Love your morning shower to wake you up? We'll tell you why you should reconsider your rhythm in winter and why it's better not to take a shower in the morning.
Shower in the morning or in the evening? In principle, this is probably a matter of taste and has very different advantages and disadvantages in each case. In winter, on the other hand, there is a decisive argument against the morning shower.
Especially in winter, many suffer from skin problems due to the dry, cold air. Chapped hands, chapped cheeks, and dry legs are unfortunately not uncommon in the dark months. Redness and itching are often associated symptoms that plague us in the cold season.
Anyone who now decides to take a shower in the morning increases the drying process of the skin and thus the existing skin problems. A natural oil film forms on our skin at night, as it regenerates itself during sleep and is thus supplied with moisture. Jumping straight into the shower after getting up not only washes away the nourishing film but also dries the skin out further with hot water and soap.
So if you suffer from itchy, dry skin, you should opt for a pleasant shower in the evening, especially in winter. In this way, the skin can be supplied with the moisturizing film throughout the day, while you can provide it with rich creams and lotions in the evening after the shower. Slipping under the duvet freshly showered and warmed up also has a positive effect on our sleep!
