I shower when I get up in the morning and again right before going to bed at night.

It's summer so I wake up, start the coffee, check my emails, start the toast, prepare my coffee and almond butter toasted sandwich for breakfast, and start the movie that I downloaded the day before. I decided I'd watch a "good" movie a day while I have the free time. Today was Brazil, yesterday was The Breakfast Club, tomorrow will be There Will Be Blood.

brazil is pretty awesome and there will be blood is currently my favorite movie, good picks.

on weekdays, I get up at 5, shower. Then turn on the tv, which goes right to cheaters. If cheaters doesn't suck me in, I switch it to the news and check styleforum. Get dressed, deoderant, teeth, hair and then leave by 6.

Wake up at 5:45am and turn on the coffee maker with my special African blend coffee.

Drink a cup of water and fall asleep until 6:00am

Wake up, drink 2 cups of green tea, rinse my mouth with Listerine.

Hit the gym until 6:45 - run 5km and some light lifting.

Come back, brush my teeth, floss, shower etc.

Get dressed, and face another day.

...ok I keep telling myself that's what tommorow is going to be like but I keep getting closer I swear

Cool thing somebody bumped this. I was just about to start a thread on the same topic. Anyway, here's my daily routine:

  1. Wake up.
  2. Lie in bed half-awake while I hear the morning news, fall asleep and wake up again half an hour to an hour later, when my third, fourth or fifth "final" alarm has been buzzing for a while and realize I'm running late, again.
  3. Crawl out of bed and into the bathroom.
  4. Brush teeth.
  5. Take a leak.
  6. If time enough and/or a shave is due (every 1-5 days or so, depending on what I will do that day (i.e. any important meetings, dates, etc.) and how tired I am in the morning).
    1. Wash face with water.
    2. Apply shaving gel/foam.
    3. Shave (with Mach 3 razor).
  7. Enter shower.
    1. Wash hair with cheap, general store shampoo.
    2. Wash body with cheap, general store body lotion/body soap.
    3. Apply cheap, general store conditioner (if time, let it sit in for a while before rinsing).
    4. Wash face with facial cleanser (currently Boss gray/blue-gray thingie).
    5. Wash face with facial scrub (currently Boss gray/blue-gray thingie, only every 7 days or so).
  8. Leave shower and realize I forgot to bring a towel into the bathroom.
  9. Walk around apartment, dripping wet, trying to locate a clean towel.
  10. Dry hair with towel.
  11. If time, dry body with towel.
  12. Put on boxer and socks.
  13. Apply deodorant or antiperspirant.
  14. Take vitamins and omega 3 while drying and locating my clothes for the day.
  15. If time, make a protein shake and possibly some breakfast.
  16. Get dressed.
  17. Consume protein shake.
  18. Apply face moisturizer.
  19. Apply hair wax.
  20. Put on outerwear and shoes.
  21. Grab breakfast, and any other items I need to bring (i.e. bag, bacpack, etc.) and run to catch the bus.

In the evening I sometimes take a shower and/or wash my face with cleanser again, but I tend to forget this or not be bothered. Only step I never skip is brushing my teeth before bed.

I am curious, I prefer to shave before showering, since then I don't have to wash my face twice (to get rid of shaving gel/foam), but after shaving, washing with facial cleanser tends to sting a bit. How do you normally do this? Do you cleanse the face before or after shaving? And if using a scrub, when do you do that?
