Showering is a daily activity for most people, and is great to wash away any grubbiness and feel revitalised. But if you’re not slapping on the moisturiser straight after stepping out of the bathroom, you could be asking for trouble.
When you moisturise, some of the water gets trapped on your skin to help keep skin moist. Because you want to trap some of that water, you need to moisturize immediately after you shower.
And it’s not just about moisturising, if you really want to treat your skin right, you’ve got to exfoliate. According to Hello Giggles, dry skin is missing an important moisture barrier, which causes all the discomfort. To help the moisturiser penetrate into the skin, make sure to exfoliate!
This helps your moisturiser to penetrate deeply into the skin, locking in natural oils, and aiding in repairing. Depending on the ingredients of the lotion you use, applying it over cracked, dry skin can cause burning and inflammation.
In fact, your post-shower regime should be your skincare 101, where you spend a few minutes making sure your whole body is given some TLC. Some more tips from Hello Giggles…
Add a shot of ceramides to your face lotion to maintain the lipid layer on your face. Also, drink lots of fluids, especially water. Eat plenty of omega-3 and omega-6 oils, which help boost your skin’s hydrating functions. Also, and this one hurts, she says we should turn down our shower temps. Because hot water removes the lipids from the surface of your skin, moisture leaks out and skin becomes dry. Hello Giggles also suggests that we invest in a lotion that we love, because that will make us want to use it all the time. We know we have to make a serious commitment to keeping our skin soft.
