How to shower like a professional
Chances are you’re doing it wrong!
Since you do it daily, so better do it right. Even the simplest shower has a technique involved! Quick movement, smart usage and occasional treats to the body are just a bunch of things you need. Turn yourself into a perfect-shower king with our tips for an efficient clean!
CLEAN IT RIGHT, ONLY IN THIS ORDER
Below the knees
KEEP A TAB ON THE FREQUENCY
All day, everyday isn’t imperative! Five times a week is ideal, unless you're super-dirty and deserve a gentle clean.
MAKE IT QUICK
We love long showers but unfortunately they aren't good. Stick to 10 minutes or prepare for dry skin (and a smirk from your boss for getting late to work).
CHECK THE TEMPERATURE
Too warm isn't good! Check before you wreck. More than your fingers, your wrist would work best! Switch on the shower, put the wrist forward and verify once if the temperature’s comfortable.
THE HAIR GAME
Four to five times a week! Massage deep into the scalp to remove the excess oil. Rinse thoroughly and follow with a conditioner to restore moisture back into your hair.

BODY WASH FOR YOU
Bar soaps are vintage! Pick the most gentle, as per your skin-type and something water-based. If your skin is dry, opt for ones with hydrators!

LESSER-KNOWN CRUCIAL: EXFOLIATION
Get dead-skin cells and dry patches off! Invest in a loofah or opt for exfoliants containing synthetic round beads. Keep a light hand while scrubbing and limit to one or two times a week. Follow with a moisturiser!

THE SHOWER SHAVE
Try a wet shave at the end of your shower. Soften your facial hair with mildly warm water, raze it clean, splash with cold water and complete with an after-shave lotion!

‘WASH’ YOUR FEET
Running them through water doesn’t count as cleaning. Scrub your toes and the bottom of your feet with a soap-ridden loofah!
CLEAN YOUR LITTLE
Give it a shower like the rest of your body. Your groin gathers sweat and deserves a soapy intervention!
