For some, it may feel impossible to leave the house without a good wash, especially in these warmer months, but this 23-year-old revealed she can go 10 days without a shower on TikTok.
Washington State University graduate Ayden Jane, 23, raised eyebrows when she revealed she went a week and a half without a shower.
Describing herself as ‘the girl who doesn’t shower & shows her period online’, she shared a video on the social medial platform where she claimed to be ‘the proof you don’t have to shower to look good.’
She was blasted by other users who were shocked by her admission and called her ‘crazy.’
Some said they could never go this long without a shower, and others said Ayden should stay ’10ft away’ from them.

The 23-year-old, who dubbed herself ‘the girl who doesn’t shower & shows her period online’ said she is the living proof you don’t have to bathe everyday to look or feel good
‘I am living proof that you don’t have to bathe often to look and feel good, ‘ the controversial TikTok user said in a video where she is seen showing off her hair and skin, claiming she hasn’t washed in 10 days.
The video was watched by more than three million people and spawned a lot of negative comments. In other clips shared on the platform, Ayden addressed her critics.
She said she could see no difference in her appearance whether she showered or not, with the exception of her hair, which is curlier when freshly washed.
She explained she hadn’t felt the need to shower for 10 days because her hair didn’t feel oily, due to a specific shampoo she used.
Ayden said the reason she didn’t shower for that long is because her hair didn’t get oily for 10 days
She also revealed she applies eco-friendly anti-perspirant everyday to keep fresh and insisted she didn’t smell bad.
Ayden admitted she realizes she belongs to a minority of people who can go long periods of time without a shower.
‘I am pretty sure I am not representative of the general public – I would guess the general public showers daily,’ she said.
She revealed she is the one who showered the most in her household in spite of not showering everyday.
The 23-year-old said she doesn’t think she smells bad and argued it is better for the environment not to bathe daily
‘I would argue it’s better for the environment if we shower less because water’s a precious resource,’ she added.
‘Like, unless you’re doing a manual labor job and getting really sweaty or covered in grease, you probably don’t need to be showering daily,’ she added.
Ayden added she doesn’t shower more when she is on her period because ‘periods aren’t dirty.’
Dubbing herself a ‘period justice activist,’ Ayden, who also shares graphic posts of her menstrual blood online, claimed the vulva doesn’t need to be washed because the vagina is self-cleaning.
But in spite of her efforts, her followers remained unconvinced.
‘Hey, why did you have to share this,’ one person asked.
’10 days is wild, let alone in the summer,’ another wrote.
‘I only do this when I’m depressed and lacking motivation,’ another said.
‘Stay 10ft away from me,’ one wrote.
However, some people came to Ayden’s defense, arguing 10 days is not a very long period.
’10 days isn’t that long, tbh, one said, to which Ayden replied ‘fully agree.’
