectful.

The best way for a woman to describe herself is . . . “ambitious.” That will get you 48% more views on your profile.

Other good words for women to use are perceptive . . . sweet . . . hard working . . . and thoughtful. The three worst ways a woman can describe herself are spiritual . . . quiet . . . and dependable.

A Guy Dumped a Girl He Met on . . . So She Filled His Hot Tub With Plenty of Fish

Hot tub full of fish

A 35-year-old woman named Zoe Jackson from North Yorkshire, England met 46-year-old Gerard Brogan last January on the dating website

And they dated for about three months. But Gerard says Zoe started getting too intense. And then she dropped a bomb . . . she had SIX children. So he told her he wasn’t ready to commit, and dumped her.

So how do you get REVENGE when a relationship from goes south? Zoe snuck into his backyard, and filled his hot tub with . . . plenty of fish. Dead fish.

He didn’t find them until he got home from a trip two days later, and they’d been cooking in the hot water that entire time. So obviously his hot tub was ruined.

Zoe was in court this week and pleaded guilty to criminal damage. She got probation and was ordered to pay Gerard $750.

The New Stupid Internet Trend is the “Thighbrow”

The New Stupid Internet Trend is the “Thighbrow”



There’s a new stupid internet trend you might have heard about . . . or will soon. It’s called the “thighbrow.”

It’s just a made-up name for the crease, fold, or roll of flesh that forms between a woman’s upper thigh and their hip when they bend forward, sit, or kneel. Yes, apparently that needed a name.

Think “Kardashian” or just women in bathing suits in general. Although we suppose it happens to guys too? It’s basically part of the whole booty trend, where bigger is better . . . since thicker hips and a big butt tend to create more thighbrow.

It’s more of a hashtag on Instagram than a trend, but whatever. You’ll see a ton of examples if you Google it. Just know that your screen will be filled with photos of scantily clad women.

Yes, we know . . . it makes no sense, because it’s not even really a ‘thing.’ But at least almost anyone can do it?

And if you see it pop up, now you know.

You’re welcome.
