Morning or evening? Hot or cold? When and how you shower can have implications on your skin

Tom Elliott

Taking a quick and cool shower is better for your skin than a long and hot one, according to a leading dermatologist.

Speaking on 3AW Drive, Associate Professor at the Australasian College of Dermatologists, Dr Stephen Shumack, advised against taking long, hot showers. 

‘What that does is it tends to dry out the skin, it makes you much more prone to developing itchy rashes like eczema or dermatitis and if you’ve got conditions like acne, it will tend to make that worse’, he told Tom Elliott.

Dr Shumack said there is no evidence to suggest that taking a shower in the evening is better than the morning.

‘I think it’s almost a psychological need that some people want to have a shower at night’, he said.
