If you are a skincare lover but haven’t still upgraded your shower routine, use these 5 tips to reap all the benefits of your daily shower.
Your skin is not only restricted to your face and neck, it is in fact, the largest organ on your body, but we seem to concentrate all our efforts only on our faces.
While you prep your clothes and organize what you need to take the shower, put on a clay face mask to optimize the time.
Never have a bath or a shower if the water is too hot. Hot water dries the skin and makes it itchy –especially if your skin is prone to eczema.
Pay attention to the type of soap you use. Harsh body soaps can strip your skin of its natural body oils. Instead, go for mild body washes that feature nourishing, calming ingredients to soothe your skin.
Take the opportunity to exfoliate, but make sure you don’t overdo it. While shedding dead skin cells and dirt is paramount for products to penetrate and for your skin to look glowy, exfoliating more than once or twice a week can compromise your skin barrier. In fact, over-exfoliating can make your skin appear red, dull and flaky.
Moisturize, moisturize, moisturize. Apply lotion immediately, when your skin is still damp, this will lock the water into the skin. You would never forget your face lotion, would you? The skin on your body needs hydration too. If you are looking for some extra hydration, you can include some body oils to make your skin smooth and luminous.
