    Most people these days have a shower instead of a bath to save time, water and money.

    However, it seems like the younger generation are forgetting all that – and are indulging themselves in luxurious four-hour showers as part of a new TikTok trend.

    The “everything shower” involves taking an extremely warm, steamy shower for two to four hours, soaping up every nook and cranny while blasting your favourite music.

    The indulgent practice has gone viral on TikTok, with #EverythingShower racking up over 168.9million views.

    And many Gen Z social media users are claiming it's "better than sex".

    “An everything shower with hot water and Taylor Swift is better than sex. Sorry,” social media influencer Kourv Annon, 22, told her fiancé when he questioned her lengthy scrubbing sessions.

    “I wash my hair, shave my legs, shave my armpits, deep condition, exfoliate, do my skincare.

    "I do everything in the shower,” Annon she added in a TikTok clip that racked up a staggering 8.2m views.

    Annon says she enjoys an 'everything shower' once a month for about three hours, but others are doing it more often.

    Baking influencer Nicole – known only by her first name – admits she has it once a week.

    “[I] always start with a shampoo,” the 32-year-old from Los Angeles, US, said in a TikTok which got 564,000 views.

    “Then we move on to the deep conditioner, the hair mask… and that stays in your hair for as long as it takes to get everything else done.”

    She went on to give more details of her weekly ritual – which include washing her face, shaving her entire body, exfoliating away all of her dead skin cells, and rubbing a charcoal scrub onto her armpits.

    She then washes out the hair mask and puts a leave-in conditioner on her locks.

    When she's finally out of the shower, Nicole moisturises with lotion and body oil before going through her seven-step skincare routine and sliding into her “comfiest pyjamas”.

    According to a video posted by TikTok-verified, board-certified dermatologist, Dr. Lindsey Zubritsky, a long priming process like Nicole’s is nearly perfection.

    “There is a right and a wrong way to do [everything in that shower],” Zubritsky advised in a TikTok tutorial with 426,000 views.

    "Tackling your hair first is a good call.

    “If you’re waiting until the end of your shower to rinse out your conditioner, that conditioner can sit on the skin, clog your pores and lead to back and chest acne."

    She then advised people to exfoliate the skin before shaving with gel in order to reduce the risk of irritation and razor bumps.

    Finally, the expert said to wash the body off, double cleanse the face, dry the hair with a microfibre towel and apply a moisturiser to damp skin for extra hydration.

    Not everyone is happy about the trend though.

    “You know what needs to b f**king talked about? f**king draining an everything shower is,” said one TikTok detractor named Carly in a post.

    “It’s not even enjoyable,” she added, saying that she hates showering in hot water.

    “I just dread it… It’s literally my f**king exercise for the whole f**king week. I literally have to motivate myself to do it because it f**king takes it out of me.”

    Another added: "So why is no one talking about how we are wasting water?"

    "You either hate them or love them," concluded a third.
