In terms of personal hygiene, it is undoubtedly a good habit to take a bath or shower every day or even twice a day. However, from a yangsheng perspective, it is a bad habit because taking a bath/shower too frequently would do more harm than good to one's skin and energy system (or qi and blood circulation). For seniors, who has ageing skin and whose qi and blood system has become increasingly weaker, it is particularly unsuitable to take a bath/shower daily. To maintain personal hygiene, it would be better for elders to do so only when it is necessary or just once (or twice at most) per week.
