Exactly this, especially about the "barbershop" method of shampooing/rinsing in the shower.

Where we differ is that I really only tolerate water on my face with my eyes shut. I find even plain water on my sclera and tear ducts uncomfortable, and I am a lot more sensitive than other people to soap/shampoo in my eyes. I do still soap up my face and let the shower rinse it off, but I do it with caution and I "overclose" my eyes while doing so (a really consciously-applied, tight eye closing/scrunching).
