Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher recently appeared on the Armchair Expert podcast where they discussed parenting their two children, Wyatt Isabelle, 6, and son Dimitri Portwood, 4
The celebrity couple revealed that they don’t believe in bathing their kids with soap every day.
Co-hosts Dax Shepard and Monica Padman started discussing how frequent they shower. Shepard insisted that you should only wash with water or else you are “getting rid of the natural oil on your skin with a bar of soap every day” Kunis and Kutcher agreed.
Kunis replied, “I didn’t have hot water growing up as a child, so I didn’t shower much anyway.”
Shepard revealed that he and wife Kristen Bell used to bathe their daughters every day as “part of a nighttime routine,” but stopped when the kids got older.
“That’s how we feel about our children,” Kunis said. while Kutcher added, “Now, here’s the thing: If you can see the dirt on them, clean them. Otherwise, there’s no point.”
The American Academy of Dermatology Association states that kids ages 6 to 11 “may not need a daily bath,” but should at least wash once or twice a week.
