Popstar Miley Cyrus told fans that she's not bathing during her self-quarantine, MTO News has learned. The singer claims that she's been wearing the same clothes now for the past five days - and doesn't plan on changing or bathing "anytime soon."
Here's the video with Miley making that announcement:
Going too long without bathing, however, can cause serious health effects. First off, and most obvious it will lead to body odor as you allow dead skin cells, sweat, and oil to build upon the surface of the skin and clog pores. It can also trigger an acne breakout.
Second, wearing sweaty, moist or soiled clothes for long periods increases the risk of bacterial or fungal infections.
And if taken to an extreme, it could be deadly. If you go too long without bathing, you can get dermatitis neglecta (DN), a condition in which brown patches of dead cells, dirt, sweat, and grime form on the skin.
Also known as "unwashed dermatosis," this condition tends to occur among people who are unable to adequately clean their bodies due to an injury or physical disability which can eventually lead to amputation of limbs.
