Is it necessary to take bath daily? Yes. If a person does not take bath for two-four days, its obvious that it becomes difficult to even sit near them. However, women of the Himba tribe of the Kunain province of northern Namibia in Africa never take a bath. Despite this, she is considered the most beautiful women in Africa.
Bathing is a far cry for the women of Himba tribe, they cannot even wash their hands. There are twenty to fifty thousand people in this tribe. According to the tradition of the tribe, they are not allowed to take a bath, but they adopt another method to keep themselves clean.
These women use the steam of herbs instead of bathing. By boiling these special herbs in water, they keep their body fresh. Due to this, their body does not even smell and the skin also keeps smelling. At the same time, to protect the skin from the sun, they also use a kind of lotion which is prepared from animal fat and haematite dust. Due to Haematite, the color of their skin becomes red. In addition, this lotion also protects women from insect bites. This is the reason why these women are known as Red Men.
