How do people justify that? Let's assume daily showering these days is shaveh le-chol nefesh, still, that should only permit heating water on YT but not taking water from the tap and heating fresh water that you're not even using, and secondly, isn't there still an issur derabbanan to shower in a shower lest you come to bathe your entire body?

why would you be using water unnecessarily? secondly, the is no problem to bathe your whole body, just a problem of changing substances eg. soap.

I thought the problem WAS bathing your whole body, and that Chassidic types need to bend over backwards justifying mikve on Shabbas, because you aren't supposed to do that!
רמב"ם הלכות תשובה פרק העשירי, הלכה ב

העובד מאהבה - עוסק בתורה ובמצוות והולך במתיבות החוכמה לא מפני דבר בעולם, לא מפני יראת הרעה ולא כדי לירש הטובה, אלא עושה האמת מפני שהוא אמת

הלכה ג

אהבה גדולה יתרה רבה עזה עד מאד, עד שתהא נפשו קשורה באהבת השם ... וכל שיר השירים משל הוא לענין זה
