The ideal shower routine – what should I be doing first?
Wash your hair
It is great to shampoo your hair first and apply your conditioner afterwards. This way you can leave your conditioner to sink in more effectively while you do other things. If it suits you better, feel free to clip it up away from your shoulders and look forward to silky smooth hair later.
Cleanse your face
After being in the shower for a few minutes, the steam will have started to open up the pores on your face and you will get a much deeper cleanse. Try the NIVEA Creme Care Facial Cleansing Cream for an invigorating cleanse with Eucerit and panthenol for wonderfully soft and supple skin.
It is never a good idea to shave when you first get into the shower and this could even lead to cuts. After you have been in the water for a bit, your skin and hairs will start to soften and you will get a much closer shave.
Wash your body
Washing your body should ideally be the last thing you do in the shower. This way you can be sure that you’re washing off any residues from your shampoo and conditioner, which could otherwise irritate your skin if it is particularly sensitive.
Using a towel that’s nice and soft, gently squeeze out your hair, before putting it in a head towel to dry and start drying your skin using gentle patting motions.
