I don't remember earwax being a problem two years ago.
I'm sure my shower routine hasn't changed. Shower at least once a day; preferably twice but who has the time, what with blogging and drinking and watching movies? :-)
Drench with hot water; lather up the face and shave (I've never shaved with a mirror and I wouldn't know how). Scrub the soles of the feet and soap between the toes. And so on, you can fill in the details, this isn't an erotic cabaret :-)
But of late I've been noticing an excess of earwax. Not enough to make candles but rather more than I remember. Another sign of advancing years? *shrug*
