The View: Dr. Doris Day How Often Should We Wash?
The View welcomed dermatologist Dr. Doris Day to the show today. Why? Here’s Jenny’s explanation: “You’ve read the recent reports. Don’t wash your hair, your face, even your jeans! So we’re getting the real story on how often we should wash our bodies from head to toe from our go-to dermatologist.”
Wait, what? Are there reports that we shouldn’t be washing ourselves? Are these the same reports that say no one should take vaccines, Jenny McCarthy? I’m confused.
The View: Dr. Doris Day How To Take Care Of Hair
The unfortunately named Dr. Doris Day, who was definitely not the Doris Day we all knew and loved, began by talking about hair care. She said that we over-process our hair and over blow dry it. This can lead to split ends and dry hair. Oily scalps and dry scalps are also considerations when it comes to hair care.
So what’s the answer? She said that if you have an oily scalp and you workout a lot, “you may have to wash everyday.” Dr. Doris Day recommended the Julien Farel hair care line, which has antioxidants for hair. If you’re going to go into a swimming pool, she also recommends you take a shower first with fresh water, because that will water-log your hair, ensuring that the chlorine won’t effect you as much. Whoopi Goldberg wondered if these products were good for her hair, too, and Dr. Doris Day said that it was.

Dr. Doris Day said that you have to make sure to cleanse your skin. She brought Neutrogena’s Cleansing Wipes which helps unclog the pores. Dr. Doris said that dirt on the face doesn’t cause acne, but it does clog pores which makes acne worse. She said that you should use a cleanser every night and an exfoliator twice a week.

Dr. Doris said that you should wash your hands when you come in from the outdoors, after you use the bathroom, and before you eat. She also said that if you don’t want to get sick, don’t touch your face. She said that people touch all kinds of things and then bite their nails or rub their eyes. That’s how you get sick. Dr. Doris Day said it’s important to moisturize after cleaning. She said make sure to wash your hands for at least 20 seconds.

Dr. Doris Day said that our skin is a great barrier and we need to take care of it. She said that we need to make sure our skin is hydrated. She recommended a gentle body moisturizing cleanser called the Olay Ultra Moisturizer. She also said you should use this with a body brush. She said you can shower once a day if you exercise a lot, otherwise you can just shower every third or fourth day. Dr. Doris Day said that if you shower properly, the “good bacteria” on your skin won’t be washed away.
