We’ve been showering our whole lives, so you’d think by now we’d have it down pat. As with everything there are always new tips and tricks that pop up on the Internet to tell us what we’ve been doing wrong and for confidence boosting with what we are doing right. We learned some tricks that we are going to start incorporating along the way and we wanted to break them down right here for you.
HOT WATER FLOODS
Flooding your shower with hot water is a big no no when taking a shower. Experts actually say that warm showers are a lot better than taking a scalding hot shower. Very hot showers remove a lot of your natural oils and can leave your skin dry, which is not good for anybody but especially someone who is more prone to dry skin. Make sure that your water is at skin temperature or a little bit warmer for the best shower for your skin.
The best way to make sure that your skin stays nice and moisturized is to keep your showers between 5 and 10 minutes. Even though it is so tempting to stay in the water for 30 minutes, try and keep those natural oils intact by shortening your shower. (This helps save water too!)
PERFUME BASED PRODUCTS
One of the most important elements to anyone’s shower routine is to keep it simple! We only use products that are going to help and nourish skin. Switching to natural body products really makes all the difference in your skin. PON CARES is our absolute #1 go-to because there are absolutely no parabens or sulfates that damage skin and hair. Only Pure, Organic and Natural ingredients that help skin stay soft and moisturized.
ROUGH TOWEL DRYING
Most people vigorously rub their bodies dry with a towel as soon as they get out of the shower. This is a mistake! What you really should be doing is patting your body dry with a towel. Just enough to keep skin damp and not dripping. When your skin is damp, that is when you need to be using lotions to help lock in moisture.
Using these tips will help keep your skin healthy and glowing. Treat your skin right and incorporate a couple of these into your routine.
