(Inside Manila) It has always been debatable: when is the best time to shower? Well, this long over-discussed question was answered and experts say—night showers are the best.


In a report by the Daily Mail Online, New York dermatologist Dr. Samer Jaber said that scrubbing both the face and body at night is important to one's own skin health.


"If you're out all day and sweaty or working out you should definitely shower before going to bed," said Dr. Jamer.


A research from Harvard University has also shown that those who find it difficult to sleep at night might find help in showering during the evening. However, you need to shower 90 minutes in advance before bedtime for it to be effective.


“The body naturally cools down as bedtime approaches, in sync with the circadian rhythm,” explains Dr. Janet K. Kennedy, a clinical psychologist and sleep expert in New York, told The New York Times. “Showering artificially raises the temperature again and allows for a faster cool down, which seems to hasten sleep.” she added.


Now that it's official, will your shower routine change? Let us know!
