    My approach: I wash my face as the last step before finishing my shower - get the benefit of steam opening up my pores and I noticed the foam/gel/soap cleansers work better. But I don't jump in the shower with full face of makeup 😅 always remove my makeup first with micellar water.

    TBH it doesn't really matter. Wash your face before or after the shower, just do it well. All that matters is that you double cleanse and get the gunk off thoroughly.

    I think it's easier to wash your face after a shower. I don't like stressing about shampoo and conditioner getting on my face so I prefer to take care of everything face skincare-wise after a shower.

    For me it kind of depends on the day... I wash my face in the shower if I'm not washing my hair that day. I'll start with the oil cleanser on my face before turning on the water, massage it on a bit, and then wash it all off with my body soap. I then do my water-based cleanser in the shower. I find this works best for saving time and also like the steam action that my face gets too!

    My personal experience: I wash my face after my shower. I live to take long showers and there's a lot of shampoo and conditioner that inevitably runs down my face when I take a shower. After stepping out of my shower, I'll gentle wipe off any water and get right into my double cleansing routine. That way, I can be sure that there's no lingering residue of anything on my face before I get into my skincare routine!

    Please wash your face after the shower!! You want to make sure none of the hair products are left on your face in the end.
