Eco-warrior Vivienne Westwood, 76, claims the secret to staying young is having a bath just ONCE a week - after previously admitting she rarely showers

Post by HoratioTarr on Sun Oct 01, 2017 3:16 pm


Dame Vivienne Westwood says the secret to staying young is only having a bath once a week.
The 76-year-old fashion designer advised that people shouldn't 'wash too much' - before her husband Andreas Kronthaler, 51, revealed that she 'only takes a bath every week'.

Kronthaler, who is also a fashion designer, then went on to joke that he only washes 'once a month'.
Westwood, who is well known for being an eco-warrior, has previously admitted that she rarely showers - and reuses her husband's dirty bath water.

She previously explained: 'Normally at home I’m not used to the habit of a shower.
'I just wash my bits and rush out in the morning and more often than not get in the bath after Andreas.'
The designer has previously starred in a campaign for animal rights group PETA, which shows her having a shower.

Perhaps at 76, you don't get as smelly? A younger woman who menstruates and is sexually active needs to shower every day....or is it just me? scratch

Everyone needs a shower. Men don't menstruate and they stink too if they don't bathe. Everyone needs to get a shower or bath every single day.

Everyone needs a shower.  Men don't menstruate and they stink too if they don't bathe.    Everyone needs to get a shower or bath every single day.

I don't wash my hair everyday. I never have.

Actually I'm really quite feminine in that I like to smell and look nice anyway.

Well, people seemed to manage not to stink everywhere out years ago. A strip wash can suffice. In WW2 all services were taught to wash with minimum water, like a basin full, many already knew how to do that from not having having water on tap and no bathrooms. I remember my aunts and sisters having detachable washable pads to put in the underarm of blouses and jumpers plus making homemade antiperspirants. I don't remember anyone smelling any more than people do now, probably less to be honest. No empty cans or plastic bottles to throw away either. Strip washes were a bit of an ordeal though - no heating just the warm water and a brisk drying with a towel but it did wake you up and get the blood flowing. Clothes were sponged and brushed and generally taken care of between wearing and washed only when required. Now we wear and wash and don't really care about the water we use or the detergeant we send down the drains and eventually the oceans I suppose. So maybe using the bath or shower every day isn't such a good idea, the way things are going at least in some areas, people will have to get used to that kind of washing.

I had a new knee three years ago, I couldn't bathe or shower for 2 to 3 weeks after, and it didn't bother me at all.
A good all over wash every morning, a dab of Chanel No 5....and I was ready to go, hopefully  without turning anyones stomach.

What a Face

Stating everybody needs a shower "every day" is pure ignorance...

This  is one of those subjects where the  frequency of bathing depends on several inter-related factors, such as,  for example  :

*  The individual's normal level of ponginess
*  The availabilty of a bath or shower
*  Your degree of personal hygiene
*  One's level of physical activity
*  Where you and how you work
*  Your general state of health
*  The climate and weather
*  What you eat and drink
*  What you wear
*  Deoderants
Etc., etc.,  etc...



P.S. I laugh at the concept of Vivienne Westwood being an "Eco-Warrior"  --  more like an "eco-dilettante", (viz. her associating with PETA..)  !        tongue
