James Hamblin starts off his book by stating that he hasn't showered in 5 years. He's clear up front that he's not advocating that as a life choice for everyone, and that as a white, straight, man of a certain level of socioeconomic standing he has privileges that make it easier to make that choice. What follows instead is an exploration of the history of hygiene, particularly of soap, the growing body of knowledge about the importance of our skin's microbiome, and the growing acknowledgement that while washing our hands is massively important, washing everything else is a little more optional. The book did make me grateful to live in Canada as cosmetics and skin products are regulated up here and there's almost no oversight in the US. Fascinating content and well written (Hamblin is both a doctor and a journalist). ( )

The main points are that we, humans, overwash and kill off good bacteria in a pursuit of an unrealistic level "cleanliness"... and that skincare companies are producing overpriced, barely-tested products full of mystery ingredients (they don't have to disclose ingredients to FDA) with no substance behind their claims. Oh, and that overuse of skincare products is doing more harm than good. Some interesting information on marketing of the beauty products... such as the profit-driven benefits of the same company having multiple competing products in the same category to give an illusion of choice. The proposed link between increasing instances of allergies and the use disinfectants is also an interesting concept. As someone who has simplified her beauty routine RIGHT down over the last couple of years (and it's been fine - I still look OK, even without serums and acids and special eye creams), the information has not been earth-shatteringly new to me, but does confirm my various readings on the subject.

I feel as though I know James after listening to his and Katherine's Social Distance podcast since they started it with pandemic questions. This book is a very deep look at what the word "clean" can possibly encompass and having James explain his own behaviors really added a very special treatment to the topic. Because we are about to undergo a bathroom transformation for the idea of aging safely, I am suddenly wondering why we are bothering??? We might just not have many long hot showers!! Clean really makes you rethink how we live and how we can possibly change. Yes, he adds a paragraph that the book was basically done before we really got into the pandemic. Certain things change but most of what he wrote will still be here when we are finally past this time in history amid a Covid crisis. Definitely worth reading! ( )

An engaging journey through the history of cleanliness, an introduction to the role microbes living on our skin play regarding our health, the historical shift from being anti-germ to purposely adding microbes to our bodies. Finally zooming out to a global view of public health and the need to strike a balance between exposing or isolating ourselves from microbes found in nature. ( )

We have all heard 'Less is more' In this new book, Hamblin takes this belief on in ways you wouldn't expect. He opens the book by telling the reader he stopped showering; which I admit, almost made me put the book down. I'm glad I heard him out & I think you will be too. The journey he takes to discover what our skin really needs will surprise you & save you tons of money in the long run.
I loved this book.
