4. Nasty odor
Yes, man or woman, you’ve smelled your armpit. Two days in, that smell is not appealing, at all.
5. Possible skin reactions
Of course, you don’t have to shower 3 times a day, that has adverse effects, too. Regular showering will prevent the build up of oils in the skin, especially after intensive workouts. Every doctor will tell you to listen to your skin and give it what it needs. Just like with everything else, there’s a pattern to it, you just have to figure it out.
