When Is the Best Shower Time?

When is the best time for shower? Although opinions about this question are almost equally divided, as well as for the question of whether milk or tea is supposed to be poured first into the cup, the findings of the experts have a good explanation for it.
The hot water jets that relax at the end of a hard day would not give up those who are keen on going under the shower in the evenings, but their opponents emphasize the vitalizing effect of morning shower after which they feel fresh and can easily start the day. What is better in expert's opinion?
It turns out -- the evening showers. However there are health benefits to both morning and evening showers.
“When you get into bed, you should feel clean,” said Nancy Rothstein, who calls herself The Sleep Ambassador. “You’ve been out and about all day - why would you want to get into bed like that?
Namely, it is important that you go to bed clean, not putting in all the dirt that is accumulated on you during the day.
Given that there is no difference in the cleanliness of the body during the day between those who shower in the morning and those who do it in the evening, the hygienic side of the time is irrelevant. But there are other things that are affected by the shower - which is the state of the body.
“A morning shower allows for time to meditate and regroup before starting a long or hectic day,” said Mona Gohara, MD, associate clinical professor of dermatology at the Yale School of Medicine. “This mindfulness can decrease inflammation in the skin by keeping levels of a hormone called cortisol capped.”
Gohara suggests that if you have to shave it is best to do it in the morning because you will be more aware and therefore the chances of cutting yourself are less likely.
She says: “Mornings are the best time to shave because that’s when you have a surge of platelets - or blood cloggers.”
Other thing is that the skin will look better after a morning shower:
“Our skin is at its best after your skin routine is done first thing in the morning,” said Yen Reis, founder of Skin Laundry. “This is prior to facing any free radicals, sun, dirt or debris, which inevitably attack our skin the minute we walk out the door.”
After relaxing the skin cells during the night stimulating them by a morning shower would be particularly important for oily or acne-prone skin. But be aware not to make the water too hot.
“Lukewarm water is best,” Reis says. “While a morning shower can make your skin appear healthier, a too-hot shower can have the opposite effect, specifically for dry and sensitive skin.”
