Jason Momoa made sure that his fans were aware of his personal hygiene standards in an interview with Access Hollywood last week. He assured them that he carried over his onscreen love for water into his personal life.
Jason Momoa Showers Daily
Aquaman, or Jason Momoa, let his fans know that he stayed on top of all of his grooming rituals, including showering daily. He also mentioned that he didn’t want to start any trends and he showered regularly. Momoa also added that he was Aquaman, and he was in the water – at least in the movie he was.
He later added that with his Hawaiian background, he has saltwater on him so he’s good when it comes to showering. Momoa makes it a priority to stay true to his Aquaman character and emerge himself in water regularly.
Some of Hollywood’s Showering Habits
Jason Mamoa made his comments in a response to the latest and most eyebrow-raising Hollywood celebrity trend that involves delaying routine showering. The trend started when celebrity couple Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis were on Armchair Expert, Dax Shepard’s podcast, back in July. They mentioned that they only soaped down the essential areas daily and they only washed their kids when they saw dirt on them.
Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard chimed in after that, and Jake Gyllenhaal told Vanity Fair that he found bathing less necessary recently. Jason Momoa joined Dwayne Johnson when he said he’s the opposite of a person who doesn’t wash as he took 3 showers a day.
Johnson elaborates by stating that his mornings begin with a cold shower when he gets out of bed and then a warm one after his workout. He then takes a hot shower once he gets home from work that includes face washing, body washing, exfoliating, and of course, off-key singing.
A New Study Shows That Exercising Does Not Lead to Arthritis In the Knee
According to new research from the University of Oxford, there is no reason to link exercise and developing arthritis in the knee. This became evident after a meta-analysis of six global studies with over 5,000 participants, of which some had arthritis in the knee, and some didn’t. They were followed for periods of five to twelve years, and the gathered data showed that adults over 45 were mostly free of risk when it came to recreational activities.
Recreational Exercise, Sport, Running, Cycling, and Swimming Do Not Cause Arthritis of the Knee
While this recent study found that recreational exercise involving cycling, swimming, running, or sports with little to no impact on the knee will not cause arthritis, occupations that involve heavy physical work, whole-body vibration, kneeling, and repetitive movements should be considered risky. The researchers at the University of Oxford have stated that the study was the first of its kind, assessing the relationship between physical exercise, the calories burned during activity, and osteoarthritis.
Osteoarthritis Is the Most Common form of Arthritis Among Adults
Apparently, osteoarthritis is the most common form of arthritis and is more common in women and people of older age. Obesity is another one of the common risk factors related to the disease. According to Dr. Thomas Perry from the University of Oxford, the recent findings suggest that whole-body, physiological energy expenditure related to sports, walking, and cycling activities is not directly associated with arthritis of the knee. Also, time spent in recreational physical activity should not be associated with incident osteoarthritis.
Now that scientists know that the time spent doing physical activity and the amount of exercise is not a cause for the development of knee osteoarthritis, clinicians can feel better about prescribing physical activity for health. The evidence can also encourage more people to go out and exercise without worrying about arthritis.
The study from the University of Oxford was published in the journal Arthritis & Rheumatology and accepted for publication after undergoing full peer review.
