I’m wondering if there’s any benefits to showering in the morning or night. Should you be showering everyday? Or every second day? Is showering at night better than in the morning? I was always confused on when to shower so I’m curious on what you guys do

I think it's really all up to personal preference, there's some bits here and there that say not to do something or when, but it's not really confirmed scientifically.

For me personally I shower every other day, or even every third day, because I have skin conditions that get severely irritated if I shower any more than that. As for morning or night that also seems to depend, but usually I shower at night to wash the filth of the day away. If I do yard work or get all sweaty I'll shower afterward so I'm not all sticky and gross lol.

But do whatever feels best for you! c:

I think it’s personal preference, but I’ve heard that showering at night can make you more relaxed and fall asleep easier.
You shouldn’t shower everyday because it can strip your body of natural oils that it needs. Also, depending on your hair type you should only be washing it 2-3 times a week because again, there are natural oils that your hair needs and washing it too much can get rid of them.

Unless your skin reacts terribly, it's absolutely fine to shower daily.

Morning or evening shower - it's upto you. There are pros and cons to both so do what fits your schedule best.

Unless you have super oily hair and skin, there is no reason to shower everyday. I shower about every three days and wash my hair every 5-6

i have long type 2-type3 curly hair, and i wash my body everyday, because i usually go outside for long periods of time, or dance for hours working on chero, or both.

i wash my hair every two-three days, sometimes everyday, if needed. i use dry shampoo on days i don’t wash, and i feel a little oily.

i use lukewarm water for body, cold for hair. makes my hair shiny, it feels nice, and i’ve read somewhere it makes it longer 🤷‍♀️
