I do this about 20% of the time. Some days I am just too stiff/sore to be able to get to them, especially my feet.

i also thought it was silly but it seems for a totally different reason.

why would you go in the shower to wash yourself and not wash your legs? are legs magically self cleaning?

Bath Person here. Use Palmolive Clear Dish Soap (no additives - makes a great sensitive skin cleaner and CLEANS) - shave legs (and arms) daily and scrub feet with scrubber and the dish soap. Have it down to less than 8 minutes in the tub. Figure the shaving will pay off with nice skin later in life. I have an obsession with clean dry feet and like to be clean period. Do this before gym workout and then quick flash shower after. Then off to work.

If you're heading down to your feet with the soap and loofah or whatever anyway, why would you skip your legs? They're right there.

No it's not normal. There.
It's said.

I don't always wash my back as I can't reach it. Those dern back cleaners are ridiculous. I'm not that flexible ! Its like a ninja sword trying to move it around .

Do these non leg cleaners wrap there legs in saran wrap??

I love the exfoliate. ..then clog the pores with moisturizer. Vicious cycles....

If I were a double leg amputee, then yes.. its normal... other wise... i don't think so. You'd have to go through a lot of trouble to avoid washing your legs.

Why in the world wouldn't you when you're on your way down there to wash your feet? This is a really weird topic!

I would say it is normal for some people and not for others. Everybody doesn't have to follow the same path.

So you guys literally work your way down? Feet are the last things you wash? I guess that makes me weird for picking my feet up and washing them and then moving on to my legs? I wash my hands before my arms too. Weird, the topics that are fascinating on a boring 3am midweek morning.

Absolutely. It is not recommended for everyone to do an intense scrub of all of their body everyday because it can remove the skinís natural moisture barrier. If you have dry arms/legs, scrubbing them on a daily basis is only going to make it worse. I usually do scrub my torso/shoulders and upper thighs, but donít spend that much time on the rest of my legs and lower arms because they tend to get fairly dry. Obviously if I am doing something where they get dirty, they will get a thorough wash, but otherwise, they will get a good rinse.
