When you stare at beautiful celebrities in magazines or on your television screen, it’s hard to imagine that they aren’t physically perfect in real life. They usually look radiant and refreshed. Celebs have access to so many resources to make themselves tidy and presentable, but not every famous person takes advantage of this. Some of them don’t even take basic steps to stay clean. Unfortunately, lots of celebrities have bad hygiene and would probably gross you out if you met them in person. You would be surprised at how many famous people are known for having body odor or bad breath. From skipping showers to skipping deodorant, these stars aren’t putting much effort into staying clean. Maybe being rich and famous makes some people not care about hygiene. Next time you’re feeling jealous of a celebrity, just remember, they might smell bad.
Here are 15 celebrities with a bad hygiene reputation:
15. Jessica Simpson
Jessica Simpson is a gorgeous pop star, so it’s a little shocking to hear her discuss her gross oral hygiene. On an appearance on The Ellen Degeneres Show, the singer told the audience that she only brushes her teeth roughly three times a week! When asked why she replied, “because my teeth are so white and I don’t like them to feel too slippery.” We’ve all been guilty of lying to our dentist about flossing every day, but to admit to a live audience that you don’t brush your teeth daily is appalling. Jessica continued to say that she wipes her teeth with a t-shirt and insisted that her breath is always fresh. I’m not sure how hygienic it is to use a shirt to rub off dirt on your teeth, but it seems like a terrible idea. She also said that she flosses and uses mouthwash daily, which begs the question, why not just brush your teeth while you’re at it?
14. Kourtney Kardashian
Kourtney is definitely the most hippie Kardashian sister. She is known for doing things the natural and organic way, especially when it comes to eating and how she raises her children. When she was breastfeeding, Kourtney decided to give up deodorant. Her natural body odor was so bad that Scott Disick and Khloe Kardashian had to step in and let her know she smelled terrible. There was a whole episode of Kourtney and Kim take Miami devoted to how Khloe and Scott were going to let her know that she reeked. She did not even seem too surprised or embarrassed to hear the news. It is weird that the reality star does not wear deodorant, especially considering that her sister Kim has her own line of perfume. At least she was trying to protect her baby from possibly harmful chemicals. Hopefully she got back to wearing deodorant after she stopped breastfeeding, or chose a more natural option.
