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

Here’s a guide to making the most of your morning shower to get the best hair, skin and shaving results from your products.

  • 1

    Hair


    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.

  • 2

    Body


    The best shower gel for men cleanses thoroughly without leaving skin dry. Dove Men+Care Clean Comfort Body and Face Wash’s  MicroMoisture technology helps to lock in moisture. For rougher areas like knees and elbows, enlist the Dove Men+Care Active Clean Shower Tool, too.

    Face


    As well as being a great men’s shower gel, Dove Men+Care Clean Comfort Body and Face Wash works for faces, too. Use warm water, not hot, to rinse it off to help minimise dryness. Doing this last in the shower will also mean your face is damp for shaving, which helps give smoother results.

    Shaving


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

  • 5

    Post-shave

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

  • 6

    Deodorant

    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.
