What is a good shower routine? My showers are taking an hour

Customer Question

What is a good shower routine? My showers are taking an hour or more bc I dont feel I am doing them right or am missing spots and not getting clean so I was wondering what a good routine is from start to finish and how long a good shower should take.

Start at the top of the head and go in a circle down. That way the soap will get the skin below it as wellYou shouldn't take more than 20 minutes in the showerhead to toe

Do I need to lather every single part of my body to get clean or is it okay if I miss a few spots?

Expert:  DocPhilMD replied 1 year ago.
it is totally fine if you miss a few spots
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

What parts can I not miss?

Expert:  DocPhilMD replied 1 year ago.
Key spots are armpits, genitals, bottom and feet
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

So as long as I lather those spots I could lather nothing else and be clean?

Expert:  DocPhilMD replied 1 year ago.
For the most part yes. I just mean that missing spots in these areas is not as critical
