You have mastered the quick shower and you’re proud of that. But did you know that your shower routine can provide more than good hygiene? These shower hacks will put you on the track for your best skin and hair.
Cool the water down
Steaming hot water may feel amazing, but it dries out moisture from your skin. Hot water removes natural oils like nothing else, so if you really love it, spend several minutes in hot water and then turn the temperature down.
Lather the right way
A proper shampooing shouldn’t take longer than a minute, but don’t just plop the product on top of your head. Pour the shampoo into your hand and gently massage into your scalp in order to distribute it evenly. Avoid massaging directly into your hair ends. Instead, focus on the area where the roots collect the most oil: the nape of your neck.
Cleanse Your Face
If you’re finding breakouts and redness on your face, lack of a good cleanser could be a reason. Be sure to steer clear of soaps that are irritating and drying to the skin. Choose a soap-free face wash, like the A Complete Youth Preservative Deep Cleanser, that hydrates the skin and keeps it healthy and bright. Washcloths and loofahs can also be breeding grounds for mold and bacteria, so opt for products and shower routines that do not require them.
Wrap your hair in a T-shirt
Tired of taming frizzy hair? Towels can absorb too much water and moisture out of the hair, causing frizz. Next time, try drying your hair with a cotton T-shirt and say hello to beautiful, smooth, and frizz-free locks.
Yes, it’s true, you can moisturize in the shower. And that is actually a great idea because good lotion can hold moisture in the skin. It is recommended to find an in-shower moisturizer, but you can even use plain coconut oil.
We know that there are mornings when we can only jump in the shower, lather, and quickly get going. But following these tips can make a difference in how you feel about your skin and hair, setting you up for a great day ahead!
