WE GET IT. You don’t always have the time and energy to make the most out of a shower sesh, especially when you’re running late. But trust us, you'll be surprised that the little things you do before stepping out of the bathroom can go a long way for your beauty and health. How, exactly? Read on.
1. Scalp massage
Pour a bit more shampoo on your palms and massage it on your scalp slowly. This not only relaxes you while you shower, it also keeps your blood circulating, stimulating hair growth in the process. Want to know a fab shampoo that's perfect for scalp massage when you shower? Try Head and Shoulders Smooth and Silky! It has a great scent that would also help relax you in the shower.
2. Rinse soap off COMPLETELY
Don’t wipe the leftover bubbles on your nape as you dry off instead of going back to the shower, because not rinsing properly may actually cause irritation and dryness, especially if you’ve been using harsh body soaps. Make sure you rinse soap completely off your body.
3. Cool down
Want tight pores and flawless-looking skin? Before you step out after a lukewarm shower, splash your face with icy cold water. This will also improve blood circulation on your face for a post-shower glow.
4. Pat dry
Avoid toweling down and dressing up quickly because this rough skin treatment might just worsen your dry skin. Keep some moisture from your shower sesh by patting gently instead of rubbing your towel like a sandpaper over a piece of wood.
Make sure you also lock in moisture on your skin by hydrating right after a shower. Studies have shown that the skin absorbs products more effectively after bathing, so slather on some lotion or body oil before stepping out.
6. Clean up
Before leaving the bathroom, line up your bottles of shampoos and body soaps. Perk: Decluttering can also give you some time to focus on your to-do list for the day!
7. Blow dry safely.
Hair experts suggest it’s best to keep your blow dryer at least 8 inches away form your crowning glory so you don't damage your strands or burn your skin.
