Okay, so there's no wrong way to shower, but you can optimize the look of your skin and strands by following a few grooming rules. Edward Tricomi, master stylist and co-founder of Warren-Tricomi Salons, and Elizabeth Tanzi, M.D., co-director of the Washington Institute of Dermatologic Laser Surgery, are your dream team for cleansing advice. On a morning when your complexion appears dull and your locks are limp, these tips can really help you turn your look around. Now dive (or in this case, step carefully) right in!

Get the temperature just right. 
"Warm water is best for a shower to be comfortable without drying out the skin," says Dr. Tanzi. "Avoid using very hot water because it strips the skin of its natural oils." Tricomi agrees, recommending luke warm water above anything else.

Lather your locks up just right. 
"When shampooing, make sure to distribute the product evenly—don't just pour it on top of your head," says Tricomi. "Put a quarter size amount into your hands and work it in all over. Make sure to get the nape of the neck, especially if you have long hair. Most people forget that and it can actually be the oiliest area. Keep scrubbing for 30-60 seconds before rinsing."

Do you leave your conditioner on for a few minutes in the shower? No need to waste your time! 
"This really doesn't make a difference," says Tricomi. "The effects of conditioners are instant because by the time you get to that step, your hair is swollen from water molecules, so the conditioner can't further penetrate your hair. Most of the benefits of standard formulas come from coating the hair's surface to smooth and protect the cuticle. And use a deep conditioner or hair mask just once a week."

Brush the right way. 
"Plastic vent brushes are best as they have multiple bristles," explains Tricomi. "Always go over your hair before you get in the shower to work through any tangles, starting at the bottom and working your way up. After you shower, brush it out again."

Cleanse your body safely. 
"Bar soap is sanitary, and can be shared if needed, but a loofah is not," warns Dr. Tanzi. "They can harbor bacteria, mold, yeast, and a host of other nasty things. If you want to use one, allow it to dry completely every day and replace it frequently."

Save face wash for later. 
"I recommend that my patients cleanse their faces at the sink so they can use lukewarm to cold water, which is better for delicate faces," says Dr. Tanzi.

Don't over-scrub. 
"Exfoliate only once or twice weekly, otherwise it can be too irritating," says Dr. Tanzi. "Shaving counts as exfoliating, so don't get too aggressive on the legs with body scrubs."

True of False: Ending with a blast of cold water will make your hair look shiny.
"True! Cold water seals the cuticle, promoting shiny hair," says Tricomi. "Hot water is drying to your hair, so rinse with the coldest blast you can handle."

Do this first thing when you get out. 
"Apply lotion right away, even when you're still damp," says Dr. Tanzi. "This serves to lock the water into the skin and moisturize it well. Your body just out of the shower is the perfect canvas for a thick moisturizer—it helps you get the most from the formula."
