Showers. Better in the Morning or at Night?

Showers. Better in the Morning or at Night?

Nen-tam-vao-thoi-diem-nao-trong-ngay_1

Showering at night AND in the morning can be overkill, because it dries your skin out.

It also washes away the good bacteria that protects it.

Here are three times it’s better to shower at night . . .

  1.  When you wore sunblock, or had a lot of make-up on. Washing your face is okay, but the steam from a shower does a better job of cleaning off residue.
  2.  When you work in a place that isn’t very sterile, like a hospital or a daycare. In that case, shower at night so you don’t get into bed covered in germs.
  3.  When you went to the gym that day, or did anything that made you sweat a lot.

Now here are three times you should shower in the MORNING instead . . .

  1.  When you need to shave before work. Showering softens the hair up, so shaving is easier and you don’t get razor burn.
  2.  If you’re a night sweater. Obviously if you sweat all night and don’t shower, you’ll feel gross all day.
  3.  If you have really oily skin.

Oil starts building up while you sleep, and if you have REALLY oily skin, it’s probably okay to shower twice a day.

You definitely don’t want to shower more than once if you have DRY skin though.

So a surgeon rebuilt it using a skin graft from his left forearm. Which worked. That part of his tongue is still numb, and he doesn’t have taste buds there, but he can talk again.

He does have to deal with one weird side effect though. The skin from his arm still grows HAIR . . . so he has to SHAVE his tongue now.

He says it doesn’t bother him too much, and his wife doesn’t seem to notice the hair when they kiss. So he’s going au naturel for now.
