It’s never too early in the day to moisturise your skin, especially in summer. You can start hydrating and pampering your dry and dull skin while you are in the shower and flaunt plump and soft skin all day.
Summer is in its peak and since the summer heat can cause your skin to dehydrate your skin from inside leading to dry skin on your face, it’s necessary to slather your skin with a moisturiser. Moisturising your body while showering has umpteen benefits; it helps retain moisture, prevent skin from the drying effects of hot water and keeps your skin hydrated from within.
So, keep reading to know three ways to moisturise your skin in the shower for healthy and happy summer skin.
Slather on a body oil
Treating your skin with a nourishing oil before a shower helps hydrate your seriously dry skin and creates a protective barrier from water. Heat any oil of your choice and slather it on your body. You can use coconut oil or mustard oil. Don’t forget the often-neglected parts like your knees and elbows. Massage the oil onto your body for five minutes for it to be absorbed by the skin and take a shower with lukewarm water.
Use a moisturising body wash
If you are using soap to wash your body, you need to ditch it for body cream right away as it can dry out your skin. Instead of soap, opt for moisturising body creams and gels. They provide the beauty benefits of natural ingredients and leave skin moisturised when you hop out of the shower. Pick a soap-free body wash like the Love Beauty & Planet Coconut Water and Mimosa Flower Aroma Radical Refresher Body Wash that is enriched with moisturising ingredients and gives your skin a boost of hydration.
Use a body lotion on damp skin
Right after you come out of the shower, your skin still has moisture which quickly goes away when you towel-dry your body. The result is dry and parched skin. Before you towel dry your body, slather on a hydration lotion such as the Vaseline Intensive Care Aloe Fresh Body Lotion on your skin while it’s still damp. This will help lock in the moisture and keep your skin looking and feeling hydrated for long.
