Morning Shower Versus Night Shower? Which is better, according to research?

When it comes to showering, are you a night person or morning person? Some people like to start their day with a bath, while some others prefer to have it at night.

When is the best time to shower? Morning or night.

Well, it depends on you and your goals. In this article, we’ll consider the pros and cons of morning showers and night showers. Please read on and get ready to learn something new…

  • You should always shower in the mornings if you have an excessively oily skin. Since oil can build up during the night, then the best way to remove the oil and clear your skin pores is by having a good bath in the morning.
But you should relegate your showers to after work if you have a dry or flaky skin.
Washing in the morning with a cleanser is recommended only for oily patients, and not so much for patients who suffer from eczema or dry skin. 
L.A.-based dermatologist Tanya Kormeili, MD, told Yahoo Health.

  • You should be a morning showerer if you need to be a creative for your job. When you have a shower in the morning, your brain enters a relaxed state, and this state is perfect for coming up with good ideas.
Harvard psychology lecturer, Shelley Carson explained to Greatist:
If you were to come up with a problem that you wanted to solve creatively, and you were working and working on it and couldn’t come up with a solution, then you could put it on the back burner of your mind and allow it to stew there while unconscious processes mull it over.

  • You should be a morning showerer if you find it hard to wake up early enough in the morning, then you should stop showering at nights and leave it till the morning. For example, if you need to go out as early as 6-7 in the AM.
But you should be a night showerer if you have a hard time getting to sleep at night.
That rapid cooling after you get out of the bath tends to be a natural sleep inducer… 
Christopher Winter, M.D., a fellow at the American Academy of Sleep Medicine and medical director at the sleep center at Martha Jefferson Hospital, told Greatist.
A night shower would leave you SO relaxed. But be sure to shower at least 90 minutes before bedtime if you typically have trouble sleeping. 
Showering artificially raises the temperature again and allows for a faster cool down, which seems to hasten sleep. – Dr. Janet K. Kennedy, a clinical psychologist and sleep expert in New York.

  • You should be a morning showerer if you work out in the early morning. Of course after your morning workout, you MUST have a shower. Wouldn’t make much sense to get a shower at night, only to hop out of bed at 6a.m to start working out.
You should also shower at night if you do evening workouts. You definitely don’t want to go to bed with a sweaty body. Have a night shower after your evening workouts to wash off all the sweat.

  • You should be a night showerer if you don’t want to constantly wash your bed sheets/bedspread. You understand right? If you come home from school/work soaked in sweat and dirt, and you don’t want to ruin your bed with all that nasty skin particles, then you should have a night shower before lying on your bed.
Also, it turns out that there are lots of bacteria on your head, so if you go to bed without washing your hair in the shower for too many nights in a row, it could make your bed and pillow contaminated and your face prone to acne/pimples.

So, which is better: A Morning shower or An Evening One?

Based on expert opinion and research, showering at night is the best way to rejuvenate your skin after a long day, and prevent skin problems.
Showering in the morning and night is harmless though, as long as you don’t dwell in HOT water for too long.
“Using very hot water can reduce moisture in the skin and strip away many of the skin’s natural lubricants,” - Dr Derek V Chan, a New York-based cosmetic and medical dermatologist said. He also said that as long as you shower for just a few minutes, no more than 10 minutes, then showering twice a day is not a problem.

Annnnd, It’s all down for a healthier skin…
