Did you know your bath time ritual can play a huge role on the condition of your skin? Here are six shower hacks you should do to have flawless, glowing, and youthful skin:
1. Go for the cold.
We know how good hot baths are at the end of a long and stressful day, but scalding water strips away your skin’s natural moisture and may even lead to mild burns. Cold and lukewarm showers, on the other hand, help retain the skin’s moisture, prevent varicose veins, speed up metabolism, and relax your muscles.
2. Give your loofah a rest.
Your loofah scrubs away dead skin cells which get stuck in the nooks of your sponge. They can harbor bacteria (yuck!) so make sure to change them every 2-3 weeks.
3. Exfoliate wisely.
Do it once or twice a week, and stay away from products with microbeads. These little nasties not only create small tears in your skin, but also contribute to water pollution. If you have the time, just make a scrub of your own using olive oil and brown sugar. For stubborn dark spots, trade your sugar for salt to promote brighter skin.
4. Ditch the harsh soaps.
If you don’t want to end up with dry and scaly skin, ditch harmful bath soaps. Switch to a gentle, skin-loving product like Jergens Anti-Bacterial Bar Soap or Jergens Mild Bar Soap. Both remove dirt and bacteria without stripping away your skin’s natural moisture.
5. Save the shaving for later.
To prevent razor bumps and ingrown hairs, delay shaving until the end of your shower. The heat and steam open up follicles and soften the hair, making it easier to achieve a close shave. Finally, use a good quality razor and never skip the shaving cream!
6. Follow the 3-minute moisturizing rule.
Apply your lotion within 3 minutes after stepping out of shower, while your skin is still damp. This will lock the moisture better.
