Should I Shower in the Morning or at Night?

It's a question that has befuddled scholars, flummoxed scientists, and torn families apart - when is the right time to take a shower? Advocates on both sides of the argument are ready to throw down with any who question their desired shower time.

Morning showerers believe it's the only way to truly start each day. Nighttime showerers find it's the only way to relax before bed.

So after consulting with our team of shower experts and researching the world wide web - we've discovered that the definitive answer truly depends on your distinct characteristics.

Now, that may seem like a disappointing answer, but there are benefits to showering in the morning and at night. It's really about identifying the type of person you are and how it fits into your daily routine.

Shower in the morning if you:

Are creative. We get our best ideas in the shower due to the relaxing, isolating environment. So if your job requires you to develop creative, compelling ideas on a daily basis, it's best to begin each day in the shower.

Work out in the morning. It doesn't make much sense to shower at night only to wake up and sweat it up at the gym. It would be pretty gross to sit at work all day bearing the stench of your treadmill.

Have oily skin. Our skin builds up oils during the night. If you tend to build up oils more than others, a shower in the morning is the perfect way to flush out the pores.

Shower at night if you:

Can't sleep. Showering relaxes the senses. Plus scientifically, when you hop out of a hot shower, the cooling sensation is a natural sleep inducer.

Enjoy clean sheets. Let's just get this out of the way, if you don't shower before you go to sleep, and you don't wash your sheets often, your bedsheets are a living, breathing embodiment of everything you interacted with during the day. So, yeah, there's that.

Are dirty. This may seem like a no-brainer, but if you work in not so clean environments, it's wise to take a shower at night and separate yourself from the germs of the day.
