When it comes to showering, everyone has their preferences and routines. Some people like to start their day with a refreshing shower to wake themselves up and prepare for the day ahead. Others prefer to wind down in the evening, finding solace in a relaxing shower before bedtime.
Whatever your preference, the debate between morning and night-time showering has been rumbling on for many years. Here, The Bathroom Showroom explores the benefits of both morning and evening showers while considering how each plays a part in our health, beauty and overall well-being.

The Benefits of Morning Showers 

An Energising Start To The Day: A refreshing morning shower can help jumpstart your day, help you wake up better, and feel more energised as you get the energy boost you need to tackle whatever lies in the day ahead.
The warm water can invigorate your senses and prepare you for the day ahead, so too can using those most invigorating of shower products. Stimulating your senses, many people find morning showers promote a feeling of cleanliness and refreshment that lends itself to confidence when starting the day correctly. 
Cleansing Away the Night: Morning showers remain an essential part of many people's routines as they can help wash away the night's sweat and oils to leave you feeling fresh and clean. Helping you create a more refreshed and polished look for the day ahead, some people feel uncomfortable starting the day without completing this task.
For many, a morning shower is a way of getting motivated and feeling more productive in dealing with work and the chores that are required of them, especially if they’ve had a good night’s sleep beforehand. 

The Benefits of Night Showers 

A Relaxed Evening Routine: On the other hand, taking a shower in the evening can be a great way to relax and unwind after a long day. The warm water can help soothe tired muscles, relieve stress, and promote a sense of calm before bedtime.
Whether you prefer to shower in silence or add a little bath-time music to your routine, a warm evening shower with calming shower products, like lavender,  is undoubtedly the perfect way to quieten the mind and help alleviate the stresses and strains of a hectic work day.
Many people also find that showering in the evening allows for extra time as it eliminates the morning rush and therefore helps you relax more knowing there’s one less task to do upon waking. 
Cleansing The Day Away: Many people like to jump in the shower before bedtime in a bid to rid themselves of the day's dirt and grime. This is especially so if you find yourself commuting daily, whether driving long distances, using public transport, or moving through busy cities and towns.
For some people, an evening shower just before falling into bed is an essential part of their self-care routine. What’s more, for some, there’s no better feeling than climbing into bed and snuggling down to a good night's sleep feeling comfortable, clean and cleansed after a night shower.
