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


    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


    The best shower gel for men cleanses thoroughly and helps to prevent skin dryness. 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 dual-sided shower tool found in Dove Men+Care Total Care Shower Tool Gift Set too

    Washing your face last will mean your face is still damp for shaving, which helps give smoother results. Use a hydrating product like 
    Dove Men+Care Hydrate Face Wash and rinse with warm water, not hot, to help minimise dryness 

  • 4


    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 a post-shave balm after your shower. It will help to keep skin smooth and comfortable

  • 6


    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
