We can all agree that sometimes there's nothing more relaxing than a long, hot shower after a stressful, busy day. Moreover, it's so soothing to end the night with a warm bubble bath before bed. But also, sometimes nothing wakes us up more than a refreshing shower early in the morning, and there are some unexpected mental benefits of taking a cold shower.

Whether you like your showers warm, cold, or steaming hot, there's no denying that TikTok's relatable "everything shower" trend is all about self-care. When someone takes an everything shower, they typically spend an ultra-long time in the shower, diligently washing their hair and skin and shaving their bodies to look and feel their best, often getting sleepy from all that time in the shower (via TikTok). Many shower-loving people enjoy experimenting with different products such as shower gels, shampoos, shaving creams, and conditioners during their everything showers, and have some go-to products they use during quicker everyday showers. Regardless of which soaps, gels, and hair products people typically prefer, one product that everyone will find helpful for any shower experience is a shower mirror.

It will be convenient for shaving

We've all been there: We have one arm raised and just finished spreading shaving cream all over our armpit with the other hand — without a mirror. Then, we have our head drastically turned to watch our movement and progress as we carefully shave our armpit. A few minutes into shaving the first armpit, we wind up with a sore neck and a wobbly feeling from having our head turned and our vision fixated on the shaving. And after all that effort, we end up missing a few hairs and have to go back and shave more. This situation is annoying and tiring — and happens too frequently. But a shower mirror can help. Looking in the mirror as you shave your armpits won't force you to keep turning your head and neck, as you'll be watching your progress in the mirror instead, helping you feel more comfortable.

A shower mirror will make it easier to shave other body parts, too. For example, we all know that shaving our legs can be frustrating, and it's near impossible not to miss a spot. However, shaving legs in front of a shower mirror should make it significantly easier to monitor progress and see which hairs we may have missed when shaving, then go back and shave those previously missed areas.

Shower mirrors are perfect for steamy photos

Every day, countless mirror selfies are taken. These mirror selfies frequently occur in bathrooms, so why not go for a more unique, artsy spin on the mirror selfie by opting for a shower mirror pic instead? Of course, taking a sultry picture of your reflection in your shower mirror with no clothes on can make a sexy and exciting gift for your special someone if that's something you'd be comfortable doing. After all, why pay for a boudoir photoshoot when you can take seductive shower pics at home? Or, if you're single, consider taking these pictures of your reflection for yourself only to remind yourself of how naturally beautiful you look.

However, shower mirror photos don't have to be sexual or provocative. There are more than 53,000 posts dedicated to #showerselfie on Instagram at the time of writing, as you can get super creative with your shower photo sessions. If you're not comfortable taking nude photographs, try instead taking your pictures in your favorite bathing suit, wrapped in a towel, or even in a beautiful dress. Don't be afraid to get artistic, and have fun with it — you'll likely end up with some stunning content for social media.

A shower mirror can be an accident preventer and a confidence booster

Having a mirror in your shower can prevent you from getting hurt. Unfortunately, accidents can happen in the shower, such as slipping or hitting your head. Looking in the mirror while showering can make you more aware, preventing those injuries from happening. Moreover, it's a good idea to consistently check your body for bumps, moles, and lumps to make sure your body is healthy or see if you need to get anything looked at by a professional. Your shower is an excellent place for those self-examinations, and a mirror should make the process easier and more thorough.

Furthermore, having a mirror in your shower can be empowering; looking at your naked, unfiltered reflection can help you appreciate your body and recognize the many beautiful details about yourself you may not have noticed before. Plus, looking at yourself while you shower might inspire you to try a new look you wouldn't have thought of previously. For example, if your hair looks darker when it's wet, you might realize you love how it appears that way and feel inspired to darken your hair color.

Additionally, mirrors can add an exciting new element to sexy showers with your partner or partners. If the idea of being able to watch the antics happening during your sexy shower time with your partner, partners, or yourself turns you on, you'll likely love having a mirror in your shower.
