5 habits for a skin-friendly shower

5 habits for a skin-friendly shower

Who among us doesn't love a good shower?

Whether after a long day or to start the day, showers area big part of our hygiene habits. But what if your habits in the shower and immediately after are actually harming your skin?

Even though we're cleaning the skin, there are other factors that we should consider to keep the skin healthy and flourishing forever. Here are a few habits to add to your shower time to cut back on skin challenges.

1. Use cooler water temperatures

I know, hot showers are everything. And they certainly have their purpose. Hot water opens the pores and is ideal for deep cleaning. The problem, however, is that hot showers can leave the pores open for too long which can cause dry skin and ingrown hairs. Try to use cool or lukewarm water, or let cold water run over you for a few minutes before getting out of the shower.

2. Exfoliate

Exfoliating while in the shower does a lot for your skin. It unclogs the pores to prevent oil build-up and breakouts. Because your pores are clearer, your other skin products will work better. It also reduces acne scars, hyperpigmentation, and rough spots over time. It's good to exfoliate while in the shower when your pores are open for soft, glowing skin.

3. Moisturize immediately

How many of us towel off and hop right into our clothes after a shower? This is a very bad habit that causes dry, ashy, irritated skin. Once you are out of the shower, the water starts to evaporate on your skin, causing it to dry out. You need to apply an oil-based moisturizer to seal in the moisture and keep your skin soft.

4. Blot dry, not rough dry

Drying off too roughly can irritate the skin and take away necessary moisture. Instead, blot your skin gently and again, moisturize right away.

 5. Wash your towels and loofahs often

Try not to use your towel or loofah more than twice before washing them or switching for a new one. And don't be afraid to wash your body with your hands :-)

I received my second order of all Lemongrass and Patchouli products. I am so pleased with the quality. It was definitely worth the wait. I love how the products work with my skin type and natural body scent. These products are part of my self-care routine. I will ordering again very soon!

What do you have for severe eczema? My grandson is 5 months and his skin peels and cracks literally from the soles of his feet to the top of his head. We have to keep long socks on his hands because he scratches all over and starts to bleed. Please help.

Thank you for the shower tips! I’m going out to buy me a loofah today. I ordered a variety of your soaps & they are amazing. Turmeric is my favorite so far. I’ll be looking into the oils next. May you continue to have a safe & blessed business.
