The Mental and Physical Benefits Of Morning Vs. Night Showers
There isn't a definitive answer on whether morning showers or night showers are better, since experts have differing opinions. It all comes down to your preference and lifestyle.
For early birds, morning showers can help motivate the day ahead. You might even feel more alert afterward, per psychologist Dr. Janet K. Kennedy via The New York Times.
Morning showers are also ideal for those who sweat at night and prefer to style their hair in the morning, rather than going to bed with it wet the night before.
Keep in mind that, in winter months, a morning shower might require you to be outside with wet hair if you don't have time to dry, which can be uncomfortable.
People who shower at night see it as the more hygienic option. It allows you to wash away the dirt, sweat, and other chemicals you collect throughout the day.
The hot water also soothes your muscles and prepares you for a good night's sleep. Mentally, showering at night is a good way to relax and unwind after a long day.
If you're someone who likes their shower hot, be sure not to spend too much time in the water, as this can irritate and dry out your skin.
