Are you a fan of evening showers? Or do you prefer to lather up first thing in the morning?

If you said the latter, we’ve got some bad news for you. According to Swedish beauty brand Foreo, it’s advisable to shower at night rather than when you get out of bed if you want to keep your skin in tip-top condition. “It’s an argument with some very vocal proponents on both sides, but when it comes to skincare, showering in the evening really is the best option as it helps remove all of the makeup, oil, dirt, and pollutants that have accumulated throughout the day,” says Boris Raspudic, General Manager UK at Foreo.

“It seems obvious when you say it out loud, but why would you want to get into bed with dirt on your face? While showering in the morning might help wake you up and provide that much-needed time to plan your day, the benefits for your skin are much reduced,” Raspudic continued. “If you have to shower in the morning, building in a quick evening rinse will significantly help your skin’s health.”
