Men’s shower gel and beyond: making the most of your shower

    Washing your hair first means any shampoo residue left behind on your skin will get washed away while you continue with the rest of your shower

    The best shower gel for men cleanses thoroughly without leaving skin dry. Dove Men+Care Clean Comfort Body and Face Wash Soap features our hydrating formula to provide healthier, stronger skin. This moisturising body wash for men helps to protect your skin against dryness and irritation, while delivering a refreshing clean and total skin comfort.

    When cleansing your face, use warm water (not hot) to wash to help minimise dryness. Doing this last in the shower will also mean your face is damp for shaving, which helps give smoother results

    The steam from a shower can help to soften facial hair, so it’s easier for your razor to cut through stubble

  • 5

    Reduce the chances of shaving rash by applying post-shave balm after your shower. It will help to keep skin smooth and comfortable

    Waiting until your body has cooled down after a shower before applying antiperspirant deodorant will help it perform to its best potential. Hot showers open skin’s pores, making it less receptive to any antiperspirant applied afterwards
