Showering tips for men? Like, seriously? Isn't showering meant to be the easiest and most fuss-free aspect of grooming? Well, you'd be surprised how many men get it wrong when it comes to taking a shower, so we've assembled 5 key tips that'll get you squeaky clean and smelling fresh.
Wash, rinse and repeat
You would seriosuly be amazed how much dirt and bacteria your hair and body collects throughout a normal working day, so it's pretty essential that you use your showering time effectively in order to get your hair and body as clean and healthy as possible. Many guys think we only sweat excessively in the summer, but extra layers of clothing and sudden changes in temperature lead to sweating during the colder months too, so a good all-year-round showering routine is absolutely essential. Wash you body from head to toe with your chosen bath and shower wash product, and then repeat. Going over your body twice only takes an extra minute or two, but you'll be fully clean and refreshed throughout the day.
Wash your hair every other day
Ok, so after making our first point, we're not trying to contradict ourselves here, but washing your hair every day is more likely to do your hair more bad than good. Overwashing your hair can lead to shedding, and so it's absolutely key that you give your strands plenty of 'rest intervals' in order to get stronger, thicker looking hair. Try to go for a shampoo with Niacinamide and Zinc which are good hair thickeners.

Don't bath and shower for too long
Let's face it, we all love a nice hot shower or bath, but in reality, hot water is not doing your skin any favours at all. So, if like most men, you are keen to avoid ageing skin, keep your shower and bath time to less than 10 minutes, unless you are partial to cold showering... nah, we didn't think so.
Shower after your bath
We may think having a bath is a much more effective way of getting our body clean, but it's actually not. If you think about it, when you have a bath, you are bathing in your own dirt, therefore showering your body down with fresh water directly after your bath should be an essential part of your routine for cleaner and fresher skin and hair.
Use effective products
Gone are the days when a basic bar of soap would suffice, as many modern men are taking a lot more pride in what they put on their skin, and so should you. It's important that you select a body wash that doesn't block your pores and cleanses your body safely and effectviely. You'll want to go for a body wash that contains key ingredients that helps control the balance of moisture in the skin cells, in order to get the very best out of your skin.
