All of us appreciate the power of a great shower. Whether it’s a cold morning shower to help you fully wake up, or a hot evening shower to help you relax after a tiring day at work, showers are god-sent!
And we’ll tell you a little secret—your beloved skincare routine starts in the shower. Here’s a list of the easiest shower habits you can adopt to make a huge difference in the look and feel of your skin...
- Avoid soap bars completely or stick to natural soaps
- Use a loofah sponge
- Use moisturising products
- Use natural oils
Avoid soap bars completely or stick to natural soaps
Avoid using soap bars as much as you can and opt for a body wash instead, but if you must use a soap then go for a natural one! Using a natural soap has a large number of skin benefits—they’re gentle, protect your skin and repair damage without stripping the skin of its essential nutrients. The Lever Ayush Purifying Turmeric Soap purifies the skin, cures skin infections and enhances skin glow.
If you can avoid soap bars then use a moisturising body wash such as the Lux Soft Touch Body Wash with French Rose and Almond Oil for extra benefits.
Use a loofah sponge
A loofah can sometimes over exfoliate your skin because it has a harder fibers. Therefore it is advisable to use a loofah sponge to eliminate dead skin cells and give you smoother legs. ]
Use moisturising products
Your skin’s pores are open while you’re in the shower, thanks to all the moisture and steam. This means that your skin is extra-absorbent at this time. Use a light moisturiser like the Pond’s Triple Vitamin Moisturising Lotion to help it sink deep into your skin to leave it hydrated and conditioned.
Use natural oils
Oil massaging your skin is a great way of enhancing circulation, de stressing, and nourishing the skin. Using natural, cold-pressed oil such as almond or coconut oil helps nourish and plump the skin for a dewy, healthy glow without clogging pores or causing breakouts.
