Well. According to researchers it's best to shower at night, bc it helps cool your body down and relax you into sleep mode.

Dr. Dianne Augelli, a researcher at the Center for Sleep Medicine at New York — Presbyterian/Weill Cornell Medical Center, says that the key is timing your shower around 90 minutes before bed.

“You don’t want to heat yourself up right before bed,” Augelli told Time magazine. “Cooling down is a signal that tells us we’re supposed to go to sleep.” According to studies, this is true for both young and old people.

Augelli also suggests that allowing 90 minutes gives you enough time to let your hair dry and for you to properly ~chill out~ post-shower.

I mean, most of us are out all night partying, or binge-watching our fave TV shows, or writing in our diaries about why our cats don't love us enough (just me?) and listen, we're just TOO DAMN BUSY to plan out a shower an hour and a half before bed.
